Sorry we missed a week everybody, but we were at the mercy of CONvergence. The good news is we’re back. The bad news is, Jena didn’t make it. The good news is we found Engineer Corwyn. Look, we’re really sorry we missed a week, but hot damn CON is an all consuming beast. We do our best to recap here and things will go back to normal next week I swear.Tweet

We’re back from CONvergence with a show full of nerdery. We also have the triumphant return of the lovely and talented Engineer Corwyn! We talk all about the Fearless Comedy party room, Vilification Tennis, Matt’s drunken assholery, our favorite moments and more. We mention the possibility of a couple of extra interviews that Salsa conducted over the weekend, but as of now, we’re having file conversion issues. We’ll see if we can’t get it sorted out by next week. Check out some of the photos after the fold.Tweet
So this week, we’re all a little out of sorts for different reasons. That being said, Matt and Jena start the show without Salsa because Salsa is all moving and shit. Then Matt talks endlessly about his KoL Con experience, which causes much jealously in his cohosts.
So our buddy Skully got to rock his own verse of Nerdcore Rising at KoL Con 9, here’s the proof:
The game Matt, Skully, Adam and Front invented on the way to karaoke works thusly:
1. Stand near crowd of nerds or wait for a group of nerds to be seated at an adjacent table.
2. Choose a much beloved property of nerd culture and have a slightly too-loud conversation about how some aspect of it sucks.
3. Enjoy the pained expressions or even righteous defenses of said nerd property. Bonus points for making a nerd’s nose bleed.
Lastly, don;t forget to check out Jena’s Halo charity project here.Tweet
So, here we have the second, drunker half of episode 36 featuring guest co-host Porter. We discuss the merits of the Google+, and the merits of social networking sites in general. As we mentioned in the show, if you don’t have an invite to Google+ and would like one, let us know. We then consume far too much delicious scotch. Finally, we also talk about CONvergence, which Matt attended for the first time as a guest performer for Vilification Tennis. Porter goes every year, and Matt asks him to explain just what the big deal is.Tweet
