  2. Nerdy Show Interview: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness with Tom Waltz and Erik Burnham

    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.

    Mutagen Man, Wyrm, The Pizza Thrower, The Utroms, Cudley the Cowlick… The Ninja Turtles are super weird. Awesomely unusual. IDW TMNT writers Tom Waltz and Erik Burnham are joined by Nerdy Show‘s Cap to celebrate the legacy of Ninja Turtles and the series’ myriad mutations across all continuities. They play with action figures, thumb through old roleplaying books, and sift through the sewer of way cool mutants.

    Hear the story of how Donatello’s perceived “death” in the comics upset parents and turned Waltz’s life upside down, the joys of being both a fan AND a creator, and why we’ve never seen the Turtles‘ movies’ Master Tatsu in the comics. (more…)

  3. Nerdy Show Interview: Christy Karacas’ Ballmastrz: 9009

    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.

    In the distant future there is only THE GAME. Do you have what it takes to pulverize all the other mutants, magical girls, cyborgs, and wasteoidz? Can you master the ballz?

    Enter: Ballmastrz: 9009, the new Adult Swim series from Superjail‘s Christy Karacas. Whereas Superjail‘s animation drank deep from the acid-laced waters of 60s and 70s Western animation, this new series pulls heavy from the anime well. But of course, that’s not all. There’s also Jodorowsky, giallo films, every dystopian sports project ever, and other peculiar pop culture ephemera in the mix. Join Cap for a conversation with Karacas about his anime influences, the possible future of Superjail, and how Ballmastrz is different from anything he’s done before.  (more…)

    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.

    These simultaneous creators, artists, and fans discuss TMNT history; such as how the IDW series, now the longest running Ninja Turtles comic ever, came to be. And they also tease tales to come – such as some insider info on Nickeodeon’s upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the return of the John Woo-inspired book, Bodycount, and Eastman and Bishop’s new indie comic, Drawing Blood. We also discuss personal favorite TMNT video games, Waltz and Bishop’s TMNT origin stories, and much more. (more…)

  5. Nerdy Show Microsode: Independent Sci-Fi / Fantasy Publishing with Alyson Grauer

    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.

    Here at Nerdy Show, we know how to make our stories come to life by taking matters into our own hands with audio dramas and comic books… but what about books? That’s right, prose – sentences, paragraphs, chapters – strung into bound volumes be they physical or digital; how do you break into that scene?

    To help us solve this quandary, Cap and Bad Storytellers / Ghostbusters: Resurrection‘s Josh LaForge are joined by Alyson Grauer of the RPG podcast Warda. She’s got experiences to share about breaking into independent sci-fi / fantasy publishing, in both novels and short stories, along with advice on leveling up your writing game and her personal tale of social networking her way to print.

  6. Nerdy Show 304 :: Peculiar Science – A Wrinkle in Time Review + More!

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

    There IS such thing as a tesseract. A notion we take for granted here in the 21st century, but one that in 1962 made some waves – especially when it was the central focus of a children’s book. Madeline L’Engle’s sci-fi classic, A Wrinkle in Time, for all its hard sci-fi mixed with metaphysical fantasy, has been near-impossible to adapt in its 50+ years – but can the full weight of Disney’s special effects budget and the powers of Oprah finally make some science magic happen? We’ve got opinions! And that’s not all!

    Join Cap, Trench, boR, and Jon as we discuss sci-fi anime and TV you may have already watched, odd films you might not have, and some baffling new explorations in science: VR murder in the court room, vortexes on Jupiter, and Alexa laughing manically when she hears a ghost. (more…)

  7. Nerdy Show Microsode: Westerns

    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.

    What makes a “Western”? Is it the arid landscape of 1800s America? Is it the hats? Or is it something more? …Some kind of “true grit”, if you will, that gets into the boots of a story and chafes at the characters’ collective psyches? In this listener-requested Microsode we might not be able to provide answers to the Big Questions in this Big Country, but we’ll certainly dole out as many musings as we can muster.

    Join Cap and 2/3rds of the Ghostbusters: Resurrection cast: Doug, Briggs, La Forge, and Poole for a rootin’ tootin’ travelogue through the world of Westerns. We’ve got advice on where to start if you want to dive into the genre, some off-kilter observations, and advice on what to watch in every era that spurs have hit the silver screen. (more…)

  8. Nerdy Show 303 :: As Mute As It Gets

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

    Time to get serious folks. Sometimes a single piece of pop culture sweeps in and sidelines an entire discussion – brushing aside all the idle chatter of the latest video game whatnot, ill-advised parody erotica, and dreams of a virtual future where theme park rides never die. Yeah, that stuff is here too. But mostly in this episode we talk about Duncan Jones’ sci-fi film, Mute.

    Join Cap, boR, Brandon, and NeoFaust as they discuss why this sidestep sequel to Moon is one of the most cyberpunk stories to make it to film. But all is not well in the neon-drenched streets of near-future Berlin: though luminaries like legendary author William Gibson love it, Mute is getting gutted in the reviews. We share spoiler-free highs and lows of the movie and take the toxic climate of online criticism to task. There might not be hacking, razorgirls, and explosions, but if you’re looking for a seedy underbelly to skulk in while wearing mirrorshades, well… this might be the film you’re looking for. (more…)

  9. Nerdy Show Review: Black Panther – Spoiler Free!

    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.

    A story of birthright, colonialism, isolationism, empowerment, and oh yeah… superheroes, Black Panther is a big step for the Marvel Cinematic Universe into a wider world. Join boR and Cap for a bite-sized and spoiler-free review that gives you the feels without the reveals. We discuss how Black Panther makes some key changes to the Marvel movie formula, where the film (and the format) falter, and where it breaks bold new ground. (more…)

  10. Nerdy Show 302 :: Monsters, Rockets, & Necropants

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

    From far away lands, near Earth orbit, and the gutters of the Internet, we’re sourcing the finest semi-organic nuanced discussions on all things nerdy. Cap, boR, Brandon and Jess are hunting monsters, breeding monsters, and reminiscing about ranching monsters with the new games Monster Hunter World and Monster Breeder. We also dial up an old pal for his debut appearance on Nerdy Show: long time listener, first time caller, Ice Abyzz – the Icelandic fan who’s now a cast member of the acclaimed audio drama, The White Vault.

    We talk to Ice about his upcoming trip to NYC to do a live recording of the show, opening for The NoSleep Podcast, and also get the skinny on the hottest Icelandic fashion trend: necropants. Cap and Brandon took a co-op trip to parts unknown in Mario Odyssey, and meanwhile Jess was living it up on yet another Japanese vacation. Plus we softly and delicately bite into the Lady Doritos controversy and then get explosive about SpaceX’s grand geek gesture with the Falcon Heavy test flight. (more…)
