...because if it's something you enjoy, IDO too.

Dec 16, 2016

The expressions have become so commonplace, they have literally become memes: "go home, 2016, you're drunk" or "2016, you are fired". If you've listened to our podcast even once, you'll know that we put too much effort into promoting positivity and hope to simply dismiss an entire year of our finite lives with that sort of a perspective. There have been difficulties, to be sure, setbacks and losses. But we gather with our listeners and like-minded geeks and enthusiasts to celebrate our passions and interests, and with that goal in view, there are many, many things about the year 2016 that fan culture can enjoy and revel in.

Call it an 'advent calendar for the fandoms', if you will, as we identify 25 gifts bestowed upon to geeks through the year 2016 that we can all celebrate and feel good about. As 19th century banker, philanthropist and scientist John Lubbock famously said, "What we see depends mainly on what we look for."

Here at IDO, that's why we look for reasons to geek out and geek happy. So join us, as we draft a holiday list of two dozen gifts the geek community has unwrapped in 2016, with guests Neil (of The Starling Tribune) and John (of Mutter's Spiral).
