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 #28 - Exit The Dragon 2017

We continue to recover from DragonCon 2017. We remember what we can about Intoxicast Vol. 2: Electric Malibu and hold court on what we'll call the next one. Much of what we did at DragonCon can be seen on our Instagram (@nerdblisspod). While Tina rides her high from our last improv show, Alex talks about his daughter's Wonder Woman cosplay aspirations and shares some stories from his charity work. Finally, we give our impressions of The Orville and play the (Fried Green) Rotten Tomatoes...

Episode #27 - Intoxicast Vol. 2: Electric Malibu

Guests: James & Jessica Moser, Jonathan Wheatley, and Arnold This is our second Intoxicast recorded on Friday, September 1st, 2017 at DragonCon in Atlanta, GA. If you haven't gathered by the title already, we basically got drunk and recorded an episode. What a really good idea, eh? As Chris points out several times in this episode, we recorded in our 51st-floor hotel room in the Westin Peachtree. We hope you enjoy it, but if you don't please know that this is not what you will normally get...

Episode #26 - Bob & September Day Carter - Voice Talents Extraordinaire

You may not know the names Bob Carter and September Day Carter, but you've probably heard their voices and didn't know it. Whether it's that ubiquitous Pandora ad, the text-to-speech voice on the Kindle Fire, the Stacy's Pita Chips commercial, or Mary Kay ads, or perhaps Balrog in Street Fighter, or Shao Khan and Baraka in Mortal Kombat, or The Iron Guard in Destiny 2 get the idea. They've done A LOT of voice over, and they teach their craft from The Neighborhood studio in Atlanta....

Episode #25 - Dragon Pros and Dragon Cons

In this episode, we tell of our preparations for DragonCon! Chris, Tina, and Eric will be there and we plan to record Intoxicast Vol 2.: Electric Malibu while we're there.

We also talk about Joss Whedon, xHamster, Xena, and more. Signal Boost: Earth Station One, The Bearded...

Episode #24 - A Drop of Golden Sun

MILD SPOILER WARNING: Defenders While Chris works on his Joker impersonation, Alex and Dave come to terms with their daughters advancing to college and high school and we make our best efforts to keep the train on the rails. We almost succeed. Almost. NBC seems to think reviving Miami Vice and The Munsters is a good idea. Chris tells the story of Richard Horvitz asking him for directions to the food court, and we discuss a lot things in between. Signal Boost: Geek Radio Daily, Guardians...

Episode #23 - Pickle Rat Morty

In this episode we talk about the rumored Star Trek series by Nicholas Meyer, the "post an unpopular opinion" meme, the creators of Rick & Morty receiving a jug of McDonald's Szechuan Sauce, and we trail off into a conversation about Daym Drops and spicy food. But we spend most of this episode trying to think of the name of a lesser known Gene Roddenberry series. (It was Earth: Final Conflict, by the way.)

Dave is back! We talk about the movie Atomic Blonde, the Justice League mustache controversy, Tina's trial of Comixology Unlimited, the passing of voice actor June Foray, and more.

Episode #9 - Trash Pandas, Treklanta & Timelords

Topics NOTE: We failed to mention screenwriter David Gerrold as a guest at Treklanta. He is best known as the writer of the episode The Trouble With Tribbles. (see photo below) Who is Bjo Trimble? It is not an exaggeration to say that Bjo Trimble is the Godmother of fandom. Unless you were watching Star Trek when it first aired in 1966, if you consider yourself a Star Trek fan today you owe that fact to Bjo Trimble. Star Trek was facing cancellation after its second season due to falling...
