Geekly Roundup: Time-Turned Edition

Geekly Roundup 36

This week’s Geekly Roundup has the perfect cast to talk about questionable casting decisions! Joe Hadsall, Luke Farr and Scott Woodbury talk about ESPN’s move to broadcast drone racing, the questions surrounding the moves to acquire rights for a live-action “Pokemon” and our wondering whether the makers of “Ghost in the Shell” have heard ANY of the recent conversation about whitewashing in movies. Also, who should play Motoko and Ash? We have the answers!

(Writer’s note: This podcast and article come to you from the deep, distant past — by which we mean, due to scheduling issues, this podcast was recorded a bit over a week ago.  Enjoy our discussion of these interesting and still-timely news topics, and check out the next Geekly Roundup episode this weekend!)

With a wide variety of interests ranging from baseball to theater and dance to technology to writing, Ben has given up on being good at any one thing and settled for being not half bad at a handful of things instead. He can usually be found cleaning up paperwork after a motley but wonderful crew of retail technicians; failing that, you can generally find him on the RP_OK Podcast at the Ace of Geeks, or on the San Francisco Giants-centric TortureCast. His Steam shame list is quickly growing legendary, and it's quite rare he's playing or watching anything made in the last five years.
