Nerds United Episode 174: TV Shows Past and Present

This week on the show, Mike and Greg discuss workouts while staying at home. They include comic books. Also, Greg’s back is more messed up than was initially indicated.

This week we’re talking about some forgotten cartoons of our youth. Everyone talks about Batman TAS, X-Men, Gargoyles, He-Man, TMNT. But what about the unsung heroes of your childhood? Popeye, Denver the Last Dinosaur, and more.

We also talk about some recent sitcoms, one that Mike has been talking about to Greg for awhile. And [SPOILER ALERT] I’m watching it right now!

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 13: Quarantine or Grounding

What do you do when you can’t go outside? If you’re Greg and Chad, you Skype each other and talk about the similarities between the government telling you you can’t go outside to when you were a teenager and your parents would tell you you couldn’t go out with friends.

They also discuss what they’ve done since being ordered to stay in and Chad gives bad parenting advice.

Nerds United Episode 173: Bloodshot, Batman V Superman and More in Week 2 of Distancing

This week on a new Nerds United, Mike and Greg (still separated by miles, but together in spirit) discuss watching Bloodshot, a movie that opened in theaters two weekends ago, from the comfort of their respective couches. And seriously, watch Bloodshot.

Also on the agenda: Batman V Superman – Dawn of Justice. Someone hadn’t seen it before, and after watching portions of the movie over three days, said person still hasn’t “seen” it. Alas…what’s a husband to do?

Keeping on with the B’s…Bee-Man, a 1966 character from Harvey Comics. Also:

  • Locke and Key
  • Witcher
  • Marvel Shows on Disney+
  • Middlewest from Image Comics

Speaking of comics – support your local comic book store. They need you now more than ever! Find your store on social media. Find out if they are shipping books to your home (assuming they’re closed like ours). Make sure when doors reopen that you show them just as much love as movie theaters, concert venues, dine-in restaurants, and sporting events. They live to provide you with great books. Find them. I beg you.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour: When Jeff Tried to Save the World

This week on The Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad are discussing a movie that neither of them had heard of until Greg found it on Hulu:

This 2017 (2018?) movie stars Napoleon Dynamite as a bowling alley manager who learns the owner is about to sell the lanes. Jeff (Jon Heder) puts a plan in place to keep Winky’s World (“The World”) open!

Nerds United Episode 172: Mike’s ‘On Location’

Well the only thing not shut down beside’s Greg’s “essential” job is this podcast (and the other great podcasts on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network).

But there is a change. Mike is calling in on this episode, not in Studio B. And it’s really weird.

This episode features talk about what is going on in the world right now, ya know, the Big C.

But there’s also talk about Fantomah – The Blazing Skull Mystery Woman of the Jungle Who Was There Before Wonder Woman. Also, rumors about Wonder Woman 84 being sent straight to VOD were debunked (Greg missed the memo), Rosario Dawson IS Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian, 2,000 American’s favorite superheroes and super villains, and Bloodshot will be available digitally this week. So buy it. You’ll thank me.

And we thank you for tuning in and being awesome. Because where would we be without you? I’ll tell you where…sitting right here bringing you a new episode, just with one fewer listener. And we can’t have that. So tell your friends. And wash your hands.

Nerds United Episode 171: SURPRISE! She-Hulk, Three Hulks, and More

This was the episode that was not meant to be. Presently, the Co-Host of the Year is out of town. But before he left, we got together for an hour and knocked out a podcast. It was early in the week, amid all of the continued madness that is Covid-19.

On this special surprise episode, we talk about Allison Brie (or someone like Allison Brie) that Marvel is looking for to play She-Hulk. That goes into a long discussion about the Hulks we’ve had thus far on the big screen.

Avengers Campus is set to open this summer, assuming we’re allowed to leave our homes ever again.

There’s more, but I’m trying to watch Blade Runner and this is taking away from that. I’m no good at multi-tasking.

Superman Named America’s Favorite Superhero

I know. I’m shocked!

If I had to guess, I’d say this OnePoll survey (commissioned by Visit Anaheim ahead of this summer’s opening of Avengers Campus at Walt Disneyland) which questioned 2,000 Americans probably didn’t talk to “hard core” nerds/geeks, but rather more mainstream.

That’s my perception, because any time the topic gets brought up, Supes is rarely the favorite hero in his own brand, being unseated by Batman. Batman finished third in the voting, with everyone’s favorite wall-crawler wedged between the World’s Finest. Captain America and Iron Man are 4 and 5 respectively, with Wonder Woman the sixth favorite among those polled.

