Merry Christmas, Nerd-Fam! This week we’re having an almost Silent Night as we say our “Goodbyes” to 2018. Ify and Dani, back in her seat for hosting duties, discuss the quiet culture of ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. The duo talk about their triggers and what they do and do not like about the whispers and noises that give some people the tingles, including the potential medical benefits of the said sensations. Enjoy the Holiday season and kick back with your favorite nerds on this episode of Nerdificent!
