Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 158 – Science Circus
Mike and Aidan tackle some topics today, starting with the recent Clowndemic. This is followed by a story about stargazing and interesting science conversations between Mike and his kids. The best age for babies, Dissociative Identity Disorder, the upcoming Nerd Pride Deadpool 2017, the most famous scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and how much Mike loves the music in Luke Cage. Then comes R2 to deliver a few listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, and finally Mike and Aidan rush through some Listener Betrayal to wrap up the episode. Definitely the episode that wins us the Nobel prize. Don’t miss this one.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 157 – Clowndemic
This week, Mike shares two favorite comics: Flutter (again) and Stand Still Stay Silent. Then he delves into his thoughts about libertarianism. It’s a full Gaming Table as Mike covers Target’s game shelf, the good and bad of reskinned board games, an actual play report on Jomsvikinger, and Slowpoke–a new game of Mike’s own invention. Daredevil season 2 and Luke Cage make an appearance on ROKU, and then it’s time for R2 to roll out with 9 brand-new listener-submitted Pod-O-Matic questions. They cover getting older, elemental plane vacations, workplace regulation, gay dreams, whiskey vs vodka vs lager vs cider, and so much more! If the gods made ambrosia for your ears, this would be it!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 156 – Pure in Heart
It’s a Fingertips episode! And it’s very late. Mike and Aidan cover a range of topics, from Netflix to online voting to cat tracking. It’s good rambling fun. Get it while supplies last!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 155 – Elefonz
This week is Aidan’s podcast, and Mike’s just along for the ride. Secret Hitler is on the Gaming Table. Aidan tells a joke. Then on the Science Fiction Double Feature, Aidan unleashes five whole movie reviews. Then Mike helps him with an even dozen Pod-O-Matics–Trump, flash drives, The Guild vs. Dr. Horrible, Boaty McBoatface revisited, and so much more. You don’t want to miss Aidan’s debut as host; it’s like missing the first appearance of Deadpool (New Mutants #98). Don’t be THAT guy. Listen now!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 154 – Aidan’s Revenge
In this episode, Mike talks about sequelitis briefly before stumbling awkwardly through a discussion of racism. Then there’s frog glue in the Science Corner, disappointing customer service at the Gaming Table, plus a new Nerd of the Week. R2 rolls out ten new listener submitted questions and we wrap it all up with a pretty meaty Listener Betrayal. The must-listen podcast episode of Labor Day 2016. Don’t miss it!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 153 – Frog Glue
No meticulously plotted portion this week. Instead, this week’s entire show is guided by listener questions and commentary. Mike leaves Listener Betrayal open for over five hours and splits the show between that and more than a dozen Pod-O-Matic entries. Tune in before it’s too late!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 152 – Whither Caz
A sad episode: R2’s been kidnapped, pimped out bubble and all! In his honor, Mike and his kids roll out 10 new listener submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic.

Kyle’s movie-a-day challenge, the president’s alignment, and so much more! Plus there’s even a little Listener Betrayal… but only a little. Mike’s on the downhill side of his second century of podcasts. Don’t miss this historic event! Listen now!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 151 – Kidnapped!
150 Episodes! Crazy, right? On this one, Mike pauses to recognize the passing of Kenny Baker. Then he recounts his experience at the I Love the 90’s concert (spoiler, it involves Vanilla Ice and the Ninja Rap). On the Science Corner, there’s Greenland sharks–400 year old giants of the sea. The Gaming Table highlights this month’s community game night. And on ROKU!, Mike laments his dearth of time for watching all the great television that is available to him. The Pod-O-Matic delivers seven new listener-submitted questions, including NaNoWriMo, Nerd Pride shirts, awesome foreign films, the BEST board game and so much more. This is the podcast you’ve waited 150 episodes for. Don’t let it pass you by!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 150 – Sedna’s Urine Pot
It’s more talk about GenCon on the drive home. But this time with improved audio! Mike and Dave are pretty punchy at this point and ramble all over the place, but the important part is that GenCon was AWESOME!
