For our thirtieth episode, Eric and Bryan decide to add overlooked snippets to their previous episodes, with a very special guest. Enjoy!
If you are a regular listener to the podcasts (www.nerdonomy.com) then you may have heard us drop a few references to the nerdonomy home game. Well this game hasn’t really existed…
UNTIL NOW! (Did you guys just get excited? Because I know I did…)
So here’s the game:
The Setup: First subscribe to the podcasts, and tell your friends about it. Pick a friend or two to play with when a new episode comes out, and pick a Nerd to represent you! You earn points based on what your Nerd does during the podcast. For instance, if I’m listening to an episode of Nerds on History, I can pick Eric and someone else can pick Bryan. If one of the other Nerds is guest hosting on the show, like Kevin, then a third person may join, or those points can go to both players.
Continuing the theme of famous things associated with Halloween, Eric and Bryan discuss history and legends behind monsters, both famous and obscure. We hope you enjoy it; it was a fun one to record!
“Creature of the Black Lagoon” and “Gill-Man” are the property of Universal Pictures.
Hello again dear listeners and readers. Today will consist of numbers 10 to 6. I hope you enjoy!
*Footnote: Again, here are a few key words that helped me narrow my focus on why certain movies were chosen: Risk, originality, genuine, geeky, beauty, closure, intensity.
10 – John Carter – Obviously in the minority, I found John Carter to be captivating, entertaining and visually stunning. It’s a shame that Disney really mucked-up the marketing surrounding the movie. Not many people know that John Carter is based off of a book, A Princess of Mars, which is an integral story, written back in the early 1900s, that influenced the modern-day genres of sci-fi and fantasy. Plus, it inspired MANY of today’s best writers and directors, not to mention movies like the Star Wars saga. Had the marketing focused on that, I think people’s perspectives might have changed.
This week we have something very special for our listeners, a two-part crossover! Listen as Nerds on History co-host Eric Bricmont helps us discuss Thanksgiving in film.
