Convention Nerds

Currently on hiatus as of 2021.

CONVENTION NERDS is an hour-long weekly show on Wasabi Anime’s Twitch hosted by noted convention personalities Tom Croom and Ken “Joey Snackpants” Nabbe. Each week they delve into the culture of anime, comic, gaming and “geek” events by offering a platform for a variety of diverse and informative perspectives. Hear from show runners, fellow fans and others embedded in the trenches of your favorite cons as they share their viewpoints and experiences about this unique facet of fandom. The show is broadcast live on Twitch so that viewers can submit questions and join the conversation in the chat during the stream

Live episodes stream Tuesday nights at 8:30 PM Eastern Time Zone. Afterwards (typically two week later) the episode posts as an audio podcast on Apple, Google, iHeart Radio, Spotify and Stitcher with the video version appearing on Wasabi Anime’s Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.
