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!
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. Plus, 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….
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!
Dan & Kenton completely forget (while recording) that this is the one hundredth episode of this podcast! Holy shit! They do remember to talk about the Deadpool trailer, the failure of Fantastic Four, and (of course) Jon Stewart’s final episode of the Daily Show.
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.
Dan pitches his idea for the “CJOB Podcast Network” while Kenton pitches what would be the first “R-rated” Star Wars film. The Nerds also get into Star Wars toy collections, OITNB, and mourn the loss of Sir Christopher Lee.
May the Fourth be with you!In this special episode, the Nerds speak with Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda of Blame Society Films. Matt & Aaron are the creative geniuses behind Chad Vader, Beer and Board Games, Game Society Pimps and Welcome to the Basement, among many other things.

No, that’s not a double-entendre. That’s the episode title suggested by Dan’s son Jack (the meaning will become clear a few minutes in.)
That’s right, it’s “bring your kid to the podcast” day! Jack joins the nerds for a somewhat chaotic discussion of Star Wars, Interstellar, and other sci-fi favourites.
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.
In a special episode of the Media Nerds podcast, Dan & Kenton set aside a small portion of their day to TOTALLY FREAK OUT over the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that dropped Thursday afternoon.
If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, what the hell’s wrong with you? Watch it, RIGHT NOW!
