23: Rolling a Saving Throw – with Dom Zook

While Wil Wheaton’s TableTop series for Geek & Sundry has you covered for boardgames (and we talked about that very show with associate producer Boyan Radakovich two episodes back!), it’s time to turn our attention to RPGs. Dom Zook joins us to talk about the web-based series Saving Throw, and how they hope to become for roleplaying what TableTop is for boardgames! It’s a lively chat about the joy of playing games and playing a character other than yourself – time to roll your D20!

22: It’s Cool to Like Apes Again! – with Scott Collura

Do we really have to say it? You want us to say it, don’t you. OK…

The G2V Guys go APE this time around as they’re joined by Scott Collura of IGN.com and the Transporter Room 3 podcast! From the publication of Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel LA PLANETE DES SINGES (MONKEY PLANET) to five feature films, animated and live-action TV series, comics, toys, two reboots, and now the latest chapter in a new incarnation on its way this summer, the PLANET OF THE APES universe has never been more popular. G2V has a search through the Sacred Scrolls, bewares the Beast Man, and trudges through a desert of diverse observations to get to the most shattering secret of all (yes, more shocking than the Statue of Liberty!) – what makes us all fans of those damn, dirty APES?

The Creepy Hybrid Human-Ape Child Never Used in BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES

Revenge From Planet Ape! (this bizarre voiceover was appended by distributors to a cut US release of 1971’s TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD to try to convince moviegoers that the Spanish horror film was somehow connected to the APES franchise due to the tenuous visual design link between the Apes and the mummified Templar zombies in the film – trust us, the whole thing is nuts!)

ALL of the once rare 1981 Galen (Roddy McDowall) bumpers for the TV-movie repackagings of the 1974 television series (Note: Arnold refers to these in the episodes as being used for the original films, but that was incorrect, sorry!):

21: Tabletop Tales – with Boyan Radakovich

The G2V Guys welcome Boyan “Bo” Radakovich – associate producer of the hit Geek & Sundry web show, TableTop, starring Wil Wheaton and a rotating assortment of celebrity guests – to talk about the making of the series, the upcoming Second “International TableTop Day” taking place around the globe, and the shared passion for gaming that has turned the hobby into a mainstream pursuit now enjoyed by more people than ever before. Roll the dice, make your move, and listen as the Face of Bo tells all!

20: The Geek Aristocracy!

It’s a new year and a new “Galaxy” for The G2V Podcast as we kick off 2014 with a special episode that turns the spotlight on The G2V Guys themselves: Scott Alan Woodard and Arnold T. Blumberg!

“After six months of producing this podcast and building an audience that we really truly appreciate, we thought it was long past time to introduce ourselves in a substantial way. Who are these guys? Why should you listen to us? What have we done before this podcast began, and what led to the launch of this show? And most importantly for listeners, what amazing stuff do we have planned as we head into our first full year of G2V? This is where all the answers can be found…and there’s even a contest for a FREE prize too!”
