What's this all about?
"Geek Culture" started out as a radio show that originally aired on WEHC 90.7FM on Mondays @ 1:30pm EST and was streamed live online at www.ehcweb.ehc.edu/masscomm/wehc/ .
This site was made by me (the host) to archive the show, and has been recently expanded to encompass things beyond what the show covered.
The radio show can be listened in it's entirety below, so check it out! :-)
