Nerds are Funny

Comedy and stories from the people who stand up and come out as nerds

Nerds In Real Life

For eight years we've been making silly, weirdly specific stuff to entertain all of you. Let's commemorate that! We put some of our favorite material -- both sketches and songs -- from our history into a feature-length greatest hits-style album because, well, why not? Now these laughs are immortalized forever... or at least until an EMP wipes out the whole internet. But, y'know, might as well enjoy this record until then!

The Nerdologues' new podcast mentoring program got me thinking about my own process for piloting shows -- which inspired me to unearth the never-before-released pilot episode for Blank Cassette, featuring fellow Nerdologues member Katie sharing a really, ah, focused mix CD she was given in 2001. Hope you like Hanson.

A show recorded at the American Writers Museum should rightly have a lot of literary allusions and pontification on the American narrative. Hey, we got it covered!

Every once in a while, She-Ra reminds us how '80s it is. This week, as we look at how the show (and its brother program Masters of the Universe) treats physical beauty, we get a pretty messed up lesson.

Since the beginning of this show, Shadow Weaver has been Lauren and Eric's favorite character. This week, it's all about her and a bevy of issues she touches -- the intersection of science and religion, technology as a cure for impatience, lust for power, and of course Skeletor. Featuring special guest theology professor Jacob Torbeck!
