Mardi Gras is here, and it's a major part of the culture in New Orleans. This episode examines the intersection of Mardi Gras and nerd culture with the stewards of the biggest nerd parade in town. They share some of the history and new features of Chewbacchus. And whether you've lived here, always wanted to visit, or never even heard of any of this, this should be an illuminating episode.
