The Dorking Out Show

The show for anyone who loves to dork out about the stories in pop culture that we love. That means TV and movies, books and podcasts, and any other kind of engaging storytelling we can find.

Every week noted TV critic and blogger Sonia Mansfield and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Christopher Allan Smith talk about movies, TV, books and more from both a fan and creator perspective.

Rundown: In this week’s episode, we talk about the return of one of our favorite TV shows, Fargo, which just kicked off its third season last week. We love to talk to people who works all kinds of different creative fields, so in our second segment, Smith interviews Nicholas Cravotta and Rebecca Bleau of Blue Matter Games. These award-winning board game designers were on a recent episode of ABC’s reality show “Toy Box.” Plus, Nicholas wrote the book, “The Space Between Doors.” 


Topic 1: Fargo season 3: Is it the best show on TV?

We talk about writer/creator Noah Hawley's third season, starring Ewan McGregor, Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and David Thewlis. Is this the best show on TV? Watch the first episode here:


Topic 2: Creativity in Games, Novels and Everything with Nicholas Cravotta and Rebecca Bleau

We talk about a wide range of creative ideas and concepts with Rebecca Bleau and Nicholas Cravotta, the minds behind Blue Matter Games. The discussion is wide-ranging and meandering in the best sense. They've designed and created games for the biggest names in the business, and well as carved out their own award-winning niches as artists, writers and reality show contestants. 

You can see their episode of ABC's The Toy Box here:
