A few years ago in an iO theater that no longer exists, the Nerdologues put up a show that had a little fun with the epically terrible Star Wars Holiday Special. This year, on the eve of the Force Awakens release, we're doing it again!

Note this is an ALL-NEW COMEDY SHOW, just with a similar premise -- our hero, Joe, has to get home to Ohio to enjoy Life Day celebrations with the Gennaro family, but some malicious Force is trying to stop him.

Suggested $10 donation at the door, all proceeds go to Chicago Loot Drop. Come see our show and do some good this holiday season! There'll also be a charity raffle with cool Star Wars prizes!

Thanks to Your Stories' new weekly release schedule, we can FINALLY do a relevant Halloween episode! Our special guests this month hail from the Match 3 podcast, a show dedicated to exploring the cultural context of video games. 

Fisticuffs! is a free-for-brawl fighting card game that we made. Four to six players engage in head-to-head (-to-head-to-head) constant combat until the frenzy peaks and one player emerges victorious. We put it on Kickstarter in June, and we totally got funded: 132% of our goal.
