Aaron’s Geek A Week Trading Card & Interview

Hail To The Chief. Aaron Douglas is Geek 47.

I often wonder as I write these Thursday announcements for Geek A Week, how many of you actually look forward to it. I mean, there is some excitement about knowing who comes up next. (I’m not deluding myself, am I?) But does anyone actually wait for me to post these announcements? I am thinking this, of course, as the project is rolling to a close. Just one more month of geeks and my year-long quest will have come to a close. I’ll save all the introspection and such for the end of the project. Right now, I have a geek to announce!

Next week is tailor-made for every Sci-Fi geek out there who has had a pulse for the past five years. As you know, the re-boot of Battlestar Galactica (or BSG for you hipster geeks out there) was a huge success and laid the groundwork for a new generation of serialized geeky TV shows. Next week, I am extremely proud and excited to bring one of the key figures from BSG to the Geek A Week deck – none other than The Chief himself, Aaron Douglas!

Aaron’s card and podcast will go live at some point during the weekend. And I gotta be honest with you: his card is so amazingly awesome, I can’t even stand it. Keep an eye out for the Chief as he graces us with his presence.
