This week on Words of Geekdom, we kick off our new, shorter format with a discussion about the concept of "fake geeks", particularly as often attributed to ladies. Do you ever feel like your geek cred is in question just because of who you are, or that you're somehow not geeky enough?
Plus, we wrap up NaNoWriMo, talk a bit about this year's Williams Sonoma 'No Kid Hungry' campaign, and Chris sings the TGIF theme song.
