Large Nerdron Collider

Large Nerdron Collider

Part news show, part panel discussion and part blue-sky brainstorming, the Large Nerdron Collider is a podcast that embraces the geekiest of geeky tendencies. Whether it’s a deep discussion over which superhero needs their own standalone film (come on, Squirrel Girl!) or a look at how the changing power dynamics within geek culture are shaping entertainment, the Large Nerdron Collider is here to dive in. Plus, each episode will have a stream-of-consciousness mashup where two or more geeky properties are molded into something new (though not necessarily improved). Ever wondered how the Scooby Doo gang would take down The Jigsaw Killer? So do we, and we’re weird enough to figure it out!

We go into overtime this week with our optimism for geek things to come and our fickleness and hangups when it comes to fiction. And then we shoot for a three-pointer when we try to mash-up some sports with cartoons ala Space Jam. Will it be nothing but net, or are we just throwing bricks? You decide!
