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”.

Tina and I went to see Bumblebee. It really should have been the first Transformers movie. Hear us explain why. Also, season 2 of The Orville premiered in December 2018, and not wanting to miss a chance to talk about The Orville, we discuss it. Dan just started watching it recently and he renders his verdict.

More
This was originally going to be Patreon material. This is the second part of our discussion from Episode #89. We get a bit more political in this episode, and talk about New Year's goals, but most importantly, we get to enjoy the Cadbury Wunderbars that our good friend Kelly in Canada sent us!

Episode #89 - F**k You, 2018!

1/5/2019
More
There really is no better way to say it. The cast of TNBP is PROUD to say 'Fuck you, 2018!'. Last year, with some notable exceptions, was pretty much a shit show for all of us. But we're back for 2019 doing what we love to do; talk about the stuff we're passionate about, and generally bitch and moan. Happy New Year!

Episode #87 - Khan v Undiscovered Country v Gilbert Gottfried

11/30/2018
More
Where is Gilbert Gottfried? Seriously. And look, nothing in the writing of Rick & Morty has anything to do with E. B. White, okay? Now that that's out of the way, Chris and Dan throw down about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Which one do you like better?

11/25/2018
More
We have not yet seen The Crimes of Grindenwold, but the word on the street is not good. We talk about the grand Wookiee holiday of Life Day before discussing She-Ra and The Princesses of Power. We then learn the truth about the "biopic" Bohemian Rhapsody.

11/17/2018
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.

Episode #81 - Not All Heroes Wear Mini Skirts

10/12/2018
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. We're probably more stoked for this than we let on, and we let on quite a bit.

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...

Episode #79 - Captain Marvel Destroys Punditry

9/29/2018
More
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...

More
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...
