  1. Nerdy Show Book Club :: Episode 14 :: A Handmade Tail

    From the pages of Nerdy Show – it’s Nerdy Show Book Club! In these literary episodes, we share what we’re currently reading, do dramatic readings from the best and worst nerd literature, talk with notable geek authors, and discuss a book we’ve read along with the community.

    As we brace ourselves for our forthcoming dissection of the disturbingly relevant Handmaid’s Tale, we first divert into greener and more peculiar pastures by talking about the other things we’ve read. Join Cap, Denika, Brandon, and Jess as they unload on a wide expanse of literary explorations. Discover a genre specifically about faeries being dicks, explore the world of video game translation and The Legend of Zelda to a point of fascinating minutia, learn what’s the opposite of Death Note, and gird your loins for the Funky Pickle.

  2. Nerdy Show 297 :: The Orville Vs. Star Trek: Discovery

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

    This season of television you’ve got choices when deciding where to boldly go. Option A: Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville; a Galaxy Quest-style, Roddenberry-fueled sci-fi comedy. Option B: Star Trek: Discovery; a darker slice of Trek set in the new movie continuity. Option C: BOTH?!

    Join Cap, boR, Trench, and Doug as we weigh the pros and cons of both series. The very fact that we have two high-caliber, space-faring shows at once after such a long time without anything Trek-flavored is hitting us with one heck of a displacement wave! We also review Blade Runner 2049, the long-lost SNES title Star Fox 2, and discuss the confusing news surrounding MegaBots, peculiar home archeology, and more! (more…)

  3. Nerdy Show Interview: Careless Juja and the World Tour That Wasn’t

    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.

    VGM is a strange genre. For starters, it’s a genre consisting almost exclusively of covering other people’s music – but the difference between a random band covering a random song and Video Game Music is substantial. VGM focuses on rearrangement of music, sometimes drastically so; often uplifting the source material to previously unrealized heights. So quality VGM is a very special thing – for lovers of video games and instrumental compositions alike. Even more special is the rare occasion of there being a VGM supergroup, rarer still when in this Internet-based culture such an act actually gathers perform to a live audience. That’s Careless Juja for you – a high level, shiny Pokémon appearing when you least expect it.

    Carelss Juja are Careless (Random Encounter, co-creator of Liberty), YouTube VGM sensation, The Great Juja, and a cadre of talented musicians bringing songs you love to life as you’ve never heard before. Nerdy Show‘s Cap and boR caught up with the band on the eve of the final performance of their world tour… Or not. Hear a very sleep-deprived Careless Juja elaborate on the preposterous goal of faking a world tour live album in less than 24 hours, and turning what was supposed to be a vacation into a complicated concert event. We also share tracks and tales from this (alleged) World Tour Live Album, and the final Random Encounter release. (more…)

  4. 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…)

  5. 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…)

    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.
