Though I haven’t recorded an episode of the Branded podcast in awhile, I was lucky enough to be asked back to guest star on another episode of the Nerd Lunch podcast this week. I’m not sure, but I think I might be on the road to eventually becoming the Charo of the nerdy/pop culture podcasting set. Crossing my fingers.
Anyway, back to the Nerd Lunch episode, this week’s theme was all about introducing the guys to the work of Hayao Miyazaki, in particular the film Spirited Away. T hough Jeeg, CT, and Paxton have all experienced some level of anime in the past, none of them have really become fans of the genre perse, so I thought Studio Ghibli might be the way to ease them back in and could very well get them into watching some more Japanese animation. Did it work? Well you’ll have to listen to the discussion to see. You can find episode 24 of the Nerd Lunch Podcast on iTunes, or you can download the episode directly!
We spend the episode discussing the fizzy, syrupy goodness that is soda, a pop culture touchstone that pretty much anyone can relate to. Whether you call it soda, pop, coke, or whatever, chances are you’ve imbibed a bit of one carbonated elixir or another, and you probably also have a favorite. Listen to us talk about our favorites, least favorites, and bunch of general soda nerdery. You can also find their show on iTunes.
I listen to a lot of podcasts, but lately it seems like a bunch of shows that I love have been ending. So I was pretty excited when I discovered a new show that featured some of my favorite bloggers coming together to geek out over the airwaves. The Nerd Lunch podcast debuted this past week, and it features NL alums CT and Jeeg, as well as Paxton from Cavalcade of Awesome!
These guys were gracious enough to invite me in as a guest on their second episode as the 1st in a series of revolving 4th chair hosts. We spend the episode discussing the Back to the Future flicks, which just happens to be one of my favorite franchises from the 80s. So if you want to hear us talk about Marty, Doc, Biff, time travel continuity, the animated series, as well as where we think the future of this film franchise could go them head on over to Nerd Lunch and give the episode a listen. You can also find their show on iTunes.
