You may have noticed quite a few pop and geek culture references in our podcasts. Well, now you have a chance to put your observational powers to good use! Identify as many of the references as you can and submit a list via the form below. Include your name, email address, and the total number of references you found as well as the references themselves (so we can check your work). IMPORTANT: you need list only references from the scripted portions of the show. Any references contained within either the interview with Dr. Moller or the Geek Culture segment will NOT be counted. When submitting, write out the quote (or enough of it to make it clear what you’re referencing) and what movie/television show/book it came from. For example:
“Elevators, Oracles, and Skycars, Oh My!” – homage to the Wizard of Oz
One point will be awarded for each reference that we consider valid. One bonus point may be obtained by liking us on our Facebook page which can be found by clicking here. Additional bonus points will also be given for each friend that you get to like our Facebook page up to a total of 5. Please indicate in your entry if you have liked our page and the names of those who have liked our page at your suggestion.
The person who has the greatest number of points will win a Dr. Geek’s Lab coffee mug AND a $10 Amazon gift card. In the event of a tie we will have a drawing to determine the winner. The winner will also be entered into an end-of-season contest where they will have an opportunity to compete for an awesome grand prize. The deadline for entry is Tuesday, November 20th. The winner will be announced on Thanksgiving. Good luck everyone!
I am proud to announce the 2nd episode of Doctor Geek’s Laboratory of Applied Geekdom. This is not a Halloween trick, just an October surprise. I am so proud of my staff. This is quite literally a quantum leap from our first episode.
So what is in this episode? In addition to our interview with Dr. Paul Moller, of Moller International, maker of the Skycar, this episode has everything! It has tests and challenges! Devices of such lethal cunning! Confused? Don’t worry it will make sense ….eventually. Don’t believe me? Check it out on here on the website or subscribe in iTunes under Dr. Geek’s Laboratory Podcast.

Welcome everyone, to my laboratory. It sure feels good to be able to say that!

The laboratory’s website is still under construction, but we wanted to make sure you got a sneak peek inside. Doctor’s Geek’s Laboratory of Applied Geekdom is a place for dreamers, builders, inventors, and those who support them.
The first question we should answer is: What is applied geekdom?
As discovered here in the lab, the phenomenon of Applied Geekdom is more than a passive interest in fiction. It’s the application of that passion to realize those concepts that inspire us, to fulfill their promise and potential. To bring them into reality. It’s science from fiction. How applied geekdom expresses itself, is all relative to the individual.
Let us know what applied geekdom means to you! Send your responses to email@example.com.
The second question we should answer is: What is the subject of the first investigation?
Our first investigation examines flying cars, of course! We will examine how flying cars have become integral to visions and interpretations of the future. Then we talk to the companies and designers who are working to bring the flying car to a garage near you, making the car of tomorrow a reality today. In fact, we’re just about finished with this investigation so you can expect us to start airing episodes of Doctor Geek’s Laboratory in the near future.
