Microsodes are short episodes typically about 15 to twenty minutes in length, although they occasionally go longer. The topics are usually chosen by listeners who win them by participating in the Nerdy Show Support Drive. Sometimes Microsodes topics can be stacked via additional support to make them longer. These discussions are not limited to a particular Nerdy Show Network podcast, though they are most often handled by Nerdy Show.
This concept evolved out of "Minisodes" which were an episode variety used early in Nerdy Show Season 4. The episodes were intended to be shorter than the average length shows during that time. Eventually this designation was discarded because the final episodes were seldom short in length.
