Listen to Last Night’s Gobbledygeek

Get it? 'Cuz...'cuz it's a character...

Last night’s Gobbledygeek, “The Top 10,” is available for listening right here. As you can tell by the totally un-subtle title, we discuss our top 10 characters in modern pop culture, the end of our first major undertaking. Luckily, the top 10 went off without a hitch, and I think the first half of the show is really strong. Unfortunately, immediately after I finished my #1 pick, Skype decided to be a motherfucker, so there’s about four minutes of silence where we got cut off, and we’re back for the rest of the show, but…well, yeah. The roughest tech problems we’ve ever had. I’m absent for a good deal of the bonus hour simply because I couldn’t understand what Paul and Kevin were saying. But hey, let’s focus on the positive here! Those first 90 minutes are beautiful!

Things you have to look forward to next week: no more of us prattling on about why we chose this character or that one; a brand new bonus hour format.

Gobbledygeek #23 Tonight!

So said the Wolf, "Just because you are a character doesn't mean that you have character." Also, he's totally not on either of our lists.

The twenty-third episode of Gobbledygeek airs live tonight at 10:30 PM EST right here. It’s sort of a momentous occasion for us, as we reach the conclusion of our first major undertaking, our countdown of the Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture. That’s right, tonight, Paul and I finally unveil our top tens in all of their glory. Which basically means, expect a lot of Joss Whedon.

In the bonus hour, we’ll list off some characters we really wish we could have included, and read a few listener e-mails/comments about their favorites. Speaking of, if you’ve got some favorite characters or some thoughts on our choices thus far, why don’t you leave a comment here, tweet at us, or send us an e-mail?

Reminder: Calling into the show is potentially a toll call, but if you’ve got a free Skype account and a free BlogTalkRadio account, you can use the free “Click to Talk” button to call in…for free!

Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture: #100-91

On Friday’s show, Paul and I began our countdown of the Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture. We’ve each got our own lists, and last night we revealed our respective #s 100-91. Be sure to listen to the show for our full run-down, but here are our picks with excerpts of what we said:


PAUL: The Companion Cube (Portal)

Your weighted Companion Cube is very faithful, never talks back, and will never stab you, but sadly, it doesn’t really get a happy ending. The Companion Cube’s story is, I’m afraid, a tragedy.

AJ: Charlie Pace (Lost)

Charlie started as a one-hit wonder rock star with a heroin addiction, but along with his good friend Hurley, he quickly became the heart of the show.

Last night’s Gobbledygeek, “Daft Gamers,” is available for listening right here. Along with guest host Nathan, Paul and I talk about some games we’re looking forward to from this year’s E3…well, to put it more accurately, Paul and Nathan talk about E3 and I mention like two games. In the bonus hour, Paul and I reveal our respective #s 100-91 from our Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture. I’ll be making a separate post about that later today, but be sure to listen to the show itself for our full rundown.
