About Us

A weekly podcast, discussing pop culture and current events through the lens of various geek subcultures. The underlying theme is to explore everyone’s “nerd,” because everyone has that one subsection of counterculture they dig, and dig deeply. Listeners are invited to lean in to the conversation, acting as a fly on the wall, listening and observing while our hosts wax at length on any topic brought before them. Comics, video games, film and pop culture are always on the table for discussion and the podcast’s unscripted chat is allowed to naturally flow where hosts and guests take it.

Latest Episodes

Unpacking Everything Star Wars with Star Wars Professor Andrew Matranga

Fair warning: spoilers and Star Wars deep-dives ahead. With The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and everything else coming out of that favorite galaxy far, far away, the NerdAF Show is bringing back Star Wars expert Andrew Matranga, who literally teaches a class about Star Wars at the University of Denver. You've heard him on our mics before but this time he takes a deep dive with hosts Tyler Scott, Richard Williams and Hugh Johnson to talk about how it's a good time to be a Star Wars fan. And yes, Baby Yoda gets the deserved attention. Find him at studyingstarwars.com and on Twitter.com/andrewmatranga. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

The Boys, plus NerdAF's take on Walmart Pulling Violent-Game Advertising, and more

EThings start off a little goofy this week but we’ll lead off with a big explicit SPOILER ALERT, to be clear. Our intrepid hosts get serious about Amazon’s “The Boys” and even more so about Walmart’s response to recent gun violence (by pulling in-store advertisements for violent video games). Producer Andy even takes the mic to weigh in, and not just with puns. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
