GeeklyInc (sometimes written Geekly Inc or Geekly, inc.) is a family of podcasts that focuses on topics such as tabletop gaming, literature, hit television shows, and video games.[1] GeeklyInc is perhaps most well-known for its Dungeons & Dragons podcast, "Drunks & Dragons," which won the award for best podcast in the "Games and Hobbies" category at the Academy of Podcasters Awards in 2017.[2] In addition to their podcasts, GeeklyInc also produces written articles that explore nerd and geek culture in more depth. Since 2014, GeeklyInc has hosted a yearly convention and fan meet-up that rotates between different cities including St. Louis, Chicago, and Columbus, Ohio. Though GeeklyInc has many producers, it is led primarily by co-founders Michael DiMauro and Tim Lanning.[3]
