Episode 47 – The Good, the Bad, and the Unexpected

On this episodes we break things down into the Good (show renewals), the Bad (show cancellations) and the Unexpected (which is what it sounds like). Listen to and watch us celebrate iZombie, Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD all getting new seasons. Listen to us lament the loss of Constantine… and Helix.

Then we get to Red Dwarf‘s two new upcoming series, a Myst TV show, and a thoroughly unneeded third installment in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight saga.

We also share our thoughts on No Brand Con and read the biggest mailbag in a long while.

This episode was sponsored by Zach Fisher. You can sponsor episodes too.

Episode 46 – Live at No Brand Con 2015

This is the weirdest episode we’ve ever done in the history of Nerd & Tie. I’m serious – we’ve never been this strange before, and likely never will again. This episode was recorded live at No Brand Con 2015 in Eau Claire, WI.

The final No Brand Con in Eau Claire in fact.

Our biggest story is No Brand Con’s announcement they’re moving to the Wisconsin Dells in 2016 (and this dominates a pretty huge part of the episode – including a live Q&A with the audience since two of us are former staffers of this event), but we also talk about Iceman’s sexuality in Marvel’s main comic universe as well as the Galaxy Quest TV adaptation.

And then we start reading your letters and things get weird.

Who am I kidding, they were weird long before we got there. This episode is also called what happens when we decided to get Pher drunk before recording the podcast and give the audience a microphone.

Stuff to read:

No Brand Con Relocating to Wisconsin Dells in 2016

No Brand Con, Wisconsin’s oldest and longest running Anime Convention, has been held in Eau Claire, WI since its first event in 2002. The convention unceremoniously announced today, at the beginning of their 14th convention, on the back of their program guide that the event will be relocating to the Wisconsin Dells for next year’s event.

No Brand Con 2016 will be held at the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells from April 15th-17th.

This is the point where I need to disclose a few things. Continue reading No Brand Con Relocating to Wisconsin Dells in 2016

Episode 45 – Completely Pherless

On this episode of the podcast, some MRAs have been kicked out of Calgary Expo, Syfy is ditching wrestling, Wonder Woman is switching directors, we’ve got a whole mess of new trailers to discuss, Trae went to the INDYpendent Show and we talk about our plans for No Brand Con next weekend!

And Pher got sick last minute, so he isn’t here. It’s just Trae and Nick.

And Trae had to quick edit the episode’s title card, much to Pher’s sadness.

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.

So this weekend the Nerd & Tie crew is headed to No Brand Con in Eau Claire, WI. We, of course, will be doing another “Nerd & Tie LIVE” show like we did at Daisho Con, but Nick, Pher and Trae will be doing a bunch of other stuff too while they’re there.

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.
