Special: The Rose City Sampler
When this special podcast is released, Nick and Dyer will be in Portland, tending to the NW NERD booth at Rose City Comic Con. This Rose City Sampler is for all the fine folks we meet in Portland, to provide a sample of what NW NERD does and the stories we cover.
These particular features all have an Oregon nexus. We profile the Nerd Out in Portland, which boasts making the best (Spider) Manhattan in town; we then go on a search for the real Springfield of Simpsons fame; a quick stop out on the coast for some film history; and finally, a spooky story about an old hotel where guests and employees have documented their eerie experiences.
