For our thirtieth episode, Eric and Bryan decide to add overlooked snippets to their previous episodes, with a very special guest. Enjoy!
Those who know me (and some who don’t) know that the Academy Awards is the one annual ritual in which I hold the same level of esteem as religious events like Easter, Christmas, and watching a Batman or Superman movie. Ever since I was a kid, the Oscars were an event that I simply couldn’t “take or leave.” Would you “take or leave” your grandmother? Favorite uncle? First born child?

Google is very good at many things. Web browsing, email, a wide variety other web services, and perhaps most impressive are apps. Recently Google released something truly awesome, Field Trip. What make this so unique and worthy of my praise you ask?
For starters, people like me who tend to have a general idea of what they want, but also tend to be indecisive, enjoy things that do half the work for us. Field Trip shows you a map of the area and highlights any interesting or historical landmarks including unique architecture, plus any Museums or Art Galleries nearby. When I travel, I often spend hours researching what’s worth visiting in the area, and while it’s easy to find the well-known locations, I prefer the path less traveled. Luckily, Field Trip shows you everything! I mean everything!
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?
