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!

Plus, we talk about the Justin Roiland controversy, how the front half of Epcot may soon be able to ditch those construction barricades, and whether or not the D&D film will make its saving throw against Jonathan's indifference. Plus more!

There's a ton to talk about with the announcement that big changes are coming to DC films and series, and not everyone is going to be happy about it. Is Wonder Woman 3 cancelled? Wil Henry Cavill get to be Superman again? Is Jason Momoa trading his fins for whatever Lobo has? Plus we talk about some other geek news, react to some trailers, and wonder what the heck is going on in that new Teen Wolf movie coming out.
