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!
Some members of our fantastic Nerdonomy team, namely Sarah and Sean, came up with some brilliant ideas of celebrating some great actors and directors by turning their film career into a viewing marathon! To make matters even more heavenly, they found a way to add the actor/director’s name into the name of a month, which dictated when the marathon would happen. Sarah came up with Mel Brooks-uary (January) and Sean came up with Denzel March-ington (March). I recently came up with a marathon idea of my own and as the title spoils, I am going to start a tradition of James NovemBond!
Every culture has so many attributes in common. One of them is drinking. We, as nerd historians, felt obligated to share a brief, but insight look into the history of alcohol.

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.
