Episode 39 | The Fate Of The Furious

In which Alia and Dan ride or die.  Or talk all about the newest entry in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise.  One of those.  On this spoiler-filled episode of Nerd Build, we discuss the action-packed Fate of the Furious and the sprawling journey of the Furious story, our hopes for the future of the series, and who would win in a fight between The Rock and a Harrier Jet.  Hint: it's The Rock.  All this, and more, on Episode 39 of Nerd Build!

Episode 37 | Power Rangers

In which in the midst of a Twitch Power Rangers marathon binge, Dan and Alia get the urge to dive into the big budget reboot of the rainbow-clad, Mighty Morphinomenal 90s treasure.  Did this update hurricane-kick its way into our hearts?  Or did we leave feeling (Rita) repulsed? Exactly how awesome is it to see the Megazord do a German Suplex?  All the answers to these questions and more on Episode 37 of Nerd Build!

Episode 36 | Beauty and the Beast

In which our friends Adam and Cameron join us to discuss the latest in Disney's lineup of live action remakes, Beauty and the Beast.  Does this big budget retelling stand on its own merits or did our rose-tinted goggles make us nostalgia-drunk?  Will we continue to use antlers in all of our decorating? Does Emma Watson sound like T-Pain? All this, and more, on Nerd Build #36!

Episode 31 | The Lego Batman Movie

In which, after a three week break where we were sick and out of town a lot, we are back! Today we had free preview screening tickets to The Lego Batman Movie and are here to tell you about how much fun it was, and how you should go see it. But, you know, it takes like an hour for us to say all of that....

Episode 30 | Burnt Ends

In which we talk about all the bits and pieces of what we have been up to lately. Topics include movies we have been watching, books we have been reading, upcoming cosplays Alia is planning, and of course, wrestling! And don't worry the wrestling part is at the end in case you want to tune out.  Sometimes it's nice to do a non-themed episode and just chat. What have you been into lately? We would love to hear about it!

(Delicious actual burnt ends not included.)

Episode 27 | A Final Fantasy Podcast For Fans And First-Timers

In which we explore grand, nerdy topic -- Final Fantasy -- in the original "Nerd Build" style: Alia's got fresh eyes for Chocobos and Dan's got the outlook of a jaded, wily veteran who has seen his share of spiky, gravity-defying haircuts.  We delve into the newest (and oft delayed) entry in the beloved franchise, Final Fantasy XV, and give our early impressions.  

Episode 23 | 31 Days Of Halloween: Week Four
