Nerds Are Funny

Nerds In Real Life

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 8:00pm
Some Office: 1917 N Elston Ave, Chicago, IL

Every month, the Nerdologues invite friends and nerds from the community to share their stories. Some people do stand-up, perform sketches, or sing songs; a lot of people tell their tales. Then, it's compiled into a podcast.

In collaboration with the Chicago Design Museum for Design Week, this month's theme is "Discovery". Speakers include Jane Beachy, Philip Burton, Renata Graw, Tracie Hall, Mike Joosse, Joey Nakayama, Jessica Disu, Max Temkin, Matthew Terdich, and Kathryn Terrell. Learn more about the Chicago Design Museum here: http://chidm.com/

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. The awesome, not-for-profit Chicago Design Museum receives revenue from each ticket!

I had never heard the 2004 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox referred to as The Idiots until right before recording with Sean, but after the chat, I can certainly say the name is fitting. A term of endearment for a bunch of lovable weirdos who somehow managed a series of miraculous occurrences after 80+ years of the Curse of the Bambino, the Idiots are surely worth chatting about as they were probably the most unlikely candidates to break the curse that had been in place since the Sox traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees.

The appropriately named Rachel Farmer lights up and chats with me on the porch about life below the Mason-Dixon Line. After spending most of her life in LA (Lower Alabama) and the past nine years in Chicago, she's recently relocated back to Mobile. We talk about all the ways family, Chik-fil-a, church, and life in general have gotten more complicated since our simpler Southern days.
