What happens when esteemed comic book creator Jackson Lanzing plays Game Master to an intrepid space exploration crew in a completely original science fiction role-playing game? VAST! Lanzing guides two crews through the sprawling universe of VAST, navigating this space opera with countless unique stories to tell.

Alpha Book Club

When the book club finishes a title, you get to help decide the next one! Previous titles read on Alpha Book Club include American Gods, A Wrinkle In Time, 1984, Ready Player One, The Gunslinger, and more!

Sagas of sundry: dread

Turn down the lights and turn up the campfire audio because you're about to experience Dread, an original macabre tale. Hosted by Ivan Van Norman, mong this delicate atmosphere is the ultimate twist: cast members Matthew Mercer, Satine Phoenix, Amy Vorpahl, Taliesin Jaffe, and Amy Dallen are playing a giant puzzle game while the story develops, and you don't want to know what happens if it collapses.

The S.P.A.A.C.E. program

Science fiction stories often take place here on Earth, but many times they traverse the galaxy to various planets and unfamiliar locales. Nerdist’s Science Editor (and host of Because Science!) Kyle Hill takes us on a journey of exploration to these famous locations and gives us a look at them through the lens of real world science.

Talks Machina

Talks Machina is the official Critical Role after/talk show hosted by writer and friend of the Critical Role cast, Brian Wayne Foster. The show features a unique and completely fan-centered format, with cast members, fans, and celebrity guests breaking down the previous week's episode. Plus, you can win exclusive/limited edition Critical Role merchandise or a chance to ask your burning questions to the cast!

Watch Your Language

Comedy, wordplay, hip-hop... this show has it all! Through a mixture of live and pre-taped segments, comedian/rapper Zach Sherwin ("Epic Rap Battles") examines the world around him and meets audiences at the intersection of funny, relevant, and super smart word-nerdery with Watch Your Language!

Welcome to the Shadow Zone

Finally famous enough to have his own show, Onyx discusses horror films and video games, and interviews family members, neighborhood adversaries, and celebrity guests. The best part? It's all from Onyx's "unique" perspective.

Get all the access without any of the hassle. Alpha members will get special member invites to Nerdist and Geek & Sundry events at conventions like SDCC, PAX West, GenCon, and also smaller, more exclusive community events in your own backyard.
