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.

Words With Nerds: Hominem Revoltio

00:0000:00

John cries out from the abyss: "Stop the planet of the guest hosts, I want to get off!"


A very special co-host stops by the studio to help Words With Nerds debate grand geekery about:

  • Harry Potter: Just what makes the kids love him still;
  • Beverly Hills Stallone - the hero we didn’t get, but the hero we deserved;
  • Have we found a way to make Words With Nerds: The Movie?
  • How to succeed as a screenwriter without really crying;
  • Insight on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes;
  • Nerd News!
  • Nerd Rage: Stop badmouthing my super man

This week’s episode of Words With Nerds is brought to you by the NSA. You’re talking. They're listening.

We are back at it to fill your earholes with all of the answers to the universe. We cover lots of important topics like:

  • Someone ringing more than a bell at the Salvation Army
  • What do Borg smell like
  • Is Kronos possibly the foulest smelling planet in all of the galaxies
  • What makes a proper ending for a television series
  • Is there any fictional world that seems like a nice place to live?
  • Obligatory The Never Ending Story references
And if you listen hard, John tries his hardest to use big words to make himself sound smart while Craig tunes him out. It is good fun for all.

Listen. Spread the word.

We hope you enjoy lisening, and, if you like the show, or want to interact leave a voicemail on our Nerd Line (571) 308- NERD

This week Craig and John do a little spring cleaning with some issues and comments from past episodes. We ponder life's mysteries like:

  • What is the difference between Sci-Fi and Fantasy
  • When Dazzler joined the X-Men did it become fantasy
  • Why can't our celebrities be educated
  • Sci-fi: does the genre breed smarter actors
  • Why Marvel gave two middle fingers to DC Comics
We listen to listeners' phone calls, Craig interrupts John, and John points out that the show can be bribed easily. A fun show for the whole family. And you just might learn something too!
