In comic book mythology, an origin story is an account that reveals how a character gained their powers and the circumstances under which they became a protagonist or antagonist. In nerd culture, every person has an origin story that set them down the path of being a lifelong nerd. These are their stories.
In this nerdy origin story, we interrogate Eat Sleep Nerd host Christian James about his nerdy background. He tells us about how Mortal Kombat formed his first nerdy memory, how he developed his love for marching band and drum corps, and how he discovered photography.
