Break out the Entertainment Weekly and pull up IMDb and AV Club in different browser tabs because Rob and I are about to get deep into some pop culture goodness. Rob is an incredibly nice guy and an excellent actor/improviser, and he goes into some really interesting details on how he became a fan of pop culture in general (Looney Toons played a big role!) and how it continues to feed into his creative life (the phrase "Comedy Cops" is used!).
Happy new year! We start 2014 off with a brand new guest, John Sabine (The Late 90's, Second City) discussing Gone Home (skip 8:00 - 12:00 if you haven't played it) and his love/addiction for Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword. Enjoy the episode; here's the link to the game's grammy winning soundtrack:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nb-jk6Ftx7o
It's the first Nerdologuecast of 2014! Join host Chris Geiger plus Nerdologue members Claire Friedman, Kevin Reader, and Mary Beth Smith as they chat about game shows, TV commercials, babies, and gifs (how do you pronounce that word, anyway?!).
It's fitting Matt chose to talk about board games because I think this episode has the fun and enthusiasm of sitting down for a rousing game with friends. Matt tells the best stories and so aptly applies his love of board games to his job with gamification AND to his passion for improv in the search for the game and beyond.
Folks, it's here. Episode 54, and our 2013 retrospective with our good friend Kellen Terrett. We look back at news stories, best and worst games, and things we're looking forward to. It's a big 'ol dog pile of love with the exception of yelling at Tim's "Most Anticipated Game" pick. Happy new year!
It's the last Your Stories podcast of 2013, and just like last year, we thought we'd take this time to highlight some of our favorite stories from the previous 12 months. We've also got brand new introductions to these tales by some Nerdologues/audience members who liked them a whole lot, as well as the usual musical accompaniment.
Hola mis amigos! Enjoy this sweet ep with my new friend Christopher Kidder-Mostrom who explores his passion for translating that started in a grad program and has culminated in his theatre company Commedia Beauregard. Chris and his company have an incredible mission statement to bring important works of theatre from other languages into English while keeping the essence of the pieces intact.
Merry any holiday you could possibly be celebrating today! Our gift to you is our first guest ever, Vince Portacci (The Late 90's, Scoundrels) back on the podcast to discuss the Borderlands series, and how our traits and neuroses shape the characters we create in games. Enjoy this, and come back next week with our 2013 wrap up show!
Our last brand-new episode of the year wraps up our month-long theme of "Across the Universe," which featured wonderful guest storytellers from Improvised Star Trek and A Klingon Christmas Carol as well as the usual group of Nerdologues members and friends!
