"If you use your comic book long boxes as furniture, you might be a geek..."
The twelfth episode features the exam for the Geek 101 course you've been taking all semester (see below), but it's not the season finale. I don't know when that will be, but I'm tending towards May 5th if I can get a group together to roleplay during the whole damn thing (with musical interludes, of course). If you couldn't listen or understand the French interventions, I supply the episode's playlist, with You-Tube links where available.

YOUR GEEK 101 EXAM!
Because not everyone had the chance to listen to every episode, I'm not going to ask you specific questions about each and every one. Geek Out was never about that. Instead, I'd like to hear, in a short essay you can leave in the comments section (you can sign in as Anonymous, but sign your name or handle at the bottom please), how YOU geeked out this semester, especially if you tried something based on one of the Geek 101 features or some other recommendation made on the show. Basically, how did the show's encouragement to geek out impact your life. What did you learn about geekery in the past 4 months? Extra points if you did follow the course, but if you didn't and still evolved your inner geek in 2012, I want to hear about it too. Grades and the winner of a special Mooltipass will be announced in next week's episode.
The show's on CKUM Radio every Saturday between 7 PM and 8:30 PM Atlantic Time (-4 GMT) on 93,5 FM in the Moncton area, or online, while capacity isn't exceeded, HERE.
