The GeekCast Radio Network was created in June of 2009 by two podcasters and friends. Steven C. Phillips and Michael Blanchard created the network as well as a majority of the various shows showcased within the network to converse about pop culture and entertainment. We’ve always been by the fans, for the fans.
It all began with the formation of All Things Transformers by Steve in August of 2008. Several months later after several episodes, Mike joined in as his now permanent co-host, who went on to create The TFG1 Podcast. Within a few months, many other show ideas floated about. Both hosts decided to develop those ideas into actual podcasts, and in doing so they created the site you see before you today.
In 2010, the GCRN expanded exponentially with the likes of ToonCast, MWIRE, ToyCast, GeekCast Radio, and the Tele-Cast joining the programming lineup. GCRN was also the very first and only podcasting network to this date to tackle Beast Wars and Beast Machines from beginning to end with The Beast Unleashed Podcast (Although there have been roughly 3 since released by 2018). We also have added a variety of ‘Specialty’ shows that focus in on one particular topic or television series such as, Legends of the Dark Knight, Future Imperfect, Powers of Grayskull, and many others.
During our expansion we welcomed some new personalities to the network. PecanCtMichael had become a fixture in all of the various Transformers review podcasts, while OptimusSolo not only joined Mike for the ToonCast journey but went on to launch several podcasts such as, The TeleCast, and Cinema Geeks. You can also hear Optimus in a variety of other shows broadcast on this network.
In 2011, we took on the biggest project in the Network’s history. In collaboration with numerous other geek sites we became the very 1st Network to tackle the Top 100 Animated Series of All Time (Now Top 100 Countdown) (and in the process did a 1000% better version than the blasphemous IGN list did)!
In 2013, we launched a plethora of new programming from Altered Geek, Cinema Geeks, The Pull Bag, and more!
2018 was a slow but still monumental year for us with new additions such as Geek Responsibly, a new GCRN WarZ Tournament, podcasting records shattered with our June episode of GeekCast Radio telling shows that broke 300 episodes and hosts that are in the 4 digit realm for hosting podcasts on the network.
With the evolution and many designs, many hosts later, we have reached the point of our 10 Year Anniversary in 2019! This year we have much planned between a brand new website, brand new interviews, brand new programming, more host variations, video content, membership services, and more ways to join in the fun. The network will also continue to invite new hosts, show ideas, and collaborations from every corner of the Geek World! So stay tuned because we have a great deal more in store for you, the fans and listeners of GeekCast Radio Network!
