NerdVsWorld

NerdVsWorld is a podcast from two thirtysomething nerds from Oxford: Brendan and Spindles. It was born out of the amalgamation of Brendan's NerdVsWorld youtube show and Si and Ady's Eclectic Technicolour Podcast of Awesome.

Every fortnight the lads tackle the latest news in Film, TV, Comics, Gadgets, Nerd Culture and more.

As well as this we also have special guests on the show in the form of various authors, actors and musicians. So far there have been appearances from the likes of Robert Rankin, Jonathan Green, Emma Newman, Megan Hayes, Professor Elemental and Bitter Ruin to name but a few.

New episodes are released fortnightly on Fridays and you can find the latest episodes of NerdVsWorld below, or you can also:

It's like Christmas time for us here at NerdVsWorld as the new TV season kicks off in earnest. We review some of the new shows as well as some thoughts on returning ones. Spindles reports back on this season's upcoming new games from this year's EGX event at the NEC in Birmingham. And, finally, we have a bit of an update on the Lunatics on Mars as well as thoughts on the new Ridley Scott film, The Martian.

On this week's show, Brendan and Spindles are joined by Allen Stroud, Writer, Musician, Fellow Podcaster and New Media lecturer.

Following on from some excellent panels at this year's Nine Worlds convention, we talk about the past, present and future of New Media. We also discuss Netflix's recent decision not to renew their contract with Epix and the possible ramifications.

Be warned, it is quite a long episode this week, hence the late release.
