It’s an epic crossover event this week for the We Be Geeks Podcast Collective!
This week, the Pop Insider team makes guest appearances across three of the Geeks’ flagship shows, including We Be Geeks, Mighty Marvel Geeks, and Wookiee Radio! One of the big topics this week is the state of toys and collectibles coming off of the month that should’ve brought us Toy Fair New York (TFNY). So put on your headphones and get ready to fuel your fandom with six new podcasts to stream and enjoy!
We Be Geeks 384: “MEGA Toy Talk with Maddie Michalik”
This week, the Dashing Duo is joined by Maddie Michalik, editor-in-chief of the Toy Book and senior editor of the Pop Insider and the Toy Insider!
At nearly two hours in length, this is one of the longest episodes of We Be Geeks EVER as Maddie and the Dashing Duo discusses the absence of TFNY and take a look ahead at some of the new toys and collectibles that will be hitting stores — and collector’s shelves — in the weeks and months ahead. Additionally, the crew takes a look at the growing market for virtual conventions and events from the likes of Funko and more.
Among the hottest of topics: Blasters. NERF, ZURU, Buzz Bee Toys, and Dart Zone all get some attention alongside the latest LaserX offerings from NSI International.
Put on your headphones and get ready to geek out!
Mighty Marvel Geeks Issue 328: “Wanda Toys with Madeleine Buckley”
Fall in, Field Agents! The Intrepid Trio has gathered in the Above-Ground, Underwater, Sub-Orbital Volcano Lair to serve up another hefty dose of Marvel news.
This week, the crew is joined by Madeleine Buckley, associate editor of the Pop Insider, the Toy Insider, and the Toy Book!
On the show, the gang discusses all the new Marvel toys and swag that will be hitting retail throughout 2021. Beyond the Marvel Must-Have Merch, Madeleine and the crew turn their attention to WandaVision to ponder important issues, such as the possibility that S.W.O.R.D. could replace S.H.I.E.L.D. in the MCU and if the two organizations may peacefully coexist.
Hit play, true believers, and crank it up!
Wookiee Radio 201: “Toydarian Futures With James Zahn”
This week, The Smugglers Three are joined by James Zahn, senior editor of the Pop Insider and the Toy Insider and newly minted deputy editor of the Toy Book.
On the show, the group discusses some of the latest Star Wars toys, games, and collectibles to look forward to in the months ahead. Additionally, the crew looks back on how 2020 changed the toy industry and some of the biggest surprises of the year, including the lack of live events and conventions. Please note that this was recorded just prior to the cancelation of SDCC.
May the Force be with You!
Geek Watch One Issue No. 279: “Cat and Mouse Geeks”
This week, the Geek Watch One crew plays a game of cat and mouse as they dig into the new Tom and Jerry movie on HBO Max.
From there the Geeks discuss the debut of Superman & Lois on the CW; the Spider-Man 3 title reveal; a Blue Beetle movie; G.I.Joe’s Lady Jaye getting a series at Amazon; and the divisional restructuring at Hasbro. Oh, you think that’s all? Well, you thought wrong, because there’s more!
Just press play!
Keepers Of The Fringe 177: “The Elements Are There, But Do They Know How To Swing For The Fences Without Hitting Themselves In The Head?”
This week, the Keepers are back with a MASSIVE episode that tops two hours in length!
That said, this one is packed with information and fun, including the latest details on Spider-Man: No Way Home; The Falcon and The Winter Soldier; a planned Superman reboot; a G.I. Joe series; a new Terminator series; and more!
Crank it up!
The New England Society Of Geeks 78: “The Monthly Comicscast For February”
This week, the Derrick and Cosmic Comic Guru Dario are joined by the World’s Greatest Sidekick Paul for a discussion about comics, and comic-related topics in the Monthly Comicscast.
The unique aspect? None of the hosts have any new comics to review, so instead, they delve into a lot of comic-adjacent entertainment, including Superman & Lois, WandaVision, and a planned Superman reboot from JJ Abrams.
And with a lack of new comics, the group does an Off the Shelf Review of DC Comics’ New 52 introduction of Justice League Dark.
Turn it up!
