The Black Tribbles, the team behind a podcast about geek culture, were the big winners at this year’s Philly Geek Awards. They won Streaming Project of the Year, and one of its members, Jason Richardson, won the coveted Geek of the Year award.

“This isn’t just for me,” Richardson said, to enormous cheers. “I’m a black geek, and this is a confusing thing for most of the media.”
