What’s up nerds. Welcome to the Nerd Fu podcast – Gears on the Bus. If you’re looking for the latest & greatest in nerd/geek news, then this IS the podcast you’ve been looking for.
This week, 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 like the Coalition!
Check it out. We’ve got links to some of the things we talked about on the podcast. Not all of the things, but the things you probably want to throw your money at.
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.
