Get Off My Books

Presently the production house known as Nerdy Show is in the midst of some massive movements. After the release of The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program series 2, Cap and Doug dove right into a new major project for Lightning Dogs (still TBA) - so, after a long day of recording stuff they can't talk about quite yet, and no time to assemble a proper episode of Nerdy Show, they grabbed a friend and piled into the studio for a free-wheeling conversation to catch you up on things and hopefully...

Pitching in the Wind

The wildly-swinging hits keep on coming! How far will we veer off of our usual platter of geeky chatter? And for how long? Indefinitely?! Well at the very least we'll always stay true to what you've come to expect from us for the past decade: surreal tangents and strange comedy. In this episode - Cap, La Valle, and Doug team up for a creative experiment in which Cap plays a high-powered Hollywood executive type taking pitches from hapless writers. Which of these absurd ideas will get...

Episode 318 :: Existential Crisis Haunted House

Enter a vortex of horror and existential crisis. We sink our fangs into Netflix's spoopier recent series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the second season of Castlevania.

Episode 317 :: The Boy Who Pooped on a Mountain

Brandon has returned from his trip to Scotland. Did our resident renegade glean any culture while on his first trip overseas? We're not 100% sure, but he definitely left his mark: he pooped on a mountain! Well, more like a hill; but you have to understand, Floridian standards for elevated landmasses are a bit out of whack. Hear tales of enchanted gastrointestinal distress, fried pizza, castles, and, yes: birds. We also discuss camping at Camp Crystal Lake (the video game kind) with Friday...

Episode 315 :: Age & Beauty: Life-Extension Drugs and Staying Young at Heart

Engineered obsolescence: that's what the human body is. It kicks alotta ass and then gets slower, brittler, and much harder to drive.

Join Cap, boR, Jon, and Tony as we test out the latest life-extension drugs, brainstorm the sci-fi benefits of custom-engineered organoids, and stay young at heart with rousing discussions on the new Spider-Man game, the animated series The...

Meanwhile, in Orlando, Cap and Brandon are enjoying curious Chinese cheese-topped teas and British tea parties was well as the refined tastes of the XXX French edutainment...

ALL CAPS: Niche Pop Culture Obsession: Octo Expansion

Brace yourselves for a re-CAP of all the podcastery whatnot Cap has been up to. A Willow vision quest turns into philosophical musings on pop culture obsession. Will curiosity kill the Cap? Can their insatiable lust for knowledge ever be sated? Is progesterone all it's cracked up to be? Is forever friendship a fiction or fact? All-consuming questions abound before giving way to an exploration of the deep sea subway adventures of Splatoon 2's OctoExpansion and Cap's two clams about the...


ALL CAPS: The Aquabats! Super Show! N€€d$ Right€ou$ Comrad€$

PREVIOUSLY! ON NERDY SHOW... The gang had a good laugh about skeleton soup. But enough of that. Let's get serious... SERIOUSLY AWESOME. In lieu of a regularly scheduled episode, you're getting an over-indulgence of your host with the most, Cap. It's no surprise they've got a lot of things on their mind, but there's one thing of paramount importance. The fate of the world might hang in the balance: The Return of The Aquabats! Super Show! It's a super rad television show about America's...
