On the 302nd Episode of “Altered Geek,” Steve continues to experiment with the format of the show. We cover some recent crossovers with other podcasters including teasing the story format of a Halloween themed “GeekCast Radio Presents” episode where he’ll be in character reading Dr Suess books. Also he dives into the “GCRN WarZ: Wrestling Tournament”, Hot Topics of the Net, Superhero Depot and the Feature Presentation with MovieRevolt Dan where we discuss comics, the joy of them and how to restart. All this and more on Altered Geek!
