Nerd Hurdles #31 - Three Weddings and a Funeral School Drop-out

September 18th, 2009

There's nothing like a wedding to bring out the obsessive compulsive disorder in a person. The most devout Star Trek nerd doesn't hold a candle to the average bridezilla when it comes to nit-picking details. Imagine if the two combined. A bridezilla at the helm of a Trek themed wedding might cause a rift in space/time continuum. Jakob and Mandi discuss the various nerd hurdles surround the happiest day of your life.

Nerd Hurdles #29 - Video Games

August 21st, 2009

WoW! People get really obsessed with video games. Sometimes they even die for their obsession. Some people rock out with toy guitars, some people make coloured blocks fit together, and some make racial stereotypes hop over turtles. The thing all these people have in common is they're NERDS.  Jakob and Mandi play with the topic of video games and mow the grass of a drugs podcast called Hooked.

Nerd Hurdles #28 - The Nerds Are Alive with the Sound of Hurdles

August 14th, 2009

Jakob and Mandi scratch the surface of musical nerd hurdles (good thing it's a podcast and not a CD!). They cover musicals and comedic singers mostly. They don't even mention prog and spacerock so there might have to be sophomore effort.

Nerd Hurdles #27 - Naked Lynch

July 29th, 2009

David freaking Lynch. Not for everyone. Jakob and Mandi love him so much they made a Twin Peaks cake. You can see the results of their "casting game" at The Hurdled Nerd Blog. If you don't understand David Lynch is a whole other level of awesome, you should tell them why at the Nerd Hurdles forum.

Nerd Hurdles #24 - Sculder and Mully

July 8th, 2009

Jakob would like to apologize for being hungover. He was abducted by a booze pusher named Mandi. He gruffly slurs his way through an episode on The X Files. The truth is in this podcast. Even if they neglect to mention nerd heroes The Lone Gunmen.

Nerd Hurdles #23 - Pride and Prejudice

July 1st, 2009

Running of the Dykes is a prideful annual event in Toronto and Jakob and Mandi went and watched them. Then they got drunk at the beer garden and podcasted about Pride in general.
