If you’re under 21, you will get carded before you are able to enjoy Episode 33 of For All Intents and Purposes because this week is all about booze, but with a nerdy/geeky focus, of course.
Week in Geek: Andrew plays the pepper-based tabletop game, Scoville, while Dan dives into the Paleolithic with Simon Roy’s Tiger Lung.
Beer Bad: To discuss the threat of alcohol, Dan and Andrew put themselves through the trial of watching the infamous episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer where they try to write a show with an anti-alcohol message, but goes completely awry.
Discussion: Andrew and Dan look into the intersection of nerds and booze, bouncing around between the topics of licensed beers, specialty beers, microbrew, and the rise of nerd bars/gaming bars.
Boston Legal: Since the episode is all about booze, why not talk about a…cancelled legal dramedy starring Captain Kirk and Ultron? Sure!
Question of the Geek:
What’s your preferred alcoholic beverage for your nerdy pursuits (or your pursuits in general)?
