  1. Nerdy Show :: David Byrne Shares True Stories From “True Stories”

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast is a polymath polymorph gestalt entity of all known geek knowledge.

    In this archival interview from 2018, Cap speaks with Talking Heads’ David Byrne about the Criterion Collection re-release of his 1986 film, True Stories and the first ever edition of that film’s complete soundtrack. The film was Byrne’s directorial debut and as it plainly puts it right at the start is “about a bunch of people in Virgil, Texas.”

    The film is part zany, slice of life comedy, part anthropological study – processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. Cap and Byrne discuss how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together and other unexpected art. (more…)

  4. Nerdy Show :: Get Off My Books

    Presently the production house known as Nerdy Show is in the midst of some massive movements. After the release of The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program series 2, Cap and Doug dove right into a new major project for Lightning Dogs (still TBA) – so, after a long day of recording stuff they can’t talk about quite yet, and no time to assemble a proper episode of Nerdy Show, they grabbed a friend and piled into the studio for a free-wheeling conversation to catch you up on things and hopefully entertain and delight.

    Who is this mystery friend? Cap and Doug are joined by Eleanor Edwards, co-host of Consequence Podcast Network‘s The Fifth Dimension: A Twilight Zone Podcast, and Cap’s partner of 16 years who’s been behind-the-scenes this entire time, but hasn’t truly graced us with her presence until now. Crazy! We discuss the new Twilight Zone, RoboCop, JFK erotica, and a host of other strange media and critical diversions into the life and times of the Nerdy Show crew. (more…)

    The wildly-swinging hits keep on coming! How far will we veer off of our usual platter of geeky chatter? And for how long? Indefinitely?! Well at the very least we’ll always stay true to what you’ve come to expect from us for the past decade: surreal tangents and strange comedy. In this episode – Cap, La Valle, and Doug team up for a creative experiment in which Cap plays a high-powered Hollywood executive type taking pitches from hapless writers.

    Which of these absurd ideas will get green lit for production? Whose hopes and dreams will get eaten alive by the Hollywood monster? How far will these poor saps go to break a tie and “win” this pitch party? (more…)

  7. ALL CAPS: Judy Funnie Meets Maude Lebowski

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings! Except when it doesn’t. Sometimes it mutates into something else for a hot minute, and this is one of those times.

    Join Cap on a solo mission as she gives hints to the latest happenings at The Nerdy Show Network, muse on the Network’s (and this show’s) 10th year of podcasting, share the ups and downs of kitten fostering, and highlight two amazing comics you should read: Gillen and Hans’s Die and Okorafor and Tana’s LaGuardia. But all that’s just a prelude to the main event!

    In preparation for an upcoming collaborative art project, Cap dusts off some fan fiction she wrote with Local-Shop in which their favorite pretentious art ladies of the 90s meet: Judy Funnie (from Nickelodeon/ Disney’s Doug) and Maude Lebowski (from The Big Lebowski). Indulge in Cap’s all too thorough knowledge of Doug continuity as we explore Judy’s undocumented time at Vole University and Maude’s continued interest in work that’s strongly vaginal. No, this isn’t slashfic, but hopefully the artsy fartsy feminist story therein won’t make you uncomfortable.
