This week, Eric and Bryan discussing the fascinating history behind magic, from shamans all the way up to Penn & Teller and beyond. This one is definitely not to be missed. Enjoy!
Eric and Bryan welcome their first spectators into the Nerdcave, as well as Nerds on Film co-host Sarah Ashley, to wrap up their month of Christmas themed episodes by talking about one of most popular Christmas stories of all time. Merry Christmas!

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).
If you are a regular listener to the podcasts (www.nerdonomy.com) then you may have heard us drop a few references to the nerdonomy home game. Well this game hasn’t really existed…
UNTIL NOW! (Did you guys just get excited? Because I know I did…)
So here’s the game:
The Setup: First subscribe to the podcasts, and tell your friends about it. Pick a friend or two to play with when a new episode comes out, and pick a Nerd to represent you! You earn points based on what your Nerd does during the podcast. For instance, if I’m listening to an episode of Nerds on History, I can pick Eric and someone else can pick Bryan. If one of the other Nerds is guest hosting on the show, like Kevin, then a third person may join, or those points can go to both players.
Finally, Eric and Bryan conclude (for now) their discussion on Rome, with an emphasis on the Emperors from Augustus through the Byzantines. Featuring Special Guest Dan Lazarus, a.k.a. The Lazarus Man. Enjoy!
