Oh, and of course, he gets you #HookedOnAFeeling again.

The Geek Speak Show returns from a short break!

Although it's now October, this episode is surprisingly not as spooky as Henry usually gets in October. He starts off the episode with a conversation with RJ Lackie, creator & writer of Inhuman Condition on KindaTV. It's a supernatural web series told from a psychiatrist's point of view.

Somnus is a sci-fi thriller released this week from director Chris Reading. Chris checks in with Henry and they talk about how Somnus was inspired by 1970's sci-fi films like Silent Running.

Finally, Brian L. Tan joins Henry to talk about his experiences on X-Men: First Class, the unique way he was hired for Tron:Legacy and how timely his new short film, BOOT is to what's happening with police and the public's view of them.

The episode wraps up with Henry's quick thoughts on Marvel's Luke Cage, The Strain renewed for a fourth and final season, and the season so far for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

With October right around the corner, The Geek Speak Show Rewinds start to get spooky!

First, parapsychologist, television and radio host, author, and professional chocolatier Loyd Auerbach was on the 2013 Halloween episode and is up first on this week's Rewind. Loyd talks about how he got into the paranormal, why today's "ghost hunter" shows don't do it right, and being a professional chocolatier. Jedi Knight Rac and Angel Nevarez (then-producer of The Geek Speak Show) join in on this interview. To wrap up this scary Rewind, Angel Nevarez and Henry San Miguel talk to Brannon Smith, Trap Inventor for The Tennessee Wraith Chasers, on the week before Ghost Asylum premiered on Destination America. This is from a 2015 interview.

The Geek Speak Show is on a break for the rest of September. New episodes return in October.
