What is GBGPodcast dot com?


GBGPodcast dot com is the main website and home of the podcast The Good, The Bad & The Geeky. While it is mostly for the podcast, since the updates on the website in mid-2011, the site has been more geared towards covering the full spectrum of geeky things with authors/contributors offering their thoughts on all things movie/tv/comic book/video game/gadgets/music/pop-culture-based. While it is mostly tv reviews, it is a slow process. If you’d like to donate your time and effort and join as a contributor, please e-mail us at goodbadgeeky@gmail.com!


What is a Podcast?


A podcast is a pre-recorded audio show. Actually, it’s a radio show but one that that you can listen to at your leisure. Just upload it into your mp3 playing device no matter where you are whether it be at your desk, in your car, or even while you are out taking a jog. We record the show and upload it.

What is the history of the podcast?


The No Name Show was the original incarnation of the podcast starting in 2005-2006, lasting 15 episodes. Originally Starring Nitro and DJ Meat, soon-after it became just Nick and their mutual friend Jimmy Dailey (also known as Jerome Wetzel in some areas of the interwebs) mostly talking movies and television shows and other geekdom. From the death of the No Name Show was birthed The Good The Bad & The Geeky.

The Good, The Bad & The Geeky (also known as GBG for short) originally started being co-created/co-hosted by Nick Nitro & Jimmy Dailey. Soon after, our friend Jon Bettin displayed a want to do the podcast. From there, Jon became a main part of the show, the third wheel in our moped, until Jimmy left the show in April of 2009. From there, Jon and Nick rocked the show until DJ Meat started to add his own unique brand to the show in late June of 2010.

In late 2011 a new podcast series/service entitled ‘The Good, The Bad & The Geeky Presents’ or ‘GBG Presents’ for short, was launched. To listen to those podcasts, please visit its temporary home online at http://gbgpresents.libsyn.com/. To subscribe via iTunes search keywords ‘good bad geeky presents’ or ‘gbgpresents’.


What is the schedule of the podcast?


We record the podcast every other week (usually unless something comes up) on Tuesday nights, ranging from 10:45PM EST – 11:00PM EST starting time. The podcast then is edited and is posted by the following Tuesday on iTunes and http://www.gbgpodcast.com.


What is format of the podcast?


The show has always been about the entertainment field of some sort, and has evolved into a hodgepodge of ‘day in the life’ stories from the hosts, the point where sometimes it doesn’t really even mention entertainment-based things. For a show entitled “The Good, The Bad & The Geeky” though, this has been misleading. But it has also given listeners a chance to fully flesh out our personalities to our listeners and as such the show has begun a re-birthing process; overall the year of 2011 has been a good one planting the seeds for further change. Starting in Episode 150 the show has become more entertainment based again, offering different segments, including a new segment about television especially called ‘Jerome Wetzel TV’, guest-hosts to discuss certain topics ranging from film, music, television, comic books, video games and much more.
