Nerdy Show :: The 2016 FINAL BOSS – Top 20 Nerdy Things of the Year!
The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings – and in this case all the greatest geeky happenings of the year!
We’re not going to beat around the bush, 2016 has been a mess. But in spite of tragedies, loss, and injustice aplenty, there’s been some spectacular achievements and innovations; from high science, to the most popcorn of pop culture, and everything in-between. That‘s what our annual Top 20 Nerdy Things list is all about: counting down the best, geekiest people, places, achievements, media, and more that the year has to offer and ranking them with the only measurement of any relevance left on this forsaken rock: nerdiness.
Join Cap and Jess along with a rotating cast of faces from around The Nerdy Show Network (Doug, Jon, Brandon, Aaron, La Valle, Oral, Max, and Briggs) as we cast arbitrary and subjective judgements on topical geekitudes. We share all the deets and feels on what made this collection of cultural oddities shine amidst this bleak year, say goodbye to our favorite celebrities, and even award a few superlatives to some fine specimens that didn’t make the Top 20 cut.
If you find yourself lost and looking for meaning, these tremendously awesome happenings just might restore your faith in humanity.
