148. Fact Check Your Geek News

On this episode of Nerd & Tie our big topic is the spread of, for lack of a better term, “fake news” in the geek news world. We talk about how it’s important to check the sources of articles before sharing and just how frustrating it is when your friends don’t. Before that we hit the headlines, where Robotech is moving to Funimation, Vic Mignogna’s lawsuit has been completely tossed, and the live action Cowboy Bebop has been delayed due to John Cho’s knee injury.

It’s an interesting episode for sure.

Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
