From February 5th on internet radio station, FUBAR Radio, there will see the debut broadcast of a new show, Spoiler Alert, with the spotlight firmly focused on geek culture in all its glory, with segments that will including comic book reviews, video game reviews and the promise of many guests from the world of entertainment.
It's initial run will only be over 6 weeks and will be broadcast live each Thursday between 2-4pm (GMT) and is presented by the tag-tem of Adam Johnson (producer at FUBAR) and Claire Lim (joint head honcho for A Badge of Friendship, a music PR company as well as blogger on all things geek for HuffPost and Metro), both of whom share a passion for comics, sci-fi, the lot.
While the guest list is still on lock down until nearer to broadcast, I have been told that T Pub's Neil Gibson (Twisted Dark) will be featured in the first show; one of British independent publishing's success stories and one of the busiest guys around. Always insightful, Gibson makes an excellent first guest. A promising start methinks.
So, tune in this Thursday and for the next five weeks after that. It's good to see a radio show produced by fans, for fans.
