Geek Life Crisis

Welcome to Geek Life Crisis. Who are Steve and Chuck? We have time-traveled to present-day fro the 20th Century (via aging) and now do a comedy podcast. We reminisce about college days while commenting on current geek culture. You'll visit for the geek info, and then we'll yell at you to get off our VR lawns. We are Gen X... in a Millennial World. (Sung to the tune of Madonna's "Material World".)

Episode 24 - RIP Old Chum - Adam West Tribute

Our tribute to television's first Batman, Adam West. Chuck and I hit the highlights of Mr. West's life and career, in our own personal style (yes we send him off in Spock's photon torpedo... that's how we do).   There's trivia and a little quiz at the end.

This was a special episode to us, so we asked for a little help from our friends.  I asked them to send in promos that also talked about Adam West.  And I was really happy to include their submissions.  It made the episode more fun for me, and I hope it does for you as well.  In order of placement in the show, and where you can find them:

Large Marge Sent Us - Podcast on iTunes and wherever the best pods are found.

The Podcouple - Podguy and Podgirl drop in with their Batman beat, go find their pod too!

MissGeek89 - she's got an amazing Instagram account, that is growing in leaps and bounds.  Who knew she had a cool accent?  (I know, I probably have the New York accent to her and many of you.) Go follow her and tell her "Geek Life Crisis sent me"  (sorry sweeties!)

Ashe976 - our #1 fan, Kentucky's finest, Ashley!  Find her on Instagram also!  She's a true geek through and through, and we need more fans like her.


That's it for now... I'm fried as usual after editing, otherwise I'd write more.

Hello friends!

This episode we were lucky enough to talk with two of the most popular performers in American Sideshow: Donny Thomas and Adam Realman.

They both cut their teeth (no pun intended with regard Donny) at The Coney Island Sideshow, now known as "Sideshows by the Seashore".  Coney Island has been the epicenter for NY Sideshow performance, with a foothold on the boardwalk for over 100 years.

We discuss PT Barnum, the rise and fall of the American circus.  Adam needs your phone books!  Otherwise he may tear your cell phone in half instead.  Donny schools us on sideshow definition of geek!  And we hear about sideshow acts that went wrong for them as well as audience members.

Adam and Donny are professionals, don't try any of these stunts at home.  Instead, go to Coney Island and sign up for a class.  Adam is actually the dean of the school in which he was once taught. 

Donny Vomit is on tour with "Strange for Hire", and Adam remains part of the vital local sideshow scene.  Here's how you can keep up with them on the interwebs:  (Adam)  (Donny)

On Instagram, Facebook, and the Twitter:




Also, check for this year's "Sideshows by The Seashore" schedule. 

Come out to Coney Island for the Labor Day weekend "Mustache and Beard Contest".  I'll be there for a follow up interview, and try to win the contest.  (Not likely.) Also the Mermaid Parade! 

One more thing!  We have a show producer!  Allan David hooked us up with these two guests, and we really appreciate it. We look forward to doing more work with Allan.  He's @hexo66 on Instagram, go follow him.  Thanks Allan!

Your Ringmaster,

Our review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Geek Chat:  Chuck and fam might have enjoyed Christmas in the crapper.  Steve didn't like his Loot Crate toy.  Oh no!

Geek News: Bladerunner's Decker is back and older than ever, Lost in Space: Is Doctor Smith still creepy? Star Trek: Discovery gets new cast member. 

Geek Birthdays included: Samuel L. Jackson, Harry Shearer, and Ralph Fiennes!  There is a brief geek quiz for each.

This episode I added an "INSIDE JOKE" drop, because Chuck and I seem to have these from time to time, and I don't always want to cut them.  Feel free to ask if you are interested.

EXPLICIT RATING earned just because we talk about Samuel L. Jackson's favorite curse.

No Geek "In Memorium" this episode, but in our future "extended cut you will hear our good-byes to John Glenn.  RIP John Glenn!  Oh, and Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Finally we review Rogue One.  We talk about the characters and plot and give our potato rating.  Chuck does something he says is unprecedented in the annals of our show.  Turns out it may have been precedented in the annals after all. 

Enjoy!  The song at the end is silly, not my best effort, but I was fried staring at the screen trying to wrap this episode up.  Happy New Year my friends!

Please be original, and give us a 5 star rating on iTunes.

My apologies, this episode had been delayed.   Holidays and other life crap.  But finally it's the episode you've all been waiting for!  The next one!

Here are some of the topics:

Hooters and Jiggers, Alien Pyramids, Lunar Gas Stations, Darth Maul Clones, Marvel Comics, Sarah Silverman, Joe Franklin, Lucy Liu, Mrs. Brady, Florence Henderson, Wesonality, Fidel Castro, Ron Glass, Barney Miller, Firefly, Serenity, our infamous quizzes, and Abe Vigoda gets a quick mention.  #abevigodalives 

Okay, also, the sci-fi world was recently rocked by the death of Carrie Fisher, and what kind of episode do we put out?  RIP Mrs. Brady!  D'oh.  Sorry about that.  Chuck and I will do a Carrie Fisher episode soon.  She and her mother Debbie Reynolds were both forces to be reckoned with.  We hope they are both together on their journey to the next step.

