Brother Craig’s Traveling Salvation Show

March 2, 2017
00:0000:00

Craig and John return to making a mixed tape, but this time with a different motive- an autobiographical playlist. This week, Craig tackles “Side A” as he picks songs that tell a story of his life. Craig took the approach of having a playlist in chronological order of songs that had significance in importance in his life - while telling a good tale of why that song is on the list. Keeping it to an album length, there are some years missing in this tour through Craig's life, but enough significant moments that you might just learn a thing or two about him.

Time To Push The Powder

February 9, 2017
00:0000:00

In a world filled of cold, John and Craig stumble upon something that will warm you up. But that's just part of the story. This week, there are some things that happen that are unprecedented for the show. Hear Craig say the words “you were right” and hear John say the phrase “I agree with you.” There are tales of “that guy” at football championship parties, and we mourn the sad loss of creative nerds on one of the biggest stages of advertising. We ponder (then figure out) how Sony lost $1 billion and then read the synopsis of a movie that is either awesome or completely awesome. You decide. Plus some things are reviewed and we do ask “and where... is The Batman”

Are you a Young Einstein? You just might be if you can pass this simple Australian IQ Test.

Both hosts checked out a lot of things this week, and they give their reviews and commentary.

Mentally Challenged Vampires

October 13, 2016
00:0000:00

This Shocktober Episode has something a little improbable to discuss. John and Craig create a Royal Rumble of Terror where they discuss who would win in the ultimate battle. Discussing strengths and weaknesses of various horror characters they determine who gets the belt and would be declared champion if they all fought each other. The hosts address the clown epidemic sweeping the USA, discuss cinema psychopaths that we aren't giving enough credit to, and ponder where all of the female serial killers are. Topped off with the Nerd News and checking out lots of Shocktober offerings, this episode is a true nightmare fest.

Dial M For Murderousness

October 6, 2016
00:0000:00

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

September 22, 2016
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

The Knights Who Say Nerd

September 8, 2016
00:0000:00

Bring your blessed iPad Mini as Craig and John sit at the round table to bring you another episode. Both hosts go on a crusade to find answers and even demonstrate their soothsaying abilities as they discuss the inevitable and the world's largest aircraft and not having faith in a product, the prediction of Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook password, how King Arthur just got incredibly dumber...twice, Kevin Smith saying what John already knew, and decide which movies would make better television series. Plus one host is going to win $10 (presumably to buy a lot of peanuts). Also, the hosts checked things out, they review them, and give their usual nerd news and commentary.

Can You SMELLLLLL What The Spock Is Cookin

This is a learning episode of Words With Nerds. In this episode you will learn Craig is a fan of saying "I told you so." You will lean that the internet is full of phonies when it comes to being comic book fans. You will be educated on how music really makes or breaks a trailer. We all learn a way that John will not die, and with that John has watched way too many Final Destination movies. Learn the difference between judgmental and passing judgement. Craig figures out a way to drink more, and you can learn how. We also learn how to get a black belt without even trying. Also, you will learn what we watched, what we liked, disliked, and learn our opinion on all the important stuff.
