Nerdette is a weekly interview show that helps you unwind with fun conversations, inspiring ideas, and delightful recommendations. And join us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month for the Nerdette Bookclub!
Nerdette Book Club: ‘Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow’
Nerdette Book Club is back to discuss our September book, ‘Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow’ by Gabrielle Zevin. Our panelists are Jason Concepcion, co-host of ‘The Official Game of Thrones Podcast: House of the Dragon’ with Nerdette’s Greta Johnsen, and Amber Sparks, author of ‘And I Do Not Forgive You.’
Special thanks to all of the listeners who contributed your voices to this chat! We love y’all.
Hell, or hell yeah?!
WBEZ’s Adora Namigadde and Lauren Ober, host of the podcast ‘The Loudest Girl in the World, discuss ukuleles, ants, and scrunchies, all of which had news-worthy moments this week.
Plus, what should you do with old clothes? We ask The Atlantic’s Amanda Mull.
God save the new boy Queen
WBEZ’s Meha and Ahmad and The New Yorker’s Helen Rosner join Greta to talk about King Charles’s standoff with a pen, the new unsend feature for iPhones, and pumpkin spice’s entrée into Merriam-Webster.
Then, we talk to romance writer Jasmine Guillory about her eighth book, ‘Drunk on Love.’
Does ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ need a special master?
We are living for the drama behind the scenes of the film Don’t Worry Darling. Our fabulous guests, Christina Tucker, co-host of Autostraddle’s ‘Wait, Is This a Date?’ podcast, and Margaret Willison, culture writer and podcaster with Not Sorry Productions, unpack it all.
Plus, W. Kamau Bell and Kate Schatz stop by to discuss their new book ‘Do the Work! An Antiracist Activity Book.’
Nerdette Book Club: Gabrielle Zevin on ‘Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow’
We have a spoiler-free conversation with author Gabrielle Zevin about our September book club pick, ‘Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow.’
Book club will be back on the last Tuesday of the month and you are invited to participate! Send us a voice memo with your take on ‘Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow’ and we will try to include you in the episode. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The moon and Thee Megan
The co-hosts of NPR's Code Switch, Gene Demby and B.A. Parker, join us to discuss moon launches, Megan Thee Stallion on Marvel, and a marinara traffic jam. Plus, Camryn Jones talks about playing Tiffany in the Amazon Prime show 'Paper Girls,' which is about a squad of teen time travelers.
Great variety of content and guests. Funny, informative and a little like listening to some close friends talk about cool stuff and corgis. Highly recommended for nerds and non-nerds alike.
Such wonderful listening! Thanks for making my commute & gym time go faster & enjoyable!
Nerd Alert! 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨
Tricia & Greta are brilliant and engaging hosts, their curiosity about the world inspires me and their guests always fascinate me. My all time fave ep (so far!) has to be with Tom Hanks talking typewriters.
