Geek and Sundry

In case you haven't seen this yet, there's a new youtube channel starting today called Geek and Sundry.  It's a combination of shows by people like Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog) and Wil Wheaton (Star Trek TNG).

Geek & Sundry offers a diverse lineup of shows that create a hub for fans of comedy, gaming, comics, music, and literature around the world.  Through compelling content and its powerful social media presence, the channel cultivates a thriving community amongst its viewers, allowing them to immerse themselves in nerd culture and connect with each other both online and off.

The shows in their line-up are:

The Flog: Hosted by Geek Goddess Felicia Day, The FLOG is a spirited, eccentric and quirky adventure through life.  Join Felicia each week as she explores new hobbies and experiences, curates links from across the web, and connects with her favorite people: her fans!
Sword & Laser: The popular podcast Sword & Laser can now been seen as well as heard on the YouTube screen! Hosts Veronica Belmont and Tom Merrit bring you the latest in tech, geek and entertainment news and engage in often irreverent, always dynamic discourse in this community-driven science fiction and fantasy-themed book club.

Learning Town: Nerd music duo Paul and Storm bring their harmonies and smartly offbeat humor to this new comedy musical. The learning curve is steep when the two are tasked with reviving the flagging educational show of their childhoods in the face of villainous hipsters, ghosts who give bad advice and flammable puppets.
