Episode 120 – The Breaking Point

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, first we tackle the #ChangeTheChannel situation surrounding Channel Awesome, and follow it up with people in Nazi uniforms showing up at conventions (most recently Anime Matsuri).

Then we hit the big topic for the episode: when do you give up on a long running series you’ve been following? What makes you stop watching or reading? At what point do you write it off?

It’s a tough call to make, but sometimes you have to.

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.”
