Two Nerds and a Guy From Long Island is a bi-weekly comedy podcast that was borne from the attempts of Ricky and Dirk, two life-long proto-nerd friends, to desperately explain the geekier sides of life to their native Long Island pal, Dave.

Unable to persuade Théoden, Saruman now tries to sway Gandalf, not realizing his former underling has gotten a promotion and executive sponsorship for his project since the last time they touched base.
