From WBEZ Chicago, Nerdette Podcast is a weekly conversation with nerds of all stripes. Lately Tricia and Greta talked to Tavi Gevinson about the art of fangirling, Gillian Anderson about fish and Stefan Fatsis about raising a competitive Scrabbler. Nerd is a verb for the show -- it's about getting people to talk about their obsessions.
