FTN Podcast Ep 12 – Fortune and glory kid, fortune and glory…

March 8th, 2012 by Marc Comments

On this week’s show Paddy & Bash join host Marc to get into the nitty-gritty of nerdy goodness.
First up we have Irish comics writer and guru Jay Faulkner who talks about the comic book… See More scene in Ireland and just why we should expect to be world leaders in the very near future.
We talk about Simon Pegg’s return to the Star Wars fold as Dengar in The Clone Wars, plus the upcoming release of the Indiana Jones saga on Blu-ray.
We get a little sad chatting about the news that, to all intents and purposes, Ghostbusters III looks dead in the water.
The Avengers trailer and poster release gets us all fired up about Marvel Movies, what makes a good movie poster and was Bond the most iconic poster franchise?
And Bash manages to offend all our female comic book fan listeners. Not really, but it’s fun to wind him up.
So tune in and get in touch with us… and remember, you Nerd it here first.

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….
