Greetings, Programs!

On today’s episode, we will be geeking out about Transformers! Those “Robots in Disguise” that we all remember from our childhood!

We bring on Devin and Dustin, two of the most highly educated people I know on the subject on things that are “More than meets the eye.” and we talk about the hsitory and the various adaptations that The Transformers have gone through over the years.


Greetings, Programs!

Today (or tonight depending on when you’re listening) on the podcast we have James Pitt of Dayton Artist Movement Productions in for our very first geekout episode since being R3C0NF1GUR3D!

We ask him”The Question”, ask him a little about himself, and then begin talking about and geeking out on science fiction, and ever so lightly brush on the idea of conspiracy theories!

Check out the Dayton Artist Movement Productions Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Dayton-Artist-Movement-Productions-500377143637457/ and give it a like! Let him know that you heard him on the podcast!




Greetings, Programs!

Over the weekend, the Mrs. and I went to see Ready Player One!

I am planning on doing a more in-depth review of it later on (after I re-read the book) but, I will give a brief review here…

It was OK.

It was maybe 4% of the book with about 2% of the pop culture references that are in the book, and they didn’t explain why the movie title was Ready Player One like they did in the book.

Holy frak… I’m now in the same boat as the LOTR fans…

Anyway, enjoy this Side Quest podcast, and let us know what you thought of the movie!


As you are well aware now… we are back!

Prof. Stephen William Hawking : Jan. 8, 1942 – March 14, 2018


I have three heroes in my life that I look up to.

Wil Wheaton taught me to never be ashamed to be my geeky self and to not be a dick.

And Prof. Stephen Hawking taught me that limitations are only what we make them to be, and to never let anything stop us from doing what we want to do.

This morning, I woke up to the news that one of my heroes, Prof. Stephen Hawking, passed away…
