We explore because our curiosity leaves us no other choice.

As with all quests, ours began with a simple goal: create a podcast to herald our interests and passions with talented and like-minded nerds. Thus, the NerdKicks Podcast was born, and there was much rejoicing in the kingdom. But as the podcast grew, we felt a tug toward a greater cause.

We want to explore all the facets of a nerdy life: work, family, professions, hobbies, communities, methodologies, histories, alter egos, fantasies. A quest of this magnitude is too great for any one podcast. That’s when we knew our realm needed to expand.

Welcome to the NerdQuest Podcast Network

We’ve assembled a merry band of podcasters, each dedicated to exploring one aspect of the nerd lifestyle. This is only the beginning—as our band of podcasters grows, we will take new ground for all of nerd-kind. Join us in our quest to become better nerds.
