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

00:0000:00

We are right chuffed to be joined this week by the Bearded Pods' very own Trevor Furlong, formerly of Scotland Yard and present acclaimed bassman of Teddy and the Bassman. In the first of what will hopefully be several appearances, our guest shares his experiences as a stranger in a not-terribly-as-strange-as-you'd-think land. Our talk ranges far and wide, touching Cockney rhyming slang, immigration culture shock and the lack thereof, imported television, subtle differences in humor, and more. Anglophiles like Carissa will not want to miss this episode.

After you finish here be sure to check out Trevor and Teddy's podcast, Teddy and the Bassman, another fine production found on the Bearded Pods Network.

This is the first of our intermittent series, NERD RAGE!, and to open it, Carissa rants to Evan in great detail about why Equilibrium is the worst movie ever made.  Spoilers.  You're welcome.

But first, a very special message about an event of which every nerd should be aware.  Starting Sunday July 26 and going through Saturday August 8, the largest ever e-sports tournament is being held.  The International DotA2 Championships, series 5, kicks off this weekend with the 16 best teams in the world battling for their shot at a cut of the record-breaking $17 million prize pool.  Carissa is so excited she can barely contain herself, so some of the info given is slightly inaccurate. (Sorry!)

Visit the DotA2 International main page or the DotA2 subreddit for more information, and be sure to tune in online to watch the best of the best compete in the biggest e-sports championship in the world.
