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

    We’re on the road! And you might be too! Incept your commute by driving along with us driving and recapping our adventures at NC Comicon and beyond.

    Cap, Tony, and Doug share their highlights from North Carolina Comicon, Bull City in Durham, NC – the Willow 30th anniversary event, the Lightning Dogs, the pals, the panels, and the wretchedly delightful late nights of bad movies. What’s more, it’s been a while since this particular trio has been the spotlight of a Nerdy Show episode, so we delve into our latest life happenings.

    We discuss quality films of old to counteract the recap of terrible VHS feature Fugitive X: Innocent Target, share massive life changes, and peek behind the curtain of The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program series 2. (more…)

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

    Enter a vortex of horror and existential crisis. We sink our fangs into Netflix’s spoopier recent series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the second season of Castlevania. Hear us extol the nerd nuances that have Cap, boR, and Brandon drinking deeply from these series’ black chalices. We also discuss the shocking return of Adult Swim’s bastard child, 12 Oz Mouse, Star Trek: Lower Decks, a forthcoming animated series about the nobodies of the Federation fleet, and invite you to invest in our pitch for a haunted house experience like no other – one that distills the cold, unfeeling universe into one terrifying (and psychically crippling) walk-through.

  3. Nerdy Show 317 :: The Boy Who Pooped on a Mountain

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

    Brandon has returned from his trip to Scotland. Did our resident renegade glean any culture while on his first trip overseas? We’re not 100% sure, but he definitely left his mark: he pooped on a mountain! Well, more like a hill; but you have to understand, Floridian standards for elevated landmasses are a bit out of whack. Hear tales of enchanted gastrointestinal distress, fried pizza, castles, and, yes: birds.

    We also discuss camping at Camp Crystal Lake (the video game kind) with Friday the 13th: The Game, MMO woes, the continuing saga of Adventure Time, and other flotsam from the ocean of nerdy pop culture. (more…)

It’s a drastically different experience guaranteed to make you liquefy with jealousy and set the horror hounds a-barkin’.

    Our anorak tentacles have crept across the world: Spain, Hungary, Switzerland, soon Scotland… We’re not sure why this is the year we’ve all blown about like dandelion fluff, but, for as long as that lasts our travelogues will keep on coming. John and Chrystal’s Nihon nightmares (that’s intentional nightmares – they had a great time) are but one component of this week’s podcast adventure. Cap shares their entry into the Venture Bros. Carvel cake contest and discusses new horizons in taking back the web for the users, boR shares a spoiler-free exploration of The Good Place… there’s lots crammed into this particular and peculiar podcast.

  5. Nerdy Show 315 :: Age & Beauty: Life-Extension Drugs and Staying Young at Heart

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

    Engineered obsolescence: that’s what the human body is. It kicks alotta ass and then gets slower, brittler, and much harder to drive. Surely us nerds of the 21st century must’ve found some way to brain ourselves out of this? Well… turns out we have!

    Join Cap, boR, Jon, and Tony as we test out the latest life-extension drugs, brainstorm the sci-fi benefits of custom-engineered organoids, and stay young at heart with rousing discussions on the new Spider-Man game, the animated series The Dragon Prince, and get excited about surprise television adaptations of Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and Alan Wake, as well as introduce Talking Heads frontman David Byrne to Rule 34?! Yeah – that’s actually a thing that happens – hear a short clip from Cap’s forthcoming interview with the legendary musician about his film True Stories, where we drop some carnal Internet knowledge.

We’ve taken some long, strange trips and some deep sips of cultures not our own and the results are… mixed at best. boR shares the shockingly unsavory details of his trip to Spain while Trench elaborates on New Jersey frustrations. Meanwhile, in Orlando, Cap and Brandon are enjoying curious Chinese cheese-topped teas and British tea parties was well as the refined tastes of the XXX French edutainment cartoon, PeePooDo and the Super Fuck Friends.

    It’s lonely in the void, so Cap’s reaching out to get touched… by someone. Yes, the lines are open and your chromatic operator is doing an AMA the old fashioned way: with telephones. There’s no telling what’ll happen – including surprise guest appearances! Cap gets a turducken-themed song challenge from Marc With a C, chats with amazing illustrator and new Lightning Dogs collaborator, Kempo Cornelius, hears about Kyle Bunnell (aka Krondor Krew’s Shinobi MC)’s new 5th Ed.

    Brace yourselves for a re-CAP of all the podcastery whatnot Cap has been up to. A Willow vision quest turns into philosophical musings on pop culture obsession. Will curiosity kill the Cap? Can their insatiable lust for knowledge ever be sated? Is progesterone all it’s cracked up to be? Is forever friendship a fiction or fact? All-consuming questions abound before giving way to an exploration of the deep sea subway adventures of Splatoon 2‘s Octo Expansion and Cap’s two clams about the dynamic and peculiar world of Inklings and Octolings.

  10. ALL CAPS: The Aquabats! Super Show! N€€d$ Right€ou$ Comrad€$

    PREVIOUSLY! ON NERDY SHOW… The gang had a good laugh about skeleton soup. But enough of that. Let’s get serious… SERIOUSLY AWESOME.

    In lieu of a regularly scheduled episode, you’re getting an over-indulgence of your host with the most, Cap. It’s no surprise they’ve got a lot of things on their mind, but there’s one thing of paramount importance. The fate of the world might hang in the balance: The Return of The Aquabats! Super Show!

    It’s a super rad television show about America’s hardest working superhero band – totes appropes for kids and lounge lizards alike. It’s not like anything else on TV, and that’s why Big TV slammed its gold-ringed hand and exiled Super Show to Nowheresville. But there’s a chance, friends. A chance that if enough Righteous Comrades band together and sacrifice their piggybanks to the altar of Crowdfundius, the Greek god of hopes and dreams, that The Aquabats might have a super-successful Kickstarter that’ll bring back the greatest show since sliced bread AND make some dope records too!

    So… long story short… Cap talks about that. And also fills you in on what Nerdy Show is up to behind the scenes. (more…)
