Show #016: Geek Princes

The sixteenth episode of our podcast, Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average), is now online.

In this episode: Paul swears a lot, is scatterbrained and self-involved, and recounts a tale of charging the mound of a World Series winner; Storm admits to watching cartoons in college, comes perilously close to kissing ass, and gets us all considering who should be the first Chief Nerd.

Audience participation alert! Please respond to the poll below and help us decide on the new US Secretary of Geek Affairs—or post a comment nominating your own candidate.

UPDATE: Bracketed Grand Tourney coming soon (Michael Wiczer FTW)…keep the suggestions coming!

Featured post-show song: “Shoehorn with Teeth” – They Might Be Giants

    John(s) Linnell/Flansburgh. L would epitomize it, but I’m not sure if he’d want the job. Make it work, Paul and Storm!

    Tom Lehrer – the ORIGINAL geek: he’s smart, he’s funny, he’s musical, he’s taught math and science, and he’s politically minded. Who else would be a better pick for a government position overseeing all things geeky/nerdy?

    Also, how about Kevin Smith?

    I think your premise of Obama being the first geek president is flawed, and would have to call that one for Nixon, easily.

    You’re talking about a guy, having scholarships to Harvard and Yale but his family couldn’t afford the train tickets, he went to a closer local college, denied from the only fraternity, and in true Revenge of the Nerds fashion, rallied the outcasts, started his own, and shortly became student body president.
