As the name suggests, we’re nerds, or geeks if you prefer. That doesn’t restrict our topics to Star Trek and hyperdrives. Have you ever heard anyone referred to as a [insert hobby here]-geek/nerd? For example, sewing geeks, car geeks, tech geeks, etc. We want to talk about, and to, all of them as well as traditional geek fare, such as cosplay, sci-fi, fantasy, science, TV & movies, conventions, and fandom of all stripes. We’re even hoping to eventually hit topics such as lifestyle design, music, voice acting, life hacks, health and fitness, and the proverbial “much, much more”.

Episode #84 - Emotionally Charged Slime

11/9/2018
More
How fondly do you remember Ghostbusters II? Chris, Tina, and Eric didn't hate it. The question is, does it stand up to Dan-alysis? Dan jokes that he hates everything (he actually might not be joking), so what chance does Vigo and his emotionally charged slime have? We then, for some reason, talked about the history of the national anthem, and Nickelodeon slime. Oh, and eat your vegetables, kids. There are starving children out there...and you wouldn't want them getting your vegetables.

More
Geoffrey the Giraffe fights for life! We talk about the rebirth and re-branding of Toys R Us into Geoffrey's Toy Box. Will it fail? Will it succeed? What do we want to see from it? What should Geoffrey have learned from the fall of Toys R Us? We also got a good first look at the Season 1 trailer for She-Ra and The Princesses of Power.

Episode #80 - Orson Welles Eats A Planet & The History of Comic Books

10/5/2018
More
Fathom Events brought The Transformers: The Movie back to theaters on September 27th, 2018. For some of us, it was the first viewing of the movie since it came out in the eighties. It was a cheesy kids movie, with very dark moments and a lot of violence thrown in for good measure. We had SO much to say about this movie, and you get to hear it all. Also, we welcome Johnathan Wheatley back to join us in the discussion and to tell us about his podcast The History of Comic Books. ERRATA: Chris...

Conservative pundits Bill Whittle, Steve Green, and Scott Ott have weighed in social justice in modern movies and television. (See their video in our show notes at nerdblisspodcast.com and on our Facebook page.) They seem willing, although reluctantly, to meet the millennial culture where it is in order to cash in on disaffected fans of classic sci-fi and adventure franchises. They think they can make Conservatism appeal to those angry fans. We respond to that video and discuss the notion of...

Hurricane Florence has come and gone, and while there were some people who were seriously impacted by the effects of the storm, the media coverage of Florence was riddled with sensationalism and outright theater. Many on the internet poked fun at this storm and its associated news coverage, and we're no different. That said, we're not heartless. See the link in the notes for ways that you can assist those impacted by Hurricane Florence. Do you know who *IS* heartless though? People who love...

In this episode, we recap our trip to Spartanburg, SC to see Queens to the Rescue do their thing once more. After that, we welcome Kelly Caldwell of Drift - Float & Spa in Greenville, SC. Drift features float tanks that allow you to lie adrift in skin-temperature salt water inside a chamber that's insulated against sound and blocks all light. This results in reduced sensory input.
