Welcome to the Nerd Fu podcast! If you’re looking for the latest & greatest in nerd/geek news, then this IS the podcast you’ve been looking for.
Every week 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 like Oxymoron!
Things are gonna be a little different from here on out. Instead of posting a zillion links every week, which takes a LONG time to pull together, we are just going to include links to some of our favorite topics and/or items from the podcast. We figure everyone knows how to use Google and can pretty quickly/easily find what they need in just a few seconds.
As Always, we’d appreciate it if you would use the links we provided below. For most of them, we get a little referral when/if you purchase. That helps keep Nerd Fu up and running.

- Don’t forget to join our mailing list. We send it out (usually on Friday) to keep you up-to-date on the latest in nerd news. ** We wouldn’t want you missing out on any awesome contests, sales, offers or extra entries (hint, hint)!
