About This Episode

There are few things a person needs in 2020 during a global pandemic more than a reliable internet connection.  Maybe a solid pair of podcast pants and to remember how to make a halfway decent cup a joe. What does any of that have to do with Love Love Thy Nerd? We’re so glad you asked because that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