Here’s the entire Top Ten:

  1. Superman
  2. Spider-Man
  3. Batman
  4. Captain America
  5. Iron Man
  6. Wonder Woman
  7. Aquaman
  8. Captain Marvel
  9. Black Panther
  10. Wolverine

That’s a lot of Hollywood dollars. And no offense to Aquaman, but would ANYONE have had him in their top ten? I think he gets a boost due to his recent big box office debut. And if I’m being honest, I say the same for Captain Marvel and Black Panther. Now that is not a knock on any of these characters, but rather an indication that their profiles were elevated due to having successful (and in Black Panther and Captain Marvel’s cases, MASSIVELY SUCCESSFUL) solo films.

While the Man of Steel got the nod as America’s favorite superhero, I think it surprises exactly no one that the Clowned Prince of Crime heads the list of favorite super villains.

As beloved as Tom Hiddleston is, with a Loki show on the way on Disney+, consider me surprised that the God of Mischief is in the back half of the Top Ten.

  1. Joker
  2. Catwoman
  3. Venom
  4. Thanos
  5. Lex Luthor
  6. Magneto
  7. Penguin
  8. Harley Quinn
  9. Mystique
  10. Loki

Also, with the pomp and circumstance around Harley Quinn, I would have thought that character would be in the top five. I still think, even at number 5, Lex Luthor is underrated. He and Thanos have a lot in common, in that they say the best villains are those who see themselves as the hero, that they are doing the right thing. That was everything about Thanos in the MCU.

Also, side-bar…I think Venom and Harley Quinn could both, at times, fall into the “anti-hero” category.

Let’s see what else the poll said.

THE SUPERPOWERS AMERICANS WANT MOST
1. Invisibility                           37%
2. Healing                              35%
3. Time travel                        35%
4. Superhuman strength       33%

5. Superhuman intelligence  33%

That’s 173%, just incredible. Also, and even in the world of the coronavirus where healing would come in handy, I still want the ability to teleport. Are you kidding me? No more commutes? No more trying to find a parking spot for a ballgame? No more traveling (driving or flying) to the vacation destination…just BAM! (or “BAMF!”) and you’re there. Don’t mind that subtle smell of brimstone.

Respondents said that Superman would beat Batman in a fight. The Avengers are their favorite superhero team, and Marvel was preferred over DC by a 2-1 margin.

What’s your take on the findings of this survey? Do you agree? Disagree? Let us know via social media. Because when there’s a damn pandemic going on, talking about superhero nonsense is good for us all.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 10: Josh and S.A.M.

This week on the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad discuss another winning movie selection by the Co-Host on the West Coast, Chad.

Josh and S.A.M. tells the story of two brothers on a road trip, and while the trailer above tells you that much, they don’t really tell you WHY these brothers are pulling a Logan and booking it for Canada.

Nerds United Episode 170: Disney Remakes and the Robat Batinbatmobile

This week on the show, Greg and Mike are talking about Disney’s live-action remakes, which ones are coming up and if we’re excited for them.

Get a lesson of the bad ideas from pro wrestling gimmicks, hear about the original Jigsaw, and the Batmobile in all of its gearhead glory!

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 9: Comic Books

This week on the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad discuss discovering comic books, and how we went about collecting them. And at some point, Greg starts talking for about 15 minutes non-stop, which would be great, except it’s only a 30-minute podcast. But Chad knew what he was getting into when he agreed to co-host a half hour show.

Nerds United Episode 169: Hairy Cavill as Wolverine?

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg explore the rumors of Henry Cavill being cast as Wolverine in Captain Marvel 2, which leads into discussion about The Witcher, Locke and Key, and Man of Steel.

Also, Dynamite Thor (that’s a real thing), and being Belleville’s Number One Podcast.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 8: Rock Dog

This week on Not My Demographic, we watched and discuss the 2016-17 animated feature…Rock Dog!

That’s pretty much it. Oh wait, there’s a guest appearance at the end of the movie, and while it’s not part of Rock Dog, the guys discuss Kay and Silent Bob Reboot!

Enjoy.

Nerds United Episode 168: Reboot Reviews, Rivers, and “Robat Batinbat”

In the past week, both Greg and Mike have had the opportunity to watch Jay and Silent Bob Reboot! And in this episode, you can hear long form what the guys thought about Kevin Smith’s latest work.

(You can watch Greg’s short version right here)

We also talk about Nemesis, Playstation 5 being outrageously priced, and Mike names all of the world’s rivers. So we have that!

Oh, let’s not forget the latest images of Robert Pattinson as The Batman.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 7: When We Learned Pro Wrestling was a Work

Oops. I should’ve said “SPOILER ALERT!”

But here’s the thing…you know by now that pro wrestling is a pre-determined athletic competition which takes skill to master.

All we’re doing in this episode is going through our memories and discussing when we learned and/or realized that maybe what happens in a 20×20 (or 16×16, for you WCW fans) ring wasn’t always completely on the up and up. Ah to be young again!

Nerds United Episode 167: Skeletar?

