Posted by on Oct 29, 2016 in Podcasts | 0 comments

On this week’s very special episode of When Nerds Collide, Dan and Tom indulge in a bit of self-indulgent discussion about one of their favorite topics, mimes! They discuss who is better, Marcel Marceau or Robert Shields. Dan does his best impression of Silent bob and reenacts Nosferatu in time for Halloween! The discuss the success of mime group Mummenschanz and their appearance on The Muppet Show. They talk about their favorite Pokemon, Mr. Mime. And finally, they ask the question, “How DO you get out of that damn box?” Unfortunately,Tom misunderstood the topic, so this week’s quiz is all about the history of mining! So break out the grease paint, sit back on your invisible chair and enjoy! Check us out on Facebook, email us at, Tweet us at @collidingnerds and give us a 9 star rating...

On this week’s very extra special, pre-Hurricane edition of When Nerds Collide, we are joined by returning compadres of the show, ludibriologist Brandon and discophile Rob! This time around, we talk about collecting! Toys, stamps, coins, whatever, we discuss what drives us to buy things and then buy more things and then more and more until our living space overflows with such detritus that we can no longer…sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, why we collect things and what drives some to become completionists or why we just buy the things that catch our eye. Most of this discussion focuses on toys (read: action figures) so of course we close out the show with a quiz about toys! So break out your Cabbage Patch Kid, sit back and enjoy Check us out on Facebook, email us at, Tweet...

On this week’s very special episode of When Nerds Collide, we cover the penultimate chapter of the Harry Potter sequence, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! Our resident Potter pal, Blair, joins us along with her friend and new friend of the show, Karen! Karen may be a bigger Potter fan than Blair! We discuss some current nerd happenings and then, presto, right into this week topic. We let Karen establish her HP cred (and it’s impressive), we talk about what happens in the book and the film, the differences between the two, and why the Half-Blood Prince part of the title really doesn’t mean anything! As always, we have the quiz, and Dan finishes up with some entertaining factoids. So whip out your extendable ears and eavesdrop on our conversation! Check us out on Facebook, email us at...
