  2. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 51 :: Back From the Future

    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! Now the boys must scramble to catch up on a quarter year’s worth of pop culture news and horrifying political developments in this bewildering future world.

    Has Lugo’s enthusiasm for Batman been compromised? Is Schaffer marking out for professional wrestling? Have our heroes landed in the darkest timeline? These questions will be asked as our time-traveling tramps struggle to make sense of strange new realities in this month’s episode. (more…)

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings!

  6. Nerdy Show Microsode: Thrilling Tales of Science Fantasy with Matt D. Wilson

    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.

    In-between hard sci-fi and hard fantasy lies a land where robots and unicorns play; so holster your laser pistol and put the spurs to your dragon, ’cause in this episode we’re exploring the ill-defined expanse of science fantasy. This genre is home to critically-important pillars of pop culture like Star Wars and basically every super hero universe, but where’s the dividing line? At what point is advanced technology that’s like magic actually magic?

    To help answer this question, Cap, Jess, and Flame On!‘s Bryan are joined by Matt D. Wilson – author and co-host of comics podcast War Rocket Ajax. We share our favorite examples of science fantasy from across all mediums, discover some surprising candidates, and explore sub genres of the sub genre. We also discuss Matt’s current Kickstarter project to fund his new comic: Everything Will Be Okay – a satire about every conceivable apocalypse happening at once. But… is it science fantasy…? Discover the answer within! (more…)

  7. Nerdy Show Interview: 15 Years of Donnie Darko With Richard Kelly

    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.

    Donnie Darko is one of the greatest cult films of all time and a defining moment in 21st century cinema. It’s a love letter to outcasts, anyone who grew up in the 1980s, and fans of the finest thought-provoking horror and sci-fi. For its 15th anniversary, the film is getting re-released on the big screen in a new 4K edition, and we’re thrilled to commemorate the occasion by speaking with writer/ director Richard Kelly.

    Join Cap and Consequence of Sound Editor-in-Chief, Michael Roffman as they look back on the cultural impact of the film and time travel to Kelly’s past; making cheese plates for Madonna and filming unapproved musical sequences. We gain metaphysical insights into the mysterious links between Donnie Darko and Kelly’s other films (Southland Tales and The Box), get hints a projects still to come, and discuss the music that defined the era. Plus Cap and Mike delve deep into the nature of nostalgia, their action figure collecting pasts, and much more. (more…)

  8. Flame On :: Episode 148 :: Sina Grace is Self Obsessed

    fo_logo_1400x1400Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture!

    You’ve known his work on Burn the Orphanage and Not My Bag, and you may have even heard that he’s the writer behind the first ever Iceman solo series, but did you know that our guest, Sina Grace, is Self Obsessed? His new web series, Self Obsessed, is out now and Bryan and BeeJay are finding out everything about it. (You can watch all five episodes on his YouTube channel!)

    Before we dig into Self Obsessed, Sina tells the boys all about what’s been going on in his life including some upcoming works including Nothing Lasts Forever, his comic memoir chronicling his journey through career highs, emotional lows, and a mysterious illness. Then Sina gives us the behind the scenes stories about who, what, why, and how this season of Self Obsessed got made.

    We also dive deeper into Sina’s other works including Persian Version, which has run into issues with PayPal due to unwarranted bias based on the word, “Persian”. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Flame ON! interview if we didn’t talk about DICK… as in The Nine Weirdest Dicks I’ve Sucked – a true story webzine where he talks about exactly that.
