Dedicated to expanding the definition of geek culture through individual experience and irreverent commentary, Marginally Geek is a podcast for and about geeks, nerds, and fans that identify as minorities and marginalized identities. It is dedicated to amplifying their voices and commenting on the view from the divergent edges of the geekverse.
 
Richard Fletcher and Al Elliott are 2 middle aged men who've seen it all when it comes to online marketing. From old school banner ads in 1994, right up to the modern day 'fake webinars' (yes, we know you're not actually presenting to us live)...the result is a lot of things piss them off. This podcast is their place to vent, spleen and moan. They may occasionally offer nuggets of value, but those are entirely by accident.
 
These are the stories that make us nerds. Geek Edition presents dispatches from the geek community, reporting on stories from the crossroads of fandom, pop culture, science, and more. Stories like the collector who went from seeking lunch boxes to preserving pinball machines; an endeavor that led him to forming a Star Wars church. Or the tea blender with a unique form of synesthesia that allows her to taste pop culture, and how she uses it to craft a flavorful cup of tea. And the acting troo ...

Animal kidneys. Some people like them in pies, but pig kidneys go just as well as replacements for human kidneys. A new GMO pig can provide kidneys that are completely compatible with the human immune system. This could have a big impact on transplant waiting lists, and is also a new step in transhumanism. Half Man, Half Pig, He's Pig Man. Facebook…
 
You'll want to pack your umbrella for a trip to TOI-3362b, it rains molten aluminium there. We discuss alien weather, and the reason why we're very unlikely to ever take a holiday there.

Twitch got hacked. It's bad. Someone's learning a very important cybersecurity lesson right now. We now know a lot more about how they work on the inside, including payouts for top streamers and private chat messages. Let's hope nobody does anything malicious with this.

What is the measure of a man? Is it the number of totally awesome robot body parts he has? We hope so. Transhumanism has reached another stride with a biomechanical replacement for kidneys that could eliminate the need for dialysis and transplants. What else can we replace? How long until we can be uploaded into the internet and send Von Neumann pr…

Rusty is coming back to Doctor Who. No, not that one. It's Russell T Davies, back to regenerate the greatest show on TV with his old production team. It remains to be seen whether he can recapture the magic, but the BBC must be desperate. Gaming PCs are incredibly rare, and they're likely to get even rarer. This means people will pay a massive prem…
 
I know... every month some annoying marketing 'guru' comes out and tells us that something is dead (usually email, Facebook, Instagram, SEO), but today we have a frank discussion about which demographics still use FB and where you can see some incredible returns on FB ads.Richard Fletcher and Al Elliott による

A judgment has been handed down in the Apple Vs Epic lawsuit. Now Apple has to allow third party payment systems. This could be the foot in the door to breaking Apple's monopolistic tactics. Concrete made from Astronaut blood is a potential solution to building on Mars. Let's hope it never gets to the point of keeping people locked up and farming t…
 
Big Brother is finding ways into your home through your games. You'd be surprised just how much they can tell about you from the way you play. China has decided to take effeminate men off TV, along with a whole bunch of new criteria. This echoes the Tik Tok ban on ugly and fat people. China, you have some issues with representation. Maybe take a lo…

Audio glitches again. They're less obvious on speakers. Hopefully we've actually fixed it this time. The director of Wonder Woman 1984 has joined the crusade to stop movies being released on streaming. She thinks they look fake. It’s a good cause, but we’re not sure the world is ready for this. Junk food lowers your life expectancy. Fruit is good f…
 
In this episode, Al steps up and explains how to validate an idea... In other words, you can quickly and easily find out if an idea for a product or service is a good one before you even have a name for it.

Look, we get it. You're highly unlikely to rank on page 1 of Google for something like 'marketing' (or your preferred single keyword). However, that doesn't mean you can't rank for other terms. In this episode, Richard demonstrates his super-simple method for finding opportunities to rank on Google for search terms that will actually bring you busi…
 
The audio quality can be a little wonky this week. We've identified the issue and resolved it. Sorry about that. We’ve heard for years that gamers are violent. But what if gamers were more peaceful in game than the people around them in real life? A really interesting new study has identified that gamers behave differently in EVE Online depending o…

The UN has asked game developers to be more green. It would make a nice change from every brown military shooter of the early 2010s. Oh, wait. They want us to use less energy. The UKIE has written a Green paper on methods for developers to reduce their carbon footprint. SMS is an awful, insecure method for 2FA, but we still use it because anything …

We've got a very important issue to talk about this week. Apple wants to look at your private pictures. They've made such a big deal about privacy for years, so what's changed and why can't we trust them anymore? What have you done Tim Apple?

We're back, tell your friends. Let us know what you think of our new format. California isn't actually banning gaming PCs, despite what you might have heard. Yet again clickbait channels are using lies to drive clicks, which isn't really a surprise. But California IS requiring minimum power consumption for devices in idle state. So get back to gami…
