Episode 57 | Burnt Ends 3: Burnter Ends

In which Alia and Dan are joined by their friend Adam to discuss all sorts of bits that didn't fit into another podcast, including: Is IT scarier than a saucepan (no)? Will JJ mess up episode IX (no)? Is The Hateful Eight the greatest Tarantino film (no)? And will Alia die of a Tuberculosis mid-episode (potentially yes)? The much, much longer answers to these questions on Episode 57 of NERD BUILD (caps for emphasis)!

Episode 55 | Nifty Listies: A TV Show A Year - Part One

In which we continue our birthday tradition with a sequel to last year's "A Movie A Year" episode. This time around it's TV shows and we list our favorite debuting show from every year we have been alive (with lots of honorable mentions). Join in by making your own list, and stay tuned for Part Two coming next week!

Episode 53 | DuckTales

In which Dan and Alia con-DUCK-t a spec-QUACK-ular discussion of the BEAKs and valleys of the new DuckTales reboot! Hear us harp on about all things Duckberg, the absolute incomprehensible dialogue of Donald, all alongside a long diversion into what makes an effective reboot. Just try not to get DuckTales stuck in your head now...WhooOO!

Episode 50 | Game of Thrones

In which Alia and Dan discuss the epic return of Game of Thrones.  First, we reminisce of Thrones gone by, the book series by George RR Martin, and the ways in which the series has played with the structure and stories of the novels.  Then, after spoiling every inch of the first 5 books and 6 seasons, we spoil all of the season 7 premiere.  Hope you've seen it.  Or don't mind knowing how Tyrion dies.  JUST KIDDING.  Or are we?! (We are) [or maybe not].

Episode 43 | Twin Peaks Retrospective

In which Alia and Dan get straight hyped up for Showtime's revival of the GOAT, Twin Peaks.  We talk damn fine pie, the wild tone, the influence of the show, the mad dips in quality, GORDON COLE, the incredible and diverse cast, Fire Walk With Me (and watching it on the BIG SCREEN at the Loft Cinema in Tucson), what we expect from the revival, and way too much about owls.

Episode 16 | Dan and Alia's Anime Corner: Volume One

In which we delve into a genre with which we have very little experience: Anime! As a regular segment we are going to watch a few episodes of different anime shows and talk about them. Up this time are One Punch Man, Fruits Basket, and Cowboy Bebop. At the end we also touch on what other things we have been up to lately.

Have a particular anime you would like us to watch? Let us know!

Episode 12 | The Legendary Hall H at SDCC 2016

In which we talk about our experiences in Hall H this year, including waiting in line for a million hours, and all the panels: Justice League, Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, King Arthur, Kong Skull Island, Lego Batman, Star Trek 50th Anniversary, Aliens 30th Anniversary, Women Who Kick Ass, Spiderman Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, and the reveal of Captain Marvel!

Episode 10 | Triple Double Crunch-cast

In which we eat Taco Bell, and other things.

Yes, the title of this episode might be based on the newest menu offering at Taco Bell (which we mention), but this podcast is about so much more! The main focus is the video game Gone Home, but we also talk about The Guild, Harry Potter, Stranger Things, and the other bits and pieces we have been up to lately.
