Check out these amazing “AVERAGE JOE” t-shirts

wehavetshirts

Use the T-Shirt button above or click RIGHT HERE to head to the Zazzle store.

Just the first of many, these t-shirts are made to order in our zazzle store and feature 2 designs, one more classic looking, another more cartoony and are customizable for your taste.Basic version starts at 15.95, and discount codes are usually available right on the site.

Big thanks to Diana Davis for help with the classic version of the shirt, helping me get the image, and in both designs I received feedback from her, and Nerdrahtio contributors Tom and Dave.

Zazzle does the printing and set the cost. I do get a small portion (less than $1.75, actual amount varies per shirt) It’s a very small amount, and I actually could not set it lower than I did on the site. My goal is not to make a net profit, just to be closer to breaking even on the site. That portion will be used to cover audio hosting, website fees, as well as cover expenses already put toward the site (and due to some issues when switching to the Nerdrahtio name at the end of last year, expenses where much more than usual.)

Thanks for checking it out, these will be available indefinitely on our zazzle store, but that doesn’t mean you should wait. Zazzle usual as a special of some sort going, take advantage it if you dig the shirt.  Got feedback ? comment below, or hit us up @ nerdrahtio@gmail.com

INVICTA CHALLENGE: A kickstarter with a goal of leadership, and 4 horseman figures on the path to it.

blueboardN

Tom and I (Sam) Got a chance to talk with Jim Murphy about his ongoing kickstarter: INVICTA challenge.  Jim was happy to share a wealth of information with us. The kickstarter itself is already detailed well, and the passion is obvious, but getting behind the ideas even further sold us on the product.   You can listen via Itunes or Stitcher (using our drop down menu above) or directly below for your convenience.

The Key item is a package that gets you into the game, designed to be a multigeneratioal game, able to suck in even relectunt readers, by combining interactive story telling via graphic novel and a free app based game, along with a tangible figure of the Hero. Fans not interested in the game for themselves, might be for their kids, but if you want to go after the figure only, Jim has added that option for you! So you can have the first ever millitary figure sculpted by the 4 horseman starting at only 20$  Jay from Moderately Geeky pitched that Idea, and Jim has shown to be response to fan feedback!

Nerdrahtio (and Tom Brooks) Interviews Josh Blaylock about Operation Nemesis and some Joe talk and even more!

operationnemesisThe Legendary Tom Brooks from Reasonably Intelligent Ramblings joined us as we interviewed Devils Due founder Josh Blaylock. We first discuss his new book, Operation Nemesis, the most serious thing we have ever talked about Nerdrahtio. You could read me review HERE, but as a reminder, it’s about a real genocide, real revenge, real war, and real court room drama, with Nazi’s, religious conflict and more.
