This week’s Geek of the Week, supergenius Jodi Chromey, stops by the studio for a choreographed ‘Pinky Tuscadero hand jive’ with Nancy and to chat about her career as a writer. Jodi initially claimed to be more “nerd” than “geek”, but after talking about her former life as a tech writer and then admitting to her love of Fonzie, her past blogs about Dawson’s Creek and cataloging her Sweet Valley High books as a child, it became obvious that we had chosen a true geek.
Jodi began writing her blog, I Will Dare, in 2000. Aside from her own blog, I Will Dare, Jodi is the editor for Minnesota Reads and is the mastermind behind paulwesterberg.net.
In this podcast, Jodi offers up advice on becoming a writer while giving us a brief glimpse into what inspires her (peanut butter and gin!), which begs the question, how did it take us this long to invite Jodi to be our Geek of the Week?
