NO ORDINARY NERD

No Ordinary Nerd is a show about branching out in geek culture and trying new things. Our hosts challenge each other each week to try different things in nerd culture and discuss the content. Each one of our Co – Hosts has been affected by anxiety, depression, and personal traumas. This is our way of reaching out to find connections that help us learn together, grow together and heal together. Try alongside them and you too can become a No Ordinary Nerd!
