Even for the quasi-geek

I’ll say right off that I’m not into all the different genres and fandoms that Eric delves into. I pick and choose episodes. But they’re all well produced, he’s an engaging host, and I really enjoy them. Often I wind up down a path I haven’t followed before, but even familiar territory is fun to tread with an organized and interesting guide + guest.

Solid source

The topics of the show are interesting, though sometimes they become significantly less about nerdom but go into other obscure culture parts (like WWE). It's still a fun show though and I'm glad I can still get interested in random topics like the Music of Godzilla.

Nerds, Words, and Flyrds!

Okay, so flyrds isn't a real thing--that I know of--but that's what this show is all about, the spawns of creativity and imagination! And nerdy things and wordy bits. I've loved this show since day one and am thrilled that it's still on the podcast air.
