Nerd Nite is like the backyard wrestling version of TED. Each month three intellectual obsessives lead the audience through topics culled from the ivory towers of academia and the weird basements of geekdom. This January enjoy "How to be Good: Overcoming Unconscious Bias (with some help from Aristotle)" by Dr. Gina Helfrich, "Sex, Murder, and Magic in 17th Century France: The Affair of the Poisons" by Marianna Symeonides and "Sound's Good To Me!" by Tim Fitzgerald.
