#ForceFriday! (Star Wars Nerds Ep. 1)


Dan & Kenton celebrate #ForceFriday by talking about all the awesome Star Wars toys they bought for themselves (yes, two grown men bought toys, that’s how we roll). They also discuss this new podcast and what they hope to achieve with it!


#CreCommAdvice (Back To School!)


Kenton like to channel his inner Kinison at this time of year…

Dan & Kenton jump on board the popular hashtag and give their returning students a bit of advice on how they can be successful in the Creative Communications program. ┬áPlus, some minor changes are on the way to this podcast and the Nerds are gearing up to launch an all-new podcast in a galaxy far, far away….

“We Are The Knights Who Say ‘Ren’!”


Kenton explored every pixel of this new shot from The Force Awakens international trailer. Where’s Waldo?

The Nerds are back in studio this week to finally talk about Ant-Man, a possible Media Nerds music club, more layoffs at Corus Radio, and all the nerd-gasmic Star Wars news that came out this week. Only four months to go!

Kenton says Orphan Black is “Degrassi with clones.” Dan just likes sausages.

Dan and Kenton travel to Barley Brothers to sample some awesome stouts, have a sausage party, and pregame for the One Direction concert (just kidding!) They also discuss Emmy noms, OITNB, Ernest Cline’s new novel and why Philadelphians don’t know what Star Wars is.

You know things are rough for the CBC when “real” journalists have to cover sports…

What do those three things have in common? This podcast, of course! Dan & Kenton discuss the validity of sports journalism vs. “real” journalism, including its lack of objectivity at a local level. Then, it all comes back to that glorious Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. The Nerds share the new details they’ve noticed, now that they’ve had 24 hours to absorb the awesomeness.
