Before the major motion picture adaptation arrives in theaters next month, Mike, Mike, Kirby, Rebecca Perry, and Bethany Kesler review Ernest Cline’s love letter to the geekiest of the 1980’s. Plus, author Chris Vander Kaay has a conversation with a 21st century Geek Seat and Jeremy Long gives us a pre-Khan Report of the Huntsville Comic and Pop Culture Expo. All this, along with the usual Rants & Raves, Ashley’s Box Office Buzz, Angela’s Geek Girl’s Take, Michelle’s Iconic Rock Moments, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!
