December 1, 2016
00:0000:00

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.

Beetlecraig! Beetlecraig! Beetlecraig!

October 26, 2016
00:0000:00

Your hosts work all night and drink the rum as they bring you the last Shocktober episode of the season. This week, John and Craig explain the fascination with Ghost Adventures, and spiral into some self-loathing because they know the equipment too well. John puts Craig in the hot seat as he questions if ghosts are real or not. A geography lesson is handed out, the science of ghostly knives, and a lively discussion of what it takes to believe in ghosts ensues. The hosts break down some of the latest nerd news, and checked out some hunting delights as they give their 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.

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.)

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”
