These Black Milwaukee nerds created a podcast for ‘people just like us.’ Now, they want

A Milwaukee podcast has a mission to establish a following of people that are proud recipients of a certain social label — Blerds, aka Black nerds.

The “Geekset” podcast discusses comics, anime, video games and professional wrestling like many other podcasts, except this group of Black men is holding conversations and producing content from a Blerd’s perspective. The show’s hosts define Blerds as anyone who loves nerdy culture but is Black — leading to a different perspective on nerd culture.

The group hopes to produce a documentary that is, in the words of one of the podcast’s creators, a “love letter” to Blerd culture.
