  1. ALL CAPS: The Colin Episode

    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.

    “Loneliness is lonely.” Someone famous probably said that once… And so, Cap has once again violated the solo mission sanctity of ALL CAPS.

    Our illustrious, chromatic poddess (that’s short for “podcast goddess”) is joined by their oldest pal, and Nerdy Show/ Dungeons & Doritos cohort, Colin Peterson. Learn about formative childhood experiences at long gone roller rinks and ominous dreams. Hear Colin’s report on seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway. Experience visceral 30-something solidarity and surprising mood-altering substances.

    Taste the friendship! TASTE IT! (more…)

  2. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 63 :: Ultimate Best Friend Test

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    After taking a mental health month in July, the hosts catch us up on their respective goings-on. Nelson Lugo sings the praises of an anime hero with severely suppressed emotions, and Schaffer the Darklord details the 30+ hours he’s spent hunting down Montana-based religious zealots “for work.” Then, Schaffer challenges Lugo to a bad idea: a trivia contest about one another conducted by the boys’ partners! Indeed, Bunny Buxom and Lisa arrive in Studio #6C to quiz our hosts in the “Ultimate Best Friend Test,” a game in which incorrect answers are punished with electric shocks!

    Will Schaffer’s 0/3 losing streak finally end? Will Lugo pull off the most humiliating defeat yet? Will Lisa and Bunny be properly rewarded for the nonsense they have endured for years? Don’t answer these questions incorrectly or it’s *ZZZT!* for you in this month’s episode. (more…)

  3. State of the Empire :: Episode 59 :: Star Wars: Episode IX Leaks and the Phantom Menace of Fake News

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

    Filming for Star Wars: Episode IX has begun and already the leaks are pouring in… but can they be trusted? Sure, there’s some exciting and authentic on-set photos that have found their way onto the internet, but moreso there’s more fan theories and uninformed conjecture posing as “journalism” than ever before. Here on State of the Empire, we celebrate “looking for news in Alderaan places”, but our crackpot theories are always to be taken with a modicum of spice! Join us as we pick through an Ord Mantell-sized pile of garbage, dig up the sordid history of Star Wars fake news, and share what’s really going on with JJ Abrams’ forthcoming feature.

    We also discuss the possible focus of Jon Favreau’s forthcoming streaming live action Star Wars TV series, the ties it may have to The Clone Wars, our first takes on seeing the animated series Star Wars Resistance in action, an Original Trilogy era romance that came to Cap in a dream, and a tome of bygone Willow fandom on the deep web.
