Nerd News Network-Episode 62


Wow, pardon our dust as we come back into studio after an unexpected hiatus.

Allow me to start off this post by saying that this first half of the show does absolutely get serious in relation to a news item that happened prior to airtime. I fully invite you to have a civil discussion with me at or on twitter @Birdmandodd regarding the incident in Boston involving the Pokemon world championship. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about the rest of the show.
Mike “The Birdman” Dodd hits up some of the news that has happened in the last week from the heat wave that temporarily halted TWiG production. We talk about a law suit involving Duke Nukem and what happened there, a medical advance so cool it maybe “A-HEAD” of it’s time and finally we also talk about the state of space program and funding.
So join us for some seriousness, nerdity and more!

Birdman was born on October 20th 1981 and has been here there and everywhere, traveling across Canada and the USA as often as he can. However he calls Owen Sound,Ontario,Canada home for the most part, despite it being similar to Mos Eisley Spaceport. Grew up in the sticks of mid western Ontario and usually found absorbing data from all sorts of different sources, video games, movies and occasionally pirated TV. However it wasn’t till Mike heard the voice from the Kingdom of Nye, Art Bell that he knew he found something interesting and kept an ear to the world of radio broadcasting. Years later when the time finally came to get it together and head off to college, Mike choose the world of Television production from his experience of Rogers television as a technical producer but that would not last as his career choice. A chance encounter with an individual named Steve Saylor changed his future once and for all and the rest they say is History….
