How we picked the shortlists, and the Geektown Radio launch podcast.
Obviously we can’t have every show/movie etc… released this year on the list, so we had to cut it down from. This was done by getting together a panel of fellow geeks, and having them vote and make suggestions until the list was a more manageable size. I’m sure some of you will have opinions on our shortlists, so feel free to add your comments below on this page.
