Nerd Nite Madison: The adventures of Alcibiades

Teddy de Groot spiels on the best and/or most unscrupulous Athenian ever.

In a video recorded at last month’s edition of Nerd Nite Madison, UW-Madison grad student Teddy de Groot takes us on a frenzied and fittingly profane journey through the life of Alcibiades, a singular figure who punched, double-crossed, and screwed his way across classical Greece. The next Nerd Nite Madison takes place this Wednesday, April 29 at the High Noon Saloon. Video shot and edited by Nicholas Ritz, audio recorded by Joel Shanahan.
