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!
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 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.
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!
Dan & Kenton run the gamut of Nerd News after a busy week and a ton of great response to Monday’s “death of print journalism” discussion. In the recommendations, Kenton’s a local sports fan and Dan recommends that people NOT watch something.

Dan & Kenton engage in a spoiler-filled discussion about The Walking Dead mid-season finale, and about the series in general. In Nerd News they talk about the newly-announced Bond film, Spectre. And yes, Star Wars does work its way back into the podcast once again. I have a feeling that’ll happen quite a bit over the next year…
