In the first E2 Podcast of 2013, Evil Catullus and Montag present a very eclectic set of readings.

This podcast is hosted on SoundCloud.

It’s time to share your inner geek. This is E2 and we’re all pretty geeky, but some of us hide it better than others. So, throughout May let’s take a moment to indulge. Tell us about your favorite escapism. Recommend movies and literature. Convey the epic tale of how you saved the world by rolling polyhedral dice across a table. What is your new geekiness? Convince us the costumes in your closet are not weird at all. Somebody please try to make LARPing not sound insane!

Oh! Math! Science! That too!
