It’s Geek Week on YouTube! And even though we’re not popular enough to be officially highlighted, we’re going to ride the hashtag coattails. Next week, Sally will be back for Episode 8, but this week Chrissy stepped up to the plate. Chrissy Friedlander is a writer, teacher, advocate and all around great person. Most notably (for the purposes of this episode), she is a New Jersey native who is returning there after three years in Minneapolis. We’ll miss her, but wish her the best of luck and are very happy that she agreed to fill the guest host seat this week:
Dark Ride – A dark ride is any enclosed amusement park type ride, typified by the Tunnel of Love. Props to Danika Stegeman, who read poems from her manuscript entitled Dark Ride, inspiring Kristin to look this up.
Books by dictators – While there is no official entry with this title, Kristin had heard that lots of dictators wrote books from the aforementioned poetry reading, where writer Mark Ehling brought this to everyone’s attention in an essay.
Carlos Danger – If you’ve been living under a rock, this is the alias that Anthony Weiner used when sexting.
Stay tuned for a ridiculous amount of outtakes this week.
