Once upon a time, a boss noted that, for a nerd, Patrick Hester still managed to ‘function’ within society – hence was born: The Functional Nerd.

an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit: a computer nerd.

Functional Nerds is the podcast from author/blogger Patrick Hester and author/teacher Tracy Townsend focusing on science fiction and fantasy media: television, film, comics, and new media such as fan films, audio dramas, online animated comics and more, technology, gadgets and all things Apple as well as music and the occasional video game.
