Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Who, or what, are The Lightning Dogs? They’re a pack of anthropomorphic dogs from another world, trapped on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Armed with special powers and tearing through the Wasteland in their battle-ready vehicles, they combat the evil Glampire’s minions and keep his vampiric reach from extending to the stars! It’s an animated adventure series steeped in the glory of 80s and 90s cartoons… Or at least it could be. Nerdy Show conceived this insane premise by accident in the middle of an episode and now we’re on a quest to see how far we can take it – documenting our journey every step of the way in Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast. New episodes every other Monday.

Episode 19 :: The Lightning Rod

4/16/2017
More
In this episode we make some important decisions about our heroes’ main rides. You’ve heard us pin down the Lightning Dogs three distinct vehicles: The large, armored utility vehicle; the Brutus, the small scout; the Fido, and our all-terrain signature vehicle, the Rover - aka the Lightning Rod. The Lightning Rod is almost done, but one key detail remains: what is it like on the inside? That might sound like a simple enough question, but it becomes a real point of contention as we discuss...

Doing a large scale project in your free time is hard, and in this episode we feel the burn. Join Doug and Cap for some perspective on where exactly we thought Lightning Dogs was heading at this point in the timeline. It had been a year since we'd taken the series behind closed doors and we were getting anxious. Hear us share our foolhardy plans to relaunch Lightning Dogs as an audio drama and other discussions not so much about building The Lightning Dogs’ world, but Lightning Dogs as a...

Episode 14 :: Tubular Tubers

More
Last episode, Doug and Cap expounded on the look and powers for the Lightning Dogs' greatest foe: Glampire. Now, Tony is back in the mix and he's brought some illustrations showcasing his take on the big bad's villainous style. That's only the beginning of this art-fueled journey - because Tony also has in tow some tubular tubers... a concept for a sort of "potato person" living beneath the Wasteland. That peculiar premise kicks off a discussion about different kinds of sentient forces at...

Episode 1 :: Lightning Strikes

Sometimes a great idea is truly like a bolt of lightning. And sometimes, if you're lucky enough, you can capture the exact moment that it strikes. That's what happened for us one fateful night while recording a podcast - we accidentally launched a concept that derailed the entire show and in no time, our lives. We couldn't stop talking about our favorite action figures and b-movies, while twisting them into strange creatures, weird adventures, and dog puns – lots of dog puns. Enter: The...
