From the podcast: Your Stories

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Hey everyone, welcome to the January episode of the Nerdologues Present: Your Stories podcast. I hope everyone had a great holiday season! Once again we're coming at you with a great collection of audience-generated stories for your enjoyment. We've got a good one for you. You'll hear blogger Shawn Boyle calculate the preciousness of life mathematically. Comedian Andrew Bentley and myself share two love letters to musicians named Bruce - Dickinson and Springsteen, respectively. Additionally, Kevin Reader and Alex Talavera from the Nerdologues share stories from previous runs of sketch shows, including a scathing Amazon review and a Crisis on Infinite Alexes. If you want to be a part of the next Your Stories recording, it'll take place on Sunday, January 15 at a venue to be determined. Check www.nerdologues.com for more info!

Speaking of shows, it's January in Chicago, and you know what that means - it's time for the Chicago Sketchfest. The Nerdologues has not one but two spots in the festival lined up, so come on down to Stage 773 - 1225 W Belmont - Thursday, January 5 at 8:00 PM or Thursday, January 12 at 9:00 PM for some sweet Nerdologues action.
