Geek Music Episode 134: Karen Walker (My Wife!)
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to my geek-adjacent wife, Karen Walker, about her thoughts on geek music and this podcast. She actually requested to be on, and I’ve been wanting to have on fans of geek music, so this seemed like a good opportunity to do exactly that. The closest thing to planning that we did was that I gave her the questions in advance, something I don’t typically do. We didn’t discuss her answers, although obviously I had some kind of idea what most of them would be. But she did bring up some stuff that I wasn’t necessarily expecting, so it makes for an interesting discussion, I
Contest: Win Disney’s ZOMBIES on DVD!
Disney's ZOMBIES is a music- and dance-filled story set in the fictitious world of Seabrook, a cookie-cutter community brimming with perky conformity 50 years after a zombie apocalypse. Today, the zombies pose no threat, but are required to live in Zombietown, an isolated, rundown community infused with their unique creative spirit. When zombies are finally allowed to enroll in Seabrook High School, the charming, charismatic zombie Zed, who is determined to play football, meets freshman Addison who dreams of being a cheerleader -- the ultimate form of status in Seabrook. Addison takes a lot of flak for befriending Zed and his zombie friends, but comes to learn that zombies and cheerleaders aren't so different after all.

Contest: Win 12 Strong on Blu-ray and DVD!
12 Strong is set in the harrowing days following 9/11 when an elite U.S. Special Forces unit, led by their Captain, Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. soldiers sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission in response to the attacks. Leaving their families behind, the team is dropped into the remote, rugged landscape of northern Afghanistan, where they must convince General Rashid Dostum (Navid Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans—accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghan horse soldiers. Despite forming an uneasy bond and growing respect, the new allies face overwhelming odds: vastly outnumbered and outgunned by a ruthless enemy that does not take
