Nerdette: Tripping Hard For Science

Oh hey there! If you're having Game of Thrones withdrawals, might we suggest a dose of Nerdette? On this episode, we talk with a woman who administers drugs like LSD, Ecstasy, and psilocybin to volunteers in an effort to learn more about the human nervous system. Harriet de Wit, who runs the University of Chicago's Human Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory, tells us how those trials go down, how these drugs might be used therapeutically, and what causes people to take drugs in the first place. Nerdette comes out every other Friday and it's DELIGHTFUL AF. If you like it, subscribe here or wherever you get your podcasts!

8.7: One Last Time

It's the end of an era. After more than 70 hours of television and nearly ten years of worrying about the Stark children, Game of Thrones is finally over. Tricia, Greta and Peter got together one last time to reflect on the series..

8.6: ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?!

Game of Thrones is over, and there is a *lot* to process. In this recap of the series finale, Tricia realizes she doesn't like endings, Peter wants Jon Snow's head and Greta observes the Valyrian word for Dorne appears to be Dornut. Listen to this recap of Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 6, titled "The Iron Throne." Then be sure to come back next week for our final recap of the entire series, including a debate on the forthcoming spinoffs and whether or not we'll truly ever get to read those pesky books. Also: Last chance to get a sweet Nerdette or Nerdette Recaps tote bag when you support public media in Chicago! Check it out: https://www.wbez.org/nerdalert

8.5: Well, That Escalated Quickly

That was pretty messed up! The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones has come and gone, and we all just witnessed Dany commit a few thousand war crimes. What just happened? Madness! How are we feeling? Conflicted! But there was some good news if you're a land speculator: Now might just be a great time to buy real estate in King's Landing. Join Nerdette and Peter Sagal as we consider the super low mortgage rates!

8.4: Family Meeting!

With the Battle of Winterfell over, the Stark clan needs to talk. What do we do about this Dany lady? And who's making dinner Tuesday night? There are only two episodes left before Game of Thrones concludes, and Peter, Tricia and Greta have convened to discuss this episode's curious events. Consider: Jon decided to play telephone with his bombshell of a secret, Varys openly discussed treason against Queen Dany, and Qyburn once again refused to put on an undershirt (a simple crew neck would be FINE). Have a listen, and remember that we also want to hear from you! Join the conversation and share your own theories with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #NerdetteRecaps. You can also send us a voice recording! Just record it on your smartphone and send the audio file to nerdetterecaps@gmail.com, preferably late Sunday night just after the latest episode. There are only two left!

8.3: Fifty Points To House Mormont!

Don't worry, if you couldn't tell what exactly was going on last night, we've got your back. And a lot of feelings to process. The army of the undead finally descended on Winterfell, and it turns out the crypt really was one of the safest places to hide. (At least, compared to the carnage upstairs.) Tricia, Greta and Peter consider the undead, the newly dead and where we go from here on the latest recap of Game of Thrones. Also: Who run the world? GIRLS! P.S. Want our EXCELLENT #NerdetteRecaps tote bag? Get one here: https://www.wbez.org/nerdalert

8.2 : Y'all Want To Check Out The Crypt?

It sure seems like the crypt is the safest place in Winterfell. Anyone want to check it out? But wait ... considering these folks are about to fight, you know, AN ARMY OF THE UNDEAD, perhaps taking refuge in a crypt of their enemy's potential allies is a bad idea? To answer just this type of pressing question, Nerdette has once again joined up with our pal Peter Sagal to recap the latest episode of Season 8 of Game of Thrones, titled "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms." Tricia, Greta and Peter consider that thorny revelation in Jon and Dany's relationship, new insights into the Night King's (possibly benevolent?) motivations and Tormund Giantsbane's ridiculous origin story. Listen and share! And remember that we also want to hear from you! Join the conversation and share your own theories with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #NerdetteRecaps.

8.1 Winterfell: Greetings From Stark Party Central!

Game of Thrones has returned with reckless abandon! Well, maybe not reckless abandon ... nobody you know and love died. (Yet.) But whew! A ton of stuff went down: Sansa and Dany exchanged neverending side-eye, Jon got some insight into his family tree and — in what will certainly lead to endless nightmares amongst the wider populace — the piercing scream of a spiralized child-zombie-demon scared the ever-loving hot pie out of everyone. The Nerdette crew of Greta Johnsen and Tricia Bobeda joined Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!'s Peter Sagal to recap the Season 8 premiere. Have a listen, and remember that we also want to hear from you! Join the conversation and share your own theories with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #NerdetteRecaps. You can also send us a voice recording! Just record it on your smartphone and send the audio file to nerdetterecaps@gmail.com, preferably late Sunday night just after the latest episode. And thanks to the kind folks at HBO and Chicago's Music Box Theatre, who helped the Nerdette crew watch the premiere live with hundreds of our fellow nerds. We salute you!

800 Prologue: Season 8 Of Nerdette Recaps Game Of Thrones With Peter Sagal

What's the Night King doing with his ice dragon? Will Tyrion tell Daenerys that Cersei is pregnant? Is everyone on their way to Winterfell? And Hot Pie! Why is no one talking about Hot Pie?! A lot went down in the last season of HBO's Game of Thrones. To help refresh your memory, Nerdette's Tricia Bobeda and Greta Johnsen rejoin Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!'s Peter Sagal to recap Season 7. They also take a stab at making their own predictions for the next season, which premieres April 14. The gang will recap each episode of Season 8 every Monday, and we want to hear from you.
