Nerd Nite for April 11, 2020

Nerd Nite is Back Online!

NERRRRRRDS! Things are weird right now. Really weird. So please let us put a little consistent nerdery in your life. That’s right, it’s Nerd Nite Online! PART 2: Nerd Nite Strikes Back. This Saturday, April 11, at 6:30pm, join two Nerd Nite Juggernauts for the sequels of some absolute all-time favorite presentations. Just check out this lineup:

“The Law of Star Wars Strikes Back” by Thomas Harper (at 6:30pm)

Summary: Star Wars: Most sane people watch it for the epic lightsaber duels, space battles, and (obviously) Baby Yoda. But have you ever wondered whether Han Solo was legally justified to shoot first, or if the Mandalorian could lawfully go around disintegrating bounties?  Probably not, but join Army JAG attorney Major Thomas Harper as he returns to Nerd Nite DC to break down all the most important legal issues from the galaxy far far away.
Bio: Thomas Harper is a massive Star Wars fan who also happens to be an Army JAG attorney. When he isn’t attempting to reenact A Few Good Men, Thomas blogs and podcasts for The Legal Geeks, where he uses Star Wars to teach about legal topics. He regularly shares his love of Star Wars on the national stage, and has presented at San Diego Comic Con, Star Wars Celebration, WonderCon, and DragonCon.

“More of Your COVID 19 Questions Answered” by Taylor Winkleman (at 7:15pm)
Bio: In addition to being 100% “that know-it-all bitch” (it says this on her PhD), Dr. Taylor Winkleman is a veterinarian and global health security expert who moonlights as a writer and is developing a science-based podcast with her scientist friends. (Check out her podcast here!) And Saturday, she’s putting her disease expertise to good use once again: yours!

Saturday, April 11. 6:30pm. On Zoom, right from our homepage.
We will never stop Nerding.
