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.

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.
Ritzy was busy playing with Bill Gates’ first computer while Lisa celebrated Lisapalooza (birthday fortnight, bitches!). But we’re here, we’re nerding out, and we’re armed to the teeth. Join us.
