Happy Easter April Fool’s Day! Blasphemy ahoy in the start of this episode so be warned. Universal Geek loves its tasty, tasty blasphemy!

First up we talk about Kickstarter, again. Reddit.com did a rundown on the 9-year-old who wants to learn how to program and her millionaire mother who has done a few other Kickstarters with weak premises. We praised it last week and this week, not so much. As always, Universal Geek is not the place to get Kickstarter investment advice. Heck, we were already to pay for Cobra Commander’s new Headquarter.

Prepare for a lot of NASA awesomeness in this episode as well because space if awesome and we need to get off this stinking rock! Stick out the entire episode for an installment of Episode 57!
