Time for another Nerdfest podcast - and time is the optimum word! Dan opens the show with his recommendation of a clock (it’s better than it sounds, trust us) before we get chatting about the new series of Dr Who in which we have a brand new Time Lord in the form of Jodie Whittaker. Our other recommendations include the BBC’s Bodyguard, Hotel Artemis, and a great documentary find of Ian’s, that looks behind the scenes of the lives of stand up comedians. We round off the show with Hazel’s...

We’ve been away for a bit but the nerds are officially back in town! In this show our film quiz ‘Buff or Bluff’ covers the world's most Batshit-crazy "Batman" stories, plus some “Rocky”, Firefly", and Stan Lee trivia you won’t have heard before (unless you read the internet...) and we find out Jon's not-so-secret Sushi recipe. For our recommendations we review "Disenchantment", "The Meg", "Hereditary", "BlacKKKlansman", and "Ant Man and the Wasp". And Hazel picks her Born Identity - ultimate...

We start discussing an Infinity War trailer, but get slightly sidetracked by various Karen Gillan fantasies. After that our 'Nerd Recommendations' feature brings reviews of Netflix's "Annihilation", "I, Tonya", "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" and, for some reason, a David Baddiel live show. Film Buff or Film Bluff is our regular quiz, which this time tests our knowledge on movie sound effects, Wonder Woman and, erm, porn parodies. And finally, Ian offers a review of the much loved TV series...

We get all Star Wars-y in this episode as Shameful Gap is back with a, erm, bang! Peter had never seen 'Revenge of the Sith' so sit back and listen as we discuss that film and the wider Star Wars universe (plus we get ourselves into an entertaining discussion on the worst CGI in movies). Before all that though is our Film Buff or Film Bluff quiz, which covers everything from Jaws, Top Gun, Alien and the musical Hamilton! We hope you enjoy listening to this podcast as much as we did making it...

This episode we debut our brand new feature: Nerd Court. This is where we take a hotly-debated topic, two of our nerds act as the defence and prosecution, and a nerd judge and jury decide its verdict. In the stocks this time is the TV show "Lost", defended by Dan, and prosecuted by Ian. Also this week we have lots of new recommendations for you, including reviews of "The Shape of Water" and "The Post".

In this episode we have lots of nerdy recommendations from stuff we've seen recently (we mention a few spoilers for "The Last Jedi"). There is also a 'Harry Potter-off' (that sounds dirty, doesn't it?) between two of our biggest Potter nerds which involves a mini Trivial Pursuit challenge. We get slightly distracted by some Star Wars themed Pop Chips, hence the episode title, before concluding with an epic 'Film Buff or Film Bluff' quiz. Enjoy, Please get involved in our nerdy discussions on...

This episode brings back 'Shameful Gap', as Jon gives us his opinion of "Die Hard 2" upon watching it for the very first time (not one for the kids this...). Our Film Buff Or Film Bluff Quiz takes us into the world of James Cameron, Jason Donovan (yes really) and tortoises getting jiggy. Plus, we talk about the Dr Who Christmas Special, and Ian Mayor gives a great review of new Netflix TV show, "The Punisher".