You’re going to have to listen to the podcast to understand it.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 6: Dear John

Dear John Letter:

NOUN
informal
  1. a letter from a woman to a man, especially a serviceman, terminating a personal relationship.

Before ghosting was a common way to end a relationship, people actually wrote letters to dump someone. Author Nicholas Sparks used that premise to craft a romantic story that Lasse Hallstrom turned into a movie starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried in 2010.

On this edition of the “Not My Demographic” series, Greg and Chad watch “Dear John” and eventually get around to talking about the movie.  Does the movie hold up after ten years? How does it compare to “The Notebook?” How does Soul Asylum and Deadwood,  South Dakota fit into the discussion?  Take 30 minutes out of your day to listen and find out.

Nerds United Episode 166: Y Not The Last Man and Desert Island Movies

Heeeeey we’re back. After taking a couple weeks off to get healthy (damn germs), we are off and running!

If you had one fictional character’s movie to take with you on a deserted island, who would you choose? That’s part of this week’s discussion, as well as 90s cartoons, Y: The Last Man losing its’ lead actor, Mother Hubbard, and Rick Moranis.

Strap yourselves in for a comedy ride you won’t ever forget! It’s Nerds United with Greg and Mike.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 5: After School Cartoons

This week on the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad go back to after school and look at cartoons that they watched in their respective generations, Chad in the 1980s and Greg from the late 80s and on.

If it was a popular cartoon in the last two decades, there’s a good chance we mention it. We love cartoons.

Be sure to subscribe if you don’t already. We are growing and it’s because of you!

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 4: Kensho at the Bedfellow

It’s Thursday and that means 30 minutes with Greg and Chad. This week, the guys talk about a 2017 indie movie titled Kensho at the Bedfellow.

I’m not going to lie – it’s a weird movie. And at times it makes no sense. And it’s not at all a geisha kink like the title would indicate.

But while this movie didn’t blow our hair back, it wasn’t too bad. And if you have the Tubi (or not to be?) app, you can watch it for free. And that’s how you should enjoy Kensho at the Bedfellow, without giving up any of your hard-earned dollars.

Nerds United Episode 165: Lady Satan, Obi-Wan, and a Broken Truck

Well it’s time for a brand new episode of your favorite podcast (at least, if we are, leave a rating and review on your favorite podcast app).

Mike and Greg talk about Lady Satan, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, Captain Marvel, and Mortal Kombat (whoa, I almost spelled that with a “C,” like some sort of noob).

We also have some great discussions based on your questions. And if you’d like to ask a question, just hit us up on Facebook, Twitter, or nerdsunitedpodcast@gmail.com

Enjoy. Be kind. Rewind.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 3: The 1992 Dream Team

Sports Illustrated dubbed them the Dream Team almost a year before they ever stepped on the court in Barcelona for the 1992 Olympic Summer Games.

Then the best players at the highest level of basketball went on to trounce their competition by an average of 44 points per game en route to the gold medals.

In this episode, Greg and Chad recall that epic summer of U-S-A (U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!) domination on the basketball court.

Nerds United Episode 164: Travis Yates and Nostalgia

In this special mid-week episode of Nerds United, we bring back Travis Yates. We hear a bit more about Travis’ bona fides in the realm of media and journalism and get a brief update on what’s going on over on Popology 101 on the Positive Cynicism Podcast Network (the #PCPN, if you will).

This discussion largely centers on nostalgia and the continued reboots/remakes of beloved IP’s of our youth. Greg calls it “nostalgia mining,” ie – the best parts of our youth sold off to the highest bidder. Travis thinks that it’s actually not the worst thing in the world, and how a little blast from the past can be a good thing.

Of course, there’s a brief review of the “Nostalgia” drug in the Watchmen series, hence why we get this classic artwork. Nostalgia and the theft of our youth. Are you for it or against it?

Nerds United Episode 163: Trailers and Other Stuff

Welcome to the first episode of a new year. And no, it won’t be a 14-hour episode. We’ve decided that IF we do a marathon recording, it will only be thirteen hours and five minutes…give or take.

But who has that type of time?

Oh yeah, our friends at ABCD-Bagz.

Anyway, since it’s been a few weeks since our last episode, we’re getting caught up on some geeky trailers that have dropped since the ball in Times Square. Bloodshot, Morbius, Harley Quinn, Black Widow, and more news and notes.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 2: She-Devil

This week on Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour, the guys roll out the debut of the Not My Demographic series, with a discussion about the 1989 cinematic experience known as She-Devil.

Listen to the guys break down the film that they normally wouldn’t watch, and honestly that they didn’t even hear about.

And find out why this particular movie was selected as the first Not My Demographic. There’s a pretty solid reason behind it.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 1: NYE 1999 and Y2K

Welcome to Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour. In our debut episode, recorded twenty years and five days after the events of December 31, 1999. What were Greg and Chad doing on that fateful night when planes were supposed to fall from the sky and computer networks were going to shut down, leaving us in a veritable dark age?

