This N.E.R.D.cast is another on-the-road episode featuring award-winning fantasy painter Michael Whelan. This was a great honor for me, and Michael and I talk about everything from his horror art to his childhood experiences to ice cream. Yes, ice cream. Give it a listen!

N.E.R.D. cast # 28

Can you even begin to comprehend how great your life will be now that we’re back!? Okay, so it won’t be that big an improvement… but, at least you have something to listen to while you slave away at your job. For our triumphant return to the airwaves, we have special guest Megan Areford of ‘Face-Off-Season 1′ with us, and we spend an hour-and-a-half laughing together, making fun of Megan, hearing her profound insights into everything from the judges on the show to her take on the future of cinema. We also discuss a number of other loser topics that can only be discussed by your favorite group of geeks. Norman Meyers, Paul Komoda and me, Jordu Schell–your host–are back. Listen and laff.NERDCAST#28
