Hey, everyone! Thanks for checking out our Patreon page.

That Kind of Nerd was created by CJ Mellon and Brian Thornton. Along with our friend Josh Burns, we create two weekly podcasts about nerd culture.

We are taking back the word “nerd”, which we don't consider a negative moniker in any way. Rather, we nerds are subject matter experts in a myriad of fields, certainly not confined to the "typical" comic books, movies, or technology


Nerd - /nərd/  noun 
A PERSON WITH A DESIRE TO CONSUME ALL KNOWLEDGE ABOUT A TOPIC AND A PASSION TO SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH THE WORLD.


We started That Kind of Nerd with our friends as a way to reach out to other nerds and create a community.

  • That Kind of Nerd Podcast
That Kind of Nerd Podcast started out as a podcast where Brian and CJ could talk to their friends about whatever was on our minds or going on in the world of nerd culture. Josh Burns joined the team and made us much more focused on talking about the topics that matter the most to you. New episodes of That Kind of Nerd Podcast go up every Monday on iTunesStitcherGoogle Play Music and our Website. We do reviews of the latest comic books, films, TV Shows. We have discussions on fun and interesting technology developments and much more. Every month we showcase the “Blockbuster” where we give our gut reactions to what movies are coming to a theatre near you.
Want to get started? We have created an introduction page to help ease you into our show. 
Intro to That Kind of Nerd's Podcast

  • Why do you need help?
We love making fresh and original content for you to enjoy. We have asked friends to come and join our team. They willingly give their time to spark conversations with fine people such as yourselves without asking for a dime.

We made a promise to our friends if they joined our team we would do everything in our power to compensate their time, energy and creativity. We think that is only fair.

The reality of it is, to be blunt, we can't continue without your support. We don't like cramming our website with ads or having sponsors you don't care about on our podcast. We also want to grow and expand to new projects. We're always talking about new ideas that we just don't have the time or resources to accomplish right now. We have ideas for new shows, we want to work with local comic-book shops, start doing YouTube Videos and much more. You can help those concepts become a reality!

  • What's In It For Me?
We have some great rewards to offer you, and we wanted to keep them at an extremely affordable price. The tiers start at just one dollar per month with additional rewards for those of you who give more.

When this all started, we never thought it would grow into what it has become. It is because of all of our fans we want to continue on this journey. Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our Patreon page and for supporting That Kind of Nerd!

Goals
1% complete
In 2012 CJ and Brian were talking about the Disney movie “Wreck-It Ralph”
It was during this discussion CJ made an outrageous statement. Even after the success of “Wreck-It Ralph” there is no chance of a sequel. Brian (knowing how stupid this was) issued a slap bet. If there was a sequel to this movie he can slap CJ has hard as he can. CJ took the bet and after 5 years of thinking he was in the clear, Disney has officially announced “Wreck-It Ralph 2”
If we reach our goal we have some big plans
1. We will live stream the slap
2. We will release a limited edition “CJ Slap” T-Shirt
3. Josh will match what is donated.
