This week we look at one of history’s most taboo topics: Cannibalism and Human Sacrifice. WARNING: EPISODE CONTAINS VERY GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS. Listen, subscribe, and follow us on Facebook, or Twitter @Nerdonomy!
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!

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.
There is a shift happening, people! Can you feel it? We, as the general viewing audience, are seeing our film comedies transition from plain dick and fart jokes, to thought provoking, enlightening, and obscure films. We aren’t seeing people pretend they are zits; they are going into a discussion of why are they are getting zits and how that makes them feel! It’s a shift that is happening before our very eyes and it’s at times appalling! Who can we blame, good friends? Who is asking us to laugh and think!? Thy enemy’s name is Judd Apatow!
