Our nerdy nostalgia podcast has somehow reached 20 episodes

About a year ago, I had a terribly stupid idea that I pitched to a friend during a brief moment when I was out of my damn mind. It went something like this:   And that was it. I mean, not really. There was planning and this and that, setting up pages and feeds, yada frickin’ yada. All the boring behind the scenes stuff. But the gist of it all was, “Let’s do a podcast waxing nostalgic about the 1990s” … which was an odd idea for me, since I’m not a particularly nostalgic person. Look forward, says I. Behind is bullshit. But it seemed like a fun idea for a podcast to add to the Youtube stuff we’d be doing together, so why not?…

An interview with yours truly on The Walking Dead, from 94.3 The Point

The Nerd Out With Me podcast is now a thing, and I have no idea why

I’ve been doing Youtube videos for a little over a year now, and by “doing” I mean sitting in my attic drinking beer with a friend and letting him turn them into fun video nonsense about board games, toys, movies, and whatever else suits our fancy. They’ve been fun and, for me, low impact — which is exactly what I wanted when I signed up for it, because the last thing I needed was another project. So I don’t know what the hell was going through my head when I suggested we do a podcast. What a terrible idea. See, I record and produce them. I’ve done it before, years ago when I did the Year of Hitchcock podcast with Jim McDevitt, my friend and…
