Hi! And welcome to the Nerd Fu podcast – Season 2: Episode 10. If you’re looking for the latest & greatest in nerd/geek news, then this IS the podcast you’ve been looking for.
“As always”, we bring you the latest in Nerd News, including SCREENSHOT (movies & tv), STOCKPILE (collectibles), HIGH SCORE (gaming), COMICS n CONS (that one explains itself) and WILD CARD (our catch-all, random stuff category).
It’s on, unlike Amazon! (that’s a Pepsi Perfect reference)
