Inside CNET Labs Podcast 62: The secret to scoring: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left...

In Episode 62 of ICL, we nerd out.

A young Jeff, nerding it out on at least three fronts. Jeff Sparkman

We have a very special guest this week, Mr. Jeff Sparkman. Jeff gained notoriety previously by being named CNET's nerdiest employee. Soon after, it was a fast life of drugs, women, and comic books. We discuss at least one of those subjects with him.

Also in this episode, we talk about fighting with the Vulcan nerve pinch, Dong getting beat up by a girl, and Eric crying like a baby while watching "The Lord of the Rings."

Tech this week, we take a look at Lucid's soon-to-be-released tech . Also, Dong schools us on using Windows Media Center as a DVR. Finally, what ICL podcast would be complete without more girl advice? We has it.