Hope the song at the end of this episode will cheer you up. 

Thanks for listening!  Please give us a rating on iTunes!

Episode 13 - We give our potato ratings to "Doctor Strange"  Is Benedict Cumberbatch dreamy?  Learn how to say Chiwetel Ejiofor! 

A clip I couldn't find that would have made this episode funnier (to me): The whole Spaceballs scene that ends with, "Funny she doesn't look Druish."  Let me know if you can figure out where I wanted to put that clip.  Win a prize!

This is another episode where we put in our potatoes!  

We come up with a new phrase that is sure to sweep the nation:  "You're a star jewel in our bag of crap."

I had extra space at the end of the episode, so I just stuck stuff at the end.  Plus when I finished editing I was pretty fried.  But, that's normal. 

ENJOY FRIENDS!  Please follow us in Facebook.

Episode 12 - "Mr. Brooklyn"  Subtitled: "The One Where We Don't Review Doctor Strange"

This episode was supposed to showcase our Doctor Strange review, but we have a 30 minute curfew.  Chuck and I had too much fun with other topics, I just couldn't edit them out.  It's a pretty silly episode, that had me in tears.  Often I say "I just want to do a show that makes ME laugh."  Well, this is it.  

Please enjoy the original song at the end of the episode.

Episode 11 is here!  Without someone to interview, Chuck and I revert to straight up geeks.  We talk about animated movie "Batman: Return of The Caped Crusaders" -  Is it too dark?  Or is Chuck just a good dad?  We also discussed Netflix' Luke Cage.  Is Luke Cage too dark?  Well, I don't see color.

Also, I had a head cold, so I sound a bit subdued.  Promise to bounce back BIGLY for the next episode.

Topics discussed:  Bobby Flay, Biff Yeager, The Greatest Generation Podcast, OMNI Magazine, Netflix Luke Cage, Planet 9, The Moon, Nemesis, European Space Agency Mars lander, Head Colds, Batman and Robin, Batgirl good, Batgirl bad, Doctor Strange, Harry Mudd, shing!, ummm... other stuff!  Enjoy!

"The Black Suit of Death" - is an indie comic that deserves your attention. 

This episode Chuck and Steve have a great time laughing and interviewing with Warrior Innkeeper Creative's: Benjamin Kreger, co-creator and writer of a very cool new indie comic book called "The Black Suit of Death", BSD for short.  The BSD was envisioned 20 years ago (by Ben and his friend Ed Ellsworth), and it's finally ready for it's (color) close-up.  Recently Ben and Ed completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund finalizing BSD#1.  They jam packed their book with fun background "easter eggs" and cool extras (including Fred Hembeck's "Li'l BSD" comic strip page!). Ben Kreger and Ed Ellsworth write this title together; it has humor, depth, and relatable characters.  Did I mention the art?  Amazing pencils and color work by Dexter Wee.  The guy's a pro.

About Ben: He's a happily married guy, a dad (teaching the lessons of Star Wars and Star Trek to his kids), a proud veteran, and... he's a geek (or is it nerd?).  He followed his dream to succeed in the comic industry, and BSD is an achievement long in the making.   

About the actual Black Suit: It's an extraterrestrial biomechanical killing machine (that you wear), and it is probably the very article which originated our myth of The Grim Reaper.  It reveals itself to a distraught college student named Edd Grimes. Oh, and it comes with a requisite kick-ass scythe.  Will Edd use the BSD for good or something darker?  Can Edd rely on his friends to temper darker inclinations?  Will Mr. Lutz meet an untimely end?  And how does Jar-Jar Binks tie into all this?  Get behind this indie comic to find out.  Go find his page on Kickstarter, go visit his webpage (below), or at least "like" Black Suit of Death on Facebook until you're hooked.  Then tell your local comic shop owner. 

To converse with Ben and Ed On Twitter:

Find Dexter Wee on Instagram.  I did.

Did you read what I wrote?  These guys got Fred Hembeck to do original artwork for their book!  Visit because Fred Hembeck is awesome.  Always has been.

Believe it or not, I think you will enjoy this interview.  Thank you for supporting Geek Life Crisis.

Geek Life Crisis, episode 4.  We're talking Bruce Banner today.  Why?  Because we're geeks that watched too much TV growing up.  That, and, Marvel killed off the one and only Bruce Banner in their top-selling comic series Civil War II.  So we talk about the Bruce Banners we've known over the years from TV and movies.

Chuck has fashion surprise for the show.

Birthdays!  Here's who had them:  Vin Diesel, Daniel Radcliffe, Benedict Cumberbatch, and "friend of the show" Donnie Yen.

We read a couple of our iTunes reviews!  Go review us on iTunes and we'll read yours!

Oh, and, the late great Garry Marshall gets the Spock Torpedo treatment.  RIP Garry.


They said it couldn't be done.  What exactly?  Well, we have our first true commercial.  Thank you Play4Autism for partnering with our show.  Enjoy the promo as it is awkwardly shoe-horned into the podcast, because Chuck and I are still newbies at all this.


The Urban Dictionary defines "milksop" as an unmanly man.  Here's their example:  "Mr. Engasser is a milksop."  That sucks for Mr. Engasser.

Mr Magee, don't make me angry.  You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
