Eric Bricmont was sadly unable to attend this recording. However, in his absence, Bryan and Sarah do a great job of succinctly discussing the commercialization of Christmas, and its deep ties to the holiday itself.
This week we have something very special for our listeners, a two-part crossover! Listen as Nerds on History co-host Eric Bricmont helps us discuss Thanksgiving in film. Listen to Part I in the Nerds on History podcast. Listen, subscribe, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook, and follow us on twitter @Nerdonomy!
With that start of November being All-Saint’s Day and El Dia de Los Muertos, Eric and Bryan felt obliged to follow-thru on listener feedback and devote an episode to Catholic saints. We hope you enjoy it!

As it is Martin Luther King Day, Eric and Bryan discuss the impact and timeline of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, as well as other Civil Rights movements around the globe. Enjoy, and don’t forget to like our page on Facebook, as well as check out our new blog on Tumblr!
While dissecting A Christmas Story, The Nerds get a visit from Nerds on History’s own Eric Bricmont whose mid episode tangent may very well be a cinema goldmine.
