Episode 74 – Bucking Tradition

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, CBS and Paramount have decided to settle the Axanar lawsuit , there’s a bit of Captain America controversy, Geoff Johns has been put in charge of the DCEU, Emerald City Comicon is getting sued, Anime Expo reverses Background check policy for vendors, Space City Comic Con has a bizarre guest/vip pass fiasco on a massive scale, and our roadshow continues to hit more cons!

And we read your letters too!

(Correction: In this episode we mistakenly refer to a set of proposed fan film guidelines as endorsed by CBS and Paramount — these guidelines are actually the ones Axanar’s producers are proposing to CBS and Paramount as a part of their settlement)

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
