Lucky 10,000 A podcast for anyone who ever geeks out about anything.

We are joined by another very special guest this week! Zach - formerly known as 'Z' - comes on to examine the Wizard's Rules: the set of concepts used in Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. One by one, he walks us through the eleven guidelines given in this NYT bestselling fantasy series, and we discuss their uses within the story, in the real world, and as the primers on Objectivism they were intended to be. Along the way we throw in some literary criticism, a healthy dash of ethical analysis, and a few personal anecdotes. There are a couple mild spoilers for the series, but (we hope) nothing that would prevent possible enjoyment for any new readers.

Sincere thanks to Zach for coming on to get bookish with us!

It's maybe a little cliché, but come along with us as we reminisce about the music, movies, television, and books which influenced us and left the most lasting impressions. Evan and Carissa discuss the pop culture that shaped them - and probably a bunch of you, too - and along the way remember things they had long since forgotten. 

Not "only 80s kids will understand", but it might help a little bit.  So join us, and perhaps we can remind you of some stuff you loved and lost.  Of course we would love to hear from you about any of the cultural influences which left their mark, regardless when your "back in the day" was. Email or tweet us your childhood faves!

It may be a tad late in the game for a disclaimer, so this episode is more like a confession.  Evan and Carissa go through the top five things which lose each of them 'nerd cred'.  From the not-so-bad to the hate-inducing, we run the gamut of why some well-meaning but wrong-headed folk might dare say we aren't geeks/nerds.

For anyone who's ever been excluded, mocked, or flamed for the stuff they DIDN'T see, hear, like, do, or understand, this one's for you.
