Podcast 064 – So Long, And Thanks For All the Fish

Here it is, the Final Ginger and the Geek Podcast (until there is another one…who knows?). Guests include popular favorites, Tim “Tastes Like” Schmitt, Julie “Super” Powers, and Jake “Not Dave Grohl” Pechtel. Like always, Melik is around, because he is cool as ice (not unlike the film).

Main Segment: Live, from the Lansing Public Media Center (recorded 08.14.2012) Kat Cooper and Daniel J. Hogan (along with producer Melik) chat with their rogues gallery of guests about anything and everything. Jake has some details on the latest news at Potter Park Zoo (including the Big Zoo Party), Julie talks about upcoming Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council events.

Other topics of discussion include: reality TV, college riots, and Daniel getting rid of his bachelor pad couch.

The show ends with Kat and Daniel giving thanks to Lansing, and to the fans of the show, and plugging their future projects. Kat is moving her fashion blogging to gingeradorned.com, while Daniel will focus on drawing comics and writing humor on clattertron.com. Daniel is also part of the monthly Lost Highway B-movie Review Podcast (as Tiger Sixon), which is now available on iTunes.

Notes from the Geek

Thank you everyone! If folks want a more detailed manifesto about why the show and the blog came to an end, here you go.

Tl;dr version: It was just time to move on.

Who knows though, we could be back in the future. I have plenty of other things to keep me busy (another podcast, humor writing, drawing comics, finishing a novel, watching A-Team reruns).

We had a good run, and had fun along the way–and we at least tried.

We did something.
We created.
We shared.

I would rather have it go this way (not finding the success we hoped for) than never taking a chance, and be left wondering, “What if I tried to do a talk show? What if I tried narrow-casting with a focus on promoting all the fun stuff Lansing has to offer?”

I’ll take having to stop something, over never starting and being full of regret every time. Sixty-four shows is a hell of an accomplishment. That’s sixty-four more shows than the average person will ever do.

And that’s my advice: create, share, repeat. Take a chance, and for Batman’s sake, TRY.

Daniel (the Geek)
