Excellent Detect Nerd profile in the Columbia Tribune

Thank you to Aarik Danielsen for the very thoughtful and accurate profile of Detect Nerd. And check out Dani Mondloch's great photos, too!

"Detect Nerd is casting a benevolent spell on Columbia... Forged around common interests — namely, Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop games — the local collective takes its preoccupations public. Detect Nerd hosts live-streamed campaigns, movie meet-ups and in-person events that, to hear its founders' descriptions, take the form of a real-time trust fall, involving a delightful alchemy of storytelling, improv comedy and community-building."
