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:

In which the guys round up this season's finalés, talk about what's been cancelled and renewed, some Star Wars casting news reactions, Spindles' trip to the MCM London Comic Con, A Marvel-ous Nerdjudication and much more.

Musical outro this week is from the awesome New Jacobin Club. You can find out all about them on their website http://www.newjacobinclub.com/ where you can also download some of their tracks for free. So go check them out.

On this week's show, Spindles and Ady have to cope on their own as Brendan is a poorly thing, but they are joined by the incredibly wonderful, ukulele wielding, nerd powered songstress Helen Arney. There is talk of giant inflatable cows being transported via zeppelin, nerdy puns, a rather unique take on the 5 Films question and much more.

So, this weekend we all trooped over the treacherous wastelands of Mordor to Pwllheli in North Wales for the fifth Sci Fi Weekender. I had the absolute pleasure of conducting the inteview with the very lovely René Auberjonois on the main stage. 

Unfortunately due to a technical glitch it appears that my admission to The Little Mermaid being one of my favourite films and the ensuing chorus of Les Poissons will remain only in the memory of the attendees. Aside from that, I present you the panel in full. Enjoy.
