the stories that make us nerds

NW Nerd is a podcast with feature stories on geeky interests, as well as talk on current and past issues within fandom and pop culture. 

Minisode - The Cuts (Season 1)

Not everything Nick and Dyer records makes it into the NW NERD podcast. Sometimes there's an interview that doesn't get into an episode, or even just portions of an interview that didn't fit into a feature. Maybe even a bit that didn't quite work out. But they're still great to listen to. These are the cuts.

For better or for worse, these are a few such cuts from Season 1 of NW NERD.
