February’s Featured Pod: All Us Geeks

Hi loyal readers and newcomers alike! Are you ready for a new blog segment? Well you’re getting one! What is it you might ask? Well to tell the truth it’s just a comeback to a fun post I used to do a while ago called Podcast of the Month!!!!

My goal for this segment is to recommend Podcasts to those who like to listen to them and to share my love with others plus I secretly like all the thank you(s) and pats on the back from others! I will try to get involvement from the show host(s) and other listeners if possible! I will contact each show via thegamehuntress email asking to describe their show and then ask what it means to them! Then I will also answer two questions, 1) How I found out about said show, and 2) What I love most about the show. I hope that you will all enjoy this returning segment it might get a bit long depending on the responses I get so just warning you now. Alright let’s get to know the first Podcast that was picked at random!

What The Show Means To Me/Why Do I Enjoy Creating It?

For starters, without All Us Geeks and the continued support we get for the show; I probably would not have created the United Geeks Network or started producing some of the other podcasts I produce within the UGN. ***United Geeks Network***

All Us Geeks itself is all about the community for me. Both Jordan & I love to interact with listeners. The fact that someone takes the time out of their day to say they listen, thank you for something, or just continue the conversation outside of the podcast means the world to just about any podcaster; and we’re no different in that regard.  I also really enjoy sitting down and talking to the wide range of game designers I interview on The Game of Crowd Funding segments. Many of those people are people who I still interact with on an almost daily basis. We’re pretty happy to be invited to play in their awesome sandbox.

All Us Geeks has also been a recorded journey of Jordan & I becoming friends. We didn’t really know each other that well when All Us Geeks first started. Now, we hang out whenever we can and we record some of it for other people to hear. We’ve always said that listening to All Us Geeks is pretty much like sitting at a gaming table with us. We have the same conversations, give each other the same amount of crap, and genuinely discuss whatever topics come to mind. The only parts the listeners are really missing are the “job vents” we do from time to time. ;-}

So that about covers it at a high level: Community, Interaction, & Friendship.

Jordan’s Response!

To me, the podcast is about community and friendship at AUG we try to help the Gaming community grow and stay positive. Gaming is a great social activity, no matter the genre you’re into and we want to foster a positive environment for everybody.

As for friendship, I can’t count the number of great people I’ve met in my 30+ years of gaming. People have become good friends simply because I met them at a store, a game day or a friend’s house and we could bond over a shared interest. I want to be able to see that kind of thing happen for others with the help of AUG and I like seeing my community of friends grow thanks to the podcast.

Listener Feedback:

The Meeple Mechanic (@meeplemechanic) on twitter said; I publicly announce is a damn fine production. I am constantly impressed with their emphasis on community!!

Mike from Royal Monster Battalion  **Fellow UGN Member**  said, All Us Geeks has inspired me to not only start playing more games again, but to become a contributing member of the geek community, something I never would have considered without them!

The Huntresses Response!

How I found out about All Us Geeks?

For a while I was a “Virtual Assistant” to Jason “The Angry Ginger” **Host/creator: Sevendaysageek and Podcasting 101** on his show Pod 101. I was in charge of scheduling interviews with the guests, and Jeff was one of my first interviews that I scheduled. Once the episode hit the airwaves I became intrigued to listen to the podcast myself and I am glad that I did! For a while I lost contact with Jeff/Jordan, they rarely showed up in my feed for some reason, until one day Jeff reached out to me over the twitter and ever since its been constant interaction! Now I am apart of the United Geeks Network which was formally known as Geekcast Network but had to do a name change. I still listen to the show although I believe I am behind a few episodes, all I really know is I am glad to count these two as Comrades!

What Do I love about the Show?

Short answer: Simply put, instant friendship!

A longer explanation: Being a gamer, who only dreams about playing Table Top Games because she has no one that would play with, All Us Geeks has given me an opportunity to learn about games that are or will be coming out, they are also great supporters of Kickstarter! I really just like the chemistry these two men have when they are on microphone, and their interactions on the show whether they are talking about gaming, tv shows etc. I sincerely hope that All US Geeks is around for a long time cause Jeff and Jordan have a good thing going! There’s something for everyone to enjoy! Thanks for being awesome guys!

Hope you enjoy and Happy Listening!! Go Get Your Pod On!
