Dave introduces himself and The Word Nerds.
The show is rated PG-13, but will sometimes be R, because it is about the actual language people speak.
The word 'nerd' is explicated in a hopefully not-too-nerdy way. 'Geek' is geekily explained, and 'dweeb' is glanced at as only a dweeb could do.
Rude word of the week: suck.
Music: 'Mistakable Mr. Smith' by Ten Story Relapse (Note: contrary to what is said in the 'cast, Ten Story Relapse DOES have a CD for sale on their website. Check it out!)
'Blow Me' by Kick the Cat

(This is the second time this podcast was posted. It has a new file name, and improved ID3 tag. Hopefully it can be downloaded as a new podcast.)
Dave muses about the concept of the Word Nerds podcast; Howard S. loses his iPod and takes it as an opportunity; the trio of Word Nerds (Dave S., Howard S., Howard C.) is introduced; and Dave thinks about what it means to be not only overwhelmed, but also whelmed.

Welcome to The Word Nerds!
Dave Shepherd introduces the three Word Nerds: Dave, Howard Shepherd, and Howard Chang. The Nerds explore everyday use of the English language and language change.
Every week the podcast features a Rude Word of the Week, and it showcases new music by independent artists. Usually about a half-hour, usually uploaded by Sunday midnight. Website: thewordnerds.org.
