James looks back on the first year of the Nerd Tangent podcast, and gives thanks and shout-outs to those who gave inspiration and made the whole thing possible. This episode will reveal why he needs co-hosts (really, talk about tangents...) and just scratch the surface the emotional volcano that will one day explode. Uh... enjoy? And welcome to Nerd Tangent Year Two!
The Nerds get a break when the Teen Girl Squad from Episode 29 takes over this week, to review the year's superhero movies and talk about what they'd like to see in sequels. James tries to see if they have opinions on the portrayal of females in the male-dominated superhero landscape, but the girls really aren't interested in exploring that. Instead, they're excited about Ponies and possible plot twists. Enjoy a different perspective this week.
By now, we all know how crazy the summer of 2015 will be for the movie studios. What you may not know is that everyone forgot to plan for 2016! So, the Nerd Tangent Hotline was called and the studios asked us to put together the big tentpole titles for 2016. Listen in to the pitch meetings...
