For our very first Star Trek episode, we take a look at the history of the long-running show, it’s cultural impact on both nerd-based and regular society, and ask serious questions such as “What’s the best iteration of Star Trek, and why is it The Next Generation?”
We are now officially past the halfway point of season 8, which will conclude Game of Thrones. And man, is it going to be a sad day when this wonderful, amazing fantasy world comes to a close.
For this episode, we’re taking a quick break from our #RoadToMTAC2019 series to discuss Netflix’s sci-fi animated anthology series “Love, Death + Robots”. Ted White joins the podcast once again to take a deep-dive into the first season of the series, and go through it episode by episode to discuss things like varying animation styles, concepts/theories, and of course all of the gritty-ness that the show has to offer.
Hello! Today we welcome back Jaime Bruder and Catie Fenley (featured on Episode #14), to discuss HBO Original Series. We broke this episode into 3 segments:
Segment 1 (4:03): We discuss the “special sauce” the HBO uses for its original series to make them so great.
Segment 2 (15:30): We throw out our top 3 favorite series, as well as some of our honorable mentions.
Segment 3 (51:10): We wrap up the episode by “pitching” a series that one of us hasn’t seen before. Catie pitches The Sopranos to David, David pitches Six Feet Under to Jaime, and Jaime pitches Girls to…well…basically you guys, since all three of us have already seen the show.

In our latest episode, David welcomes back Catie Fenley, who helped out on Episode #08 where we discussed The Office and Parks & Rec. David also welcomes for the first time on the podcast Jaime Bruder and Mark Conwell. During our discussion, we touch on many different topics, such as some of the big reveals we saw from this season, popular fan theories floating around on the internet, and our predictions for the eighth and final season.
P.S. We are very sorry about the audio quality. Someone made a boo boo (cough cough David).
“It’s bigger on the inside.” “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey.” “Don’t blink.” Do any of these quotes confuse the hell out of you? Because they certainly have that effect on me. Today we talk with Lindsay Cobb-Dassau (sister-in-law to David) to get the low-down on the basics of Doctor Who. Our hope is that, after this episode, you will have a better understanding of the show, and why it’s so damn popular.
Today’s episode features our second guest Catie Fenley! She is a superfan of both The Office and Parks and Rec, so we decided to have a chat about both of the shows. David and Catie touch on numerous points, such as which show had the better on-screen romance, which had the better quotes, and some of the long-running jokes that the shows boasted.
Netflix has quite the abundance of viewing material, both from their streaming services as well as their DVD mail order service. However, their original series have taken over these past few years as their bread and butter. In today’s episode, we discuss how Netflix has broken the mold as a streaming service, successfully transitioned into being a provider of original content, and changed the way we consume entertainment. We also came up with our own top 5 favorite Netflix Original Series.
In addition to today’s topic, we started a new segment (name pending, Nerdy News Update maybe?) where we each talk about something that’s been in the news of geek-media.
