Sanity Claws Radio – Problems with Nerd Hype!

sanity_claws_radio_mainWe talk about the downsides of nerd hype in this episode of Sanity Claws Radio.

Lindsay, Mike, Badger, Karen, Scotty and Jon talk about the escalation of hype cycles that is so very prevalent within the nerd world. We talk about some infamous hype trains that have derailed in the past, our own experiences with overinflated hype, and what we’re doing to temper our hype in the future. Also, Mike and Lyndsay get their WoW on, Badger flies around the universe, Karen and Scotty try to be the boss monster, and Jon is awed by a movie. And finally, we finish the show with a fiesty round of I Can Top That. It’s a nice and lax one this week. Join in won’t you?
