99 episodes ago, the GeekScholars Movie News podcast began.
Now, with their 100th show, the crew sit down for a in-depth discussion regarding how the podcast started, their favorite moments, motivations, off-microphone antics, how the episodes have evolved, and the future of GeekScholars Movie News.
