Black Friday is that day you kiss all reason goodbye and drag your wallet out to load up on gifts, household items, and useless crap all in time for the holidays.

But why do we do this? Where the heck did Black Friday even come from? We delve into the biggest shopping day of the year (or the night beforehand now…what?) as we dive into Black Friday in this week’s show.

Here’s everything you need to know about our Black Friday edition of the podcast:

  • Where did Black Friday even come from?
  • Our own geeky Black Friday horror stories!
  • How is Black Friday different today than from when it began?
  • What about Cyber Monday?
  • Current Black Friday trends
  • Which way is Black Friday trending?
  • Will it be overtaken by Cyber Monday and other online shopping days/weeks/months?

We also took Black Friday to a new level for us this year, as Josh and Logan actually ventured out to a local mall for the Thanksgiving night/pre-Black Friday festivities, just to see what it’s all about. You won’t want to miss this experience with the Geeks, and it’ll be heading your way on Tuesday for our latest installment of Extra Geeky!
