"Is Diablo Cody Actually A Nerd?" w/ Diablo Cody

EFor our TENTH EPISODE (!) of NERTZ, we have an extremely special guest in screenwriter and TV show creator Diablo Cody. There's so much to be said about Ms. Cody, but we'll leave that for the episode, a fun and informal frolic through her thoughts on what it means to be a nerd or a geek, whether or not there's such a thing as "nerd cultural misappropriation" and even a little bit about why she kind-of-sort-of agrees with American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis that Millennials are a bit too cuddly (and why that may kind-of-sort-of be okay). We're truly honored to have Diablo Cody celebrate our Tenth Episode Anniversary and can't wait for you to check out what makes her so damn deliciously devilish ...

"How To Make Love Like A Geek" w/ Missy Suicide

EWhat can one say about Suicide Girls? The world-renowned iconic and iconoclastic collective of ever-growing young women who champion their inner and outer beauty in the most unique fashion while being at the same time totally embracing of their un-fashionability. There's plenty more wonderful contradictions ahead with our episode involving the proud mama of the Suicide Girls bunch, Missy Suicide, who speaks with us about how being a misfit or outsider can sometimes be pretty damn sexy. In the process, we'll discuss how nerds and geeks have become so hot (in more ways than one) over the past two decades and what Suicide Girls may have had to do with it (especially when we consider one of their last photography collections, GEEKOLOGY.)
