Every month, the Nerdologues invite our friends and Nerds from the community to come and share their stories. Some people do stand-up, perform sketches, or sing songs; a lot of people tell their tales. Then we put it up on a podcast. 

Our special guests this month are: Elliott Serrano (columnist extraordinare for the Red Eye) and some of the cast and crew behind Space Happens!

Have you seen The Doubleclicks? They write and perform nerdy songs. We write and perform nerdy sketch comedy. Our paths were destined to cross. Thanks to our friends at Cards Against Humanity for making it happen.

Oh man. What a doozy. Dora is very new to battling the possibility of alcoholism, and when I asked what she wanted to talk to me about, that's what she said. So I acquiesced. Because who am I to say no to an interesting, heartfelt, and at times difficult conversation. Dora and I also made a decent attempt at keeping it light while we delved into her realization within the last month that she needed to make a serious change in her life where drinking is concerned.

Stephen Kropa is a big fanboy for two artisans (directors/writers/show runners/comedians...) who would probably consider themselves fanboys as well, Dan Harmon and Edgar Wright. Their bevy of pop culture influences on their own projects is a constant comfort and inspiration for Kropa, and I can't find any room to disagree with him on the ways they are similar creators when it comes to the blending of homages and nods with their own unique, very specific voices and visions as artists.
