Welcome to the show notes for episode three. In this episode, you’ll get a glance at what Wil and Tyra do on a daily basis to get their geek on. We’re happy to announce that we are going to be appearing at Conjuration in a few weeks on several panels. So, keep reading for more information about our daily geeky, Wil’s experience at Games for Change, our Conjuration panels, as well as other local Atlanta and Chattanooga conventions. Let’s get our geek on!
Currently, on a daily basis Wil is playing Marvel Strike Force on his phone. Laura, Wil’s wife, is still playing Pokémon Go - as is Tyra and her husband.
Tyra is currently playing several games on her phone. Here are her current favorites.

Tyra is just off co-chairing a writers conference - she referred to it as an adventure in insanity.
