Television has helped shape our society for over 60 years. This week, we talk about what is arguably the first national television network, and it’s not NBC. Join us as we discuss the influence and the lost legacy of the forgotten network.
This week, Eric and Bryan kick off a month-long dedication to all things related to Halloween with a episode focused on the history and cultural perceptions behind witchcraft. We hope enjoy as much as we did recording it!

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!
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.
