Episode 6: 10-Minute Geekout! Solo: A Star Wars Story

This episode of Nerds Who Make is the first of what I’m calling 10 Minute Geekouts — abridged version of the Obsession episodes — in which a friend or friends and I will have ten minutes to get excited and hyper-analyze something that we love. 
For the pilot of this grand experiment, I’m joined by Manny Castellanos — host of the Real on Reel podcast and contributor to Geeks of Color — to discuss SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

Episode 2: Loch Ness and Stevo the Gutter Nerd Make Twitch

Nowhere on the internet is there a creative community quite like the one you find on Twitch, yet, a lot of people are still scared of it or confused about it. On this episode of Nerds Who Make, Loch Ness, Stevo the Gutter Nerd, and Zach (most boring name for last) talk about the creativity and generosity that can be found on the platform, as well as the live performance mindset of a stream, the time commitment involved, and how Twitch has begun to be a haven for more than gamers.
