Season 4 Episode 29 :: October Adventures – Moogfest and GMX ’11

Posted by NerdyShow on November 9, 2011

October-festi-con-ventures! Cap, Hex, Colin, and Luke get together to talk about young-but-feisty festivals and other assorted nerdery from the always-busy month of October. Cap went to Asheville, NC to the amazing Moogfest and reports back on fascinating talks from Brian Eno and many other mad-scientist musician types.  Meanwhile, Colin and Luke come back from GMX (Geek media Expo) ’11 with food poisoning and a Reboot button, but also lots of love for the burgeoning Nashville Expo and a special Portal-related treat YOU CAN ONLY HEAR HERE (…and also on YouTube).

We also discuss the dramatic, complex world of donation drives, ongoing adventures on the forums, the newly christened Roosevelt Nuker, and how you guys are about to get SO MANY MICROSODES. Huzzah! Big words formed from smaller words smashed together! Botulism!

    From listening to this episode I get the feeling that at least some of The Nerdy Show are aware of its existence already, but as a public service announcement to my fellow listeners:

    Go listen to Radiolab at Period.

    (Especially if you were interested in the hive mind intelligence/ox weighing subject. They have an episode called “Emergence” that deals specifically with that topic.)

    My family owned sugar gliders for many years when I was growing up. They can definitely be smelly pissers.

    My family got them just before we briefly lived near Orlando in 1999.
