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

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.

Evan was the last person on Earth to watch Firefly and now he gets to share with us the joy of being the lucky one.  Lamentable as the show's premature cancellation is (damn you, Fox!), most of us have had the better part of a decade to mourn its loss while he is finding himself in the throes of new grief. Like most of us, the only closure he can really find is from incessantly going over all the great things we can only ever enjoy on rewatching.

You can't take the sky from me.

This week we bring on very special guest Jason from our brother podcast The Bearded Ones to talk about the long-standing classic, Saturday Night Live. We cover cast changes, ads and shorts, what worked, what bombed, our favorite and least favorite things about it, and basically everything that has given this American standard its pride of place in pop culture.

2015 is coming to a close and so, as we approach the beginning of the year when those born at the turn of the millennium will be driving cars, Evan and Carissa take a look back - as many others are doing - at the halfway point of the Twenty-Teens.

The best (and a couple of the worst) in science, tech, medicine, movies, tv, and games of the year all get a nod.  Then we take a look forward to hope for the best to come in the approaching year.  We know everyone is doing a year-in-review, but naturally we think ours is the best.

Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve celebration, everyone, and we'll catch you in a week!

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.
