Nerds Online

Wherein I sat down with my dear friend and (former) fellow member of The Nerdologues, Alex Talavera. I've never seen No Reservations, but I want to start after hearing Alex talk about it for a little under an hour (even though it seems like most of what Alex gets from the show is rage jealousy).

Hoo boy oh boy, episode 37! Today we're talking with Kevin Horst (IO's Trolley, Ben-Hur) about some of the best and worst examples of morality systems in gaming, and Clayton's shoes make weird noises. Enjoy!

This week I sat down with a real life Billy Shakes! I also made the dumbest joke I could've possibly made (you just read it... it's that Billy Shakes thing). This episode is truly wonderful. Stephanie shares how she came to write and publish numerous plays that have been produced all over the country and touches on how her Cuban heritage has been an inspiration for her throughout her life. Play on!

Here's the second and final episode we recorded at Chicago's excellent Cat & Mouse Game Store, and just like last time we're back talking about all things game-related.

Ladies, gentlemen, and other nerds of Chicago, please enjoy our first of two episodes recorded at Cat & Mouse Game Store, who were fantastic hosts for the evening (and sold us lots of cool stuff!). To match our temporary new environment, we decided to ask people to use "Games" as their topic, and we got a lot of great stories!

You may not know this about me, but I love me some Superman. So last week when the Nerdologues teamed up with Chicago Loot Drop to riff on the classic Richard Donner Superman film, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get some cool cats together and talk about what the Man of Steel means to them. This is the first invitation-only Your Stories we ever did, and it was a ton of fun. Included here are great friends, bloggers, musicians, retailers, and even an Eisner Award-winning artist/writer. Big thanks to our guests for making it out and to all of you for listening. You Will Believe A Man Can Share A Great Story (TM).

Buckle up, podcast listeners, and bring your fire hoses.  This discussion with Ryan Ben about one of his favorite films is a total delight.  Even someone who doesn't know Ryan can get a good sense of his character from his breakdown of Backdraft.  He acknowledges its weaknesses and silliness while praising its themes and simplicity.  Get into it!
