The Following the Nerd Podcast Ep 136: “Goodnight, Seattle!”

September 6th, 2015 by Marc Comments


It’s hard to believe, but we have reached the final episode of the Following the Nerd Podcast.

The live show has been running for around four years, with the podcast being a thing for roughly three.

However, the radio station that hosted our show, Shine FM in Banbridge, N Ireland has sadly closed its doors for the last time.

Will we return? Well, yes, we’re confident we will in the future, but for now… in some form or other.

In the final episode we reach back to the past and bring back some of the good people that made the show such a success over the years. As well as regular co-host Saxon, we bring back Mark McCann, Big Phil and Jay Faulkner. And we have the one and only Stuart in the house too.

We talk about the things that have happened in the years since the show began and bid an emotional farewell to our listeners.

Until we take the first step into our next venture, we want you all to know we love you all and come out of our Nerdy HQ every week for the love of the game but mostly for you guys.

So, one last time, in the words of the late, great Mr Dave Allen, until next time, may your god go with you, I have been Marc and this has been the Following the Nerd Podcast.


You can also watch our special video version of the final show below. Want to know who we are and what we do every week Well, wonder no more…

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….
