Geek Universe with Jim Yelton is a spinoff of our 30 Minutes of Geek podcast and is one of the few nationally syndicated radio talk shows in the Pop Culture/Genre Entertainment space. Becoming nationally syndicated has helped us reach a much bigger audience and we have plans to grow our listenership even more throughout 2018 with a series of live shows combining Geek Comedy, a Trivia Game Show, and special guests for performances at various conventions, comedy clubs, colleges, and other venues. Our affiliate lineup continues to grow and we recently welcomed new stations in San Bernadino, CA as well as St. Louis and Kansas City to the Geek Universe family.

My background as a radio talk show host and my love of genre entertainment melded into the show we have now. Each episode is highlighted by an in-depth interview with writers, producers, directors, journalists, super fans, and many others discussing what they love about Geek Culture.
