Just a Boy Who Works in a Shop: Typing the Characters from Stardust

We have to start with a confession. When we initially picked this film to cover on the podcast, we thought we’d have more to work with. Stardust (2007) is an absolutely charming movie (and book), but it turns out we don’t get *that* much in the way of character personality and motivation. We did theContinue reading “Just a Boy Who Works in a Shop: Typing the Characters from Stardust”

Yer a Wizard, Harry: Typing the Characters from Harry Potter

Is there any series millennials love more than Harry Potter? Probably not. Lance and Kate are both lovers of the series- both in print and film, and so it was only a matter of time before they attempted to type the main characters. Typing Lord Voldemort led to some interesting discussion about the differences betweenContinue reading “Yer a Wizard, Harry: Typing the Characters from Harry Potter”

Live Long and Prosper: Typing the Characters from Star Trek

What is the best way to learn your enneagram type? A lot of folks start with a free test they find on the internet. While that’s not necessarily BAD, it’s not really GOOD either. Tests- even good tests- are wrong as often as they’re right. And the freebies you find on the internet are basicallyContinue reading “Live Long and Prosper: Typing the Characters from Star Trek”

Anybody Want a Peanut: Typing the Characters from the Princess Brid

“Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday.” Actually, it’s just the latest episode of the Nerdagram Podcast. The Princess Bride is one of those iconic films that every American has seen and most Americans can quote. It may seem inconceivable, but it’s true. In this episode, Lance and Kate dug into these characters we love,Continue reading “Anybody Want a Peanut: Typing the Characters from the Princess Brid”

Toss a Coin to Your Witcher: Typing the Characters from The Witcher

In this episode, Lance and Kate typed four characters from The Witcher universe: the Bard, Ciri, Yennefer, and Geralt. Lance and Kate agree the Bard is probably a 4. You’d better not insult his singing voice. Ciri is a bit harder to type. We’re thinking she’s in the gut triad, but we’re not positive. She’sContinue reading “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher: Typing the Characters from The Witcher”

I Gotta Bad Feeling About This: Typing the Characters from the Original Star Wars Trilogy

May the fourth be with you… In honor of May the 4th, we shifted production schedule and brought you an episode on the most iconic characters from the Star Wars universe: Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker.

Here for Kenny’s Birthday: Typing the Characters from the Umbrella Academy

The Hargreeves children have superpowers. They’re also super dysfunctional. Raised by an emotionally distant genius who (spoiler alert) is also an alien, they spent most of their childhood fighting bad guys as the Umbrella Academy. Now that they’re all grown up (except for the one who died and the one who disappeared). They’ve gone theirContinue reading “Here for Kenny’s Birthday: Typing the Characters from the Umbrella Academy”

Draw that Man in a Chicken Suit: Typing the Characters from Toy Story

All of our listeners have probably encountered Toy Story- either as a youngster or a parent of youngsters. Either way, these characters will live in our imaginations to infinity and beyond. *Take Note.

Episode 5: Typing the Characters from the Mummy (1999)

Exotic setting. Lost treasures. Romance. Reanimated corpses. The Mummy has it all! Lance and Kate both adore this swashbuckling adventure, staring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, and they had lots of fun typing the main characters. Jonathan is a smart (but somewhat lazy) Egyptologist, whose “borrows” an artifact from a criminal. It just so happensContinue reading “Episode 5: Typing the Characters from the Mummy (1999)”

Episode 4: Little Women

In 1868, Louisa May Alcott’s semi-autobiographical work, Little Women, captured the hearts of American readers, and continues to do so today. Whether you’ve come to Little Women through the novel, or one of it’s many film adaptations, the March sisters have become icons. And since Alcott did such an excellent job creating these rich characters,Continue reading “Episode 4: Little Women”
