Nerd Hurdles is a podcast. Chances are if you’re here, you know that already. But just in case you got sent here by Google or a link sent to you by someone in your office, Nerd Hurdles is a podcast about things nerds like. Things that regular people (”normals”) scoff at or outright shun. We discuss these things in a generally humorous and vaguely intelligent way. Or is that intelligible? It might be neither intelligent nor intelligible. Jakob and Mandi discuss all manner and forms of nerdery and geekery and what makes them magnificent and tragic. This weekly epic explored the depths of what fandoms mean to their fans. Sacred cows of the scifi, fantasy, comic book and any other genre that makes the general public squirm with discomfort get the irreverent Nerd Hurdles treatment (and nerdy love).

Customer Reviews

Calling This Nerdles Just To Winde Mandi Up!

Sorry for that Mandi. This is a fandabulous look at all things nerdy. So nerdy that you look at the hurdle it presents and think "I don't know if it's worth it!" Well, get a pair of experts opinion on whether the Nerd Hurdle is worth tackling...then go away and make your own mind up! Fantastic podcast, great humour and very funny. ori-STUDFARM gives it 2 thumbs up...but only because he only has 2 thumbs. I'd reward more if I could!


I have a weird love hate relationship with this show. I love the banter and sense of humour of the hosts, but I sometimes hate what they say about certain subjects and genres. Then, I remember its all just opinions, and my friends and I do the same thing about mainstream media. They get things horribly wrong at times, but its easy to forgive them and come back for another dose.

Just listen to it.

You'll know before long if it's your cup of tea. I happen to think this podcast is made almost entirely out of awesomness.
