Rated NA 85: Keepin’ It Real -w- Ashly Burch

Is there room on the Rated NA podcast for two nerds named Ash?  We’re joined on this week’s episode of Rated NA by writer, actress, and all around creative whirlwind, Ashly Burch.  Ashly and her brother Anthony are the masterminds behind the incredibly hilarious comedy series Hey Ash Whatcha’ Playin? (HAWP).  If web comedy isn’t your thing,  Ashly also voiced everyone’s favorite 13 year old explosive expert Tiny Tina in Borderlands 2!  We were lucky enough to have Ash on for the entire episode and ended up gushing for hours about Mass Effect, The Walking Dead, XCOM and more..  Oh yeah, we also got around to reading your listener responses to this week’s NAQOTW.

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.
  • Great podcast guys and girls!! But damn you all for giving me watery eyes on the way to work today as I was listening to the Family Moments NAQoTW responses and Matt (I think it was) for bringing up Toy Story 3. Mine wasn’t the furnace scene, though that was pretty heart wrenching.

    I know none of you have kids, but try to get this. Imagine if you will, I’m sitting in the theatre with my 5 and 3 year old boys and we’ve gotten through the furnace scene with only them both being a little scared…to get to the end of the movie when Andy is handing over the toys to the little girl, he gets to Buzz and (especially) Woody, that killed me. I’m sitting there remembering the same thing from when I was a kid, and that my boys will go through the same thing, jeez…eyes were tearing up so bad.

      Thanks so much for listening! Hopefully just just pounded your chest and acted macho. 🙂

      • Did it stealth like, haha.

        And listening, my pleasure I assure you. You guys do a great job every week – from telling us what you’ve been doing, your guests (please get Ali Hillis back on – I need to find the podcast you already had her on), all the game/movie/tv etc news and info. And generally just sharing (at least some) part of your lives with us listeners each week.,

        Cheers.

        PS – Wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too 😉
