David DucorbierDavid Ducorbier


Host of the Week in Geek, Author, Pseudo-Celebrity, Gamer (Paper & Pencil), Live-Action Role-Player, Xbox Enthusiast, History Lover, and Father. A lifelong resident of New Orleans that has been involved in Southern Fandom since his first convention at the tender age of 15. Over the past 10 years his highly controversial alter-ego JOE BOB has MC’d over 50 Charitable Events at Conventions all along the Gulf Coast. He has also led panel discussions at several Conventions on Topics ranging from writing Steampunk stories to “How to Throw the Perfect Room Party”. David was also the Owner of the Bar “Spider’s Web” in New Orleans. During that time he gave refuge to LARPers in need of gaming space and threw theme parties of epic proportions. The Week in Geek is his brainchild. It is an attempt to provide Geeks, Nerds, Fan Groups, and Geeky Charitable Organizations, a platform in which they may promote events and recruit members. Other Radio Stations refused to take calls or ideas from people they deemed Nerds. Our Radio Show and Station are the only ones in the New Orleans Area that give our fellow Geeks a Voice. You can find his short story “Arms R.A.C.E.” in the book “New Orleans by Gaslight” available on Amazon.com
