Mike kicks this episode off with weaponized jalapeños. Then a little Metatalk about how he puts the show together. Mike talks about moral dilemmas with his kids in their Pathfinder game at the Gaming Table, and the Science Corner is full of Voyager spacecraft, 8-track tapes, and alien first contact. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s the iCloud hack in the Nerd Culture Report, NSA spying works its way into the Roku segment, and of course R2 brings it all home in the Pod-O-Matic. R2 has Mike’s favorite RPG class, tap water vs. bottled, the movie Frozen, yet another look at Mike’s shoe size, old fat actors, lightsabers, and Mike’s favorite starship (hint: it’s Serenity). There’s no need to look anywhere else to fulfill all your nerd podcast listening needs. Tune in now!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 61 – Jalapeños in the Mist
Mike’s doing a lot of ranting in the meticulously plotted portion of the show. Even the Science Corner turns to Nerd Rage at the end. Plus he laments sexism in gaming culture and horrible horrible cell phone commercials in the actual Nerd Rage segment. The show lightens up and revisits Emperor Palpatine in the Right Said Thread bit, and then it’s straight on to the Pod-O-Matic! R2 has everything you ever wanted to know: clown skills, Disney Princesses (again), fish sandwiches, Mike’s favorite D&D world, his favorite orcs, the joys of being old, and more than three more! How does he fit all this nerdacity into only an hour? By making this hour 71 minutes long! That’s more value than you know what to do with!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 60 – Zen and the Art of Snake
Holy blueberries! Mike is talking up a blue streak this time. He waxes poetic about his new Minecraft world. The Science Corner gets all sciency about what happens when you get sucked out of your space station in your pajamas (now with Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers). And then in a brand new segment, Mike spends a good half hour following his train of thought through all things Star Wars. So, you’re saying to yourself: with all that nerdy goodness, there’s no WAY he had room for the Pod-O-Matic… and that’s where you’d be WRONG! R2 is out in full force with listener contributions on Sudoku, Ninja-Barbarians, Carlton from Fresh Prince, Purina Sloth Chow… and so much more! THIS is the Nerd Pride Radio episode you have waited your entire life for. Don’t waste it.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 59 – Down the Exogorth Hole
Pathfinder’s Rise of the Runelords is still on Mike’s Gaming Table this week. Then Mike revisits Robin Williams and Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. He rounds out the first half of the show with a Nerd Rage about his evil cable provider. And as always, R2 is there to carry the second half with the Pod-O-Matic. This week R2 has PopRocks vs. Nerds, Mike Jones vs. Mike Jones, 3D movies, the definition of joy, Mike’s IQ, and at least four more! Listen now before you pee your pants in anticipation!

Something was wrong with the sound the first time around, so I’ve tried cleaning it up and boosting it. It’s not perfect, but it’s better. Here’s the reposted version.
