Back Row 505 – 508 | Raising Nerdy Kids

 

Radio Matt & Mo discuss how they connect with their kids through nerdy fandoms, how it differs from when they were kids, and how parents need to have one hand on the wheel in a world that is only growing more nerdy.

This is a collection of all the content from all four daily Morning Shows from this past week. The main topic segments begin at about the 1:46:30 mark.

The Back Row Morning Show is recording live in advance on Twitch.tv/LTNonair Saturdays at 9am Eastern. Be sure to check us out while we are recording and be a part of creating the show in real-time! This is also the place to be if you are into bonus stories and extra content!

This week, Community Content Producer NextGenNerd25 submitted a topic for us to chat about on the recasting of Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa in the MCU. There are two sides to the argument with fans starting a petition in favor of recasting (with over 60,000 signatures) and Marvel holding strong on their “we will not recast” stance. Is recasting disrespectful to the legacy Chadwick left behind? Or is it the best thing to do to keep T’Challa’s character actively involved in the MCU?
