Hosted by long time friends Tyler R Lee, Josh Forrester, and Brock Parsons, The Nerd Cult is an entertaining, informative, and funny podcast about all the nerdy and geeky things the hosts and their listeners love. But, who are the hosts of the cult?
Tyler - Born and raised in Oklahoma, Tyler has always been interested in geek and nerd culture. Preferring to read and play video games than weather the evil, outside world, he quickly grew to love everything about books, comics, games, and so on. After receiving his Bachelor's in English/Literature (where he met fellow podcasters Josh and Brock), he began freelance writing for video games, film, and literature, as well as writing and publishing his first novel, An Unlikely Company. Get to know Tyler in all his geeky awkwardness through his Twitter, @_TylerRLee_

Brock - Born in Tecumseh, Oklahoma. Brock and fellow podcaster Josh attended the same district from Kindergarten through college, forging a friendship once they shared a hallway in our college dorms. He graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in English from East Central University in Ada, OK, focusing on the creative writing spectrum. As of now, Brock works at a medical supply company, delivering and repairing equipment, and juggles roughly 1000 hobbies in his free-time. As the podcast shows, Brocks main interests are literature, films, video games, experimental and mainstream photography, tech of all sorts, and travel. Above all, his favorite genres over all forms of media are typically sci-fi, horror, and surrealism. To be succinct, Brock likes the weird.
