Meet Guest Host Chako

Chako

John Chakravarty (or Chako) is a part time corporate cog and an all the time winner. He writes, draws and occasionally stands in for Channing Tatum at autograph signings. Chako was introduced to Star Wars at an early age by his brothers. This introduction grew into an obsession that included comics, Sci-fi literature, table top RPGs and lots of video games. Chako spends his days sequestered in his apartment writing novels (that will soon become major motion pictures), attempting to put Bruce Banner in his fantasy football lineup, and spending time with his wonderful woman-friend and two dumb dogs.

You can hear Chako on Educating [Geeks] 16 – Ender’s Game.

John gets his geek on for:
  • Star Wars
  • Venture Bros
  • Comic books
  • Video games
  • Paleontology
He has two websites
