A positive review for a great show
Both of these gents clearly know their way around nerd territory. This podcast is clever and quick with insightful content. I can't recommend it more.
Clever and funny
I thought I was a nerd, but then I listened to NW nerd. Very entertaining, but also informative; there is some cool history about nerd-dom in the Northwest here.
In this first episode, they jump from subject-to-subject a bit, but that also means there's something for everyone (everything from Star Wars to Pokemon Go).
As a middle-ground nerd, I had a great time with the high-level nerdage here, and would say NW nerd is a podcast that can be enjoyed by both dabblers and expert nerds.
My new favorite podcast
The NW-Nerd creators really know their stuff! Their podcast touches on relevant issues that both nerds and non-nerds easy/casual CDs and learn from. The sound quality is perfect, and the casual connection between the two NW-N hosts bodes well for the podcast's overall feel. I can't wait to hear more!
