  2. Nerdy Show Microsode: European RPG Video Games

    When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

    Where you’re from greatly influences who you are – especially so when it comes to creative output. So it should be no surprise that for indie game studios out of Eastern Europe, the stories they tell and the games they make are distinctly different from the usual faire: games like Metro 2033, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Gothic, and others.

    Cap, Trench, Arkais, Luke, and Tony explore their favorite titles in the often overlooked, sometimes obscure, and always fascinating world of European RPG video games. We look for what makes these games decidedly different (outside of a lack of major corporate funding), discuss the books that inspired them, share our personal highs and lows, and, of course, spend plenty of time talking about the best known title of them all, The Witcher.

  5. Nerdy Show Interview: Aquapocalypse Now – Jeffrey Morris Unveils Oceanus

    When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

    We’ve had an influx of cool, thought-provoking sci-fi films lately, but few of them have had much integrity when it comes to the “science” in “science fiction”. Fortunately, we know a guy who’s on a quest to change all that. Meet Jeffrey Morris, head of FutureDude Entertainment, and the writer/ director of the upcoming film, Oceanus. With Oceanus, Morris is creating a near-future world of deep sea exploration, moon bases, and asteroid mining; advised by such science luminaries as Neil DeGrasse-Tyson… and then he’s setting that world on fire – literally.

    With the surface of the world consumed by catastrophe, the only remaining bastion of human civilization on Earth is the sea base, Oceanus. The film will explore that gleaming science city beneath the waves as the apocalypse sends it into disarray; and then the advantageous director is launching a 10-part TV miniseries to continue the story. Along for the ride is legendary Star Trek writer D.C. Fontana and Fringe and The Wire‘s Lance Reddick. Cap and Jess have been granted exclusive access to the feature film script and are joined by Morris for a revealing exploration of this unprecedented undersea adventure series, his sci-fi influences, the science that makes the show tick, and how this exciting and expansive project came to be!

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    In December 2016, EPIC PIEcast celebrated the release of its 50th episode by going on hiatus, while the show’s hosts embarked on an excellent adventure through time. Today, in April 2017, DOC EMMETT LUGO and MARTY McSCHAFFER have arrived at their time machine’s coordinates: FOUR MONTHS INTO THE FUTURE!
