Today on the show we look into the rise of nerds and nerd culture. Comic books are something that have long been seen as nerdy, but in the past few decades, they have been more and more accepted in to the main stream and even academia. We also hear from a speaker at this year’s TEDx MSU, and how he sees the fine art in video game design. To finish off the show, we look to the short, but significant history of an old board game, Dungeons and Dragons.
