BEST LOCAL PODCAST Phoenix 2007 - Geek Method

The truth about podcasts is that most of them suck. Modern technology made it possible for any jerk off the street to broadcast himself, but most people just don't belong behind a microphone.

Luckily, we discovered Geek Method, a good answer to a slow workday. The pair of dudes behind the show are a couple of self-proclaimed computer nerds. Their motto: "We geek out so you don't have to." But they've been programmed with a set of social skills as well and, even better, a sense of humor.

The show follows a pretty basic, but successful, formula. At the top of the hour-long broadcast, they answer listener mail and dole out advice in the vein of Dan Savage (sample question: "How many guys can a girl sleep with before she's icky?") The show segues into the hosts — Michael and Ryan "CPO" doing what they do best — making fun of shit and getting geeky. Topics range from how to escape from handcuffs to video games to current headlines. You really just can't go wrong with a show that has episodes named "I Bet the Easter Bunny Likes Grand Theft Auto" and "The Earth Is Melting, So I Told My Alarm Clock to Snooze." A new episode is posted every Wednesday.
