Podcast: Play in new window | Download
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)?
