Nerd & Tie Welcomes Our Newest Team Member – Gen Prock!

Many of you know that Pher Sturz has stepped down from Nerd & Tie (Episode 89 was his final installment of the podcast). While we’re sad to see him leave the team, we’re happy to welcome the person who will be filling his seat on the show. That person, of course, is Gen Prock.

Gen has guest hosted the show on a couple of episodes in the past, and we’re super happy to have her on board. Gen has a long history in the convention scene, having been a long time staffer of No Brand Con as well as selling her art at events under her studio name “Ocelotdude Designs.”

She made it very clear to us that we should mention her love of sweaters, ice cream and ocelots. She also made it clear that we should not allege that she sneaks off into the night in a cape and cowl, fighting crime in a city that society has failed. Gen says that is totally not a thing that is happening, and that we should stop running up to strangers on the street declaring “THERE GOES THE DARK GUARDIAN OF OUR CITY!” while pointing at her.

You can find on twitter at @ocelotdude, and her work is for sale on her Etsy and Society 6 stores.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
