This would be fun, but I have two manuscripts to write and I don't think it would be appreciated if I decided to write fiction instead...it sounds like way more fun though...

I've yet to listen to the entire show (lack of time at home since it finished downloading overnight last night), but the couple of tracks I've listened to sound GREAT!

This thread reminds me why I <3 this board so much! Nothing like a good nerd/geek/dork debate (between a bunch of nerds, geeks and dorks, of course :) Science puns have an appropriate time and place (although I'll readily admit that I'm guilty of spouting them randomly in the lab at work...typically...

This might start me moving closer to the realm of geek-dom (although if I use John's justification for not being a geek, I'm safe), but there's little that I enjoy more than some good science-philosophy debate/discussion. I was lucky enough to have a good philosophy department when I was an undergra...

I'm a nerd. Bigtime :) Case in point, in the past 4 days or so, I've explained both organic chemistry and cell biology on a related band's message board. Sad, sad, sad. I'm completely secure in my nerdiness though, so it's ok :) As for the distinction between nerd/geek/dork, we've had this discussio...

I feel confident that all the songs they recorded will be included in the broadcast. It's the interview that will get shortchanged. Our buddy Sour isn't so worried abo...
