The Nerd Degree: Lies

If ever there was an episode during which you had carte blanche to make stuff up, this would be it. In the introduction we had to state a lie that we had told and even though I shouldn’t be, I am somewhat proud of the outrageous lie that I told my 3 year old. BAD […]

The Nerd Degree: Time Travel

First off, I was super happy with the team name Jeff Clark came up with for us in this episode, “Wibbly wobbly, teamy-weamy thing”. Effing genius.

Art Wars

Years ago, (2012 if we’re being exact) before I had a child, I had a bunch of free time on my hands and spent some of it scrolling through the online collection of Christchurch Art Gallery.

The Nerd Degree: Fairy tales

Fun fact. I was not supposed to be in this Nerd Degree episode about fairy tales. I was supposed to be sitting in the audience, sipping my beer having a nice relaxing time but then they needed a score-keeper and no one else was available so I did it.

The Nerd Degree: Brains ajar

This episode was about brains but that does not in any way make it cerebral. I somehow have managed to yet again mention what used to euphemistically be known as “marital aids”. How does this keep happening to me? I’m starting to think it’s not a coincidence.

The Nerd Degree: Heart of Dorkness

Just in time for Valentines Day, it’s the love-themed episode of everyone’s favourite “pop culture quiz show that’s recorded at Orange Studios”, The Nerd Degree. This episode is notable for me reading a poem I wrote about my first celebrity crush, Kirk Cameron.

The Nerd Degree: Star Wars Special II

Yet again I pretended to know more about a topic than I do and got to mix it with the nerds on another panel-quiz-podcast sesh of the Nerd Degree. Full disclosure – I may have bribed my way onto the show with the promise of cookies. Yes, actual cookies. See?

The Nerd Degree: Bite Night

Ha ha! I pretended to know more about vampires than I really do and they let me be on an episode of The Nerd Degree. Suckers! This episode includes unfortunate technical difficulties but not before I get in a dildo joke. Enjoy!

How not to talk to me about racism

Facebook. It giveth with one hand, it taketh with the other. On the one hand I can easily glom* onto already organised toddler gatherings with the greatest of ease and share pics of my kid with his whanau, on the other hand I get an insight into the mindset and politics of people whom I […]

Mappelgangers: Christchurch and Pawnee

I’ve written before about the thoroughly delightful fact that the street maps for Pawnee used in Parks and Recreation were based off a map of my very own hometown Christchurch. So I was pretty thrilled to be able to dig up some facts about how that came to be for an article on The Spinoff.
