  1. Introducing Omniverse – Nerdy Show’s Next Evolution Puts a Focus on Audio Fiction

    For the past decade, The Nerdy Show Network has been a cult sensation in the podcast world. We pioneered the hybridization of roleplaying games and audio drama, brought listeners on some of the strangest audio journeys imaginable, and celebrated the media we love across every niche genre. Of all the projects we’ve worked on, our biggest successes have always been our original narrative programming, and as creators that work has always been the most fulfilling. Today we enter an exciting new era – putting our focus on audio fiction like never before. Introducing Omniverse. (more…)

  2. Nerdy Show :: FINAL BOSS – The Top 20 Nerdy Things of 2017

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings – and in this case all the greatest geeky happenings of the year!

    It’s the Top 20 Nerdy Things of 2017 – our annual list that does the the impossible (and highly unnecessary) task of summarizing the year in orders of geekitude. Our list turns a discerning eye to all corners of human endeavor – from every medium of pop culture to scientific discoveries – and ranks them on a completely arbitrary and unscientific scale.

    Join Cap, boR, Trench, and Brandon as this manic year comes to an equally manic crescendo. When gauging “nerdiness” there’s always plenty of surprises – this year is no different including past winners that returned to dazzle us again, and a shocking wealth of so, so, so many gloriously good television shows. Grab some latkes and join us for this feast of likes. (more…)

From sci-fi short films to WWE wrestling, and tech innovations to must-read comics; 2016 was actually a pretty great year for geek happenings. (more…)

    top20_16The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings – and in this case all the greatest geeky happenings of the year!

    We’re not going to beat around the bush, 2016 has been a mess. But in spite of tragedies, loss, and injustice aplenty, there’s been some spectacular achievements and innovations; from high science, to the most popcorn of pop culture, and everything in-between. That‘s what our annual Top 20 Nerdy Things list is all about: counting down the best, geekiest people, places, achievements, media, and more that the year has to offer and ranking them with the only measurement of any relevance left on this forsaken rock: nerdiness.

    Join Cap and Jess along with a rotating cast of faces from around The Nerdy Show Network (Doug, Jon, Brandon, Aaron, La Valle, Oral, Max, and Briggs) as we cast arbitrary and subjective judgements on topical geekitudes. We share all the deets and feels on what made this collection of cultural oddities shine amidst this bleak year, say goodbye to our favorite celebrities, and even award a few superlatives to some fine specimens that didn’t make the Top 20 cut.

    If you find yourself lost and looking for meaning, these tremendously awesome happenings just might restore your faith in humanity. (more…)

  5. Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast – Out Now!


    The time has finally come! Once again, The Lightning Dogs are unleashed! Back in 2013 we accidentally brainstormed a hybrid of all our favorite 80s and 90s cartoons and sci-fi during an episode of Nerdy Show. The result was a would-be animated series about anthropomorphic dogs from another world, trapped on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Armed with special powers and tearing through the Wasteland in their battle-ready vehicles, they combat the evil Glampire’s minions and keep his vampiric reach from extending to the stars.

    Sounds pretty cool, right? Well, we weren’t the only ones who thought so. As soon as this episode came out, fans demanded more, and we found ourselves in the unique position of having captured the spark of an amazing idea at its birth, and the opportunity to document the entire journey. Journey to what? Why an actual animated series, of course.

    Over the years we’ve recorded all of our sessions of character creation, world building, and general brainstorming of the LightningDogs universe, releasing some of them as episodes of Nerdy Show – but now we’ve launched Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast! We’ve re-released our original episodes in a new documentary format and in this on-going series we’re continuing to chronicle Lightning Dogs‘ creation every other Monday.

  9. Remembering Drew: Make Him the First LGBT Star Wars Movie Character

    As an Orlando-based outlet, the massacre at Pulse deeply affected all of us here at Nerdy Show. Now one of our own is staging a campaign of remembrance that’s heartfelt and nerdy in the biggest way possible.

    You may know Drew Leinonen either as a Star Wars-obsessed guest voice on Flame On! our all-gay, all-geek podcast, or, heartbreakingly, the Pulse victim who was buried alongside his husband-to-be Juan Guerrero. If you want to learn more about him, he was recently memorialized on an episode of Flame On! in a very raw, personal recording just a day after the tragedy. Now, Drew’s best friend, and former Flame On! co-host Joshua Yehl aka The Question, has started a campaign to immortalize Drew as the first on-screen LGBT Star Wars movie character.

    As Joshua says, “I know it’s a long shot, but hey – never tell me the odds.”

    Here’s the first steps to ushering Drew’s memory into the Star Wars holocron for all time:
    Sign the petition, share it everywhere you can, and fill the net with #PutDrewInStarWars

  10. No Fangs T-Shirts Are Back!

    no fangsTired of the “cool kids” trying to convince you or your friends that being a werewolf, vampire, or lagoon goon is “totally rad”? There’s only one answer to those creeps: just say, “NO FANGS!”

    No Fangs is America’s #1 social outreach organization for inhuman awareness and transformation prevention. Sure, Twilight might make it seem sexy to be a creature of the night, but the consequences are beyond dire. There’s no zipper on those Halloween costumes.

    The No Fangs Initiative is made up of community leaders, cryptid survivors, and celebrities speaking out against the nefarious intentions of these paranormal predators. The Wolf Dads are out there, guys. We love comedy here at Nerdy Show, but this is no laughing matter. Will you join No Fangs and Nerdy Show not just in October, but all year round, to spread awareness and give kids the courage to just say… “NO FANGS”? Pick up an awesome No Fangs t-shirt today and support the cause! (more…)
