One thing that we have in common with our ancestors is that at some point, we looked up at the stars in awe. In this episode, we discuss the recent Curiosity probe, and our historical perception of Mars. Listen, subscribe, and follow us on Facebook, or Twitter @Nerdonomy!
While Eric is on Break, Nerdonomy regular Dave McGuire shares the history of screenwriting with Bryan, as well as talking about the process of storytelling.

If you are a regular listener to the podcasts (www.nerdonomy.com) then you may have heard us drop a few references to the nerdonomy home game. Well this game hasn’t really existed…
UNTIL NOW! (Did you guys just get excited? Because I know I did…)
So here’s the game:
The Setup: First subscribe to the podcasts, and tell your friends about it. Pick a friend or two to play with when a new episode comes out, and pick a Nerd to represent you! You earn points based on what your Nerd does during the podcast. For instance, if I’m listening to an episode of Nerds on History, I can pick Eric and someone else can pick Bryan. If one of the other Nerds is guest hosting on the show, like Kevin, then a third person may join, or those points can go to both players.
Nerds on History
Episode No. 69 — The Complete Package
Eric and Bryan welcome author and historian Maureen Ogle onto the show to talk about her new book In Meat We Trust: An Unexpected History of Carnivore America. Listen as they explore a unique perspective on the history of food in America.
Eric and Bryan were thrilled to welcome Maureen Ogle, who also happens to be the first guest on Nerds on History who has a Ph.D. As we discussed her book, we got to dive into the history of the United States from an rarely explored angle: the food we we eat, and how it came to be that way. The single resonating question that drove all of Maureen’s research was “what does it mean to be an American?” As you listen, I think you’ll find that we come up with some pretty good ideas that help answer that.
