  • Willow Watch :: The Road to Willow 2

    Welcome to Willow Watch! A podcast dedicated to the 1988 Lucasfilm fantasy epic Willow – In which breaking news comes in all sizes, and obsessive fandom is the greatest magic of all.

    Willow Watch has been a reoccurring feature since our Star Wars podcast, State of the the Empire, began in 2012 – when Disney bought Lucasfilm and we first asked: does… that mean there could be more Willow? Over the years we’ve learned that the answer is an emphatic “YES!” Not only do we want it, not only do the cult film’s myriad fans want it, but the stars and the director want it too. Now, just in time for Willow‘s 30th anniversary, director Ron Howard has returned to Lucasfilm with Solo: A Star Wars Story, he’s working again with Warwick Davis, AND he’s admitted that there could be more Willow on the way. THE BONES HAVE SPOKEN!

    In celebration of Willow‘s 30th anniversary and this momentous news, throughout 2018 we’re doing a series of Willow Watch specials. First up, we’re recounting the past 6 years of Willow rumors and discoveries, archiving the best of our Willow Watch segments embedded in State of the Empire. In this episode we’ve chronicled the long road to the hypothetical “Willow 2” – from the tongue-in-cheek speculation to the barrage of legitimate rumors and hearsay that have culminated in this uncanny moment where dreams and fate have intertwined!

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

    Moogfest is a festival unlike any other. One part TED Talk, one part that record you discovered in college that blew your mind; the event’s dual focus of Future Thought and Future Sound has made it a beacon for discerning artists, festivalgoers… and Nerdy Show for six years running.

    During the day, theatres, classrooms, and workspaces are filled with lectures and workshops led by artificial intelligence scientists, synthesizer engineers, musicians, and even galvanizing social figures like Chelsea Manning. By night, Durham, North Carolina, becomes a cyberpunk music festival – robot-accompanied bands, A Clockwork Orange-esque montages, stages resplendent in synths and patch cables. Join Cap, Jon, and Flame On!‘s Bryan on their overnight drive back to Orlando, recounting their electrifying weekend at the nerdiest festival in the world. (more…)

So, when we got a listener request to talk about Iron Chef – naturally we wanted to do far more than talk about the beloved Japanese cooking contest… we wanted to actually do it. Unfortunately our eyes were bigger than our stomach.

    Hear Cap, Jon, and Chrystal share plans for a “Adamantium Chef” a video series likely too crazy to see the light of day. Share some stories about Iron Chef and the anime it’s influenced, and recount our latest food adventures. (more…)

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

    Our present is the future – and the future is a beautiful pandemonium of science so surreal that even the strangest jokes can come true.

    Like what, you ask? Tesla coils at a hockey game, vitamins for frogs flavored like bugs, swarms of drones foiling the FBI, squid beak meta-material being used to make bras. Which of those are real and which of those are Nerdy Show discussions gone awry? Find out when Cap, boR, Jon, and Nicky team up and go peculiar as they recount their latest adventures and the weird “sci” that’s not necessarily “fi”. boR tries out the HTC Vive Pro to see if it lives up to his superhuman eyeball needs and looses himself in Accounting +.

    Solo is almost here and we’re placing bets on where this still very unpredictable story is going to take us.

  • Nerdy Show Microsode: Mario Paint and Beyond – 90s Creative Games with Jazzy Boho

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

    Once upon a time there was a short-lived era of gaming based specifically around empowering the user to create. The era of Mario Paint – a console game that came with a mouse, explained how to interface with your VCR, and had full illustration, music, and animation suites… all for the Super Nintendo. It’s the best-known, but it wasn’t alone.

    In this episode, Cap, Brandon, and Jon team up with Fangamer’s Jazzy Boho to discuss the obscure genre of creative games. These “games” blurred the lines between children’s entertainment and art applications and were made to empower users with tools only limited by their imagination and ingenuity. We share stories of software both awful and awesome from the era of 90s gaming when just about anything was possible. Their day may be done, but the legacy lives on! Jazzy is an avant-garde animator who uses Mario Paint in ways heretofore unknown to humankind – she shares some of the secrets of making her surreal and hilarious videos as well as some other retro tools of the trade.
