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:

Happy New Year Everyone! We're back with a round up of our humble opinions on the best and the worst of 2013 as well as some of the biggest things were looking forward to or dreading over the next 12 months. 

As I say in the show, the new facebook app is now online and available at https://www.facebook.com/NerdVWorld/app_450318108414866 where you can listen to the latest episode as well as access the archive of shows. Any problems/bugs with it, please let me know.
