WBKE - Episode 12: Nerd Culture Part 2

EDIT: Hey guys, evidently I blew it. This episode required some tricky editing, and as a result, we refer to something at the end of the episode seemingly out of no where. We had been discussing how a man in Taipei died in an internet cafe, and no one noticed for hours. So for background info, check out the article here to have some idea what we're talking about: Gamers Ignore Corpse in Internet Cafe. Now, I obviously could go back and edit the references we make out of the episode, but it's not that big a deal.  Just know that we had been talking about how nerds get too invested in things. It's insane that this guy died sitting in a chair in front of a computer. Also, Bobby asks how this is possible, since the guy died after just 10 hours of sitting. He asked why being immobile for a long time evidently kills you. Wouldn't people die in their sleep every night? I made the hilarious joke that when it's recommended you get 8 hours of sleep a night, 8 hours isn't the minimum...It's the maximum! "You gotta get outta that bed, baby!"

Man, I should have left all that in, that's hilarious. I'm hilarious.

Anyway:

This week, Bobby and I are joined again by Michael Costa and Matt Battaglia to have another conversation about a whole bunch of nerdy bullshit. We might actually be nerdier in this one.

This episode has it all: The Walking Dead, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and a renewed debate over which one of us is the nerdiest. The decision is honestly pretty surprising.

We also talk about the concept of saying "well the book is better than the movie."

WBKE - Episode 11: Nerd Culture Part 1

This week on Will and Bobby Know Everything, our good friend Matt Battaglia joins us to discuss nerd culture, and eventually, which one of us is the nerdiest. It's a pretty fast paced episode, where we furiously debate whether or not these franchises suck:

The Walking Dead, Comic Book Men, Star Wars, and Harry Potter.

We each also admit something that we are embarrassed about, and shockingly, Bobby has a shit ton of them.

Also, Bobby tells some insanely fascinating stories, one about a friend, and one about himself, and I'm kicking myself for not asking him more questions about them!

This episode is crazy, it's fun, it's fast paced, and we cover almost everything. ALMOST! There will be a Part Two next week with Mike Costa added to the conversation!
