Infinity +1 Update!

Dear listeners, You may have noticed Infinity +1 episodes haven’t been posted lately, and I apologize that we haven’t communicated about it sooner. With our podcast producer retiring from his stellar work as our host several months ago, Kyle Rudge and I managed to keep up with posting episodes for a short time but began to get overwhelmed because of our other duties at Geekdom House. But fear not! Infinity +1 will return this fall with a new host and a new format. We’re excited to keep the segments that you love and add some new things too! We just need some time to train up a new host and put together the show you deserve. Thank you for your love and support of Infinity +1. We’ve received messages from several of you about how valuable you find it and how much you love listening to it, and I always looked forward to your responses to the Question of the Week because hearing your thoughts means a lot! In the interim, there are some things you can do to help Geekdom House grow and Infinity +1 come back at ONE MILLION PERCENT: 1. Post on our Facebook page! Let us know how you’re doing, what you’re watching/reading/playing, or continue interacting with our posts. We love hearing from you. 2. Read Area of Effect articles! Keep visiting geekdomhouse.com for our latest discussions on sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and video games. 3. Sign up for our newsletters!
