Hello, and welcome to the 26th recording of the Nerd Fu Podcast (give or take a recording snafu back around EP 20), where your resident NERDS Steve and Sully cover the latest in Nerd news. This week, we have our first official guest host – Cousin Chris!
Our topics on the podcast include SCREENSHOT (movies & tv), STOCKPILE (collectibles), HIGH SCORE (gaming), COMICS n CONS (no description needed) and WILD CARD (our catch-all, random stuff category).
It’s on like Comic-Con!
As always, we’re here to share the coolest things we’ve stumbled on, and we want to make it easy on you – so here are some links to the things we covered during Episode 26..
Don’t forget to enter our Supernatural Second Chance giveaway, brought to you with the help of our friends at teeVillain & SewGeekAustin!
We’ve even included a SECRET WORD in the podcast that will help you earn more entries in the giveaway.
