Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Here's another episode. Episode 12 that is.

You're not crazy, we did just post two episodes back to back. This was one we recorded a few weeks ago with Mary as our guest and I never remembered to post. Sorry.

(Or right click to Save Target As)

Stuff in the show:
Should we have an audience?
Watch "Birth of a Nation." It's awfully racist, and like, 3 hours long.
Check out Dan Aykroyd's vodka brand "Crystal Head Vodka."
Remember Pogs?!?!
RPG craziness.
We talk a little about Star Wars and sci-fi.
Yeah, look at this bullshit:
"E.T. original"
"E.T. re-issue"
We recorded this a long time ago, so disregard our tax talk.

An E3 themed show! Now we're just like G4!

Now that E3 has come and gone, we figured it would be a great way to burn an hour. All the cool kids were doing it. For Episode 11, Bob the insomniac video game geek is our guest and we try to determine who "won" E3 or whatever.

We're back!

We have returned, as promised, Episode 10. Eric joins us again in a wonderful discussion that degrades to meaningless banter over the course of an hour and a half.

(Or right click to Save Target As

We promised to post links to a hundred things during the show. These should be all of them, I think:
Disaster Relief for Joplin, MO
NASA's new Orion vehicle replaces the Shuttle.
The Raspberry Pi is a $25 computer.
Google Wallet and internet commerce
The Filter Bubble and net neutrality.
Thor and more about movies.
We entertain the notion of staging a "Nerd Decathlon".

Using technology to its full potential.
Our favorite clip from the Andy Milonakis Show.

We still exist!!!

Hey everybody, I just wanted to post an update on why the show disappeared. We are still alive and kicking, but there have been a multitude of conflicting events in both of the hosts' personal lives. We should have a new episode up this week. Sorry for the delay and thanks for listening.

Friday, April 8, 2011

Oh I forgot, we have a podcast to run.

Hello everyone! We forgot to mention last show that we were going on a little mini-vacation and would be missing a show. Don't fret, we'll be dropping a couple of shows back to back. We're joined by Kirk for episode 9 and he hassles us about not getting the RSS feed straightened out yet, and proclaims this, "The Big Gay Episode."

(Or right click to Save Target As)

The possibility of doing a show on location, and possibly drunk.
How awful truck nuts are.
What Action Nerds GO! shirts would look like.
