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.)

The rules are simple:

Allison conjures up a topic. Gary and Chris are not shown the topic before recording but attempt to discuss, riff, and elucidate their knowledge on said subject despite their ignorance about the subject.


Episode 1111101: Hirameki

In this episode, Gary and Chris agree, at least, that Hirameki is Japanese in origin.

Episode 1111100: Chthonic

Also poison ivy labyrinths, attachment to things because of the stickers that are on them and social networking.

Episode 1111011: Ymir

Gary brings the topic and quickly regrets it. The rest of the episode, we discuss edge-case gods, the imposter syndrome of being an artist, zombie apocalypses and is it good to me {your name}? Also “state of flow”, being in therapy vs having a podcast and being a Loafman.
