The Week in Geek Radio Show

The Week in Geek is a radio talk show broadcasting in the Metro New Orleans area from News Talk 99.5 WRNO FM on Sundays at 7pm CST. Thanks to the power of the internet our show has been heard around the world via the Spreaker radio app. We cover all topics related to geekdom such as comic books, video games, movies, books, conventions, cosplay, and many more! We have been fortunate enough to bring our listeners interviews from actors in film, TV, and voice overs also authors, comic book artists, geek musicians, and fan groups. The hosts of The Week in Geek are David Ducorbier and Brian Held, Jr. both members of the Gulf Coast Sci-Fi/Fantasy Fandom Community for many years. Our video game pick of the week correspondent is Skungy Scontrino, our Facebook Admin is author Ernest Russell, and our Chief Librarian for book reviews is D L Held.... Show More
