Jessica Merizan stops by to talk about community management at BioWare, Crabcat Industries, Try This At Home on Nerdist, and… tomahawks?! We also discuss the latest from the Marvel movie circuit and the announcement that JJ Abrams is directing Star Wars VII. Finally, you talk community events with us in our NAQOTW. So throw your keys in the bowl, sit back, and relax.
We’ve been covering the creative folks at Crabcat Industries for ages now and are stoked to share with you the very first episode of their Nerdist series Try This at Home With Crabcat Industries. If you’re curious about Crabcat and what they do, you should check out Morgan Spurlock’s beautiful documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: a Fan’s Hope. Try this at Home aims to help viewers with a wide variety of projects from prop building to power suits. I can’t wait to see the freaking power suits!
Ash and Scott return from Star Wars Celebration VI to bring you tales of fun from a galaxy far, far away. We do spoiler-free talk about the season finale’s of Newsroom and True Blood. And, in the spirit of SWCVI, we ask: What is your Bounty Hunter name? Hijinks ensue as the gang prepares for PAX Prime. We’re going to need a bigger bacta tank.
The gang is back from Comic Con and we give you the rundown on all the adventures. Also we talk about your dream con panels. Somehow, we also spend half the episode talking about Vorcha thongs. So, um, yeah.
We love what both Geek and Sundry and The Nerdist are doing for pop-culture. By highlighting creative and intelligent individuals that typically don’t get a ton of attention, Nerdist Industries lets people know that it’s okay to be an art nerd, or a science nerd. Nerdist lets you know that it’s totally okay to be exactly who or what you want to be.
How fast does it take to get from Santa Monica to San Diego? Under 12 parsecs? Chris Hardwick and the fine folks at Nerdist Industries are hosting a force filled Star Wars relay race from Santa Monica, CA all the way to a nerd-frenzied San Diego Comic-Con… and we’ll be there.
I was desperate. My music selection was depressing me, and local talk radio was starting to sound like a Ford commercial. Considering that I spend about an hour of my day on average commuting, I went on the hunt for some podcasts last year that ended up making my driving experience much more enjoyable. Did I mention that these are all FREE to download?
