Nerd Nite No. 81: St. Nick, Monster Mash, Resuscitation Science, and Wishbook Game Show Fun!
Here at Nerd Nite, we like to end the year with a bang! We have a great line up in store as we round out 2017:
First of all, we have Philly Geek Awards Geek of the Year Marion Leary talking about her work in resuscitation science.
Glen Tickle, who happens to be the wonderful Nerd Nite Bethlehem, PA co-boss, will be talking about the strange history of the Monster Mash.
And, since it’s the holidays, our very own Simon Joseph will present “St. Nick: Bishop, Elf, and Pawn Star”
Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of: children, coopers, sailors, fishermen, merchants, broadcasters, the falsely accused, repentant thieves, brewers, pharmacists, archers, and pawnbrokers. What the hell does any of that have to do with flying reindeer, elf sweatshops, and Christmas? Put a carrot in your shoe as you prepare for the gift of knowledge.
BIO: Simon “the Cannibal” Joseph (@Cannibal_Simon) is, among other things, the host of the much neglected podcast The Vexillogicast and co-boss of Philly Nerd Nite. He usually talks about flags, but couldn’t think of anything exciting or holiday-themed at the last minute. Raised Catholic, it was hagiography and iconography that got him into heraldry and vex.
What’s more? Our friend Ben Leach is bringing back the Sears Wishbook game, The Cost is Correct, for another year!
