Geek Walk, Nerd Talk, Dalek - 290

Geek Walk, Nerd Talk, Dalek - 290

May 3, 2020

Geek walk, nerd talk, Dalek! It's another experimental episode of The Rusted Robot Podcast.

As of late, there hasn't been any new pop culture to talk about. That's a difficult situation for a current events pop culture podcast to find itself in. So what's a podcast host to do? Time to try some new and different things to keep the masses entertained! You're all in for a treat this week. I've taken the show on the road, so to speak. While delivering the mail this week, I plugged in my headset and recorded a walk and talk style episode. You will get to hear me for a portion of my day while I am working as a Canada Post delivery agent. So what did I talk about?

Dogs were the first thing on my find. Not to be a stereotype, but dogs hate mail carriers. Naturally I decided to talk a little bit about my experience with dogs.

And then I talked a tiny amount about the recent lack of pop culture. And how bored I have become. Which is unusual. So you will get to hear about The Midnight Gospel. This is a weird new show from Netflix that combines science fiction with existential philosophy. The Olympus Has Fallen film series is also discussed and briefly reviewed.

Then I talk about the world of podcasting. I mention podcasts I have been a part of. And I talk about my plans for the future of podcasts. And I ask you to support the show if you are able by going to

Collectible are mentioned. The Star Trek starships from EagleMoss Publishing are a main topic. You get to learn about my recent experiences with that company.

And finally, a robot profile. I have been saving a recording from our old friend Kiall. He sent me a profile about the Daleks from Doctor Who way back in 2014. I finally play his clip here on this show.
