Mike does his nerd thing at Scout camp this week. Recording from the Trading Post at Camp Cedars, Mike talks about how much he enjoys going away to camp every year. Then it’s Community Game Night, where Mike shares his experiences with the games Battlesheep and Above and Below. Also on the docket: Missoula Children’s Theater. Plus there’s three new listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, and a spirited round of Listener Betrayal. Overall, a good start to a week in the woods!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 142 – Camp, Game Night, and Missoula
On this Father’s Day episode, Mike talks about Jennie Wood’s comic Flutter, spending the night in the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo, the Higgs Boson, the current death toll in his Paranoia game (three), and how annoying commercials are on Hulu. Then it’s Pod-O-Matic time, and R2 rolls out a half-dozen new listener-submitted questions, plus of course, Listener Betrayal. If you have half as much fun listening to this as Mike had recording it, then he will have enjoyed it twice as much! That’s a guarantee!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 141 – A Night at the Zoo
It’s an episode where I talk about nerd stuff… SURPRISE!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 140 – Mostly Dead
Double Science Corner this week! First there’s the Schmidt Insect Sting Pain Index, where a badass scientist went out and intentionally got stung by the worst of the worst just to measure how much they hurt. Then there’s more science as Mike goes on at least semi-coherently about the inscrutable complexity of the human brain. After that, he talks about immersive theater and an amazing Alice in Wonderland-based production out of Brooklyn called Then She Fell that he so wishes he could see. At the Gaming Table, it’s all anticipation of upcoming events, and the Pod-O-Matic brings another half-dozen listener-submitted questions. Hurry now so you can be in the loop when everyone’s talking about this podcast around the water cooler tomorrow.
