TFG1Mike is a geek with many interests. He has been podcasting for over a decade, and sees no stopping point in sight. From Transformers, He-Man, Batman, Comics, movies, video games, cartoons, and so much more, Mike has a zeal for the things he loves, and he will bring the hammer down on the things that he has a disdain for. He's generally a postive person, but negativity can creep in there. Mike is all about the innuendos and innuendon'ts too. You'll hear him on many of The GCRN podcasts!


  1. Awesome episode! Another great debate in GCRN Wars! I know I may have to turn in my geek card but my knowledge of Star Trek is limited to a few Next Gen episodes and the JJ Abrams film so I was curious what my take would be listening to this. Overall both sides were represented well and I agree with your take on the different topics. Both franchises have their strengths as well as their faults all which were examined.
    Looking forward to more episodes and think a DC vs Marvel episode mention in the podcast would be amazing. You mention you were looking for other ideas so here are a few: Harry Potter franchise vs Lord of the Rings (with the Hobbit coming out this winter may make for a good episode), Bond franchise vs the Bourne Franchise, this may be random but Looney Tunes vs The Muppets. Two Iconic Kid franchises going toe to toe could be interesting. Maybe something like the 80’s pop culture vs the 90’s. Any ways whatever you guys decide I’m sure will be great. Looking forward to listening.

  2. The guys were WAY off on the raw power of trek weapons. The Enterprise phaser is just as powerful as the super laser on the death star.

      1.  WHAT!?!  There was a TNG episode where they had to use the ship’s phasers to drill into the core of a planet and they had to LOWER the power to do it.  The sun crushers are cute and all, but in Generations they had a single, puny missile that could cause a sun to explode.  Moreover, someone on the show said that blasters are more powerful than phasers.  EXCUSE ME?!?!  A blaster does a glorified bullet wound.  Data once used a phaser to destroy a miles long aqueduct with a single shot!  Not to mention, Kevas Fajo’s Varon T disrupter could disintegrate a person in a single shot.  This episode was highly entertaining, but I found the Star Trek knowledge a little lacking in some areas….

        1.  Thats what I get for reading things at 3am – sorry I thought you were comparing a personal phaser to the death star not the Enterprise Phaser my bad. Agreed there were only about three of us with strong ‘trek’ knowledge and mine is a tad bit old and ONLY of TNG since I really can’t get into any of the other series they have had but glad you were entertained either way.

  3. Was recently listening to this and at the 3 hour and about 6-7 minute mark Steve says…”but someday Lucas will sell everything to Disney and….”!!!
