Posted by on May 21, 2017 in Podcasts | 0 comments

On this week’s extra-special post-Tidewater Comicon episode of When Nerds Collide, Dan and Tom are joined by local legend and comic author Bob Frantz and Comicon concierge and long-time friend of the show, Zach Carr, who makes his first appearance with us! Tom opens the show with a retelling of how he was first made aware of the fact that he was losing his hair. Dan rants about the lack of love for Major Victory in Guardians Vol. 2 and gives a reason for that lack, we discuss the CW’s Black Lightning trailer, and bemoan the trailer for Freeform’s Cloak and Dagger. We then segue into our conversation about Tidewater Comicon! Dan tells his story of meeting legendary Chris Claremont, (whom everyone agrees is a very nice guy), Zach regales us with stories from the convention floor and Bob...

#202 – In Space, No One Can Here You Sigh In Disbelief

Posted by on May 7, 2017 in Podcasts | 0 comments

Welcome to this week’s super special episode of When Nerds Collide! This time we are joined by long-time friends of the show Ryan and Brandon to talk about one of the most successful film franchises, Alien! After a delightful anecdote from Dan, Brandon tells us of his recent experience shopping for racist knick-knacks at a local antique mall! Ryan gives an update on how things are over at the little podcast he does with that other guy. (Pooyan? Poochyena?) We get the show rolling by talking about the trailers for The Defenders on Netflix and the long-awaited film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower (and how McConnaughey must have jumped from filming his Lincoln commercial into shooting this film.) We then segue right into Xenomorph chat, with a brief discussion of each film, why we liked or disliked...

Posted by on Apr 30, 2017 in Podcasts | 0 comments

This week on the 201st episode of When Nerds Collide, as promised, we celebrate the return of long-time friends of the show, Matt and Avery! What? Avery’s never been on the show? Are you sure? I would have sworn he had been here before. Ok, then we celebrate the first appearance of Avery! And we told Matt he could be on the first episode after #200(we never thought we’d get that far), so welcome back! We’ve asked our friends to join us as we discuss the focus of the upcoming Marvel film, The Guardians of The Galaxy! Before we get to Guardians talk, however, the chit chat includes the obligatory Tidewater Comicon promo, Butt Stuff(always popular on this show), what if Howard Cosell had his own podcast, and what Avery is doing here. Jumping into the main topic, Dan...

Greetings and salutations! This week on When Nerds Collide, we celebrate our 200th episode with our discussion of the final book in J.K. Rowling’s classic heptalogy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! We are joined, as always, by our resident HP superfan, Blair! Also joining us is long-time friend of the show, Ivey, aka Harry’s biggest competitor for the affections of Ginny Weasley! (Seriously, the man wore a Ginny shirt to record the podcast.) After some catching up and a plug for the upcoming Tidewater Comicon, the Harry Potter talk begins in earnest. Blair jumps right into the conversation with her bidding on eBAy. The discussion includes our feelings on all the death in what is essentially a children’s book, observations on the relationships between Harry and Ginnny and Ron and Hermione, and Tom’s perspective on Rowling’s revelation that...

After months of recording from parts unknown and a brief hiatus, we are finally back in WNC podcast central, aka Dan’s mancave! On this week’s episode, we start out with a discussion of the trailers for Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars: The Last Jedi! Tom spews his newly found hatred for the folks at Nintendo while Dan has a jukebox full of songs that aren’t about what you think they are(which of course includes singing! So much singing! Some of it actually on key!) And in celebration of the United Airlines fiasco, we have a quiz on movies about airplanes! So fasten your seatbelt, return your tray table to it’s full upright position and enjoy! Please rate and review us on Itunes! Also, check out our Facebook page and our Twitter feed! Thanks to Kirby Krackle for the tunage!...

#198 – Hot Cough Syrup

Posted by on Apr 14, 2017 in Podcasts | 0 comments

On this week’s very special episode of When Nerds Collide, Dan and Tom come back after several weeks off due to illness and fatigue. (They were sick and tired of doing the show!) Seriously though, Dan was under the weather the previous week and opens the show with a cautionary tale of over-medicating, especially with hot cough syrup! Daniel drops the announcement that this will be the last week in the podcast annex, because repairs to the house will be complete by the time they record the next episode! Huzzah! Other than that, it’s an old-fashioned rambling episode, full of digressions and asides, including catching up on movies Dan finally watched like Dr. Strange and Moana, and Dan’s Facebook defense of why he likes Jubilee. Tom, devastated because the Sister Kissers were unable to attend Disney Trivia Night at...
