Creature Geek Is GO!

Today is a really big day for Frank and I because our new podcast CreatureGeek is live today!  Not only is it a real thing, but right out of the gate,  we have a a big brand name behind us:  As you may or may not know, is a website affiliated with Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman.  It is run by Norm Chan and Will Smith,  And it is awesome. And we couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Tested family.  Both Frank and I are honored to know that this crew believes in us enough to support us.  Thanks so much.

So here’s the deal:  Right now, CreatureGeek is a semi-regular podcast that will be be done in “seasons”.  Each season will be 8 regular episodes (although we may do a Bonus cast from time to time).  We’ll air every other Friday on Tested and here.  If people like the show, we’ll be back for Season 2. And so on and so on.

So please let us know how you like the show,  Leave comments here or at Tested  so Frank and I can adjust accordingly.  Frank and I have recorded almost the entire first season already just because of Frank’s crazy production schedule, so we may not be able to implement a lot of changes right from the start.  But believe me, we will be listening and taking notes.

That’s it.  Frank and I are happy to be doing this show and we hope you enjoy it!

CreatureGeek: Episode 1: Pilot

Welcome to the first episode of CreatureGeek!

It’s the first episode of CreatureGeek! This is the podcast about SFX and makeup from a fan and pro perspective.  On this episode, Frank and I find our footing, podcast-wise, and chat about our credentials, our first forays into makeup and special effects and more.  Frank also shares some stories about legendary makeup artist, Dick Smith. Listen in, enjoy and let us hear your feedback!

Also, a big thanks to for giving us a home and bringing us into their family of podcasts.

An Update

Frank and I are getting ready to record episodes of CreatureGeek very soon (as in this week) and we’d love to hear some feedback from you. Who would you love to hear as a guest on the show? What kind of topics would you like us to chat about? Any movies you’d like us to talk about? Let us know! Your feedback will help us develop future episodes.

We have some really exciting news to share with you, but we can’t share it just yet. But don’t fret! We’ll be able to let you in all the big doings in just a few days.  Until then, sound off in the comments and help us develop new episodes of Creature Geek!

Coming Soon…

In just a few short weeks, professional SFX makeup artist Frank Ippolito and I will launch our new podcast called “CreatureGeek“.  It’s a look at monster makeup from a fan and a pro perspective.  Our hope is to have compelling chat about the industry, have on great guests and a whole lot of nerdy talk about special effects and makeup.
