Podcasts: the final frontier. These are the ramblings of the Words With Nerds hosts John and Craig. Its five-year broadcast: to explore wonderfully nerdy words, to seek out new films, television and new comics, to boldly go where ever they feel like, because this week they explore all kinds of important things. Like the “brave” actor that is no longer offended, toys going bankrupt, the existential powder that may not exist, and discuss The Orville. Explore with John and Craig as they checked out some things, have some recommendations, and entertain you.

Ahch-To Baby! This week we react to the latest #Disney #Lucasfilm #StarWars firing - is it just us, or is the thrill of them gone? - and lament the Debate That Never Was about #Unicron and #Galactus. Then a lively discussion is had about why one host liked #Marvel's #TheDefenders and one did not, and share our latest thoughts on #HashtagOveruse.

Are you a Young Einstein? You just might be if you can pass this simple Australian IQ Test. This episode isn't all Serious though, we discuss the saturation of Funko, ridicule nerds for getting bent out of shape because of the title of the next Star Wars film, discuss that Amazon is laughing at Netflix, give crazy theories, tell tales and have a good time. One host learned that being on painkillers still doesn't make Suicide Squad enjoyable, and a broken foot is still less painful than watching Manchester By The Sea. Both hosts checked out a lot of things this week, and they give their reviews and commentary.

Uber Deaths, Movie Deaths, Comic Book Storyline Deaths. But it's not all about the grim reaper for 2017, there are some surprises, and other predictions for the Nerd Year from your hosts.

The Devil went down to Disney, looking for some Rogue One spoilers to steal. He wanted to bet your soul against a droid of gold, but he failed. However he may have found the secrets that will lead to Rogue Six. John and Craig discuss how companies are working hard to ruin movies while they ponder dream sequences in some films to coming out. You learn that John is not a fan(dango) but he can be if you make things right. Some listeners ask questions and weigh in on what the new Chelada Challenge should be, the hosts argue over who is a liar, and figure out that apps may be the best way to make money. Also, they talk about something taboo, that the World Police taught us everyone has. Plus they checked out some things and make you laugh.

Want to hear something scary? No, do you really want to hear something scary? Craig and John kick off Shocktober with discussing tales of how Craig and John should have been murdered and tie that into some of the urban legends you may have been frightened from. The hosts give you some required viewing while contemplating if Batman just hates Halloween. We question if there is some good Halloween comics, bring you the Nerdy Nightmare News, and check out some things (through a peep hole in the shower, of course.) This kickoff to Shocktober is more refreshing than a midnight swim in Crystal Lake.

Cool Hand Craig

00:0000:00

What we don't have here is a failure to communicate. In fact John and Craig step up to the mic and communicate their opinions quite well this week. After taking the time to retort to comments from some loyal listeners, and one host writing a a blog that the other disagrees with, they have a healthy debate which turns into a discussion of great character intros in modern cinema. Craig seems to gravitate to characters that he relates with more, and John gravitates toward characters he relates to more.
The hosts throw some questions out to the listeners, check out some things, and give their usual commentary. Also, Craig and John add something to their list of “Ways Words With Nerds Hosts Won't Die”

Chapters

  • 00:00 Nuptials
  • 01:59 That Sound You Hear Is the Microphone
  • 03:34 John Joins The Revolution
  • 12:00 A Great Introduction
