I first met Lora Williams when I featured the Kansas City chapter of Extra Life, a gaming charity event. After seeing her at several cons and a MakerFaire, I found out she’s also a part of a self-proclaimed “nerd band” called Clearly Guilty. When they gave me an impromptu performance, I knew a feature post was in order. Read on and find out why they are known for calling out “bad nerds.”

2017 Solar Eclipse: A Total(ity) Recap from Missouri

Since I had to work the day of the 2017 Solar Eclipse, I asked Jackie Beucher, Vice President of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City, to do a recap of the celestial event. As Chair of the 2017 Eclipse Committee for ASKC and self-proclaimed “eclipse chaser” (10 and counting!), I knew she would have the inside scoop from her front-row seat!

Back-to-school for Geek Younglings!

Gone are the days when I had to elbow my way to WalMart or Target to load up my cart with back-to-school supplies. Both my kids are in college now, and take care of their own supplies.

So I have curated some cool geeky school supplies to hook you up. Some of the links are affiliate links, so I get a small commission, which allows me to give you more geeky content! So c’mon kids – let’s get back to school!
