Get ready for the new daily show

LISTEN: It’s episode 48 & 49 of our Podcast! ‘Always two there are…’ (not really, bit of a one off actually)

January 31st, 2013 by Marc Comments

Apologies for the lateness of this latest episode, we had a few technical problems with uploading… soooooo… this week you have a double dose. Enjoy 🙂


This week Marc & Jay chat with Pete Redmond from Mechatron Robotics, the company that creates robots for TV and live events about the dangers and advantages of having robots in society.

We also deal with the fact that Joss Whedon isn’t involved in future Star Wars movies, the sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine could be coming, is Gremlins set for a reboot?
When Alan calls in to the studio to talk video game news we chat about the whole violence in video games debate and he’s excited about Disney Infinity.
We tell Star Trek fans in Ireland where the best place to meet other fans is and Stuart gives us the UK Top Ten and reviews Django Unchained.
Finally we chat cartoons and gush a little over Ultimate Spider-man and Tron: Uprising.

Remember, you Nerd it here first.


On this show Marc and Jay are joined by the one and only Mr Jimmy Mac, formerly of The Forcecast, about he and Jason Swank’s exciting new Star Wars podcast Rebel Force Radio and we talk a bit about the future of Star Wars.
While we were onair, quite appropriately, the news broke that JJ Abrams was set to direct Star Wars Episode VII… and yes, we talk about it. Alot.

Our second interview of the night is with artist Stephen Downey who chats about his awesome new comic series Noe: The Savage Boy.
We also chat about the end of Fringe – sniff – and the 50th celebration plans for Doctor Who. We also chat about the future of x-men on film.
Alan and Stuart come on to cover the usual gaming news and UK Box Office top ten movies and Stuart reviews Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty.

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….
