Do you ever go to Wikipedia looking for information on one thing but find yourself 20 minutes later having visited 20 other pages? Well, that's what we do on this episode of Nerd Lunch. Pax and CT are joined by Tim Lybarger from TimLybarger.com and Jeff Somogyi of sommerjam.com and the Your Weird Podcast and we play a game of "Down the Rabbit Hole." Can we get from the page for Karate Cop to the page for Tom Sawer (song) within the show? (Pre-apologies to all die-hard Rush fans...) There's only one way to find out...listen now!
CT invites Kay to join him in this celebration of the 11th Doctor's premiere appearance. Together they try fish fingers and custard. CT even made his own custard using this recipe.
Ryan from Grub Grade and The Nosh Show joins the nerds this week as they try to find alternative work for some junk food and fast food mascots. Who should shill for Cheetos if Chester Cheetah was laid off? Who should ascend to the throne of King Vitaman? What other product could an unemployed Hamburglar represent? All these questions and more are answered in this week’s show. Our Nerd To Dos include Fury Road, The Americans, Akira, and Trader Joes Peruvian Inca Corn.
For this extra special Extra Helping Pax is joined by Shawn Robare to discuss the 1990 cartoon sequel, The New Adventures of He-Man which followed up and rebooted the classic mid 80s cartoon. We talk about our first exposure to the property, we discuss a few of the episodes and how the show differs from the earlier incarnation and we even discuss the toys.
