Eric and Bryan welcome back Eric’s wife Martha then to finish their (brief) history of Mexico. Enjoy!
Given the season, we could not go through October without devoting episode to a Halloween icon: the mummy. We also discuss how mummification has evolved throughout the centuries. Listen, subscribe, and follow us on Facebook, or Twitter @Nerdonomy!
Here we are again, Valentine’s Day, or less that affectionately known to others as singles awareness day. Today is a time for many to celebrate love, but for this nerdy girl, I see it as a time to celebrate chocolate, with the perk of seeing nerdy themed valentines (like these, these, and this).
Now it may not come as a surprise to some of you, but I’ve never been one to really get into celebrating this holiday. I have plenty of cynical and deeply personal reasons for this, but one thing is that I don’t quite understand the point of spending money lame hallmark cards that don’t quite come from the heart,when there are better options (see nerdy valentines above).
Okay, I’ll be the first to admit it; I spend too much money on comics. It’s not my fault, really. They are just so fun to read and those price tags only say 2.99. With my iPad, I’ve gotten even worse. Instead of facing the register $25 total, I just buy them all via Comixology and only see a $6 receipt from iTunes every few days. My girlfriend saw my reading list last night and asked just how many series I am reading. It was hard to come up with a total; there are just so many each week. Well it’s time to come out of the shadows. I shall proudly stand up for the comics I love, and, who knows, maybe you can give them a try too, but watch that iTunes bill.
