Batman FTW

Yup. I listened to the recent episode on Batman. Yup. I loved it.

Nerds of Color is full of awesome conversation, diverse points of view (even ones where the hosts don't agree), and a whole lot of totally dorky nerdery! Their recent shows on what is happening around us are also essential listening, and I appreciate so much that they explored these things while still flying that geek flag (our community needs the wake-up call!).

This show deserves your earholes. So click that button! :D

A can’t-miss for me each week

Mondays are only bearable because of this podcast. Every episode is like a mini-comic-con with Keith, Don and Shawn (we miss you!!)
