For those awaiting Et Tu, Goofy Part II, it will be coming in a couple of weeks (for good reason)! In the mean time, Eric and Bryan change things up and discuss this week in history. Enjoy!
Anthropology is both a fascinating, and controversial topic. This week, join Eric and Bryan as they welcome anthropologist Katherine Schaefers as their guest.
One of our listeners sent us this picture. She was driving home and when she got out of the car and saw our little friend. We’re thinking of doing an episode of Nerds on History about the history of suicidal birds. If not that, it will make for a great conversation starter on a Hitchcock themed episode of Nerds on Film. What do you Nerdonomy fans think?

When we were all children, we had dreams. Some kids promise that when they grow up, they will become astronauts. Some kids even innocently swear they will become dinosaurs upon adulthood. Me? I wanted to be Batman. Even other 4 to 5-year-olds laughed at this concept. And yet, I was not deterred. Of course, even at 4 years old, I was a rational individual who understood it would take millions of dollars, and virtually limitless resources, but even more importantly, the right amount of know-how.
As the title suggests, this week Eric and Bryan discuss the history, etymology and culture evolution behind one of the most famous Halloween-related creatures ever: the vampire. Enjoy!
