'Geek Universe With Jim Yelton' Enters Syndication
September 3, 2015 at 4:15 PM (PT)
A MISSOURI-based podcast on nerd culture is entering radio syndication through GLN RADIO. A three-times-weekly radio show, "GEEK UNIVERSE WITH JIM YELTON," for WEDNESDAYS at 10a (ET), THURSDAYS at 2p, and SATURDAYS at 6p, is being spun off from the continuing "30 MINUTES OF GEEK" podcast.
“This is a cross-pollination of two dreams coming true,” said YELTON. “I’ve been looking for a way to combine my love of genre entertainment with my talk radio background. GEEK UNIVERSE is not just a couple of friends chatting in a garage or basement. We were determined to have the perfect blend of interesting guests and great conversations about anything and everything from STAR WARS to THE WALKING DEAD to Comic Book Superheroes. Plus, the show has my unique sense of humor such as having commercial spoofs with our sponsor Soylent Green (from the ‘70’s Charlton Heston sci-fi flick about a future company which makes food out of people) or running political ads against STAR WARS character Jar Jar Binks. It’s like having our own Comic Con on the radio for 60 minutes every week.”
