An Endorsement, For All Intents and Purposes

by

We don’t have to dive too deeply into Nerdhole’s extensive market research to assume that most of those reading this are into nerd culture and podcasts, and the rest of you are search engine spiders. So if you’ve got a little extra time in your week, you should check out A Podcast, For All Intents and Purposes. Hosted by “two co-dependent, overeducated nerds,” every show is smart and funny and charming. We occasionally host trivia nights at Raygun Lounge with Andrew, one of the APFAIAP boys, and it’s always good fun to watch him strike his trademark balance between bemused and curmudgeonly.

Andrew is an attorney, and their recent podcast on a legal struggle between Wizards of the Coast and their volunteer Magic: the Gathering tournament judges was fascinating and well explained*. We also enjoyed listening to their alternative take on Fallout 4 (Andrew is agnostic, while D. didn’t care for it so much). Lately they’ve been producing shorter episodes because Andrew has been dealing with a move, but they’re edging up on episode 100 and they’ve promised something special. We can’t wait!

* Rob pitched Andrew on a podcast focused entirely on geeky legal/policy issues. Turns out there already is one, but surely there’s room for more?

Episode 19 – Agent Carter

by

agent-carter-tv-show-poster-01-horizontalMarvel’s Agent Carter on ABC just wrapped up its 8-episode engagement—tucked in between the two halves of Season 2 of Agents of SHIELD—and we took some time to explore its many virtues. Rob and Mary spoil the season ending for Paul, so if you haven’t caught up yet, you may want to do so first. We’ll wait—and it’s definitely worth your time!

For once, Rob was right about something: Hayley Atwell did indeed appear on Agents of SHIELD in a couple of flashbacks. To balance things out, he was wrong-o about Leviathan’s relationship to HYDRA. Turns out the former is all about the Soviets, while everybody knows HYDRA is just a Nazi rebrand. He regrets the error AGAIN.
