  1. Nerdy Show 282 :: My Farty Valentine

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

    Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but its pungent perfume lingers thick in the air. Whether you’ve got the post-V-Day blues or or are a regular polyamorous Poe Dameron – Nerdy Show has got the comedown you need: the robust voice of Flame On‘s Jarrod Pope. Join Cap, boR, Brandon, and Jarrod’s sumptuous pipes as they take a tumble with a plethora of pop culture.

    We give our first impressions on two recently-debuted comic book TV shows that are decidedly not about superheroes (Legion and Powerless), review the based-on-a-true-story(ish) medieval fantasy game, Nioh, and share our excitement for forthcoming projects like Adi Shankar and Warren Ellis’ Castlevania. But oh, dear listener, that’s far from all – we also call a 1-800 number to attempt to reactivate a webseries about Garfield and abuse Jarrod’s sexy voice with some nerdy pick-up line recommendations from your favorite lil’ stinker: Brandon.

  2. Nerdy Show Review: The LEGO Batman Movie

    nerdyshow281_5When 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.

    Hear our spoiler-free LEGO Batman Movie review! Will Arnett’s brooding and hilariously self-absorbed Batman returns in a send-up to every incarnation of the caped crusader and his ginormous gallery of villains. It’s a pleasant departure from the grimdark Batmen of recent films and, like The LEGO Movie before it, is a non-stop pop culture explosion for all ages.

    Join Cap and Doug for a frank discussion of the highs and ho-hums of the film. Can this spin-off stack up to its predecessor? Will Billy Dee Williams finally get his moment as Two-Face? And… if everything is awesome, is there such a thing as too much awesome? These and many other inter-locking questions will be confronted in this movie Microsode! (more…)

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

    The time has come to unpack all the new info on the Nintendo Switch, the Big N’s hybrid console/ portable system that’s simultaneously turning heads and plaming faces. For all the cool, quirky games and features the system has to offer, a lot of baggage comes with this new venture. And while, yes, we’re going to dig through this baggage like the TSA, the hosts of Nerdy Show are also cautious about the forthcoming scourge of bathroom gaming to come. This isn’t your personal handheld – this is a console meant to be shared, so you’d better pick up some of our patent-pending Switch Wipes!

  8. Nerdy Show Microsode: The Films of Takashi Miike

    the films of takashi miikeWhen 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 this listener-requested episode we discuss the prolific Japanese director, Takashi Miike. Known best perhaps as a master of combining horrific gore and comedy, Miike’s career spans and fuses all genres – from children’s films to period pieces – and takes viewers into exciting new places just as often as he takes them to uncomfortable territory. Perhaps you’ve caught his acclaimed (and often censored) Ichi the Killer or maybe his live action adaptation of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, but with nearly 100 films to his name, chances are, there’s more to Miike than you know.

    In this episode, Cap is joined by Jonathan and Andrew of Wicked Anime and Stevo of Friday Night Fanfiction to share their favorite films and provide an introduction to his work whether you’re a longtime fan or only just getting familiar. (more…)

    Enjoy the refreshing taste of Nerdy Show! We got some oddball gifts this holiday season, and some of them were edible, so of course we subject ourselves to these curious (and horrifying) delights for your listening pleasure. Inappropriately flavored sodas (none of the coconut) and strange candy await you, but that’s far from all.

    The year-end gifts keep on coming, with holiday adventures, surreal Reddit spam, and time to decompress and play some video games. After last episode, everyone in the crew is now hooked on Final Fantasy XV. Thanks to fan instruction we also learn about two surreal indie games and discover a Chinese film that bootlegs our favorite games and breaks our brain.

    Drink responsibly! (more…)
