About This Show
NerdVsWorld is a podcast from two thirtysomething nerds from Oxford: Brendan and Spindles. It is the amalgamation of Brendan's NerdVsWorld youtube show and Si and Ady's Eclectic Technicolour Podcast of Awesome.
Every fortnight the lads tackle the latest news in Film, TV, Comics, Gadgets, Nerd Culture and more. Each show also features a track from either a local unsigned artist or a band or artist we're particularly enamoured with.
As well as this we also have special guests on the show in the form of various authors, actors and musicians. So far there have been appearances from the likes of Robert Rankin, Jonathan Green, Emma Newman, Megan Hayes, Professor Elemental and Bitter Ruin to name but a few.

Rated 5 out of
A great little podcast about nerd culture.
Great, honest film reviews and insights into nerd culture. A nice change from the cynicism of some critics, and the pandering of others. They call it how the see it, always remaining fair where possible. Great chemistry and friendly banter between the hosts, who are often out at conventions and festivals to really be at the heart of nerd culture.
