Episode 23: Stories with my Sister Last week, I got a chance to sit down with my brother, so it only seemed fitting to sit down with my sister, Alli Parr, for our latest episode. In this episode, we shared A LOT of laughs, but also talked about the life of a small town youth pastor/substitute teacher/waitress and were able to share stories from our childhood. Enjoy!

Episode 22: Brothers

Episode 22: Brothers


Episode 22: Brothers I was able to find time to sit down with my brother while he was home on break from Madison. We were able to talk about what college life is like down in Madison, but this conversation also provided an avenue to talk about our favorite vacations as children. We also "roasted" our parents towards the end of the podcast. It was a fun episode to record and I hope you enjoy it! Episode Music by Beak Nasty

After Hours: Pilot

After Hours: Pilot


Throw some good friends together with pizza, beer and hit record. That's essentially what we did on this first episode of "After Hours" and we hope you enjoy our stories, ramblings, and goofiness. Enjoy this podcast with Dalton, James and Ian. Let us know what you think of the show in the comments or if you've got any beef with our Hot Takes. Spotify Playlist Recommendation from James:
This week, I spill my guts on what the life of a DJ is like. I talk about some of the best parts of DJ gigs and some of the worst parts as well. I also try my hand at a little philosophy, but that might have just been the tacos talking. Enjoy!
We're back! It's been a little while, but I was able to chat with three-time guest, Ian Malcolm, to discuss his latest writings! The story, Catch Island, is a part of the Contact This! anthology in which all the stories revolve around the idea of first contact with aliens. It's kind of like what would happen if the movie Alien took place on the set of Bachelors in Paradise. The story, Kyle: Respawned, is part of the Storming Area 51 anthology. This story is about a Kyle and his naruto runner trying to figure out why he keeps coming back to life during the Area 51 invasion. This anthology also includes a story from New York Times Bestselling Author Declan Finn and a story from USA Today Bestselling Author Michael J. Allen. Enjoy!
The Northern Nerd traveled to the land of Lambeau this past week to experience the Packers Shareholders meeting and Packers Training Camp. During that time, I was able to sit down with one of the best families I know, the Kujawas, and we were able to talk about life in Green Bay, but also why you should never eat airport flounder in London. Enjoy!
Yep, it's just The Northern Nerd and an Abraham Lincoln Cheesehead filled with questions. Enjoy!
Catching up with friends is an absolute must. I invited my good friend, Jacob Stuttgen, up to the northwoods for the day. After playing tour guide for the day, we came back to Northern Nerd HQ to record this here podcast. Enjoy! Sponsor: The Northern Nerd Online Store Music: Beak Nasty - Chill Funk Files Vol. 1
Meals bring people together and Nathan Bochler, owner of The Ranch Supper Club, is no stranger to the stories that often accompany food. He shared a few of his stories with me on the podcast as well as shared a few of the nerdiest things that he owns. Enjoy our latest episode!

Ian Malcolm now holds the title for most guest appearances so far on our show. (A title he doesn't want to give up any time soon.) In this episode, I got a chance to talk with Ian over the phone about his new book "The Land of Unlived Dreams" and how his writing process differed from his first book, "The Draxler Program" (among many other things). Enjoy our latest episode! Sponsor: Hurricane Lawn Care Music by: Beak Nasty - Optical Illusion Album: Chill Funk Files Vol. 1
