About Nerdwriter1

A self-described “weekly video essay series that puts ideas to work,” you might say that The Nerdwriter is about engineering—though not in the traditional sense of the word. Writer, editor, and host of the videos on his Nerdwriter1 YouTube channel, Evan Puschak is obsessed with how and why things gets made, and what makes them effective, meaningful, or just plain bad. He covers everything from art, music, and film to pop culture and politics, giving history, context, and explanations of process to shed light on topics like why “Rihanna’s ‘Work” Is Not Tropical House” or “Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban: Why It’s The Best.” The Nerdwriter is so thorough, by the end of a video it’s hard to argue with his highly-informed opinion.
