R2 shows up just long enough to deliver three brand-new, listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, and then we even manage some listener betrayal. All of this in the tightest half-hour of podcasting you’ll find this week! Listen now!

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.

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!

After that, R2 delivers a dozen new listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic. 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. All that and a half-dozen more that are just as awesome. Other podcasts only wish they could be this cool. You need to listen now!

Hurry up and get your listen on before it’s gone forever!

R2 delivers four new listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, including Mike’s most anticipated movies of 2017, his favorite rap song, the last time he was moved to tears, and what song he wants to hear on repeat for the rest of his life.
