This week Dan from Northern Nerdcast joins Vanda to talk about Gronk and Eli Manning! (Boo hoo, Eli.) They also review the Grey Cup, or Snow Bowl, as it has been renamed…by me, anyway. Then they have to go back to their geek roots to give you their geek favourites. Linky links below!
The title is a bit of a throwback to Vanda’s high school days. You might be able to guess that Vanda did not sit at the jock table in the cafeteria. All the Jennifer’s got picked first in Phys Ed. Seriously there were, like, 8 Jennifers. But there is only one Vanda!
Gronk can’t talk about it.
Dan’s pick for geek TV – The Orville
Dan’s pick for video games – Super Mario Odyssey
Dan’s pick for geek board games – Spy Fall and Codenames
Vanda’s pick for geek books – Stainless Steel Rat series
Vanda’s pick for geek movie – For the Love of Spock
We both love Riverdale and Stranger Things!
This week Vanda is joined by her nephew, Josh! They chat about their weekend fantasy football matchup AND their fave movies from before they were born. Vanda even found some talkies! Then they close it out by talking about the biggest stories out of the NFL this season.
The episode title is pretty easy to figure out. Though Vanda insists on calling her cohost Joshua since that’s the name his mama gave him!

I need to google what a Packer is? Is it a cheese thing? I’m a really good packer except I always bring too many pairs of shoes. And not enough socks and tights.
