Lock up your children! Episode 03 stalks the land!
You thought you were safe, but you were wrong — dead wrong. Nyerd continues to ravage your mind with unholy wisdom, as Jon and Jesse present Episode 03!
We elect to go a different route this time out, focusing on a single topic:
- Geek Identity. We take a thorough and engrossing look into what it means to be a nyerd in today’s society. We discuss how the terms “nerd” and “geek” have changed over the years, and how the mainstream adoption of geek culture has forever changed the parameters of how nyerds interact with their interests, each other, and those who gave them wedgies in the locker room.
Special Note: We experienced some minor audio problems while recording and editing this episode, so please forgive the occasional sonic hiccup.
