The Nerd Fountain

Nerd Fountain is not a first look-driven outlet, instead we are a podcast and blog that reviews and interviews designers, developers, and publishers from multiple industries to deliver both an inside perspective and a human touch from behind the closed doors that drive nerd culture. We also discuss mid-life dating, give advice, and answer emails. Shows range from The Nerd Fountain's main feed, which features specific discussion points, paired usually with a tabletop or video game review, followed by casual conversation. Other shows include Interviews and shows from the road between Jeffrey Norman Bourbeau and other collaborators.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our latest release.

This week we have the first in a over 200 episode backlogged series releasing from our time working on Session Impressions, a review podcast crew members from the show Jm, JNB, Glen, and Hoju created with Dan Yarrington, Sara Yarrington, David Welsh, and Brian Tully back in 2007-2008.

These podcasts focus on a single product from the world of tabletop gaming, possibly their expansions as well, and the discussions that hover around them are also covered.

We will be releasing out many older reviews from Session Impressions as well as new episodes in time covering the many games sent my way. In August, we will begin running contests for Patrons that will be given a game from our review pile, pre-played of course, monthly through a raffelcoptor drawing for these listeners only that help make the show a reality.

Hello time travelers,

We review history itself! Then all the television that uses it for dramatic plotlines. We get in deep reviewing Marco Polo, Rome, the Man in the High Castle, and the Magic: the Gathering Khan's block set releasing during the time of recording.

The episode really collapses in on itself by an hour and a half!

If you have any feedback, questions, or need some advice in love, games, or the love game, then you should email us:nerdfountain@gmail.com

We would also love your support at patreon.com/nerdfountain
