On this week’s special Tom’s birthday episode of When Nerds Collide, Dan and Tom welcome back long-time friend of WNC and host of every other podcast in the world available today, Bruce Leslie! Bruce joins the guys this week to discuss The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher! Tom is a huge fan of The Dresden Files and even persuaded Bruce to do and episode of one of his podcasts, Heroes and Villains (shameless plug!), about Harry Dresden. An unknown character to him at the time, Bruce has since read all the books and Daniel, after much cajoling and pestering, got the audiobooks and began his journey into the Wizarding World of Harry Dresden! (A wizard named Harry…that sounds familiar… not sure why… oh well) The Dresden Files spans 16 novels, numerous short stories, graphic novels, an RPG, and a...

Howdy and welcome to this week’s super-special episode of When Nerds Collide! On this week’s program, we uphold the age-old comic book tradition of the crossover! Dan and Tom, Nerds extraordinaire, meet up with the hosts of the amazing Mouthy Broadcast, Jennie, Lauren, and Peter! Dan and Tom, both exhausted from a week of colliding, start off the show with discussion of the movie of the week, Wonder Woman! The consensus from everyone that had seen the film was that it is a pretty good film, and we all give our thoughts as to why and what we disliked(the Zach Snyder effect). We then segue into a talk about Dr. Who and the departure of Peter Capaldi, which leads into a discussion of how we feel about how faithful the adaptation of source material should be, especially concerning race...

Posted by on May 28, 2017 in Podcasts | 0 comments

Welcome to episode 204 of When Nerds Collide! This week Dan and Tom are joined by first-time guest Antonio! Antonio is a long-time friend of the show(hey, that’s three of those since we moved back into podcast central!) and a familiar face from Tidewater Comicon where he can be found making sure the discussion panels go off without a hitch! He’s never listened to our show, but maybe now that he’s on the show, he’ll give it a shot.(Does anyone actually listen? Maybe that’s why we don’t get voice-mails?) Tom opens the show with a rant about local politics and how much our elected officials have no idea how to manage our tax dollars.(Not very funny, but he raises some valid points! Info-tainment!) Dan asks Antonio about his current interests which leads into a discussion about self-inflicted wounds, either...

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...
