Geek of all Trades: Cheshire Cat Studios

The Drakkarium's Merlot Williams had the privilege of sitting down and talking with some of the folks from Cheshire Cat Studios.  For a quick idea of who Cheshire Cat Studios is, if you haven't heard their name before, here is a quote directly from their website's About us section:

Cheshire Cat Studios has had a turbulent history. Originating as LaughingMan’s online presence for his own personal work and some of his early reviews, the site has since grown into an online community of like-minded cynics with a common vested interest in the entertainment industry and internet subcultures.


Today we have CCS's own The Fuboo, CineMax, and LaughingMan, all sitting down with Merlot, for an extremely fun interview.  We absolutely love getting to sit down and talk with fellow geeks, and we are very thankful to have them on the show.  You will also see this cast on their YouTube channel at some point as well.
