Get ready for the new daily show

The Following the Nerd Podcast Ep 123 “Live long and prosper”

March 10th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Hello and welcome to the latest episode of the following the nerd show.

On the show this week we’ll be looking at the week’s biggest stories in the nerdsphere…

We’ll be looking back at the career of the great Leonard Nimoy who died last week, leaving behind a legacy that most can only dream about and a feeling of loss in the hearts of many.

One of the big stories this week came from the ceo at Warner Bros who said the DC movies are much edgier and more realistic than the Marvel movies.

We’ll also be looking at The Walking Dead and what exactly is going on with heart-throb character Daryl Dixon who we haven’t seen very much this last few weeks – and does the write up for the season finale hold a dark secret that will really get under the skin of the fans?

Plus, Sony promises that, from next year, we’ll never play video games the same way as, at long last, virtual reality looks like it’s going to be a thing.

The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo sign up for Sony and speculation is that this is tied into the new unity with Marvel… and we have some amazing – see what i did there? – Spider-man movie rumours.

And finally, Stephen Amell has shared comments on social media that strongly hint one of the Arrow characters are about to bow out.

Plus, I’ll be talking about why the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is awesome, but has me a tad worried.

We’ll also have Stuart from the Monday Movie Show podcast on with the latest movie news and boxoffice top ten countdown

As always, I’m your host Marc and with me once more in the studio I have the man who, just this week, pulled the leg off a Robin… action figure.

a man who, Even though he didnt exist for them, can quote almost every movie from the 1980s but, like most of us, he can’t really remember what happened yesterday and who, as a small boy pulled, out all his teeth and cashed them in so the tooth fairy would cough up the full set of Extreme Ghostbusters action figures. His family know him as Stephen but to everyone else he’s known simply as… Saxon.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
