Back in 2013, Kurt had already established himself as the Editor-In-Chief of The Motherboard, Writer for The Cascade, and a few other publications. Disillusioned by the various podcasts out there, Kurt knew he could do better. He started coordinating with Lucas, a friend of his, and long-time nerd. He also found a small Australian boy, Alex, who added some foreign flavour to the podcast.
Five years later and the Nerds have grown immensely. With the main show now close to 1 million subscribers, the podcast has produced plenty of other shows which you can find out more about HERE.
Whether we’re talking about awkward sex, comic book movies, or Pokemon; we pride ourself on balancing humor with informed opinions and also following our own Code of Conduct.
Hosts: Three Angry Nerds, Nerds In Love, Tremble, Three Angry Gamers, Pop Culture Disorder, First Friday

Kurt graduated from Simon Fraser University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters in Political Economy in 2013. He wrote and had published “Democracy and Globalization: The Biopolitics of Video Games“.
Kurt founded the podcast, and really uses it as a platform to rattle off useless Friday The 13th facts, which he remains constantly amazed that people find enjoyment in. He hosts most of the podcasts, and runs various business aspects including but not limited to: Advertising, Sponsorships, Interviews, Press Relations, and so much more! Still getting over the shock of going to Kanto at the ‘end’ of Pokemon Gold.

I am four hundred years old, but I’ve read some magazines that say four hundred is the new twenty. My life goal is to visit Bruges.
Favourite Movie: Life is Beautiful
I’m currently a first year Mass communications student in Miami trying to break into the world of journalism, video and film production and writing. I’m incredibly passionate about film, television and the news surrounding them so I knew joining the podcast would be a great way to express that. I love discussing the nerdy news that matters every week and am excited to have you all tune in!
Favourite Movie: The Empire Strikes Back
As the old man of the group, I’ve only got one thing to say: Oh, we got trouble! Right here in River City! With a capital “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for Podcast!
