Season 4 Episode 3 :: Drinkin’ Juice With My Home Bears
Oh snap! This episode was recorded in early December, but daaaaamn. Ish was effed up! That Gummiberry Juice got us krunked, yo! We’ve been bouncin’ off the walls ’round here ain’t nothin’ slowin us down! Well, except then we ran out of Gummiberry Juice and that Grammi Gummi stopped coughin’ up the good stuff. I’m gonna level with ya… Nerdy Show did things we ain’t proud of. Plenty more we can’t even remember. Suffice it to say that piecing this beast together was the least of our concerns when Dunwyn’s finest started knockin’ on our door.
That said- here it is! Episode 3 of Season 4. We did things a bit differently. To make sure you get your regularly scheduled Nerdy Show safe and sound via your iTunes subscription- we released the segments over a few days. So now we bring you the full “classic-style” Drinkin’ Juice With My Home Bears. Seriously, guys… Don’t be a menace to Gummi Glen, they’ve been through enough.

Superman is the granddaddy of the superhero game, but people don’t like him any more – what gives? We talk about the arguments against Supes, and then get into what’s makes him so great RIGHT NOW. Yes, we’re in the midst of a Superman renaissance and there’s some cool shit goin’ on that you need to know about. J.M.S’s Super successes and failings, Lex Luthor getting his own awesome comic… find out how cool the original cape has become. Plus what’s cool in the world of Spider-Man spin-offs, and what the Internet thnks about the Green Lantern movie.
Next, in sci-tech, things get cosmic. One of our most intense sci-tech segments ever. First we get into over arsenic life, the little microbial lifeforms that went on to be high rollers in out Top 20 Nerdy Things of 2010. Then things spiral into nerd violence as Jon, Hex, and Brain get into a science fight over the Drake Equation. The secrets that lurk in the darkness of space can drive men mad, and give them Space AIDS.
