This week, the Nerds discuss the recent announcement of Ben Affleck being cast as Batman, then they welcome local filmmaker Lon Lopez as their guest to talk about this documentary Rock the Block, and finishes off with Nerds on History co-host Eric Bricmont bringing back the Movie Quote Game! Enjoy!
Last week, I shared with you Steps 1 and 2 for how to complete a college degree in preparation for your imminent career as a superhero. One that may even make Phoenix Jones go “Damn!”
Shall we continue? A-thank you!
STEP 3: Plot Out Your Courses
All the following courses are based out of (read: blatantly and shamelessly borrowed from) a 2010 Course Catalog within the California State University system (San José State University, to be exact). They have been balanced to cover all General Education requirements, and exceed the standard 120 unit requirement that most 4-year colleges have for conferring Bachelor’s degrees.
With the powers of Nerds of Film and Culturally Ill combined, we litigate the hell out of Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition. We laughed. We laughed. We laughed. Ben laughed way too loudly. Bryan didn’t cry. Sean came. Ethan drank. In the end we landed…pretty much exactly where we started! But we had a lot of fun, made a lot of jokes, and talked for about an hour longer than we intended.
Eric and Bryan welcome author and historian Maureen Ogle onto the show to talk about her new book In Meat We Trust: An Unexpected History of Carnivore America. Listen as they explore a unique perspective on the history of food in America.
