Episode 42: The Meaning of Nerd


On this week's show, Brendan, Spindles and Ady chew over the thorny issue that is this year's Hugo nominations. For those of you that are unaware of the controversy around this year's awards, we give a brief run down of what has transpired and mull over what can be done about it in both the short and long term.

We also report back on this year's Eastercon, highlight some current kickstarter campaigns in Crowdfunder Corner and chat over what we are looking forward to in the coming weeks.

Congratulations to Oxgoth on his winning entry to our Warcraft competition, your prize is winging it's way to you as we speak. Our next show will bear the winning title of Invasion of the Nerd Snatchers.
