Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films and tv, pho, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Wii U gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Game of all time? Maybe System Shock 2. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.
Amy Acker returns to the show this week for a fun conversation with Ash and Matt about Much Ado About Nothing, Person of Interest, pickling, food, and other curious topics. Scott joins the group to talk about the trailers from the VGX, The Punk Singer, and the NAFFL.
Ahhh 75 episodes of Rated NA! This week the gang welcomes Patrick Weekes, writer on the Mass Effect series, to talk about his craft and his new book, The Palace Job. We also briefly reflect on our wild work weeks and Hilary gushes about her love of Starbuck from Battlestar. Oh yeah, we also had Patrick answer a number of your listener questions as well.
