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:

This week, Brendan, Spindles and Emma are joined by the wonderful Emma Newman, author and geek extraordinaire for a very lovely chat over a couple of drinks just before we all went to a Neil Gaiman signing. We talk about immersive live role playing games, conventions, favourite films, music and more. You can find out all about her over on her website http://www.enewman.co.uk/ where you can not only buy her books, but you can also listen to her brilliant podcast: Tea and Jeopardy. 

In lieu of a musical interlude this week here's a link to the How To Destroy Angels track we were talking about in the episode. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWbfgGDl6XE

We talk about invaders from mars, air guitar championships, forthcoming books, Freddie Mercury and the return of a certain time travelling vegetable amongst other things.

Apologies for the weird digital distortion from about 22 minutes in... No clue where it came from and I couldn't get rid of it in the edit without destroying the content. So I hope it doesn't annoy you too much.

As the fall 2012 - 2013 season draws to a close, Brendan, Ady and Spindles round up the best and the worst of this season's finalés. Special attention is paid, of course, to the Doctor Who finalé. This podcast contains huge spoilers for Doctor Who so be warned if you've not yet watched the end of this season.

Also covered are the latest Star Trek film, some bad news for Brendan on the new Star Wars movies and a little trick to allow you to watch the american version of Netflix.

This week, Brendan and Spindles are joined in the studio by Cody in Ady's absence.

Things up for debate this week include what's been cancelled and renewed in TV land, neural interfaces, more reactions to more Crow remake news plus the usual mixed bag of other stuff. I will confess that I got my actresses mixed up, it was not Christina Ricci who appeared in a Crow sequel, it was, in fact, Kirsten Dunst. So, my apologies in advance.

Also, we interview ourselves for Kierygeek about fandoms and what makes us do what we do. You can find Kierygeeks's youtube channel at: http://www.youtube.com/user/kierygeek.
