Mike opens with a History segment about Julie D’Aubigny–La Maupin–swashbuckling, cross-dressing, bisexual, badass, opera-singing swordswoman of the 17th century. Then on the Science Corner, hatching eggs without shells, the beautiful and painful Cowkiller Ant, and riveting talk about lichens. Mike gives an update about his Pathfinder game at the Gaming Table, and in Pod People, he raves about the newly launched Futurama podcast: Slurmcast. All of this, and there’s still 7 brand new listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, and a full load of Listener Betrayal to round us out. Listening to this week’s episode is also worth 3 full points of extra-credit on your final grade, so start early. Every minute counts.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 146 – Cowkiller
This week involves a lot of theater talk, including Little Shop of Horrors, and more Pokemon Go talk than you’d expect, considering Mike’s never played the game. And lots of the intervening minutes are filled with R2 and a bunch of listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic. You have to listen right away–listening to Nerd Pride Radio has been proven to make you a better person!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 145 – Little Pod of Horrors
Mike starts off with the latest game night report, but then R2 makes a triumphant return to the podcast for an all Pod-O-Matic episode. With a full 25 listener submitted questions, Mike and his kids cover everthing from dice and curly fries and the X-Files to drunk gummi bears and who wins in a fight between a dragon and Cybernetic King Kong! Welcome back, R2, indeed!
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 144 – Gross
Mike’s last podcast from Camp Cedars 2016. He talks about camp again, plus everything that popped into his head this week: science, astronomy, siafu – the killer ants from Crystal Skull, inkjet printers, linguistics… I don’t know… a bunch of stuff. Mike was pretty punchy by the time he recorded it. But trust me… it’s awesome. There’s even a handful of listener-submitted Pod-O-Matics, and some decent Listener Betrayal. So come on in and set a spell.
