Welcome to Geektown!  This is/will be a podcast where I answer questions from geeks and non-geeks alike about all sorts of geeky subjects.  There are some people out there who feel that there should be an "entry barrier" into fandom, and you have to prove you already know everything about a subject before you can call yourself a fan.  I say "No!"  If you like something, or want to learn more about something, you should never feel ashamed.  And that's why I created this: to give people a safe space to ask the questions they might otherwise feel ashamed or embarrassed to ask.  Is there terminology you don't understand?  History you want to know more about?  Please, ask away!  Questions can be placed here, on the comments page of a specific episode that they relate to, or emailed to welcometogeektown@gmail.com.
