Here to help are our Experts Lauren Aycock Anderson, Phil Doccolo, Erin Fox, Becky Hackerman, Chris Hudson, and Dan Marse-Kapr.

April 8th, 2017 - Twin Peaks

The gum you like is finally back in style. The owls are not what they seem. The coffee is damn fine. Our regular home at the WindUp Space was designed to look like the Black Logde, so how could we resist doing an episode to celebrate the return of Twin Peaks? We couldn't! We almost lost the tape, but Diane made a backup copy. Join our guests Chaz Kedelsa, Rosalind Paris, Aaron Travis, and for the first time on stage co-host Patrick Storck plays the game.

March 26th, 2017 - Role Playing Games

Some might argue this show is pretty much all role playing, with folks taking on characters as "experts" and trying to use charisma and intelligence to take down their enemies. In fact we got six folks to do pretty much exactly that. Discussing the broad range of role playing games past and present, as well as the culture of gaming, are Brad Bukowsky, Dorian Gray, Jim Meyer, Bryan Preston, Mike Ridgaway, Tommy Sinbazo.

December 18th, 2016 - Year in Review

July 31st, 2016 - Broadway

June 26th, 2016 - Board Games

We were going to take a risk with another regional based show, but that topic was the monopoly of the news cycle, so we changed our stratego and rolled out something more slice of life. Board games! The way families can get together and have the same level of heated arguments as politics, but with an option to flip the table and walk away! Our guests featured this episode are Abby Cocke, Shaun Grulkowski, Miles Needer, Bryan Preston, Heiko Spieker, and TJ Stambaugh!

August 30th, 2015 - College

July 26th, 2015 - Fast Food

June 28th, 2015 - Cold War

America and Russia haven't always gotten along. There was a day we all woke up every day to eggs, toast, and the threat of nuclear annihilation. Demonstrating that nostalgia tends towards the good stuff, we dredge up a lot of the scarier stuff via the same way we dealt with it back then - humor and shouting. Go duck and cover under a desk and listen to our guests Craig Coletta, Erin Fox, Cole Grinnell, Chris Hudson, Robert Lesser, and Heiko Spieker!

April 26th, 2015 - Disney

This is our journey through the Magic Kingdoms of the many fine creations of the Walt Disney company! Content warning: as told through the eyes of our jaded and possibly drunk experts, so not for the little ones. Let them keep their childhood a few more years.

January 25th, 2015 - The Oscars

We'd like to thank the Academy of Snark and Contrivances for tonight's episode of "Expert of Nothing - Oscars Edition". It's such an honor to be nominated, but I couldn't be here without people like Greg Brown (accepting the part of the second round for Greg, Michael Ziccardi), Craig Coletta, Prescott Gaylord, Chris Hudson, Chris LaMartina, and Mike Smith. There are probably people I am missing but it will have come to me later. Before the music plays me off, thank you Mom! Dad! This one for all the dreamers! It can happen! Living proof! Thank you!

August 31st, 2014 - Women's Studies

As a show hosted by two men, we have always wanted to make sure we include a female perspective when, well, they sign up. But knowing how things sometimes skew we wanted to really dive in and learn a lot more about "the fairer sex". See how fair they are in head to head competition in this fantastic episode! Special thanks to our Experts Kathy Carson, Erin Fox, Sarah Gorman, Violet Gray, Kris H, and Melissa O'Brien.

June 29th, 2014 - Disasters

It's been said that pitting folks who claim to know it all into an open forum with a bar was a recipe for disaster. Several years in we can't argue that, but we do so enjoy it. So much so we wanted to celebrate disasters themselves! Special thanks to our Experts Erin Fox, Dave Manoogian, Jim Meyer, Allyson Washington, Trevor Wilhelm, and Michael Ziccardi

April 27th, 2014 - Religion

We are never afraid to shy away from controversy, but this time we thought we should really roll up our sleeves and treat the core beliefs of folks the world over, for millenia, have used to guide themselves and become better people. Gave it a shot, anyway. Preaching from the stage this time we feature Keith Becraft, Cole Grinnell, John Higgins, Mark Miller, Mike Ridgeway, and Allyson Washington!

March 30th, 2014 - The 1990's

February 23rd, 2014 - Sexual Education

November 6th, 2013 - Pure Filth

Pure Filth! Our very first show away from the home base, we thank Magooby's Joke House for bringing us in to do a taboo-centric show to a very unsuspecting crowd. The night started off dabbling in some wonderfully off-color raunch from Mike T. But once the Experts began justifying certain school shootings and covering the secret history of the KKK, well... It was amazing. I'm fairly certain folks have learned that this is not a classroom resource. "Excplicit Tag" on this one more than usual. Special thanks to guests Dorian Gray, Rob Maher, Tommy Sinbazo, Mike Storck, Marc Unger, and Michael Ziccardi!

America! F-Yeah! We cover the history and cultureof this great nation of ours (and possibly yours)!

September 30th, 2012

Our first season finale! Thanks to all of you listeners, live and podcast, for making this show a hit! This episode kept on the trend of an unexpected theme, with religion and intolerance being tackled like a Miami quarterback. That happens a lot. The debates were heated like a domed stadium in January, which is a good idea. The metaphors were less strained than these. Check them out and see how we rounded out season one in style! Featuring Lance Bankerd, Matthew Casella, Ben Howarth, Justin Jones, Josh Latta, Heiko Spieker, Kevin White, and Michael Ziccardi!

Our fifth show was the Battle for the Planet of the Apes. It got strange, it got emotional a few times, and it ended with a finale of absolute awesomeness, featuring our first ever TIE! Unfortunately no computer can contain said finale, so it will be left in the minds and hearts of those there. Still, worth a listen for the rest of the amazing episode.
