  1. Nerdy Show 296 :: The Hunker Games

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

    We survived Hurricane Irma! Venture to the “dirty side of the storm” and thrill as we describe all our first world inconveniences of sassy trees, migratory bird flight plans, power outages, and copious hunkering. It turns out while we were keeping clear of windows and raking endlessly, some cool media came out. Hear our thoughts on Seth MacFarlane’s spin on Star Trek and Galaxy Quest, The Orville. We also explore how Stephen King’s IT measures up against the classic, Tim Curry-fronted 1990 miniseries and discuss what we can do about un-cancelling Dark Matter.

    So crack open a can of escargot, boot up your Richard Dawkins simulator, and HUNKER DOWN with this episode of Nerdy Show. (more…)

  2. Nerdy Show Interview: Chamber Band – Time Traveling Through 36 Questions & Governor’s Square

    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.

    Chamber Band have made it their mission to emotionally disarm you while exploring beloved nerd worlds. In their debut record, Deities, they cheekily adventured through Dungeons & Dragons, in Careers they braved The Hunger Games, and now in Governor’s Square they’re taking on H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine and The Invisible Man. However, in all cases it’s best you check your preconceived notions before venturing further. Love, loss, and existential but infinitely relatable quandaries await you – and with those universal themes, captivating music. This is no mere fanfiction; Chamber Band cuts their source material to the core.

    Join Cap and vocalists/ songwriters Chris Littler and Ellen Winter as they explore the new record and how it fuses two beloved sci-fi classics into one potent narrative. But that’s far from all Chamber Band has been up to – they’re the writers behind the podcast smash-hit 36 Questions! Hear about how this musical/ audio drama hybrid came to be, the challenges of drastically changing up both formats, and getting props from the creator of Hamilton. We also debut a new track and unleash an unheard rarity from the archives. (more…)

After we cross the spoiler wall you’re going to want to have seen all of the series or the strange desire to be even more confused than the average Peaks fan.

    This summer we took a vacation, more of a road trip really – we spent more time than expected in Las Vegas and middle-of-nowhere North Dakota, but most importantly we returned to a small town in Washington where strange things happen. It was a wild ride; one that we could never have predicted, and now that it’s over we need to decompress. Cap is joined by Peaks-pal, Consequence of Sound‘s Mike Roffman, for a support group-like unpacking of all the mirth and horrors we’ve witnessed.
