A podcast by nerds

Each episode, our hosts, Chris (jazzsequence) and Gary (binarygary) are given a topic they know nothing about in advance, and attempt to carry on a conversation about it. Hijinks ensue.

It’s the Balderdash of podcasts.

About

Gary (binarygary), Chris (jazzs3quence) and Allison (allisonplus) are all WordPress developers who worked together at the same agency. They are all extremely sarcastic geeks and Binary Jazz was a bad idea that was accidentally a good idea. (If you’re curious about the origin story, it all started here.)

The rules are simple:

Allison conjures up a topic. Gary and Chris are not shown the topic before recording but attempt to discuss, riff, and elucidate their knowledge on said subject despite their ignorance about the subject.

Episodes

Episode 1010010: Orbuculum

In this episode, we discuss various orb-shaped objects and try to discern the origin of the suffix -culum in an attempt to decipher today’s topic. Also, Twitter usage, how to pronounce Buttigieg, a letter from Danette, and our favorite movie in five words. (Spoiler: Gary’s is about space.)

Episode 1010001: Permittivity

We switch roles in this episode and Gary brings us a topic that circles us back to the Trump Impeachment Trial in the US Senate. Also Scouts, of varying kinds, the Great Boston Molasses Flood, Canadian things, Amazon, the likelihood of being pulled over, and the fine line between random and obscure.
