THE LATEST FROM THE NERDY SHOW NETWORK

  • Nerdy Show 306 :: Looong Looong Nerds

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

    After vacations, business trips, interviews, conventions, and other mayhem – Nerdy Show‘s hosts are back in the studio catching up with each other and what’s been going down in the nerd world.

    And… also… catch up with what the Japanese already know a lot about: dramatic and surreal on-going commercial narratives. Did you know that for over a decade an alien has been impersonating Tommy Lee Jones, drinking canned coffee, and doing everyman jobs in Nippon? Did you know that NO ONE can resist a looong, looong maaaan? Did you know that Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Giles may have started this entire phenomenon? That’s not even half of it! We talk God of War, Lost in Space, Ready Player One, Pacific Rim 2, and give our two credits on everything worth doing in the past month of nerd stuff. (more…)

  • State of the Empire :: Episode 52 :: Interview Archives: Julian Glover, Daniel Logan, Jeremy Bulloch, Ben Burtt & More!

    State of the Empire is a Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    Did you know that, like the films, this podcast also has a prequel era? Before State of the Empire, before Lucasfilm was bought by Disney, Cap and co. did a number of interviews with Star Wars personalities. In this episode, we’re dusting off the data cores and revisiting a long time ago, in a podcast far, far away.

    We speak with BOTH Boba Fetts: the original man behind the mask, Jeremy Bulloch, and young Boba, Daniel Logan – discussing Bulloch’s favorite roles outside Star Wars and Logan’s carrying of the Fett mantle beyond the prequel films. The venerable Julian Glover (aka Empire Strikes Back‘s General Veers and Last Crusade‘s Walter Donovan) discusses what might have been after his victory on Hoth. Legendary sound designer, Ben Burtt shares, the secrets of the “black hole”. And last, but definitely not least, we hang out with three of the key players in bringing Jabba the Hutt to life:
    Jabba’s right-hand man, Dave Barclay, his left-hand man, Toby Philpott, and the guy behind the Hutt’s sultry figure and gorgeous eyes – John Coppinger. These revered puppeteers also share stories from working on classics like The Dark Crystal, The Fifth Element, and Little Shop of Horrors. (more…)

  • Nerdy Show Interview: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness with Tom Waltz and Erik Burnham

    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.

    Mutagen Man, Wyrm, The Pizza Thrower, The Utroms, Cudley the Cowlick… The Ninja Turtles are super weird. Awesomely unusual. IDW TMNT writers Tom Waltz and Erik Burnham are joined by Nerdy Show‘s Cap to celebrate the legacy of Ninja Turtles and the series’ myriad mutations across all continuities.

  • State of the Empire :: Episode 51 :: We’ve Got a Good Feeling About This! The Solo Official Trailer & Denny’s Solo Menu

    State of the Empire is a Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    There’s a lot to #Solobrate right now. We’ve got a new Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer and in Denny’s across America, galactic gourmands can treasure the taste of the the inner rim.

    But are these Co-Reactor Pancakes drizzled with as many shocking revelations about the forthcoming film as the juicy new tidbits from the trailer? What even is a “co-reactor”? Surely these edible tributes to the exploits of Han, Chewie, and Lando have some Star Wars secrets smuggled into them. We review Denny’s entire six-course feast du Solo, dissect the latest trailer, and dig deep into the new movie’s marketing and merchandising for character reveals and clues of what’s to come. We’re still braced for disaster, but like Han said, we’ve got a good feeling about this. (more…)

  • Nerdy Show Interview: Christy Karacas’ Ballmastrz: 9009

    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.

    In the distant future there is only THE GAME. Do you have what it takes to pulverize all the other mutants, magical girls, cyborgs, and wasteoidz? Can you master the ballz?

    Enter: Ballmastrz: 9009, the new Adult Swim series from Superjail‘s Christy Karacas. Whereas Superjail‘s animation drank deep from the acid-laced waters of 60s and 70s Western animation, this new series pulls heavy from the anime well. But of course, that’s not all. There’s also Jodorowsky, giallo films, every dystopian sports project ever, and other peculiar pop culture ephemera in the mix. Join Cap for a conversation with Karacas about his anime influences, the possible future of Superjail, and how Ballmastrz is different from anything he’s done before.  (more…)
