Episode 010 :: Geek Mythology
The stars have aligned over geekdom and the ancient world has returned. Between God of War III rocking video game land and Clash of the Titans once again gracing the silver screen, this week is shaping up to be one of mythological proportions. This Nerdy Show celebrates the adventure, revelry, inter-species lovemaking, and big sausage pizzas that make Greek/Roman mythology so much fun. Let’s face it, those cultures may have been milestones in art, culture, and human progress, but they were really freakin’ weird.
We also speak to two outstanding and innovative individuals whom we met at MegaCon. First is Brandon Davis, a professional robot battler with impeccable fashion sense, and then we get in-depth with puppet and animatronics master, Dave Barclay, who’s been a part of Return of the Jedi, Dark Crystal, and Little Shop of Horrors, to name but a few of his crowning achievements.
Ancient mysteries and mirth abound! Learn how to turn into a swan and pick up chicks! It’s all here.
