Rated NA 100: Victory

Rated_NA_100

Episode 100 ! What else is there to say? I couldn’t be more proud of how far we’ve come, more astonished that people listen… and continue to listen, and more energized for what we’ve yet to create. We forego the usual shenanigans to answer your questions about everything and anything Nerd Appropriate, and look back at the last 100 episodes. Also, in our NAQOTW, your responses to our signature question (we answer it too). Thank you for all of your tweets, likes, comments, and continued support, it means more to us than we can ever express in words.

Scott

Hi, Iā€™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.

    Scott’s tender meat. Oh you guys. Of course this is the only thing I got from the podcast, right? Or something about getting it up. Hmm….

    I was really happy when you joined the podcast, Hilary šŸ™‚ Er, am still happy about it I mean!

    Your research just sounds soooo coool, Scott. You’re setting up to be a tragic character in a video game whose back story we gradually learn about, fighting through an army of intelligent robots.

    • It wouldn’t be Rated NA if you weren’t left with a terrible pun of some sort.

      I’m just trying to close the gap between humans and robots… you know, so that Robopocalypse doesn’t happen.

      And is it ok if we do an 80’s or 90’s style rap about nerdery? I feel like a hoedown just isn’t in our wheelhouse.

      • Fluidfyre

        So do you sympathize pretty heavily about EDI/Joker’s romance?

        Wellllll the rap would work, but we’d need pics of your four in appropriate attire.

    Congratulations everyone! Hope you guys are around for another 100.

      See you in Seattle!

    we’ve referenced this a bunch so I’m posting it here. Warning, some pretty serious adult language……………..in 5, 4, 3……

  • Congrats again! Another fun episode that made for a more enjoyable crosstown commute.

      Thank you Carlo for sticking with us!

    Happy anniversary! Thank you for all podcasts. I’m not able to listen to them all (offline .mp3s for traveling needed! :D) but you’re only audio show I keep track of.

    Your enthusiasm and pleasantness are really contagious. I used to be more or less serious about games and my other nerdy hobbies however NA was a part of realization I should concentrate on what makes me to like them in first place instead of being absorbed in analyzing issues. These creations are awesome and there are never enough positive words describing what people behind them give us, or just me.

    I look forward to listen what you have up your sleeve ;).

      Rinu,

      Thank you SO much for this thoughtful reply. We do our best to leave our baggage at the door when we record.

      In terms of what we have up our sleeves… We can’t wait to share when the time is right.

      Again, thank you very much for hanging in there and listening to our show!
