Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 187 – Stink of Game Night
Thanks to a wealth of listener feedback, Mike revisits the tricky subject of complimenting strangers. Then he talks about his own game setting for post-apocalyptic superheroes, Legacy of Justice. On the Science Corner, there’s great white sharks and why you can’t keep them in captivity. Plus the Black Bomber, who very nearly became the worst mistake DC comics ever made. In yet another Uncomfortable Topic, Mike has a frustrating conversation about Planned Parenthood with a coworker. And then he’s got reviews of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Iron Fist. It’s a jam-packed episode, so after all of that, R2 only has time for one Pod-O-Matic question before we get to Listener Betrayal. Come and listen now–you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wish it wasn’t over so soon.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 186 – The Black Bomber
Mike reviews Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (spoiler: it tastes terrible). Then, after a couple random tidbits and a rant about checkout lines, Mike spends a while trying to sort out his feelings on the ways our world objectifies women and his personal struggle to not come off as a creepy old man. To save him from the existential pit of angst, R2 rolls in with a handful of new listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic. Quentin Tarantino films, the grossness of children, space elevators, and transforming into a car. Overall, not a bad way to spend an hour. And bonus: we get to do it together!

There’s Mike’s musical princess name, what to say to young Lindsay Lohan if given the chance, why Mike’s hand is stuck in a toaster, Pokemon, and of course where in the world is Caveman San Diego.
