Hosted by nerdy indie musician, Marc With a C, The Real Congregation ran on The nerdy Show Network from 2011-2014. The show was branded as "a journey into one record geek’s music collection" where Marc would find "the best songs that you’ve never heard before, haven’t heard in quite some time, and in some cases – you’ll never want to hear it again." Real Congregation featured insightful discussion centered around the episode's playlist; as well as the occasional themed shows and special guests. The series is known for Marc's in-depth exploration of lesser-known 20th century musical history and segments such as "Strange Records of the Week" and "The Journey". It was the second outside podcast added to The Nerdy Show Network.

"Season 1" on WPRKEdit

From 2009-2010 The Real Congregation was a radio show at Orlando/Winter Park’s 91.5 WPRK FM. This period is sometimes referred to as "Season 1". For a time, Season 1 was downloadable via the original Real Congregation site (http://therealcongregation.com/) however that website is now defunct.

The Fake CongregationEdit

It's a faaaake!

Occasionally, Nerdy Show's Cap filled in for Marc. When he did, the show became "The Fake Congregation". The agenda is the same: eclectic, weird, and or cool music – some you might like, some you might never want to hear again, albeit with Cap's personal tastes. Much like The Real Congregation, episode format consists of either random playlists with insight into each track, or topic-focused/ conceptual playlists and often features "Strange Records of the Week" and unusual sound clips after the formal episode has ended. A notable original segment of The Fake Congregation is "MP3 Roulette".
