This week, we head into the wild, join a cult, and have a few laughs.
Don’t miss this Friday’s episode of Geek Hard as Andrew and Mr. Green bring you another episode jam-packed with awesome. Joining the guys by phone are Evany Rosen and Kayla Lorette. Evany and Kayla are the creators and stars of New Eden, the true crime mockumentary series about a women’s cult. The series is now streaming on Crave. They will be on to talk about the making of the series and MORE! Here’s a quick synopsis of the show:
Spanning the 1970s, 80s and 90s, New Eden tracks the beginning and end of a feminist utopia based out of small-town B.C. Though Katherine Wryfield (Lorette) and Grace Lee (Rosen) have good intentions for the group of ladies they assemble, the community quickly devolves into drug-addled, alien-goddess worshipping chaos and murder. The show includes documentary-style interviews circa 1991, found footage from the 1970s, news reports, Court TV, and even a Forensic Files style episode.
Be sure to check out New Eden on Crave and don’t miss our interview with Evany and Kayla this Friday.
Also joining us by phone this Friday is a long time friend of the show, comedian Gavin Stephens. Gavin has guested on Geek Hard many times over the past decade. He was the original co-host of our comic book centric podcast, Back Issue Bloodbath. These days, Gavin hosts The Uncolonized Podcast with fellow comic B. Black. The show gives a funny and blunt take on race, politics, and pop culture from a Canadian perspective. Gavin will be on to talk about it and more this Friday! Here’s a quick bio on Gavin:
Gavin Stephens is a stand-up comedian known for his (really) quick wit and stream of consciousness comedic style. He has been featured in Montreal & Toronto’s Just For Laughs Festivals, as well as the Cape Town Comedy fest, and Austin’s SXSW. Gavin appeared on CTV and the Comedy Network in The Buzz, Comedy Inc., and on CBC’s Debaters and The Baroness Von Sketch Show. When he’s not performing or hosting the Uncolonized podcast, he can be found practicing his knitting or cheering on the Raptors. His perfect day includes watching cartoons, reading comic books and watching indie wrestling.
Listen this Friday to hear our chat with Gavin Stephens!

Will it be a sentimental remake that celebrates the awesomeness of nature? Will we be able to stay awake for all of it? Find out this Friday as Andrew and Mr. Green give their honest opinions.
