BEYOND GEEK is a series that explores people who, on their own, are pushing the limits of science, technology, and everything geek. But this isn’t your ordinary science and technology show – it’s about people who take geek to a whole new level!
Each half-hour episode of BEYOND GEEK will delve into fringe ideas that might seem a little odd and sometimes quite a bit “out there.” From a group trying to get to space in a balloon to people who dress up as superheroes to fight crime, our hosts dive deep into these amazing stories by joining in the adventure, and taking you on a truly unique ride of how and why these people do what they do. By the end of the episode, you’ll learn just how cool those strange ideas are and understand why a word that used to be an insult is now the ultimate form of compliment.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
