It's the Lighting Nerds! Your go-to source for slightly up-to-date lighting information!
In this episode:
We're still not dead yet!
Craig's back from Halsey, and Alex is done with his move. We're here to chew gum and make podcasts, and we're stock full of Juicy Fruit. Er, or something like that?
Since I know you're listening, hi, Drew!
Anyway, in this "ep":
It's the TWENTY-FIFTH EPISODE of Lighting Nerds! In this episode, we keep Alex around, joke (or do we??) about being corporate shills, and talk about festival lighting.
In this ep:
It's the one with Brad Schiller!
Fresh off the newly-reinstalled Silver Mac Tower of Audio is Episode 024 of The Lighting Nerds. In this "ep":
We've fixed our audio! Thanks to everyone who sent me pineapples, I really appreciate it.
Our title this time references electric toothbrushes, people...obviously...
In this episode:
Happy new year, everyone! Here's to the continuation of the show.
Does anybody read these? If any of you are reading this, shoot me a email / DM / tag me with "pineapple".
The Lighting Nerds! We're still around. Thanks so many to the many, many people who stepped up in to say that they'd be happy to host a show with me, it felt really good to find out that people still care and want to help. Introducing a new host who will be around (I hope!) a while, it's Alex! From Australia. You might know him as the guy who makes the Console Training videos on YouTube. He's also a Lighting Nerd.
In this episode, our first in several months:
Ed Sheeran tour. It's cool
MAC Encore line of LED fixtures from Martin.
GLP JDC1. Can we come up with a different name? Cool light, though.
And a very special tip of the hat to those who believe in nothing but still want holiday pay.
May one day people all over the world not just tolerate but celebrate different faiths and cultures, and have their greetings accepted in the spirit they were given, without fear of being mocked and laughed at by those who lack understanding.
Somewhat approaching a normal release schedule, I hereby...release a new episode. Wherein I bungle a movie reference. In this episode:
Remember when I said we'd be back soon? I lied. But Josh is back, and Gavin is not. It's Lighting Nerds, and we're still doing this! In this episode:
I'm back from LDI, Gavin is back from Europe and we're both seriously tossing around the idea of emigrating straight back to the shores of Britain! #election2016. In this episode:
Dear interwebs, we promise never to be away this long again. If two or more of us aren't available, we'll do an episode anyway. Maybe a short one, maybe a long one, maybe with a guest. But we'll stick to that two week (about) schedule from now on. Probably. Maybe. Also, new cohost with Craig today: say 'ello to Josh. Gavin will be back in November-ish.
In this, our pre-LDI episode, we talk about a lot of new lights! Chew on this:
Hot off the presses, it's a new episode of Lighting Nerds. We did this one right in the middle of being way distracted by houses, touring, and honey-do lists, and it shows a bit in the show. So uh, bear with us.
A permanent railing collapsed at a Snoop Dogg concert
It's tour season, and Gavin and I are on the road and subsequently exhausted. But we keep making this for you, because, well, that's what we do. Anyway. In this episode:
Thanks to the restorative powers of angry e-mails, we're back after a month hiatus! Whew! Let's get this show on the road!
We've got everything this week: Craig's crappy on-location audio, new lights, quizzes, we're like a week late, and more!

Boy howdy, I was late on that one. But your loss is our, uh, gain? Or something like that. Anyway. In this episode:
Hello lighting nerds! Sorry that this isn't the podcast, it's me telling you you're gonna have to wait until I can get this thing edited. Boo! Hiss! Deal wit it!
In this episode, Gavin admits some...personal shortcomings, namely, his obsession with tiny pieces of metal and glass that change the shape of a light beam. We're all here for you, Gavin.
An on-time episode! It's like Christmas in March! In this episode:
Geeze, enough with the late episodes, Craig! I was prepping a new rig and programming video and lighting alike and had two shows this weekend. Audio quality and editing skill in this episode: 6/10. Sorry. I'm on the road.
Anyway, Episode 010 is hot off the proverbial presses and it's low-key but high in content. And fiber.
We're back, 24 hours late this time because one of us - not saying who but his name rhymes with KAVIN - is cavorting about Europe, surrounded by history and country music fans.
In this episode:
Oh man, incandescent is back, and it's more efficient efficacious than ever, thanks to some MIT braniacs and the power of TEENY TINY THINGS.
In this episode:
Hi guys! I'm trying some new things with the audio levels, trying to keep stuff around where most other podcasts are. So maybe you'll notice some changes from previous episodes in terms of audio levels. Shouldn't be too big an inconvenience. I hope.
In this episode!
Holy cow, two days late this time? Shame on us. We had some audio issues, okay? OKAY?!?
Between having a nasty upper respiratory infection (just what you want when you're a podcaster) gigging over New Years, and moving to different houses, it's a wonder we're only fourteen hours late on this one. Anyway, fresh off the presses, it's Lighting Nerds, Episode 005 folks. In this edition:
The Robe Square. It's certainly, uh, square.
The Lumu Power light meter.
Dressing for success on corporate gigs. Protip: a ratty tshirt and cargo shorts won't do. Tsk tsk.
Craig and Gavin get super-nerdy about CRI. We mention the Munsell color system, here's the WP page on it.
Lighting term of the day: proscenium.
