Aren’t We All Nerds in Some Form or Other?

Often in life, nerds (or geeks) come under fire for not "fitting into the norm". In episode 17 of Life Through a Dram, I talk about how I used to be one of those who laughed at nerds, and how I came to the realization nerds are pretty cool (and became one myself).

Topics on the menu include:

  • Remembering happier times in an otherwise shitty childhood
  • Being a mean kid before I knew any better
  • Finding love and appreciation for nerdiness
  • How an awakening to alternatives to "normality" changed my life mindset
  • Why we all need to be more accepting if we truly wish to be the best we can be


My equipment:

This week's whisky is the Toki Japanese whisky from Suntory. Slainte var.
