For all of you who tune in weekly for the Nerd Fu podcast, I have bad news. There was a technical malfunction somewhere along the line and one of the mics did not record properly. What’s worse, we had our very first guest in studio – Cousin Chris! Not to mention, this was our big THOR-centric episode, with tons of great information and fun.
We’re a little sick to our stomachs over the error this week, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t bring you a recap of the latest in nerd news, so here it is – in written form. You’ll just have to insert your own #Segways and #Shimmys. 🙁
