Episode 40 – Pokémon Go / Entering Fandom

Infinity +1: Powered by Geekdom House.

That’s not moon, its a Pokéball—but this is Infinity +1! With the #SupporttheGeeks campaign in full swing, Jason, Allison and Kyle load up some Saved Files—including some daddy-daughter video games, touching speedrun moments, and a costly mistake watching a beloved series. This Question of the Week takes a bow to the phenomenon that is Pokémon Go.

Then in the second segment, are the barriers to entry of many of our favourite fandoms to high? The hosts discuss the topic brought up in Keep On Keeping On by Michael Boyce and the culture of defending our fandoms for fear of losing them.

The song in the break is Pokemon Champion Lance “Epic Rock” Cover by LittleVMills
