Super special guest, author Chris Farnsworth, joins us to talk about his newest President’s Vampire tale, “Red, White & Blood”…plus lots of other writerly, pop culture-y, and monstery stuff. Plus we bend it like Fassbender, drink the Ice T, and get It on. Big ups to our home town, Whale’s Vagina.
GAME OF MFIN THRONES! We bid you adieu. Plus Mad Men, Kevin Smith, other podcasts we love, an aborted trip to the MTV Movie Awards, a LOT of people-whose-names-we-can’t-remember, and reading (it’s FUNdamental)!
Art Hustle cards announced. There will be – drum roll, please – a Ritzy Periwinkle card!
Have we mentioned lately that you should check out Hollywood Babble On, our favoritest podcast?
T.I. attended the True Blood premiere. Here’s a gallery of the pretty people in attendance.
Ritzy attended the Nerdist “live” podcast. We love Nerdist…episode 200, with Kevin Smith, was pretty awesome. Lots of talk about podcasting if you’re a fellow or aspiring ‘caster!
Lisa’s fave online message boards for TV: TV Without Pity!
The Nerd Out Summer Reading List: The Walking Dead Compendium 1. Good read, highly recommended. REAMDE Ready Player One Storm Front – Dresden Files Book 1
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.

Matt’s books on Amazon Prion diseases are brain diseases that can make the jump from animals to humans (see: Mad Cow Disease).
The Zombie Response Team! (We interview them with many ankle-biters in the background…enjoy the melodious sounds of screaming children.)
Welcome back! During our hiatus, Ritzy was busy making the world a better place in SE Asia (including catching up on Game of Thrones)…while Lisa consumed a prodigious amount of entertainment so you don’t have to. Thank her later.
…A lot of this. Only cock-ier. Hey, Lisa had fun. CES
Lisa guested on The Table Set podcast about getting your Mardi Gras party on. If you love podcasts about entertaining, parties, cooking, eating, drinking: check ’em out, they’re great. The Art of Flight – action sports at its finest/most badass. Haywire: girls kicking ass. What’s not to like?
Plus loads of movies and TV y’all have heard of. So Google it.
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.
LINKS AOS x Little Lotus – help Ritzy and Army of Snipers raise money to visit refugee camps @ the Thailand/Myanmar border and bring some art to the kids and peeps there.
We heart The Walking Dead. Did you see the webisodes? What do you think about the new season?
Pan Am may or may not survive being on “the bubble,” but those ladies did some CIA work.
Nightmares Fear Factory photos. See above. HOURS of enjoyment. Trust. (It took us at least an hour to pick a couple fave photos.)
Lisa read The Psychopath Test. If you have to ask: you aren’t one. Recommended! Zombie Buy: your one stop shop for the ZA. @zombiebuys on Twitter. Launching soon.
Want to experience the ZA? (“No, really? Are you insane?” – Lisa) Atlanta’s ZA takes you into a post-Apocalyptic city to experience it. If your undies can take it.
Breaking news: NEW GEORGE ROMERO ZOMBIE MOVIE.
We’re meeting TX’s Zombie Response Team on their swing thru So Cal! They sell some cool stuff and are folks after our own hearts. Interview to come…. NEED A HAND TRUCK? Ritzy Checks Your Tech for the best dolly (if you’re into lugging shit around, or if your man won’t step up [and if he won’t = different conversation]).
