NW NERD, voted Seattle's best local podcast, covers nerdy news, people, and events. Whether they're going behind the scenes with Seattle Police's Twitch channel, diving into the PNW's mermaid scene, or breaking down the latest Marvel movie, hosts Nick Jarin and Dyer Oxley geek out with in-depth, original reporting and thoughtful discussion.

The show is presented in seasons. Episodes alternate between a ‘magazine’ style with a feature story and headline news discussion and a ‘spotlight’ style, which centers on an interview.

While we're from the Northwest -- among the nerdiest regions on the planet -- this podcast can be listened to from anywhere. 

Who are these nerds?

Nick lives in Seattle, Washington. He first realized he was a nerd when he spent an entire party reading a cousin’s encyclopedia about the X-Men.

Dyer is a journalist who has lived throughout the Northwest. He first realized he was a nerd when the most exciting thing in his life was that he got a new bottle of typewriter oil for his cherished Smith-Corona. There were probably other signs before that.
