  1. Nerdy Show 293 :: Escape from Ape-Catraz

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

    Something genuinely strange has happened friends. There was once a age where summer blockbusters were a popcorn-munching escapist’s paradise of awesome stories coupled with dazzling effects. But those days were long past, plots got dumber, and quality films became few and far between… Until now. Against all odds, summer 2017 has hit hard with stellar films. Films that are critically acclaimed, artfully crafted, and explosive in the effects department. In this episode we share our awe and wonderment with Spider-Man Homecoming and War For the Planet of the Apes. But that’s not all.

    Join Cap, boR, Tony, and Brandon as we explore not only our summertime film habits, but the amazing TV we’ve seen too including the new Warren Ellis-penned Castlevania on Netflix, cartoons we’ve caught up on, and other treats from the small screen. Plus: Brandon’s Apes notes he scrawled in the darkened theatre, a few good books, and the Splatoon-fueled debate of cake vs. ice cream. (more…)

  2. Nerdy Show Interview: 40 Years of Cerebus the Aardvark with Gerhard

    When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

    Cap celebrates 40 years of a comic book milestone: Cerebus the Aardvark. It’s an independent comic that took the world by storm, changed the industry forever, and broke bold new ground with its hilarious and heart-rending story. The series was written and drawn by Dave Sim with background artist, Gerhard. Together they chronicled the life of this ill-fated aardvark with Sim drawing the characters and Gerhard anchoring the cartoon animal into immaculately rendered environments.

    This archival HeroesCon panel is a one-on-one conversation with Gerhard as Cap learns about the artists’ collaborative process in creating the longest-running indie comic of all-time, how to ditch school but still get some book learnin’, and breaking beyond the background with Gerhard’s new project, The Smile of the Absent Cat, written by Grant Morrison for Heavy Metal.

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

    In the era of fake news, no quadrant of the galaxy is safe from mind tricks. Yes, State of the Empire is your wacky, zany source for absurd rumors, but if we smell bantha poodoo, you’d better believe we’re gonna call it out so you don’t step in it. So forget all you know… or think you know about the Han Solo film and Lord and Miller’s firing. Let Cap, Doug and Matt set you straight.

    The summer is already off to a breakneck start for both pop culture and your beloved hosts. Hosts like boR, Nicky, Jon, and… what was that other one? They used to be on the show quite a bit… oh, Cap! Our fearless leader has returned from their travels hither and thither and brought with them eclectic tales.

  7. Nerdy Show Microsode: Cracking Open The Dresden Files

    When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

    When it comes to series that deal with magic and folklore, some of the most provocative stories are set in modern times: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Harry Potter… and one other cornerstone of that genre that somehow we’ve never talked about on Nerdy Show: Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files. The novels, the comics, the roleplaying game, even the much-maligned TV show are home to a plethora of paranormal pantheons and all sorts of exciting spins on popular myths.

    This episode is both a spoiler-free starter-kit for the uninitiated and a walk down memory lane for those eagerly awaiting book 16. Join Dresden-philes Trench, Luke, and Arkais along with total uninitiated novice, Cap, as we explore what sets Butcher’s world apart from its contemporaries, our favorite characters and villains, and all the tie-in media.

  9. Nerdy Show Microsode: Console Clunkers & Spoofing Star Wars with Palette-Swap Ninja

    When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews…

    And this episode is BOTH those things! Cap and Brandon are joined by Palette-Swap Ninja, an obscure nerd band that recently made a big splash when they combined two pillars of 20th century pop culture into one unbelievable concept album. Dan Amrich is a game journalist turned Ubisoft community developer and Jude Kelley is a research scientist who repairs old arcade machines. With our collective powers combined, we’re unleashing a nerd podcast of an unrepellable magnitude.

    First up, we take on the listener-requested topic: failed video game consoles. We’ve all seen our fair share of pie-in-the-sky, crazy flops in the ever-ongoing console wars, but Dan’s career in game journalism grants him a special perspective. In the mid-90s at outlets like Flux and GamePro he was witnessing some of the legendary travesties – including the notorious Virtual Boy. We dissect and debate just what makes a “failed” game console and get stories from Dan and Jude’s deep game nerd backgrounds, then we dive into the incredible project they’ve spent the last 5+ years working on: Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ immortal classic, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band – this seamless, record-length parody tells the entire story of A New Hope. (more…)
