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.
We get together at the end of a long week to bring you the latest from Microsoft, Comic Con, and upcoming games. We review Lollipop Chainsaw, Spirit Camera, Uber Cab, and in-progress talk about Kingdoms of Amalur and Hunger Games. Finally, we talk about Dads on this Father’s Day edition podcast.
Miellyn Barrows stops by for the usual shenanigans as we look forward to PAX East. Assassin’s Creed has gone pirate, Mass Effect gets a Reckoning, Dead Space 3 gets spoilery, and The Bridge melts minds. Finally, you tell us your essential items for a plague free convention season in our NAQOTW. Ahoy!
Jessica Merizan stops by to talk about community management at BioWare, Crabcat Industries, Try This At Home on Nerdist, and… tomahawks?! We also discuss the latest from the Marvel movie circuit and the announcement that JJ Abrams is directing Star Wars VII. Finally, you talk community events with us in our NAQOTW. So throw your keys in the bowl, sit back, and relax.
