In this episode we shed some light on 3 different types of nerds
1. Sports - how the national past time is really just Magic the Gathering for the masses
2. Nanowrimo - why an aspiring writer needs to avoid it and just get to work, and why a writer that says "someday I want to..." will probably never do it.
3. Christian pop rock - in nerd church we talk about hypocrisy is a charge that is often leveled at people but isn't always truly fair... and we set up the topic for next episode... Roger Martinez, the Christian heavy metal front-man that after years of ministry and recording with Vengeance Rising began to deny the existence of Christ and started pursuing atheism.
On this episode I ask how much of us as nerds is determined by genetics. I also talk about autumn in Iowa & the harvest. On nerd church I ask where we draw the line ethically when it comes to interacting or advertising to us nerds, if one knows we have exploitable attributes.
in this episode, recorded LIVE in Council Bluffs, Iowa... We talk about the pros and cons of introducing children into an otherwise perfectly self-indulgent adult nerd lifestyle. We also chat about toy collecting, specifically the results of my informal online poll about your favorite GI Joe, Star Wars, He Man, Transforner, and assorted other toys.
There are some strange audio gaffs at the transitions between segments. I apologize for these and I think I figured out why the music was cuing up in duplicate.
