Welcome to Rag-NERD-rok, your home of the nerdpocalypse! In our first episode, we tackle the rising costs of being a nerd in the 21st century, and discuss the many different hobbies, pastimes and technological developments that make our money disappear. We also estimate just how much of our hard-earned cash we’ve spent to maintain our nerdy lifestyles, breaking down and analyzing our expenditures during 2010 for your amusement.
