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

00:0000:00

This week we take on the worst of us: the trolls, haters, and insufferable fanboys who make life both on and off the internet more taxing and troublesome than it needs to be.  We basically cover everyone from racist YouTube commenters to hardcore MMO raiders, forum trolls to PC/Console MasterRace believers, and pseudo-anonymous assholes to socially awkward sexists.

It's a little less RAGE-y than our previous few, but probably more important, as this one actually has a lesson to wrap it all up.

Congratulations again to wikishuffle for their win at the UK Podcasters Awards!

This week we get serious about comedy.

Carissa is an unabashed stand-up comedy nerd, despite (as she claims) not being funny herself.  Both our hosts have a history in improv, though Evan is the only one still actively involved in an improv troupe.  Together, we possess both a wealth of information and an overabundance of admiration for stand up comedy.  In what turned out to be our longest episode yet, we go from court jesters to Lewis Black, Gallagher to Dane Cook, Bob Hope to Chad Daniels, Monty Python to Brian Regan, and much - SO MUCH - more.

If Carissa's nearly 10-day comedy playlist is anything to go by, there is bound to be something you don't know about stand-up or someone you haven't heard of yet.  Listen in to find out who/what that is, and get serious about the funny.

If you think you know a comedian Carissa hasn't heard, or if you need a suggestion for a new comedian to listen to, please email us at luckytenthousand@gmail.com or hit us up on Twitter @Lucky_10k.

How's that for an episode title?

After three months, it is finally here: our long-awaited talk on the first of the Star Wars prequels.  Talked seemingly to death by nerds and film critics for 16 years now, we take a new stick to this horse and cover both the bad and the good that can be found in The Phantom Menace. And yes, Carissa argues, there is good to be found.

We play devil's advocate for haters, believers, and apologists alike.  Irrespective of how you feel about the prequels, there is almost sure to be something you hadn't thought of in our comprehensive geek-out over the first of the three least-beloved entries into the Star Wars oeuvre.

If you thought Evan had said all there was to say about zombies in Episodes Four and Eight, you are going to be surprised at this one.  This time, he gets more in depth about the absolute must-have zombie horror flicks for aficianados and new collectors alike.  We hear about the top ten on his list as well as some favorable honorable mentions.

Minor spoilers ahead for some of the best zombie movies ever put on film.

Also, as Carissa mentions later in the episode, visit ZombieHunters.org for all your zombpacolypse needs.

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.
