This is it. The last episode for 2016!

Henry, Gabby, and Miguel get ready for Rogue One by talking about Star Wars comics. Joseph F. Berenato and Rich Handley call in to talk about their new book, A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Exploring Star Wars Comics. The latest from Sequart Organization, the book looks at the early Star Wars comics from Marvel, the Dark Horse run, and back to Marvel, plus other Star Wars comic iterations.

Then, the crew listens to NON-SPOILER interviews with Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk & Riz Ahmed, and Ben Mendelsohn and Mads Mikkelsen.

For the year's final segment, the gang talks about The Walking Dead Winter Finale. Henry makes a big announcement concerning AMC's The Walking Dead, but it's not too shocking considering the direction this season has taken.

And that's it! The Geek Speak Show Season Finale will be available next week and then the show will be on break until February 1, 2017.

In the weeks between Thanksgiving and December 1st, Henry has noticed that there is always a wave of brand new listeners to The Geek Speak Show. While we have no idea why that is, we do appreciate and welcome you to the Geek Speak family of listeners. This special episode is especially for all of you new listeners. It's a look back at the past seven seasons of Geek Speak, starting from the very first time the world ever heard the show on August 9, 2010. You'll also hear The Book Club and how that led to the longest running joke on the show, how the Awards Show was born, the first time The Geek Speak Show covered the Super Bowl for Geeks (San Diego Comic Con), The Geek Speak Podcast Network, all the hosts that have been instrumental to the sound of The Geek Speak Show, and the episode closes off with Henry talking about what's coming up for the end of Season 7 and what's in store for 2017 and beyond....

The Geek Speak Show will return with all-new episodes on Wednesday December 7, 2016.

To finish off Geek Speak's Thanksgiving feast, the gang offers up a serving of Star Wars and Star Trek. First, director Bradley Weatherholt comes on to talk about his documentary, The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journey. It's a documentary about Bradley's quest to find out out once and for all: Are the Star Wars Prequels as bad as fans say they are or are they (and George Lucas) simply misunderstood?

2016 was Star Trek's 50th Anniversary, but unless you were a die-hard fan, you hardly noticed. Well, The Geek Speak Show did and on Star Trek TOS's actual 50th anniversary date (September 8th), Rod Roddenberry (Gene Roddenberry's son and CEO of Roddenberry Entertainment) joined Henry to talk about Star Trek 50 years after its launch, how he was introduced to Star Trek, why he thinks Star Trek has endured for 50 years, and what's coming to Star Trek: Discovery next year. (Rod is on the creative team for the new Star Trek series, in case you didn't know.)

To close off this year's Thanksgiving episode, Miguel, Gabby, and MTR talk about what they're thankful for on this holiday.

The Geek Speak Show is on break and will return for the last two episodes of 2016 on December 7th.

For the Thanksgiving Holiday, The Geek Speak Show plays back interviews with new creative friends we made earlier this year. First up is Annie McVey, director of Alistair1918. She talks about directing the time-travel short film, doing double-duty as actor and director, and trying to shoot on the busy streets of Los Angeles. Then, Clay Delauney and Andrea Snider called into the show back in March to talk about their short sci-fi film, Visible. Reuniting actors Henry Ian Cusick and Sonya Walger (Penny & Desmond from LOST), Visible is a powerful film with a timely message, particularly for those of us that describe ourselves as geeks. Rounding off the 'dinner" portion of the Thanksgiving episode is a chat with the director and choreographer of that awesome Darth Maul fan film that we know you all watched a few times, Darth Maul: Apprentice. Director Shaun Bu and choreographer Vi-Dan Tran talk about their love of Star Wars, Darth Maul, and action films.

Enjoy this full course of Geek Culture as your Thanksgiving "dinner", then listen to the "Dessert" episode afterwards. Or start with "Dessert", be a rebel. All rebellions start with hope... (See what we did there?)
