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.

This is our fourth annual "Fanfiction February" episode. In the second half of the night, the Nerdologues are going to dramatize a He-Man script Eric wrote when he was 14. It's going to be amazing.

Shannon's been giving tours of Chicago for about a year now, and she gave an hour of her time in the off season to tell me about what works, what doesn't, and who the biggest troublemakers are on her laissez-faire bus tours. She gets the opportunity to cater tours however she wants, so she's had a great time diving into more of Chicago's darker, more realistic history.
