Hey nerds. It’s time to congregate over stimulating presentations and scintillating drink … from home.
The world wide phenomenon that is Nerd Nite took a bit of a break during the first year of the pandemic, but it’s back with four new nerd bosses.

Ross is happily employed at KPMG, so keep your noses clean, or he may suggest an audit, or a tax, or something…
