More
This episode is dedicated entirely to Margret Atwood's landmark dystopian novel, The Handmaid's Tale. It's a horrifying story that gets closer to reality with each passing day - in which America has been overthrown by religious fundamentalists and anyone not male, white, and heterosexual is killed or subjugated. We experience this awful reality through the eyes of a woman trapped in sexual servitude; her existence reduced to being a walking womb to compensate for the future's low birth...

You know what we don’t talk about enough on Nerdy Show? Books. And that’s a damn shame. We’re not talking about comic books, we’re talking about honest to got letters-on-a-page books. They’re the original nerd medium! Turns out, most of us here at Nerdy Show are avid book junkies. So it’s about time we started up a book club – in podcast form of course! This episode comes to you courtesy of Nerdy Show listener Jobarda, who might be a visionary for opening the book (as it were) on Nerdy...
