Episode 007: Herd of Nerds (Special Edition)

February 25, 2009

Sci-Fi Conventions. Jakob’s never been to one, Mandi’s been to a few. What makes them so embarrassing, weird and downright icky? And does Jakob only refuse to go to one because George Lucas murdered his inner child?

A NOTE ON THE SPECIAL EDITIONS: Before we joined the Simply Syndicated network, the first 31 episodes of Nerd Hurdles were hosted on Podbean. Technically, they still are. But since letting our pro-account lapse there’s been a bandwidth problem were the files are only available for the first half of the month before they hit the Podbean ceiling. While SimSyn’s hosting was on Libsyn, we started releasing these episodes as “Special Editions” with newly recorded introductions. When SimSyn moved our hosting to Soundcloud, those files were again lost (and we’d only managed to upload the first 10 anyway). So, here they are once more; uploaded to a 3rd audio service and hopefully the last.

Episode 006: Harry Potter (Special Edition)

February 16, 2009

Dear Listeners, our heroes didn’t intend to talk about wizard people, Harry Potter just happened. They’ll talk about whatever it was they had planned next week. Even a Nimbus 2000 couldn’t get Jakob over this hurdle. Mandi is reading Snape/Rickman MPREG.

Episode 005: Superzeroes (Special Edition)

February 11, 2009

Superheroes. Jakob and Mandi never really got them. Except for Adam West. They tried to get their spidey senses tingling on a dark night but ended up with more debits than credits in their superhero ledger. Everyone’s got one.George Takei even makes a cameo at the end like in a certain actually good, post-modern superhero epic that we forgot to mention.

Episode 004: His Dark Materials (Special Edition)

February 1, 2009

A trilogy of fantastic books, one fantastic crapfest of a film. Jakob and Manditry to figure out what went wrong with Hollywood’s take on Book OneThe Golden Compass and discuss the nerd hurdle Jakob had which almost prevented him from reading the truly wonderful books.
