Welcome to the Healthy Geek Academy!    In this first episode we are introing you to your host, and fearless Gryffindor leader, Robyn Warren.   Robyn discusses her own start in both geek fandoms and in the health and wellness sphere, interviews Mischief Management COO Taekia Blackwell, and then closes the show by explaining how every episode's missions will be working and assigning the first one.   A note: This is addressed in episode 2, but this episode was recorded back in February, before COVID-19 really hit the US. As such you’ll hear references to things like “being together” and “going places.” It was a different time. ------------------------------   We have a Patreon!
