Four years ago, the Nerd Lunch Podcast with CT, Pax, and Jeeg was born, and in that time, has cultivated a large community of bloggers, podcasters, and pop culture fans. Whenever a new guest appears in the fourth chair, I always check them out (after they dropped their thing in the thing), and follow them on their various social media accounts. There’s a great camaraderie between those of us who create blog posts and podcasts, and the Nerd Lunch podcast is kind of a touchstone of which many of us can claim a share. I’m honored to sport the Nerd Lunch gang patch on my leather biker vest. (God, can you imagine the number of beatings if that was real? Now, I’m picturing Jeeg and Lorenzo Lamas walking into the SAMCRO clubhouse with full Nerd Lunch back tattoos. But I digress.)
I had the honor to sit in their fourth chair a couple of times, and have never missed listening to an episode, even the ones about Star Trek. In my personal life, I can count on no hands the number of friends and family members with whom I can talk at length about random nerdy things. The Nerd Lunch podcast has filled that void and has been my regular pop culture fix. I often find myself mentally contributing to their conversations — they can hear me, right? — because their topics hit me at the core, and their demeanor is so approachable?
I know that many of the readers of this site are already riding on the Nerd Lunch bandwagon, but if you haven’t checked them out, give them a listen — you won’t regret it.
CT, Pax, and Jeeg — congratulations on reaching this huge milestone — Kaplop! (Is that right? That can’t be right.) Anyway, I look forward to the next 200!
