Help us, Beloved Listeners – you’re our only hope!


While the podcast is on a short summer break, I’d like to hear any suggestions you guys might have for future dating/relationship show topics. There may end up being some small adjustments to the show layout in the episodes to come, and I’d love to give you, our valued listener, exactly what you want. Any dating questions we can answer for you on the show? Any relationship topics/situations you’d like to have our opinion on? Let us know in the comments or email us at Thanks!

Mating Habits is Having a Birthday!

The show turns 3 years old today! Three years ago, I rented a room at a Durham, NC LaQuinta hotel and recorded the first four episodes of Mating Habits of the Modern Geek Podcast. Nowadays, the show has a mobile studio (when we’re not recording over Skype) and with 70 episodes soon to be under our belt we’re still going strong.

Over the years, this show has given me the opportunity to meet and work with so many great people, from listeners who interact through social media, to fellow podcasters who have welcomed me into their support network, to shows that have come after us that we strive to support and participate with. It’s been a great ride, and I can’t wait to see where we’re headed next.

Episode 70 drops Monday, so come help us wish Mating Habits a very Happy Birthday – and thank you.

We’re 2 Years Old Today!

It was just a week over two years ago when I rented a room at the LaQuinta Inn in Durham and had 4 sets of amazing cohosts come in to record from 9am until 3am that next morning. By the end of the night I was exhausted, hungry, my voice was shot, and I was terrified that I would somehow lose the recorded data before I could figure out how to edit it and release it. On Monday, June 17, 2012 I uploaded Episode 1.

Here it is, two years later and I often edit episodes the day they air. At least I’m better at it now.

Thank you to all of our listeners, especially those who have been here since the beginning – it hasn’t always been easy, but it’s usually been lots of fun.

Happy 4th of July from Mating Habits!


So, don’t get too excited – I know that Cap is from Marvel and Wonder Woman, DC. I also know that Wonder Woman is from Themyscira and therefore, technically not American. But there has always ben something so patriotic to me about Wonder Woman (maybe it’s the costume) that I had to include this photo with the post.

Everyone have a safe time out there grilling meats and arguing over recent SCOTUS decisions. Food and fighting are a proud American Tradition!
