I’ve been excited about this podcast for a while, simply because our guest is Bob Beard.
Bob is the local PBS station’s official Nerd-In-Chief (seriously), he runs the annual Nerd Walk, writes the geek culture section of Phoenix New Times, loves The Ghostbusters, and is slowly-but-surely writing a thesis on authenticity within nerd culture.
Plus he’s hilarious.
