Welcome to season 3 of the Nerd Fu podcast – Episode 5. If you’re looking for the latest & greatest in nerdy/geeky news, then this IS the podcast you’ve been looking for.
Every week (for the most part), 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 FU-BITS (our catch-all, random stuff category).
It’s on like Liam Neeson!
Here are links to SOME of the awesome nerdy stuff we covered on the podcast. Not all of the things, but most of the stuff that you might wanna throw your money at. Support your “Nerd Needs” by supporting Nerd Fu and use the links we’ve provided below. For most of them, we get a little referral when/if you purchase.
- 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)!
