Episode 25 sees the Nerds discussing current events, including some SPOILERS. Commander Hadfield has returned to earth - SPOILER - and Todd can't stop humming Space Oddity. Plus the fellas dissect the summers biggest box office champ so far - Iron Man 3 (SPOILERS!), and James goes to town on Star Trek Into Darkness (SPOILERS). So, spoil yourself by listening to this podcast.
Last week we talked about final episodes and how our favorite shows ended. This week, we're looking at how they began! We're discussing title and credit sequences, and singing a lot of theme songs. How come they all sound like Greatest American Hero when we do them?
After last week's beer-infused discussion, we bring in our pal Rob, The Bargamer (a bartender that plays games) to talk about alcohol in pop culture, why D&D games always start in a tavern, and what you can tell about someone by their drink order. Cheers!
What happens when the crew continues drinking and talking with their buddy Scott about D&D? Well, we share stories of our favourite characters, past (imagined) adventures and general anecdotes. Plus Todd mixes up a few acronyms and James is aggressively antagonistic. He's not allowed to drink during recording any more! (Don't worry, we'll talk about that next week.)
Our friend Scott Holden was visiting the Great White North and stopped by to have some beers and talk about his career with Sword & Sorcery, EVE Online and DrivethruRPG.com. A true renaissance man, Scott is a warrior-poet who's had a lot of adventures in the adventure gaming industry and has lived to tell the tale.
There are a lot of things for nerd-brains to obsess over, and music is definitely one that hits home with the Nerd Tangent crew. James, Todd and John the Engineer talk about the phases of their various music obsessions, and note key moments, songs and concerts that awakened a nerd passion for music.
Here's a shocker - we're talking about Star Wars. After our discussion last week regarding good and bad sequels, we talk about what we'd like to see in the next Star Wars trilogy.
Is this really the first time we've talked about sequels? Inspired by the internet, talking about movie sequels that worked, didn't work, how we'd have written Highlander II, and what movies we think should or shouldn't have a Part 2...
