  • Nerdy Show :: David Byrne Shares True Stories From “True Stories”

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast is a polymath polymorph gestalt entity of all known geek knowledge.

    In this archival interview from 2018, Cap speaks with Talking Heads’ David Byrne about the Criterion Collection re-release of his 1986 film, True Stories and the first ever edition of that film’s complete soundtrack. The film was Byrne’s directorial debut and as it plainly puts it right at the start is “about a bunch of people in Virgil, Texas.”

    The film is part zany, slice of life comedy, part anthropological study – processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. Cap and Byrne discuss how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together and other unexpected art. (more…)

    Beejay takes his place in the host seat once more for this newest volume of Now That’s What I Call Gay Life. Joining BeeJay for this conversation are Pat and Josh and they’ll discuss what they consider their “ideal” attractive person before they discuss times in their lives where they’ve let things slide for people who tend to fall on the more attractive side of the looks spectrum. Does this hot pass make us bad people or can a pair of pretty eyes sway even the hardest of hearts? Find out all of their stories in this new volume of Now That’s What I Call Gay Life!

  • EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 73 :: The Resocialization

    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.

    The Snarksters return – two months after its last “remote” episode and an astonishing seven months since its last “in-studio” episode. After both testing negative for Covid-19, hosts Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord reunite in the beautiful and spacious studio #6C to survey the damage done to our political discourse.

    Is Schaffer clinging to problematic language? Is Lugo harboring a secret addiction? Is anybody going to see the year 2021? These questions will be sent to the lab as we await results in this month’s episode. (more…)
