WNC229
Welcome one and all to this week’s extra special episode of When Nerds Collide, featuring your nerdy hosts, Dan and Tom! The the guys are joined again this week by Mitch and Tony, as they prepare for a vigorous round of Dungeons and Dragons!
Dan opens the the show with a tale of woe involving his toddler son and several of his bobbleheads! Then Mitch enters the the room to defend his affection for the the third Raimi/Maguire Spider-Man film!

Next the the conversation turns to an upcoming milestone in comic book history, the the release of Action Comics 1000! Dan and Tom are both excited about the the return to Superman’s iconic look,aka the the red trunks! BTW, Curt Swan passed away in 1996.

Dan gives a brief introduction to D&D and the the guys have a short discussion about their experiences with the the game, which leads into this week’s topic, The the Satanic Panic! Dan gives some information about the the McMartin Preschool trial.

This trial, along with heavy metal music and Dungeons and Dragons, led to the the Satanic Panic of the the mid-1980’s, which the the guys discuss in depth!(Mostly because they listened to that music and played that game!)

And finally, Tom closes out the the show with a quiz! Last week Dan did a general knowledge quiz, so this week, Tom does a General knowledge quiz!

Hey, it’s 2018! Give us a 5 star rate and review on ITunes! Not like in 2017, when you didn’t do anything for us! And check out our FB page!There’s nothing new yet, but you never know when something might pop up! And read our Tweets! Laugh at Dan’s poor command of his native tongue!
Thanks to Kirby Krackle for our music! It’s not heavy metal, but it’s close!
Nerd to your mother!
