Episode 290 :: American Nerds

  • over 1 year ago

In the realm of nerd podcasting, some older powerhouses are fading away, while others are gaining power through new followers. They'll do whatever it takes to entertain you and stay fresh in your mind. Dive into this crazy world with only boR, Brandon, Doug, and Denika as your guides into the world of American Nerds! With little to no explanation as to why, you'll embark on a mission to the sun, play a few rounds of Gwent, wrestle small Japanese robots, team up with Wonder Woman, discuss Neil Gaiman's American Gods, teach you about dental hygine, and most likely stumble down many other unforeseen paths along the way! https://nerdyshow.com/2017/06/nerdy-show-290-american-nerds/

Episode 122 – Okay, Bye!

  • over 3 years ago

Now that we are a part of the seedy resupply element entering Yeenoghu’s terrible town, the gang has to do their best to blend in. We look great. Our gnoll impressions are spot on. Nothing can go wrong. Probably. I mean, it is an evil town of evil people so even if things go correctly, …

Episode 21 – Tu Vuo Fa Il Ruolista (at Stratagemma, Florence)

  • over 1 year ago

After the long serie of Nephilim episodes, I needed, and maybe so did you, a little light episode. Let's say a couple random encounters and a couple songs. While recently in Florence for a weekend, I decided that I should check the local tabletop RPG store. After googling the area, I happened upon a very … Continue reading Episode 21 – Tu Vuo Fa Il Ruolista (at Stratagemma, Florence)

Episode 20 (Part 1) – Nephilim with Mira, Willem & Rob

  • over 1 year ago

Nephilim, is one of my all time favourite game. I hope this episode will make you want to have a go yourself at playing those immortal beings condemned, since the fall of Atlantis, into possessing live human beings through the ages, to be trapped in random archaeological trinkets or to dissolve in the magical fields. Thanks … Continue reading Episode 20 (Part 1) – Nephilim with Mira, Willem & Rob

Episode 255 :: Nerdcasting the Multiverse

  • over 2 years ago

When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into the super-specific with listener-requested discussions and interviews. But then on rare occasions... something much more unusual happens... We're no strangers to strangeness. We've encountered real-life werewolves, experienced hauntings and close encounters; but admittedly it's been a while since we've tangled with the paranormal. Turns out the paranormal isn't done tangling with us. Our studio equipment is picking up signals from someplace... else. Fortunately we've got a spirit box to tune in, and what we found will shock you. Join Cap, Doug, boR, and Tony as we listen in on other realities and discover if our geeky programming is truly the finest in the multiverse. Learn dark truths on Greetings from Twilight Gulch, hear the most inoffensive words imaginable on Safe Words, stay vigilant in humanity's war with the Lizard Men on Scale Watchers, discover unique new foods on Quinowhaaaaa?, get sound advice from The No Fangs Radio Hour, and even listen in on a Nerdy Show from a much darker timeline. Journey with us to a new dimension in podcasting! For links and more info, head to the main episode page: http://nerdyshow.com/2016/03/multiverse/

Nerdcasting the Multiverse: Thanksgiving Special

  • almost 2 years ago

When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into the super-specific with listener-requested discussions and interviews. But then on rare occasions… something much more unusual happens… What we know as "reality" is just a thin barrier covering an infinite multiverse of parallel worlds. Many scientists agree on this theory, but we have proof. Earlier this year, we discovered a rift that allowed us to hear other realities. Tuning our dials into that strange abyss of alternate broadcasts was a fascinating adventure AND it was free entertainment! Who are we to pass up a bargain? 'Tis the season, after all. Remarkably enough, our holidays are mirrored in these other worlds; so as you're prepping to gorge yourselves and/or camp out in front of a big box store, we invite you to discover the looming threat of the Reptilian conspiracy targeting both Thanksgiving, and the scared treats of Easter on Scale Watchers. Learn cooking tips from the dumpster (Sole Food) and the unknown (Quinowhaaaaa?), or kick Thanksgiving to the curb and celebrate a new holiday coming straight from the Underground: Conquest Day. Don't touch that dial (we wouldn't want you to experience quantum displacement) and Happy Thanksgiving!

Episode 14 – Parental Advisory Required In Nomine Satanis Magna Veritas (with July)

  • about 2 years ago

  Sorry for the slight delay with this episode. It involved a lot of editing (by the way the generous Patreon supporters will have access to the whole "unedited" four hours of Actual Play). As mentioned in the intro, this episode is a bit of an exception due to its "adult" content. When I started … Continue reading Episode 14 – Parental Advisory Required In Nomine Satanis Magna Veritas (with July)

Episode 16 – Boldly Going Star Trek with Chris, John & Dave

  • almost 2 years ago

Episode 297 :: The Orville Vs. Star Trek: Discovery

  • about 1 year ago

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!

Nerdy Show Microsode: Dracula Untold & the Death of the Dark Universe

  • 10 months ago

By listener-request we're investigating the curious case of Dracula Untold - the 2014 film that puts a supernatural spin on Vlad the Impaler's real world origins and would have been the first installment in Universal's ill-fated cinematic universe of movie monsters. Does this new spin on a classic have enough bite to hold up against our refined tastes? Join Cap, boR, Doug, La Valle, and Chrystal as they sink their teeth in! We explore the background of the film's controversial tagline, "Get Sucked", and explore what would have been for the Dark Universe: why Dracula Untold became disavowed, how The Mummy put the nail in the coffin, and the ways that, in spite of everything, this surprising film might live again. Plus: our spontaneous creation of the most brilliant candy you've never tasted.

  • over 2 years ago

  So it's been a year...

  • about 2 years ago
