We’re pleased to announce the release of episode 3 which wraps up the investigation into the flying car.  The lab staff investigates The Transition, the world’s first street legal aircraft, while Mr. Creature is interrupted by his own mental transitions.

To celebrate the release of the episode we are holding a contest.

You may have noticed quite a few pop and geek culture quotes in our podcasts.  Well, now you have a chance to put your observational powers to good use!  Identify as many of the quotes that we use from geek culture as you can.  Include your name, email address, and the total number of quotes you found as well as the quotes themselves (so we can check your work).  IMPORTANT: you need list only quotes from the scripted portions of the show.  Any quotes contained within either the interview with Terrafugia or the wrap up of the discussion of the flying car will NOT be counted.   When submitting, write out the quote (or enough of it to make it clear what you’re referencing) and what movie/television show/book it came from.

One point will be awarded for each valid quote.  The person who has the greatest number of points will win a Dr. Geek’s Lab coffee mug AND a $10 Amazon gift card.  In the event of a tie we will have a drawing to determine the winner.  The winner will also be entered into an end-of-season contest where they will have an opportunity to compete for an awesome grand prize.  The deadline for entry is Sunday, December 23rd.  Good luck everyone!

Traci O. is the winner of our first Reference Library contest.  She wins a Dr. Geek’s Lab logo mug and a $10 Amazon gift card. 

There will be another contest when episode 3 comes out.  Check back later for more information!
