Episode 44: Updates on Making Your Own Fun

It's been really hectic in the NW nerd world lately. It's like a tornado full of sharks but instead of sharks it's nerds. A Nerd-nado if you will... On today's show the nerdcasters fill you in on Zombie 2013, Westlands 1st game, Seadog Nights, and the Alliance Seattle 4-day event. Later in the show the group discusses how to make your own fun at a LARP. 

Our good buddies at Beyond the Aether are kickstarting their next event, show them some support!
