How can one word change our entire perception of the animal kingdom? Or at least our laws? NW NERD podcast talks anthropology in court. Also, how many Game of Thrones spinoffs can there possibly be? And the internet just got hit with a bevy of trailers that will continue to make 2017 the year of nerd films.

This week's feature is on the Northwest mermaid community and how diverse it is.

Also, the Seattle Bike Blog’s Tom Fucoloro explains how Seattle is about to see thousands of smart bikes loaded with tech rolling into town.

Finally, (spoiler warning) the guys review "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (Did we mention spoilers?).
