Philadelphia’s Geek Scene


Guests: Eric Smith and Mikey Ilagan

Philadelphia has a thriving geek scene. Technology groups are growing, geeky events are booming, and “maker spaces” across the city collaborate on a variety of new projects. So what is the “geek scene” all about? In this hour of Radio Times, we hear from Philly geeks ERIC SMITH, co-found of Geekadelphia and the Philly Geek Awards, and MIKEY ILAGAN, editor in chief of Geekadelphia, on all things geek: the spaces, events, and communities that exist in the City of Brotherly Love. We’ll also hear from Smith about his new book The Geek’s Guide to Dating.
