    Nerd Pride Radio

    Nerd Pride Radio is a weekly podcast dedicated to all things nerd. The first half of every show consists of whatever geek topics have been on my mind lately: RPGs, technology, science, TV & movies, geek news, and all around nerd culture. The second half is always the Pod-O-Matic where I roll randomly on a chart of topics and questions sent in by listeners. Oh yeah... and there's always a little music and the Badass Movie Quote of the Week sandwiched in the middle there.

    I have a ton of fun doing this, and I invite you to join me. Try it out.

    [This thread, then, will also be my ongoing thread for announcements and updates... at least for now, since the announcement forum is closed.]

    For Christmas, Mike has not one... but TWO gaming topics this week: Method 1 characters, and the secret lives of teen roleplayers. Plus, Mike is apparently in love with Kaylee Frye and hates Twilight. Go figure. This week's awesome music is from King Charles, and R2's Pod-O-Matic asks all the tough questions: Hippo or chimp? Team Edward or Team Jacob? Voldemort or Sauron? Plus the final word on the superiority of real dice over random number generators. All that and a pegacorn? You bet! Merry Christmas!

    Enjoy!

    EPISODE 20 - Chimp with a Katana!

    It's the first episode of the new year! Mike talks about Pathfinder and gaming with his youngest sons. He havers on about his favorite cartoon voice actors and Order of the Stick. And somehow he still finds time for TWO movie reviews on the SciFi Double Feature! All of this, and R2 still brings the Pod-O-Matic, with bits on Saturday Night Live, Power Pack, an X-Men pillow fight, the final word on the greatest Star Trek captain of all time, plus... a little Inspiration.

    Enjoy!

    EPISODE 21 - Pegacorn Must Die

    Holy cow! There's three brand new segments this week! Mike explores the world's disdain for pegacorns in Pegacorns Revealed. He finally gives the cheese it's own segment in The Cheese Culture Report. Plus, there's Chinese pirates in The Unnamed History Segment. As if that wasn't enough, there's interstellar travel in The Science Corner, Instant Game fun on the Gaming Table, and Mike caps it all off by bringing back the Nerd Rage! Music from Hayseed Dixie. And on the Pod-O-Matic, R2 brings Rock-Paper-Scissors, Blade Runner, more John Hughes movies and a classic Kiss/Marry/Kill. Can you believe you're getting all this for free?

    Enjoy!

    Episode 25 - Radio Silence

    Mike opens with the greatest astronomer to ever lose his nose in a duel, followed by the most awesome toy of the year. Mike introduces The MaryAnn Effect and havers on at length about his ROKU! Plus Jabba the Truck, Casa de mi Padre, and the Whitney Houston time machine. But that's not all! On the Pod-O-Matic, find out what one listener has done with Joss Whedon's head, what exactly Number Two's duty is, as well as the winner of the ultimate nerd showdown: Pan vs. Rabbit (plus Polly Pocket takes on Rainbow Bright in the bonus warmup match)! So tell me... do you think you're nerd enough?

    Episode 26 - Portal, GenCon, and Comic Timing

    Late but still awesome! Recoving from illness, Mike still manages to pack tons of nerdy goodness into this abbreviated podcast: Mike finally discovers the joy that is Portal, plus gives his ameteur advice on attending GenCon. New Futurama episodes hit Mike's Roku, plus he havers on about celebrity baby names, and in the new Comic Timing segment, he recounts breaking into neighbor's homes as a child. And with R2 batting cleanup on the Pod-O-Matic, there's some Toontown, old gaming war stories, and your favorite 80's sitcom cast as D&D characters. C'mon, you know you can't look away now!

    Enjoy!

    Episode 27 - Warrior Dash, io9, and Raptors

    Mike opens with Warrior Dash--the roughest, toughest, meanest race to ever wear a Viking helmet. Then it's all about Shared Space: traffic without signs. Io9--the geek news site designed solely to cater to Mike's nerd predilictions. He waxes philosophical about TV mini-series, and wraps up with a healthy dose of Nerd Rage! Then it's R2's turn: he cranks out a baker's dozen on the Pod-O-Matic with such vital, life-altering questions as... Obi Wan v. Jet Li? Your favorite Greek city-state? And what would Mike do for a Klondike Bar? You can't miss this... the fate of the universe hangs in the balance!

    Enjoy!

    I'm back from my summer haiatus, and there's a month's worth of episodes for everyone to catch up on. Here's the latest:

    Episode 34 - Cloaca Maxima
    Mike explores the underworld of Rome in the History Segment, babbles about his kids again at the Gaming Table, spends time in the Science Corner going from Neptune to space colonization to mass drivers and space elevators, and then wraps up with something different: spicy food. On the Pod-O-Matic, R2 serves up entries from over a dozen different listeners: Direcat has a new take on zombie defense. Skree explores werewolf pirates. Brasky *****es about laugh tracks. Daz yearns for more Daredevil. Ximni starts a new religion. And that's just the tip of the iceberg--there's so much more! Listen to this episode or Paul dad's will beat you with his cheese sword!

    Enjoy!

    Episode 35 - Product Placement
    Mike opens with a Book Report: More Song of Ice and Fire PLUS... the best time travel stories of the 20th century. In the Science Corner, Mike obsesses over hexaflexagons. Then in the Unnamed History Segment, Mike tells what cool stuff he has learned from his 3rd grader. You'll be amazed! But all that is just the teaser for the greatest product placement in all of movie history. Then R2 takes over for the Pod-O-Matic, and Mike covers D&D vampires vs. Underworld vampires, World of Warcraft's assimilation of Kung-Fu Panda, awkward gamers of all ages, and The Kids in the Hall. Add it all up, and you have the must-hear nerd podcast of the season. Don't miss it!

    Enjoy!
