A podcast by nerds

Each episode, our hosts, Chris (jazzsequence) and Gary (binarygary) are given a topic by Allison (allisonplus) that they know nothing about in advance, and attempt to carry on a conversation about it. Hijinks ensue.

It’s the Balderdash of podcasts.


Gary (binarygary), Chris (jazzs3quence) and Allison (allisonplus) are all WordPress developers who worked together at the same agency. They are all extremely sarcastic geeks and Binary Jazz was a bad idea that was accidentally a good idea. (If you’re curious about the origin story, it all started here.)

Episode 10001111: Glaucous

In this Thanksgiving special episode, we talk about our favorite Thanksgiving foods (or Thanksgiving foods that Chris missed out on), hypothesize that the topic of the week is a hardened outer shell and read some spam! Also, Gary muses on anti-capitalism and a Christmas parade in November and Chris describes his recent visit to Meow …

Episode 10001110: Phrontistery

Also, Chris brings the topic back to Dungeons & Dragons and Great Baking Shows.

Episode 10001101: Asterism

We’re back from a brief break with a new opportunity to conjure metaphors for what the show is like. An announcement for BinJazzConf is made and we discuss Binary Jazz greatest hits topics like Dyson Spheres, Chris’ roleplaying anecdotes, cryptozoology, metaphysics and space. Also, ghosts and stuff that matters.
