RevCast: from RevolutionSF.com
Science fiction news and commentary with insight and humor, plus some really terrific short stories.

This topic has been a hot one on the Interwebs recently: the tendancy for Geeks to shame others for not being Geeky enough.  But where does it come from?  Weren't Geeks the victims of this torture in High School?  So why would they stoop so low as to join the ranks of their tormentors?  These are questions that our co-hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel have been struggling with, so they invited Michael FalknerJessa Phillips, Shaun Rosado and Nerdiquette 101 founder, Laura Haywood-Cory to sit down and discuss the issue.  Why not listen and learn about the problem, and some amazing ways in which it is being addressed.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.
