Ep.102 – Do Online-Only Interactions Sabotage the Dating Experience?

Get Episode 102 here!

Roger is back to talk about the New Year’s Eves of our past, his exciting adventures into the world of board game development, and we discuss why some people think it’s so damn cool to hate holidays.

We give a small fan review of The Last Jedi (spoilers abound), The Punisher, and we talk about our love for The Crown.

Also, the Black Mirror episode the USS Callister bothered me so much I couldn’t sleep!

Are online-only interactions killing the excitement and romance of a potential new
date? Do we give ourselves too much of an opportunity to mess things up because we don’t have to follow normal time constraints? Are we missing out on the other biological signals and cues because we’re not occupying the same physical space? Are we being too logical in the absence of the magic of attraction? I don’t know; do you? I’m genuinely asking.

Tables are flipped over too many promotional emails and filthy articles with such foul language!

Mating Habits of the Modern Geek is a comedy advice podcast for geeks, nerds, and the socially niche.

An entire bottle of Exotic Fruits Arbor Mist is poured into the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor on the back of the Delorean.

Two of my oldest and dearest friends, Roger and David Finehammer, actually travel back in time and discuss vintage haps: David finally reads The Odd Thomas series and mourns the loss of Tron 3, Roger reviews Edge of Tomorrow, and talk about my very first Dungeons and Dragons game, Dungeon Mastered by David himself.

Dating has changed a lot in the past 20 years with the destigmatization of online dating; apps like Tinder, Grindr, OKC; and the loss of actual phone conversations. We discuss the early stages of the internet and how folks connected and dated via snail-mailed photos back in the early days.

David shares stories of shame during road trips to the midwest to meet women who sent you photos of themselves in cheap lingerie swinging from a tree, and we are grateful to him for it.

Conference tables are flipped over the jerk who scared people at the Georgia Airport, Roger wants to know where his DC/Marvel fighting game is, and David can’t understand why the mainstream media is so obsessed with Caitlyn Jenner.

"Arbor Mist is shameful and delicious!"

Ep.42 – The Bro-isode: Chicks, Am I Right?

Hey dudes, quit storming the castle and come listen to this podcast.

Hey dudes, quit storming the castle and come listen to this podcast.

Welcome new co-host, Roger, to the MHMG Team where in this episode, I let the men run rampant with their thoughts and opinions (an answer to Ep.20 – Girls, Girls, Girls: The Geek Girl Experience). We tackle some of the more common problems that male geeks can face when interacting with people they’d like to give face kisses to.

We also waste a bunch of time discussing things like the future Justice League movie, Tokyo Jungle, and how wrong Roger is about Godzilla.

Individual table flips happen in five-minute bursts and an absent co-host will learn a valuable lesson about canceling on us and not showing up to the show 🙂

This is pretty much the uniform of anyone who co-hosts this show...I have requirements.
