SUBJECT: Nerding Out About Non-Nerdy Things

Hello Joel and cohost(s)! 

I was wondering:

What are some hobbies or interests that you nerd out about, but aren’t typically nerdy? Alternatively if you can think of some that aren’t necessarily yours, that works too. 

For example, in my case it’s welding and metal fabrication. It’s social perception is a “manly” job and pretty far removed from nerd status, but I absolutely geek out about nice welds and fantastic equipment.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this topic.

I love the podcast, keep being rad!

(All of you.)
