Episode 46 – Live at No Brand Con 2015

This is the weirdest episode we’ve ever done in the history of Nerd & Tie. I’m serious – we’ve never been this strange before, and likely never will again. This episode was recorded live at No Brand Con 2015 in Eau Claire, WI.

The final No Brand Con in Eau Claire in fact.

Our biggest story is No Brand Con’s announcement they’re moving to the Wisconsin Dells in 2016 (and this dominates a pretty huge part of the episode – including a live Q&A with the audience since two of us are former staffers of this event), but we also talk about Iceman’s sexuality in Marvel’s main comic universe as well as the Galaxy Quest TV adaptation.

And then we start reading your letters and things get weird.

Who am I kidding, they were weird long before we got there. This episode is also called what happens when we decided to get Pher drunk before recording the podcast and give the audience a microphone.

Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
