Geologic Badass

For roughly a year I have been attempting to avoid everything George Hrab related. Why, you may ask? Well, before that you make ask who the hell George Hrab is. George Hrab is a rocker/podcaster. He is the singer and drummer for the Philadelphia Funk Authority and does the weekly Geologic podcast. I've been avoiding him because I already subscribe to too many podcasts. Between The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe, the Naked Scientists, Skeptoid, Declaring Independence, and the occasional Point of Inquiry or Coverville I'm listening to a minimum of 5 hours of podcasts per week. That may not seem like a lot but I'm a busy man with shit to do. I don't need someone else cutting into my time. And I knew that once I started listening to the Geologic podcast I wouldn't be able to stop.

So guess what happened last week... I finally gave in and listened to one of his shows. Already hooked. I knew from the SGU's interview of him from last year's TAM that he was a pretty funny guy who knew his skeptic stuff. I didn't realize that he was this much of a badass though. Always funny, sometimes poignant, great musician. I highly recommend the Geologic podcast to anyone. I would go back and listen to the entire series but, like I said, I don't have that much time in the first place.

For my Discordian friends, I suggest going to episode #65 (or skip to somewhere around the middle of #118.1) for the spoken word piece "Door Hinge". That piece alone should get him Discordian sainthood. I can't find the transcripts of it or a way to embed the thing here so either go find it or take my word for it.

Oh yeah, he also has a song called "Think for Yourself". If that doesn't make him a crypto-Discordian then nothing will.
