nerds

There was a great program today on “To the Best of our Knowledge”, a radio program I like to listen to on NPR. “Nerds are an easy target for humor in movies and on TV… with their thick black glasses, hopelessly out-of-fashion clothes, and over-enunciated diction. But there’s a dark side to nerds. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll find out how the nerd stereotype is harming our children. Also, we’ll explore a new kind of music called nerdcore hip hop, alias geeksta rap.”

  I really like the section on author Holly Black and the nerdcore music. Though the last section about the  self-professed “War Nerd” I didn’t like. Basically I thought that most of what he said was a waste of time.

Still Holly Black more than made up for it. And I hope that Andrew heard the geeksta rap about Warcraft! That was pretty funny!

Anyone can hear this program on their website  under “Revenge of the Nerds”, which is the program title.www.wpr.org/BOOK
