The Nerd Degree: Friends

I had a kind of grunty cold at the time we were recording this and made goddamn heroic efforts not to cough into the mic during this episode and where’s my medal? But heroic efforts aside, yes, my Friends fan-fiction basically grew out of a desire for someone to clean my house… for free. What […]

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?

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!
