In the tradition of the beloved Nerd Lunch podcast, Michael May and a host of familiar (as well as some new) voices discuss a wide variety of topics from TV, movies, comics, games, and anything else they can think of.
21: The Mandalorian, Season 2
Annaliese Trammel, Paxton Holley, and Jeeg join Michael and Rob to hunt down Mandalorians and Jedi and -- ooh! side quest! -- on this in-depth, episode-by-episode symposium on the second season of The Mandalorian.
20: Nerdstradamus 2021
After Michael May and Robert Zerbe check in on their resolutions and predictions from last year's Nerdstradamus episode, Rob Graham, Evan Hanson, Kay, and Paxton Holley join the fun to look back on the books, movies, and TV shows of 2020 and forward to what's potentially coming in 2021. This episode is full of resolutions, recommendations, and reckonings. And a little bonus something we like to call "Tea Talk."
Opening song by Andrew Bird.
19: After Dinner Lounge - December 2020
Michael May, Rob Graham, and Evan Hanson reconvene for another informal conversation about what they’ve been reading, watching, and thinking about lately.
Topics meander merrily, but start from:
Books like Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens' Christmas Books, The Devil’s Due by Bonnie MacBird, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, and Becoming by Michelle Obama. Comics like Silver Spoon by Hiromu Arakawa Movies like the original Black Christmas, this year's Fatman, and the documentary Pilgrims. TV shows like Dicktown and Truth Seekers And real talk on Holiday Traditions, Movie Theaters, and This Podcast.
18: Christmas TV Episodes
Christian Nielsen and new guest Karen Flieger join Rob and Michael to talk about their favorite Christmas episodes of TV shows. In discussions of The Beverly Hillbillies, Bewitched, Friends, and Justice League, the Clampetts learn about the politics of gift-giving, the Stephens' help an orphan boy discover the spirit of the season, Ross tries to teach his son about Hanukkah after a lifetime of Santa, and Superman invites Martian Manhunter home for the holidays.
Featuring music by Straight No Chaser.
17: Fantastic Four Films
With Disney's recent announcement that there's a new Fantastic Four movie coming that will be part of the MCU, it's a great time to discover a lost podcast episode about the four FF films so far. From the no-longer-with-us Geek Fallout: The Comic Book Episodes, host Erik Johnson leads a discussion with Nerd Lunch/AfterLUNCH regulars Paxton Holley and Evan Hanson about Fantastic Four (2015), Fantastic Four (2005), Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), and The Fantastic Four (1994).
16: Lost Christmas Specials
Mike Westfall and Michael DiGiovanni join Michael May and Rob Graham to create Rankin-Bass stop-motion Christmas specials that never existed, but should have. Lots of holiday spirit AND SINGING in this episode, so gather the family, get some hot chocolate, and enjoy!

Great Podcast, Even Without Coy and Vance
I only discovered this long-running podcast about a year ago, but am constantly entertained by the variety of topics obsessed over by the hosts, CT, Pax and Jeeg. My favorite shows often deal with hypothetical scenarios involving revivals of a favorite movie or TV show, mash-ups between comic book franchises or imagining toy lines for properties that never had them. It's a ton of fun with each host sharing a distinct point of view and the guests are fantastically nerdy as well. It's a podcast that casually invites you to join the crew as they let their geek flags fly and there are over 300 episodes in the archives for you to discover. At least listen long enough to finally get that Coy and Vance episode.
Nerdy before nerdy was cool.
Old school nerd goodness. I find myself talking back to the podcast and joining the conversations every week.
