Mike “The Hobbit” Bickett is the founder of the Geeks Under the Influence Network, and host the Geeks Under the Influence Podcast.
A rotating panel riffs on a different geeky topic each episode while discussing it’s merits, preforming scene readings, and pairing alcohol to the subject.

Our first episode dropped on 4/20/15 (about 3 1/2 years ago). I started Geeks Under the Influence as a means of finding a constructive and challenging hobby to help battle chronic depression.
I do stand-up, host trivia nights in Richmond, Va, Curate movie nights at a local brewery, write, go to live shows, and occasionally have a music project.
I record with a Zoom R16 Multi-track recorder with Shure SM58 mics. I’ve converted my dining room into the podcast studio
