The Following the Nerd Podcast Ep 127 “That rug really tied the room together…”

May 10th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Hello and welcome to the latest episode of the Following the Nerd Podcast.

On the show this week we will be talking about all the week’s biggest nerdy news as well as interviewing three awesome guests.

First up, we’ll be chatting to the man who played Walter Bishop in Fringe, Mr John Noble.

Next we’ll be chatting to the very beautiful Katrina Law, Nyssa Al Ghul in TV’s Arrow and finally, Big Phil will be chatting to Red Dwarf’s one and only Cat, Mr Danny John Jules!

Then, in the news, the big story of the week has to be the reveal of the Suicide Squad including Harley Quinn… the female comic character that has put the internet into meltdown. We’ll be giving our thoughts on the look of Mr J’s girlfriend and the rest of the team…

Next up, it looks like the Arrow and Flash spin-off series HAS got a confirmed name and, as we said a few weeks ago, we love the kitschy comic book feel of it.

Plus, Joss Whedon has been getting some very serious abuse on Twitter over Avengers: Age of Ultron and, even though he denies it, it looks like it may have forced him off the social site.

JJ Abrams has made some fans’ week by saying that he was tempted to have a certain character from the prequels turn up dead in Star Wars: The Force Awakens…. plus Star Wars comes to Disney Infinity and it looks wonderful.

Plus… a new Indiana Jones movie has been confirmed by Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy.

PLUS we’ll be telling you how to win an awesome Jurassic World LEGO set!

We’ll also have Stuart from the Monday Movie Show on with the latest movie news, videogame 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 has so many lightsabers that the local children can’t come into his house without signing a waiver agreeing to being called younglings. He once said that his favourite Star Wars character was Jar Jar Binks to Chuck Norris who told him that even HE wasn’t brave enough to admit that…

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….
