The Assembly of Geeks Podcast Feed

The battle for Geek Supremacy starts this week!  Scott, Jeff and Regina compete for points as Darth Taxus asks them questions about JJ Abrams directing Star Wars Episode IX, the idea of a True Lies television series, pictures of the new Hellboy and more. Along the way, the geeks will put their own director into a Star Wars movie, change their body colors and try not to laugh at Darth Taxus's jokes.  This first episode has a little bit of everything, including a very close game!
