Nerdy Point of View

The World Seen Through The Eyes Of Nerds

The Official Website for the Nerdy Point of View!

A Decent Proposal

This is our biggest episode yet! We get Martin back this week to join us with Brian, Kerry, and Matty! We do a live show, we talk about phobias, coffee and tea, and things we haven't tried for fear of becoming addicted...oh yeah and then there is the matter of Brian proposing to Kerry live on the show.

If podcasts had event episodes, we are pretty sure this one would qualify. If you are a fan of the show then you definitely don't want to miss this one, and if you haven't started listening then this is a good time to start!

The Pac Man Tournament

We interrupt your regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you a special one-off episode of The Nerdy Point of View Podcast! We were invited by the fine folks at Red Bull and Coin Op Game Room in Downtown San Diego to record an episode of the podcast with Julian Davila from inside the Red Bull truck! We talked about local gaming culture, the really awesome Pac Man Red Bull can and other special packaging by companies, and about gaming tournaments. It was a hell of a time and a truly awesome experience. We hope you enjoy!

And if you are local to San Diego, make sure to check out the Coin Op Game Room in Downtown San Diego. Great food, great drinks, and an amazing staff. It is a very cool place and we can't wait to go back!

Canadian Bacon

We are dropping a sick beat with this episode, and by that I mean we are talking about some pretty divisive stuff. Well, really just the Canadian Bacon portion of the show, but we also talk about Holidays we wish existed, Disney, and theme park etiquette! Make sure to tune in and also to check out the subject of our community shout out, The Lucky Die Podcast! You can find them on Twitter or iTunes!

Nerdy Point of Feels

Today we welcome guest host Matt Foust back to the show! Filling in for the Villain of the show, Martin Franklin, it was an honor to bring Matty on board to shoot the hay with us. And shoot the hay we did! We talked all about prisons and alternative rehabilitation methods, our go to dishes to cook when we are cooking for people (with a special shout out to desserts!), and finally in honor of Thanksgiving in America we shared what we were thankful for this year. And this week our community shout out went out to all of our listeners and the TTRPG community at large for allowing us to live our crazy dreams! We love you all, and can never thank you enough for helping us live our dreams. 

Halloween BOOnanza!

Time for our annual Halloween Boonanza! Sure, it's November, but we care not! We recorded a live Episode the day before Halloween and had a lot of fun gushing over our favorite Holiday with special guest Alex! You can find her on Twitter and on Twitch! We talked all things Halloween, told scary true stories, and shared our favorite aspects of the Holiday. If you love Halloween then you don't want to miss this!

Nerdy POV LIVE!

For the first time ever, we did a live show while we recorded the podcast! We talked about a lot of fun things in this one. We talked about the trend of video games moving to online only, we shared some of our guilty pleasures and revealed some of our deepest, darkest secrets, and we also lamented the loss of fast food items that we can't get anymore. Special community shout out this week goes to Welcome Party RPG! Make sure to check them out on Twitter and on Twitch!

Finally, We Talk Tank Girl

Today we were thrilled to welcome back Nina Larson as a guest! We chatted about how we explain our passions to people who maybe aren't that into it, what show or movie we would love to see rebooted, and what trading card games we used to love. Plus, not just one but TWO musical numbers! Community shout out this week goes to our dear friend LJ Heydorn.

Pumpkin Spice

The Nerds are here this week, and we are kicking it off with Pumpkin Spice. Is it a more divided conversation than Pineapple on Pizza? You have to listen to find out! We also talked about what non-live action media we would love to see get the live action treatment, and what common traits do our TTRPG characters tend to have? Our community shout out this week goes to The Greyhawk Channel! Check them out on Twitter and Twitch!

Gnome in a Haversack

For this week's episode we were fortunate to have special guest Deven Rue on the show with us! We had a great chat about what started us down the path of becoming creators, what we have been told that we were bad at and how we dealt with it, and what Dungeons and Dragons monster we would love to either face or use against players in a campaign! It was such a pleasure to be able to chat with Deven, so make sure to check her out on Twitter @DevenRue and make sure to check out her patreon and her website! As always, we had a special community shout out and this week it went to Murder Dice Podcast!

Superfight!

We are back and better than ever! It's been a while since we had a good old fashioned showdown with each other, so we decided to put together a versus match of what pop culture characters we would like to see duke it out! Then we took it a step further by playing a couple of altered rounds of Superfight! Finally we talked a little bit about failure and the lessons we have learned from it. Our community shout out this week goes out to Jack Dire, who created Superfight along with a host of other games. You can find Jack on Twitter @Jack_Dire, and you can check out his podcast and the games he has created at JackDire.com!

We're Back!

After a short (long) hiatus, your favorite nerds are back and reinvigorated to torment your earholes with a new episode! In this episode we talk about what we were up to during the hiatus and what TTRPGs other than Dungeons and Dragons 5E that we have played, loved, and want to play again and what TTRPG we have not tried and would like to. We also talked about the little things that make us happy, and what skills we didn't know we had that we discovered and want to hone. It was a lot of fun getting back into the proverbial studio, and we have missed you all while we were gone! This week's community shout out goes to friend of the show Matt Foust at @SoMattyGamez on Twitter!

Whatever Happened to Lucy Liu?

What a jam packed episode we have for you! The topics this week are what part of ourselves could we not live without, favorite snack foods, and whether we are introverts or extroverts, yet somehow we spent a lot more time talking about Lucy Liu, trying new strange foods, and self care. We never said we were perfect! Special community shout out this week goes out to our friends over at the Dead Horse Podcast!

Mashed Potatoes

We were happy to have Wes Cordell on this episode of the show! We de-railed (and re-railed) many, many times but it was a ton of fun! We talked about whatvideo games got us hooked on gaming, what we are most looking forward to, and then we talked about internet lingo for a while and how much it makes us cringe. In honor of Wes being on the show, this weeks community shout out went to Hit Dice! Hit Dice! is an awesome actual play 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons podcast, and we can't recommend it highly enough to you! Click here to check it out!

Long Live The Queen

Today the Nerds were excited to have the one and only Dan Ryckert on the show! Naturally we talked way too much about Taco Bell (But really, can one ever talk TOO much about Taco Bell?), but also dove into the ethics of gene editing. Finally, we also shared our favorite pranks that we have pulled and also shared some of the pranks that got pulled on us in return. It was a lot of fun recording this one, and we hope you laugh as much listening as we did chatting!

Gotta Catch Em All!

Hey there fellow Nerds! In this episode we talked about what the last books we read were, and whether we prefer digital or old school paper books. Then we get way too excited about Pokemon and which ones are our favorites (and give Nintendo a little trouble for not making a proper Pokemon console game). Finally we shared out superstitions (or lack thereof) which led to Martin and Brian talking like old men for a reason. We make no sense most of the time. Special community shout out to Nerdarchy and all the fine content they produce on their YouTube channel!

A Starbucks Love Affair

Hello fellow nerds! We were pleased to have Martin return to the show after a short break, and even more pleased to be joined by the ever amazing @DeathByMage of DeathByMage.com! We had a blast talking about what things we enjoy that we would turn into musicals (shout out to Future Man!), what apps we can't live without (here's looking at you Starbucks), and our favorite fight scenes in movies! It was a blast getting to chat with Mage! Our community shout out this week goes to @Snickelsox who has a Kickstarter going live next week for the Retroverse!
