What up, nerds? We watched The Oscars – and a show with no “Drive” is a show we just cannot get behind – plus bring you up to date on all our TV faves (who’s on the bubble? who’s getting cancelled? what’s renewed?)…a service for which we anticipate you’ll be eternally grateful.
Also, hey, did you know we’re on Facebook and Twitter? Indeed! Hit us up, we’d love to hear from you.
OK, we’ll admit it: we’re obsessed with the Zombie Apocalypse aka THE ZAPOCALYPSE. We started planning this zombie-only episode – the first in a series – from The Nerd Out’s genesis, and are super excited to bring interviews with two amazing experts: Matt Mogk of The Zombie Research Society, who answers some burning questions (zombie biology! how the virus might spread! why Los Angeles is screwed!) and and The Zombie Response Team, Zapocalypse survivalists and cool folks with a plan.

We’ve been busy prepping for the Zombie Apocalypse aka ZA aka THE ‘POCALYPSE. But The Nerd Out gals are never too busy to nerd out…with the cock out.
