Nerd Nite 054 (free)

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

It would be easy for a series of talks from self-declared nerds to devolve into nerd-culture nostalgia, but thankfully a deep bench of Madisonians who are highly credentialed and/or deeply obsessed with hyper-specific subjects keeps the local edition of Nerd Nite consistently populated with one or two curveballs every time it comes back around. Madison's first Nerd Nite of 2018 features a biology PhD student's view of polygamy versus monogamy, a look behind the scenes of air traffic control from an audiobook narrator, and an in-depth lesson on the Talmud from an atheist. That said, we think these talks could get weirder. Where is primer on ghost hunting within the steam tunnels running beneath the UW-Madison campus? Where is the hydroponic hop farm tutorial? This knowledge must exist. Step forward, people. —Mark Riechers
