The Nerd & Tie Podcast
9 minutes | 20 days ago
We’re Joining Forces With Chippewa Valley Mainstreet Radio!
While Nerd & Tie has a global audience, we’ve always felt Foolish that we don’t dedicate more resources to where we’re based — Northwestern Wisconsin. With that in mind, this April is bringing some big changes to the network. We’ve decided to join forces with the local podcast network Chippewa Valley Mainstreet Radio! Chippewa Valley Mainstreet Radio will bring you all of the latest informed opinions from host Steve Monticello. We know that people will seemingly believe anything, so this April (and beyond) we don’t want you to get fooled. That means from now on, besides bringing you shows like Stormwood & Associates, Cool & Unusual Punishment, BS-Free Witchcraft, and Nerd Star EDM, we’ll also be bringing you great shows like Accountant with an Ale, Recycled Language (hosted by a local waste disposal company here in the Chippewa Valley) and Feast Mode Children (where we discuss how gross it is to watch children eat). All of their shows are moving here to Nerd & Tie, and we can’t wait. Attached to this post is the latest episode of Chippewa Valley Mainstreet Radio’s “Voice of the Valley” just to whet your appetite. Because we’re being 100% serious right now. Trust us. We would never lie about this. Never.

165. Snyder’s Sweater Sniffer
On this month of the Nerd & Podcast Trae is reviewing the Snyder Cut, Zack Snyder effectively told off alt-right youtubers Geeks + Gamers, and we talk about the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Solider. We also ask the important question of when will it be safe to go to conventions again. That’s a complicated one.

164. Everything is Terrible
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie Podcast, things ain’t great. We start out just by urging you not to go to the few conventions that are too stupid (and/or greedy) to cancel. After that we cover Gina Carano’s firing from Disney, how Joss Whedon is a turd, and WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY. But on the upside, WandaVision is great?

163. Playing Catch Up
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie Podcast we’re talking about all the media we’ve been catching up on lately. Before that though, we mourn the loss of Mira Furlan, talk about the mess at MAGFest, Gen recounts her virtual Evercon, and we ponder the Godzilla vs. Kong trailer. We also meander throughout, and talk about how nice it is to stay indoors when it’s so cold outside. Guys, January in Wisconsin is chilly. Trust us. This episode was sponsored by Phoenix Black!

162. The Best and Worst of 2020!
The year is coming to an end, and that means it’s time for our annual Year in Review episode! We go through the very best and worst of movies, TV shows, video games, anime, and conventions like we do every year… only this year, some of these categories are a lot harder to figure out. Because, y’know, 2020. This episode was sponsored in memory of Paul “The Herald” Holmen.

161. When Can We Have Nice Things?
This month on The Nerd & Tie Podcast we eventually get around to asking the important question “When will be able to go to conventions again?” Before that though, we follow a meandering road through Apple’s new M1 powered Mac computers, Johnny Depp still being terrible, Deadpool 3 actually being greenlit, and a whole bunch of other upcoming movies we’re at least curious about. It’s a fun ride, even if it’s not a well organized one.

160. Spooky Stuff to Stream
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie Podcast we’re talking about spooky stuff you can stream this Halloween to get in the spirit (since all parties are cancelled for obvious pandemic reasons). Like sure, there’s a lot of new stuff on demand too, but why not take advantage of the streaming libraries you’re already paying for? Before that though we catch up on convention news, where LA Comic Con has come to its senses (and cancelled), and Walker Stalker Con is weirdly back from the dead.

159. The Gross, the Dumb, and the Dangerous
On this episode of The Nerd & Tie Podcast we’re all back in the studio to talk about some serious and weird convention news. We’re focusing on three news stories this month, starting with Oregon based artist (and convention regular) Stephen “OutNerdMe” Poon getting indicted on child sex abuse charges. Then we lighten things up with Tennessee based Bubba Fest, whose owner made a post mocking the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, accused John Barrowman of Tax Evasion, and was somehow shocked that there was backlash about it? Finally our last story is about how, in the middle of a pandemic, LA Comic Con is still planning to move forward. Yeah, this is the world we live in apparently.

158. The DC Carnival of Madness
On this episode of The Nerd & Tie Podcast (with Trae taking the month off) Gen and Nick are tackling all of the news from DC Fandome. From the video game news, to the movie news, to… the stuff DC and Warner Bros probably hoped to distract you from. It’s a good time.

