Dangerous Military Nerds was created by Military Veteran and comic/film artist Gerry Kissell in 2011 for fellow military veterans who were also nerds. The new show is hosted by author, UFO researcher, retired Police Detective, and Military Veteran Don Ecker & Gerry Kissell. Don and Gerry, along with their panel of fellow Veterans and military veteran family members, discuss the latest Entertainment news, conduct interviews with military members, scientists, and entertainment, and review films, television shows, and books.
