The ongoing saga of curiously decent British aristocrats in the English countryside trying to come to terms with the changing economic realities of the modern age while their oddly loyal staff is surrounded on all sides by scheming sociopaths and petty rivalries. Jolly good stuff.
WARNING: May contain spoilers for the first two and half seasons (plus a BIG one for season 4, which we haven’t even watched yet).

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 about the first half of the month before they hit the free-account 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 (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.
Check out the Episode Guide (or click the Special Editions category) to find them all, but this is first one. TWILIGHT. Whoa! We started off with a pretty damn big hurdle.

This week, without a party of a dozen dwarves to lead the way, just the two of them, like Sam and Frodo, Jakob and Mandi enter the desolation. The Desolation of Smaug, specifically. Or Smahowg, as he’s known to his friends. Apparently.