157. The Best of the Secret Podcasts
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie podcast we dig out our biggest secrets. Those would, of course, be The Secret Podcasts. For those unaware, we often record secret ten minute shows while at cons which get posted to a hidden part of the site. Rather than make you hunt for them though, we’ve created this special of some of our favorites (including a never released episode which features Sean and Vinnk of Famicom Dojo). We’ve previously released some compilation episodes which were available temporarily, but this one’s sticking around.

156. Because Florida
Incredibly we actually have some convention news to discuss this month, but none of it is all that great to hear. San Japan’s chair has stepped down due to a pretty tone deaf tweet to start with, and a couple of Florida conventions have decided that the best time to run an event is… during a global pandemic. Because, well, Florida. Important Links: San Japan Chair Steps Down Florida had a convention

155. Recast and Recut
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie Podcast we talk about Ruby Rose leaving the CW’s Batwoman and HBO Max’s announcement of an actual “Snyder Cut” of Justice League. We also talk about Gen Con 2020’s cancellation, the arrest of the perpetrator of the KyoAni fire, and our general mental health during this ongoing pandemic. Oh, and there’s a new member of the Hall of Awesome.

154. A Coronavirus Conference
On this episode of Nerd & Tie we decided to check in around the network to see how everyone is doing during the current lock down. Joining Nick, Gen and Trae for this episode are folks from Stormwood & Associates (Kyle Johnson), Let’s Be Legendary (Megzie Sass-Council, Cris Sass-Council, Molly Hexcroft), and Famicom Dojo (Sean Corse). We talk about what we’re doing, what we’re playing, and how we’re coping. Before that though, we do our job and hit the headlines. San Diego Comic Con and Anime Expo have both been cancelled for obvious reasons, and ACE Comic Con is suing GrowTix. It’s an adventure to say the least. Oh, and Trae loses power near the end of the episode, and stuff gets super weird.

153. Coronavirus Cancellation
Hey guys, we’re primarily a convention podcast, but everything is cancelled. I mean if it isn’t, it should be. The Nerd & Tie team is trying to cope as best they can, and this fever dream of a podcast episode is what resulted. Trae is stress laughing, Nick is just stressed out, and Gen is almost out of toilet paper. This is where we are, this is how we’re dealing, and we hope you’re okay too. Oh, and while you’re at it, join our Discord.

152. Con Chaos and Collapse
The con scene has been chaotic this last month, and we have a lot to cover. FurCon attendees rescue a woman from assault, Kitchener Comic Con’s absolute weirdness, more cons ban “Ahegao” clothes, and Walker Stalkers LLC/Fan Fest Events seems to be collapsing. But first we talk about the recent passing of Elyse Rosenstein, co-founder of the first Star Trek convention.

149. Our Rise of Skywalker Plot Guesses
This episode of Nerd & Tie was recorded before a live audience at Youmacon 2019, in Detroit, MI! In it, we try to predict the plot of the upcoming Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker and how the Skywalker saga will end. Before that though, we hit the headlines with all of the drama around Walker Stalker Con, and other things bubbling in the Star Wars realm. Nick and Gen are gone for this episode, so Miles Reid-Lobatto (of Takoyaki Entertainment is filling in for this episode.

148. Fact Check Your Geek News
On this episode of Nerd & Tie our big topic is the spread of, for lack of a better term, “fake news” in the geek news world. We talk about how it’s important to check the sources of articles before sharing and just how frustrating it is when your friends don’t. Before that we hit the headlines, where Robotech is moving to Funimation, Vic Mignogna’s lawsuit has been completely tossed, and the live action Cowboy Bebop has been delayed due to John Cho’s knee injury. It’s an interesting episode for sure.

147. Your Mandatory Vic Mignogna Update
On this episode of Nerd & Tie we’re checking in with the current state of Vic Mignogna’s lawsuit against Funimation, Jamie Marchi, Monica Rial, and Ron Toye — and man, is it a doozy of an update. Before that though, we talk about the passing of Aron Eisenberg along with the sad event that took place at a hotel adjacent to the CrunchyRoll Expo. Also, we cover the bizarre situation with alt-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos and Midwest FurFest. That’s a whole thing on its own. Important Links: Our Vic Mignogna Tag
