The SciFi Geeks Club #74 – Andy Weir


On this episode of The SciFi Geeks Club we welcome author Andy Weir back to the podcast. The movie version of his book The Martian, starring Matt Damon and directed by Ridley Scott just came out, so we asked him questions about the novel, the film, possible sequels, his next book, water on Mars, Doctor Who and more.

Host panel included Dave Nelson, Brad Ludwig, Anessa Mooyeens and Matt Stein.

Also joining us was our Patreon Campaign winner, Elysia Brenner an American-born, Amsterdam-based freelance food, tourism, and tech writer and amateur sci-fi writer.

Originally from Minnesota in the United States, Dave has lived all over.  He currently makes his home in Ottawa, Ontario Canada where he lives with his wife and stepdaughter.  Dave works as an on-air announcer at Boom 99-7 (CJOT.) One of his first sci-fi memories was that of watching Star Trek the original series in reruns on Sunday mornings so, as you can imagine, that made quite the impression and was one of the inspirations for founding the Galactic Netcasts network in 2011. You can hear Dave on The Alien Invasion, The SciFi Geeks Club and Weird World Weekly podcasts. Follow him on Twitter @davenelsonvoice
