Founded by Cap Blackard, Nerdapalooza founder – John “Hex” Carter, 8-Bit Theater and Atomic Robo author – Brian Clevinger, and the late, great “Triforce” Mike Pandel these four just did what came natural: nerding out about things they love and making each other laugh.

Our irreverent and “charming” personalities have garnered a devoted listenership of nerds from all over the world.

Why we’re “The Original Name in Nerdcasting”
Aside from that “nerdcasting” is a word we made up, Nerdy Show has been in the nerd podcast network game longer than any other major group out there – February 2009. Our origins are humble. We didn’t start with any Hollywood money or investors, just four friends sitting around doing what comes naturally: nerding out about stuff we love and making each other laugh. Over the years, as our cast, programming, and resources have grown we stay true to our beginnings and above all else: authenticity.
