Remember way back 10 episodes ago in Episode 58 “Hopes and Fears of Episode VII” we brought up how you never saw the planet of Endor in Return of the Jedi, and how we said we were going to continue to talk about that and possibly have it be a podcast?

Well, here is that conversation!

Troy and Neo continue talking about how the fact that you never see Endor could possibly be a cover up for a larger plan. An Endor Conspiracy, if you will…

What it the Empire? Was it the Rebel Alliance? No one knows who and why…

We provide the clues, you decide!

Tonight on the podcast, we get serious for a moment and we talk about a subject that most are uncomfortable about…

Mental illness.

Tyler Grant joins us back on the podcast to talk about this touchy subject. He talks about his experiences with mental illness and his road to getting properly diagnosed and in the correct medication. Troy, our own Boss Monkey even talks about his experiences of just starting to seek treatment for his diagnosis and how hard it is starting on a new medication.

If you need to speak to someone, please do so. Even if it is just to talk about what is making you frustrated at that moment, please go to someone you can trust. If you find yourself thinking about self harm or suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255

If you wish, feel free to email us at info@uncommongeek.com One of our Monkeys would be happy to help :)

Their is no shame in telling someone that you need help. It’s probably the strongest thing you can do.

Tonight concludes our Back to the Future geekout.

It was an awesome day! Getting a chance to be part of one of our favorite geek movies, and it was a celebration that will happen only once in our lives!

The recording session will probably be one of my all time favorites! It was fun and with awesome people, and thank you for being a part of it, dear listener!

Video games are awesome! And when we get a chance to talk with people who make games, we get to learn more about what we enjoy! Which is always a good thing.

This week, we sit down with Rob Buchheit of Nectar Game Studios to talk about a game they are working on called “Project Resurgence.” It’s like Balders Gate and Diablo with elements of tabletop RPG mixed in!

Rob lays it all out on the table and talks about what goes into making a game and talks about his history with video games and the inspiration behind Project Resurgence! We also geek out a lot and get off topic, just like always :)

Check out Nectar Game Studios at http://www.nectargamestudios.com/

Happy Back to the Future Day!

October 21st, 2015 is finally here! We made it to the future, my fellow geeks!

This episode is (almost) all about Back to the Future! Troy, returning guest Dustin Pence, and special guest star Roger Baker gather at Uncommon HQ to geek out about BTTF! And, per Uncommon Geek tradition, we get massively sidetracked!

We will be splitting this geekout into three episodes, because it was 3 hours long, and there are 3 Back to the Future movies (see what we did there?!?!)! And, just a warning, Episode 64 WILL NOT be the direct sequel to this episode. Time sensitive promo stuff going on ;)

Crack open a $50 bottle of Pepsi Perfect, kick up your power lace Nike’s onto your hover board and enjoy below!

Assassins Creed has become one of the most popular game titles of all time, and people enjoy geeking out about it.

So, why would we be any different?

Troy, Neo and Matt sit down in a garage and talk about their thoughts, opinions and theories surrounding Assassins Creed! They get pretty deep into metaphysics and theory, far too much for just one episode. So look out for more Assassins Creed episodes in teh future!

Listen below and enjoy!
