WhatNerd is for nerds, by nerds. We launched in March 2019 as a site that covers everything about the nerd lifestyle and entertainment: TV, movies, games, health, food and drink, and more.

Our goal is to explore the depth and breadth of various nerdy outlets, and help you navigate the world of nerdism. Stick with us and you’ll expand your tastes, discover new delights, and deepen your love for the nerdy things you already appreciate.

We aren’t afraid to share our minds, but we take care that everything we say has been thought through. We believe nuanced positions are more interesting than blind fanaticism, and that’s what we try to live by in our writing. We also hope to learn as much from you in return, so reach out and talk to us! Let us know when we’re wrong, but be nice about it.
