My podcast explores entertainment culture (nerd, pop, ect),self improvement and philosophy with a touch of whimsy and humor.


  • Seating audition (I'm not last chair but I'm still playing second.  I need to practice more,)
  • Nerdist Live & Smodcast live
  • Art House review: It is a fun movie.  If you are a fan of Chris Hardwick you'll want this movie.  If you are a fan girlfan boy you NEED this movie.  
  • Zombies vs. Gladiators: I want to live in a world where this movie is a thing!!!  I will start reading from this awesome script next show.
  • The ending song for the show is Shadow Rituals All-State Concert Band.  It was the song for my seating audition.

Thank you for reading/listening!

I wonder if I should call this the "I'm not Chris Hardwick's fan girl even though every podcast mentions Nerdist in some form or another."  But seriously, I have lots of fun talking about things.  I talk about the suprising number of downloads. 


There will be at the min of two more Nerdist Live shows.  


Fun Fact:  It's really Jonah that I'm after until being his fan girl became too mainstream.  ;-)

SaxyNerdist (New nickname?) heads to DC.  Yes it was my 4th live Nerdist Podcast.  I give a quick review of the show.  Lesson from the show: Chris IS half Italian and you should not piss him off.  Seriously.  Don't do it.  

 I give shout outs and do a 10 min quemment.  

If you like the quemment then pass it over to the Nerdist.

Still  have the plague, I think it is related to the construction in the library.  My lungs are weak and frail.  *sigh*

I'm off to Germany.

I have a week. Not much happened.....I am a top nerd on the Node.  I'm in good company! 

I'm working on my quemment for the Live Nerdist show in DC.  It has the potential to be awesome.  If I deliver it right it could be really powerful and awesome.

A great group of Nerdist!

In this episode I talk about how I humble bragged!  Albert Brooks was gracious enough to reply to my tweet and wished Chris Hardwick a happy birthday.  This is the LAST time I'm mentioning it.  I swear/promise!  

I talk about the live show.  It was awesome! I got home at 1am but it was totally worth it.

Gladstone now follows me on twitter.  I have a feeling he won't be if he ever listens to this podcast. 

New ideas for segments:

1) A verse and a chorus...i sing a verse and a chorus of my favorite songs.  I love singing and this is a way to help me find my voice....

2) Bad Acting Theater.  I read from a script posted on Amazon script.  I am looking at Gladiators vs. Zombies.  This movie needs to be made.

Chris Hardwick had a birthday.  I did stuff.  Was it epic?  Probably not in the big picture of the universe or Mr. Hardwick's life but everyone learned an important lesson and grew as a result.


I did a video too:


Thanks for listening!

Listen to me babble on about my week and the newest social networking site 

It is currently in beta but shows a great deal of promise as well as the ability to chew up time.

Music is Tim Mnchin's Not Perfect.  Much like that title this song is less than perfection.  Who needs perfection when you got heart right?  Mmmm.....

I wrote the lyrics and sang the song.  I'm not sure it was one of my better ideas.  While I love singing I'm not sure others love hearing it.  




This is the Nerdist

It is a community

fulled with nice and creative people

It was started by a guy who

hosted a show called singled out

and now he #humblebrags about that hair


And here's the really weid part

It was really simple at the start 

but now it is a global phenomena

This is the Nerdist

and its fine

it's where we spend the vast majroity of our (free) time

it's  not perfect but it's ours
