Hard NOC Life will be going on a brief hiatus. But before it does, Keith and Shawn have to break down the election, its relation to Nerd Pop, and a special announcement about the podcast.
After one of the most consequential mid-term elections in modern history, Keith and Shawn put on their politics nerd hats to discuss the results (1:00). Then, Shawn contemplates the role of fandom in our new political reality (8:00) before he and Keith have a brief tangent on education policy in the country (23:00). Shawn also describes his aspiration to create a geek-centered summer camp for the youth of Oakland (32:30). Speaking of Oakland, they tease an upcoming live recording of the podcast coming in December (35:00). Stay tuned for more info coming soon!
What’s Nerd Poppin’ this week (35:45): Marvel’s first scripted podcast Wolverine: The Long Night, the Doom Patrol on DC Universe’s Titans, and Teen Titans GO to the Movies on blu-ray!
