    The Nerds: Star Trek Discovery

    The Nerds: Star Trek Discovery

    As the new year rolls around, we get the second half of Star Trek Discovery.  Jon, Lindsay, and Miles talk about what they taught about the first half.  It's not your normal Star Trek, and that's probably a good thing.  It's time to change how we tell our Trek stories, and something that is more of a reflection of our current day, instead of times decades ago.

    If you're a Trekkie or a Sci-Fi Nerd, come join the discussion and let us know how you feel about the new Star Trek, and how you feel after you've had time to digest the first 10 episodes.

    The Nerds: Thor Ragnarok

    The Nerds: Thor Ragnarok

    Thor Rangnarok hit us all in early November; in classic Nerds fashion, we are talking about it now.  We sit down to talk about why the Marvel comedy worked, and what makes it stand out from the rest of the MCU.

    The Nerds Podcast: Spider-Man Homecoming

    The Nerds Podcast: Spider-Man Homecoming

    It's great to finally have Peter Parker home with Marvel.

    The Nerds sit down to talk about the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man flying back into the MCU.  We all loved the tease we got with Captain America: Civil War, and now we get the full Spidey treatment.  We also go off on a tangent about the potential Spider-Man has to affect the other movie franchises.  How is Venom going to work into the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

    If you love great acting, great movies, and great story telling, Spider-Man: Homecoming is a movie you should watch multiple times.

    It was an amazing movie, come join the conversation and let us know what you thought about Homecoming in the comments down below.

    The Nerds Podcast: Wonder Woman

    The Nerds Podcast: Wonder Woman

    It's a bit late, but it's here.  The Wonder Woman Podcast, there was a bit of technical trouble with the recording.  We were able to save it, and thank goodness we did.  We were blown away by the quality of Wonder Woman.  It was the superhero movie we have not had in a while.  Lindsay, James, Miles, and myself break down what we thought was great, and what we thought could have used some work.  Spoiler, we thought it was damn awesome.

    What did you think of the Wonder Woman movie?  Is this the opening we needed to see more female super hero movies?  Could this lead to a Black Widow movie?  Will this get Marvel to put more fuel into the Captain Marvel movie?  Let us know in the comments below.

    The Nerds Podcast: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    The Nerds Podcast: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Family will always give you trouble, it is a constant through the universe.  In James' Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, we get that in galactic spades.  The Nerds review what happened in the movie, and why Volume 2 made Volume 1 a better movie.

    There was a lot packed into the new Guardians movie, with a lot of layers.  We look at the themes of family, and we look at how they leaned into the hokey.  Guardians Vol. 2 owned what the movie was, and played it to perfection.  We got more 80's space opera, with a lot of character development.  If we were looking for more depth to the characters in Vol. 1, we had a lot of satisfaction after the end credits rolled for Vol. 2.

    Sit back, relax, and join the conversation about Guardians Volume 2.  Did you see the movie?  Where do you rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Was that a fitting send off for Yondu?  Let us know in the comments below.

Fun and nerdy

A funny, inclusive crew of nerds who know what’s up. Sometimes Miles laughs too loud but I don’t think he can help it.

Geek podcast done right!

Very enjoyable podcast on all things geek culture, with lots of great banter and entertaining guests! Worth a listen, especially their Ghostbusters episode.
