Week in Geek: Andrew plays Commander (aka Elder Dragon Highlander) with a custom 30 Rock deck while Dan plays Journey which was recently released for the Playstation 4.
Listener Gateways: Thanks to listener input, Dan and Andrew discuss the classic gateways to geekdom that are Star Wars and the Atari 2600.
Gateways to Geekdom: Thanks to a listener suggestion from an earlier episode, Andrew and Dan discuss the various gateways to geekdom have been as well as the impact those gateways had on geeks and nerd in general.
