Category Archives: The Nerd & Tie Podcast

Updated fortnightly, the Nerd & Tie Podcast dives into our geeky world head first. Nick, Trae and Gen go into indepth discussions on all topics nerdy and geeky, and hope to come out with something interesting at the end. Usually they do.

Episode 22 – Sad Batman

On this fortnight’s episode Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is shuffling around some creative staffers, DC’s Carnival of Sadness continues (with David S. Goyer practically spiking the “I hate the fans” football), CHRIS PRATT MIGHT RIDE A DINOSAUR in Jurassic World, the classic Sailor Moon’s rerelease is pretty great, some DC TV shows are getting new trailers, and Gamera is getting (another) reboot for 2015.

We are pretty excited for that last one.

Special: Godzilla (2014)

History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of men. Or at least history shows how a ten minute segment on a regular episode couldn’t contain our opinions on Godzilla. Because we have a lot. Enough to fill an entire episode.

So we interrupted our fortnightly schedule to bring you this: our Godzilla Special!

Episode 21 – A Meandering Mess

We attempt to get the episode in some sort of orderly fashion, but barely manage coherance. We talk about the death of Star War’s expanded universe, more details about Episode VII, Wolverine’s upcoming “death,” our thoughts on Amazing Spider-Man 2, Community’s cancellation, Gotham’s new trailer, No Brand Con 2014 and Cherry City Comic Con show us all how NOT to do convention PR.

And we let Nick talk about Cardcaptor Sakura.

Because.

Episode 20 – Live at No Brand Con!

This fortnight we come to you live from No Brand Con 2014! We talk about a potential return of MST3K, the Agent Carter TV show, Transformers crossing over with Evangelion, the DC carnival of Sadness continuing, Bryan Singer being terrible, Lose Lose… and our listeners are in the room.

And things get real.

Episode 19 – Insert David Goyer Joke Here

On this episode we talk about Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, the current arc on Agents of SHIELD, David S. Goyer’s comments on the (lack of a) DC Cinematic Universe, Battlestar Galactica getting a reboot, Amazon buying Comixology, the upcoming No Brand Con, and we let Nick talk about… Megan Fox?

Yep. This is a thing.

A thing that has happened.

Episode 18 – Textbook Sassypants Discovery Manual

On this episode, we talk about three conventions (Kitsune Kon, Karoshi Con and The INDYpendent Show), Shaq Fu 2, first looks at Gotham, set photos from Age of Ultron, the new Ninja Turtles Trailer, and we let Nick talk about Gundam.

And we swear the title will make sense, too.

Episode 17 – Kickstarter Withheld

On this fortnight’s episode we discuss Zack Snyder’s ranting about Watchmen, John Campbell’s Kickstarter implosion, Bitcoin’s Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity, Matt Ryan and Constantine, CW’s Flash’s Costume, the Veronica Mars movie… and how 11% of all Americans mistake HTML for an STD.

Yeah. That bit may make you cry.

Note: This episode has slightly strong language near the beginning. We apologize.

Well, to you.

Not to Zack Snyder.

Episode 16 – All Goff and Stuff

On this episode we interview (My) Immortal webseries creator Brian McLellan. We also talk about the planned revivals of Pushing Daisies, Heroes, and Farscape. We let Nick talk about the Kikaider reboot, and Trae manages to not complain about Barry Allen’s costume for the new Flash series. Godzilla and Guardians of the Galaxy have new trailers… and we sort of read your mail.

That bit got complicated this episode.

Episode 15 – Muted Fury

On this installment we talk about Anime Milwaukee, 90s’ TV Flash is joining the cast of the CW’s Flash, DC Animation getting a new shared universe, a US remake of the UK series Utopia, Gargoyles showing up on Youtube, and lawmakers in New Jersey are trying to rename the Sea of Japan.

You read that right.

Also, Pher has lost his voice, so you’ll be getting a lot of Trae and Nick this episode.

Episode 14 – The DC Carnival of Sadness

On this fortnight’s episode we mourn the passing of Justin Carmical, cheer ourselves up with talking about Marvel’s cinematic universe, get a little sadder with DC’s cinematic future, feel okay with Star Wars episode VII getting a new script… and finally feel pretty happy about the new looks for both the Ninja Turtles and the Doctor.

Man, a TMNT/Doctor Who crossover would be great…
