The Geologic Podcast is a weekly podcast consisting of personal stories, comedy sketches, news commentary, music and movie reviews, science advocacy, original songs, and interviews. Its host and producer is musician, composer, drummer, comedian, storyteller, TEDx speaker, event emcee, and vigilant defender of the Theory of Gravity— George Hrab. The content often draws from Geo’s musical career; the music industry in general; his adventures as a semi-almost-famous critical thinker; his fascination with language, culture, and science; and ranges in tone from incredibly serious to unbearably silly.
The show’s name is a portmanteau of “George” and “Logic,” and—quite confusingly—the show contains no geology content whatsoever. Recurring characters on the show (all portrayed by Hrab) include Dr. Damian Handzy, Mortimer, Minoishe Interroberg, Rupert McClanahan and many others. The podcast content varies from week to week, but often features several of a number of recurring segments including Interesting Fauna, Ask George, Geo’s Mom Reads Jay-Z Lyrics, The History Chunk, Horror-Scopes, and The Weekly Standard. George looks at his show as a type of “brain sorbet” for those who may need the occasional respite from the “coarses” of life.
The podcast started in February 2007, and George has rarely missed posting one episode per week ever since. Just ask his therapist.

Hey George, I hope you enjoyed our little endeavor. I wanted it to be both funny and scary for you; were you creeped out?
If you were wondering how I know Dimitri Diachelko, when he was a kid his dad used to take him to see my show in Harvard Square. You should check out his guitar playing, he's world class!
This was quite a fun endeavor for me. I got to work with Liz, who is just a lovely person and I got to learn all sorts of new things. I never knew, for instance, that you didn't like hedgehogs. Who knew?!
Can't wait to hear your next tambourine solo! Toodles!
