Episode #13 - Our “Better-Late-Than-Never” Recap of E3 2017

June 28, 2017

E3 2017 was a few weeks ago, so we apologize that our review of it is coming to you guys this late in the game (no pun intended). However, we firmly believe that it's better late than never to deliver the episode to you!

Andrew and Connor are both back for this episode, and we took the time to discuss some of the highlights from this year's E3 conference, including a few new IPs, reboots and sequels, and what we think might be some of the fan-favorites we have to look forward to!

Episode #12 - Alternative Rock of the 2000s

June 20, 2017

Alternative rock music of the 2000s is the best. It’s the genre that gave us bands like Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, and My Chemical Romance. And if you don’t like those bands, you’re entitled to your wrong opinion. On today’s episode, we discuss this amazing genre of music, and cover talking points such as:

  • Our favorite bands that helped shape the genre
  • Bands whose sound has evolved over time
  • Bands who has stayed true to their original sound

Episode #11 - Allons Y

June 6, 2017

“It’s bigger on the inside.” “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey.” “Don’t blink.” Do any of these quotes confuse the hell out of you? Because they certainly have that effect on me. Today we talk with Lindsay Cobb-Dassau (sister-in-law to David) to get the low-down on the basics of Doctor Who. Our hope is that, after this episode, you will have a better understanding of the show, and why it’s so damn popular.

Episode #10 - Villains of The MCU

May 23, 2017

We made it to episode 10! In today's episode, we conduct a retrospective of all the MCU Villains we've seen thus far. We start with the not-so-great baddies that were less than effective in their respective movies, and end up with some of the more menacing villains.

PS: Here's the link to the list we read from during the episode http://bzfd.it/2rQ9Tmb

PSS: There were a few peaks/blow-outs in the audio, sorry in advance

Episode #09 - Andrew’s Guide to Disney World

May 5, 2017

It's the most magical place on earth, but with a few strings attached (that's kind of a Pinocchio pun). In order to make the most out of your trip to Disney World, you need to be prepared, and Andrew is prepared to help you out.

Andrew knows pretty much everything there is to know about the parks, hotel accommodations, dining, and shopping. So sit back, get pen and paper ready, and listen as Andrew schools you on visiting Disney World.

Episode #08 - The Office vs Parks and Rec

April 13, 2017

Today's episode features our second guest Catie Fenley! She is a superfan of both The Office and Parks and Rec, so we decided to have a chat about both of the shows. David and Catie touch on numerous points, such as which show had the better on-screen romance, which had the better quotes, and some of the long-running jokes that the shows boasted.

Episode #07 - MCU’s Phase 3

March 29, 2017

In today’s episode, we discuss Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We cover many topics about Phase 3, including the two films we’ve gotten so far, and which ones we are most looking forward to seeing. We also talk a little bit about the Russo Brothers, and how everything has just been so fantastic since they’ve stepped into the picture.

Episode #06 - Six Video Games We Think are Swell

March 13, 2017

In today's episode, Andrew, Connor, and David each discuss two of their favorite video games. This episode is a little less structured than our previous ones, so just a fair warning that we go off topic just a few times.

In our Nerdy News Update, Andrew gives us new info on the Star Wars franchise, Connor rants about the Dragon Ball Z series, and David gets excited for Thor Ragnarok news.

Episode #04 - Netflix Original Series

February 19, 2017

Netflix has quite the abundance of viewing material, both from their streaming services as well as their DVD mail order service. However, their original series have taken over these past few years as their bread and butter. In today's episode, we discuss how Netflix has broken the mold as a streaming service, successfully transitioned into being a provider of original content, and changed the way we consume entertainment. We also came up with our own top 5 favorite Netflix Original Series.

In addition to today's topic, we started a new segment (name pending, Nerdy News Update maybe?) where we each talk about something that's been in the news of geek-media.
