EP. 102 — Nerds

Nerds looking for sanctuary look no further than today’s Professor Blastoff! David apologizes for trash talking midwives and then the hosts talk about fear in a world where wild animals now rarely kill us. Then the high priestess of nerdom, Jackie Kashian, comes to the show. They break down the categorical differences between geeks, nerds, geeks, and dweebs. Then they reveal their own obsessive nerdy pursuits and decide if everyone’s a nerd in this modern world. Plus talk about Happy Days, iguanas, and trying to complete your super hero themed cups collection. It’s fun for everyone and who dare challenge the nerd authority of Jackie Kashian?