You’d be surprised to learn, as we were, that your two hosts were only about fifteen minutes apart, but they wouldn’t meet for almost fifteen years.

New Years Eve 1999. It’s the topic of the very first Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour. 30 minutes. No more. No less.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Trailer

Coming soon to the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network and earbuds worldwide:

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour.

Greg Mehochko and Chad Smart hope to entertain you by discussing big moments (from 1982 on) from their different generational perspective. The duo will also take a look at and talk about movies, music, and other aspects of pop culture that they wouldn’t normally endure, all in a 30-minute presentation.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 157: Volleyball Is Pretty Amazing

The other guys took the episode off… and LEFT ME IN CHARGE!

It’s a bad idea. I’m horrible at the intro. I’m horrible at the outro. Hopefully I got the audio right. [Editor’s Note – Jon did a great job. And “Five Heart is all the Heart you need.” – GM]

I am joined by Jill and Beth and we talk a lot about volleyball.

These are just few of the wonderful things we discussed:

  • The Big Ten will be really tough again next year
  • John Cook – how old he is and how long he’ll coach
  • Who might replace John Cook as the next head volleyball coach at Nebraska
  • And a couple of guesses on who might be the new assistant coach to replace
  • Kayla Banworth becoming yet another Cook assistant to get a Division I head coach position

Also…. Beth tells us a lot of technical details about how hard players can hit a volleyball. I make comparisons to college pitchers and how they might have three good pitches. A hitter in volleyball can have over 20 different ways she can hit the ball. Maybe 40!

Nerds United Episode 161: Hemingway, Stache Publishing, and Christmas

This week on a very special Nerds United, Greg is joined by longtime friend of the show Anthony Mathenia. The two talk about the life and death of Stache Publishing and how projects that began before its untimely ending will see fruition.

One of those projects that is near and dear to Anthony’s heart is a graphic novel based on the life and times of Ernest Hemingway.

https://www.instagram.com/p/By5R90xh-uO/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet

Among other topics discussed is a brief Star Wars cartoon that Anthony worked on with Miljenko (an excerpt from the Hemingway graphic novel is visible above). And we talk about Christmas and share a few stories, since Anthony hasn’t been celebrating Christmas too terribly long.

Merry Christmas and/or the holiday of your choosing, everyone!

Nerds United Episode 160: Texas Tornado of Awesome

This week, Mike and Greg are joined for a little while by fellow podcasters Kevin Hunsperger and Chad Smart. The guys talk about podcasting and their respective shows, as well as BREAKING NEWS for the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network.

After Chad and Kevin are dismissed, the Nerds United duo discusses Watchmen and Joker.

Also, despite what you may have seen from other online reviews, Kevin and Chad both appeared to enjoy Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker.

 

Five Heart Podcast Episode 156: Early Signing Day

This past week was the Early Period for football players to sign their National Letters of Intent.

And the Nebraska Cornhuskers KICKED.SOME.ASS!

Rick Cone, Corn Nation’s Recruiting Guru, joins the Five Heart Podcast to talk about all of the hits that Nebraska received. There were some surprises. There was some drama. But roster needs were addressed.

Who’s N?

Nerds United Episode 159: Movie Trailers and Recipes

This is our first true NU episode since Turkey Before Turkey. And we missed a lot in the week we spent with family.

Trailers for Black Widow, Wonder Woman, Ghostbusters: Afterlife. We talk some recipes for Mike to prepare for another UFC Fight Night.

Also, Watchmen and The Mandalorian.

And I finally picked up Dark Horse Comics’ The Butcher of Paris, written by Stephanie Phillips. Check out my chat with her in the archives.

I think that’s it. It’s late. I probably forgot something.

Oh yeah – who could forget Doctor Hormone?

Five Heart Podcast Episode 155: Pantsless Paul

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, Greg and Jon are joined by Paul Dalen to discuss the news and notes of Husker athletics. The guys talk about the arrests of two indefinitely suspended Huskers. Also on the docket, Nebraska Football – did the stats lie to us?

Among the other topics of conversation, Greg is young but not too young to remember Superman III (the Richard Pryor one). And Paul thinks Marvel is better than DC, er go Paul is wrong. (Agree or disagree? Paul wants to know in the comments.)

And there’s a cameo appearance by one of the Internet’s first celebrities.

Nerds United Episode 158: Talking Letterkenny

This week on the show, I invite my friend Patrick Gerhart on to talk about one of our favorite shows, and probably the best thing to come out of Canada since hockey…Letterkenny.

Patrick and I have been talking about getting this conversation recorded for a few months, and with Season 8 of Letterkenny set to arrive on Christmas (in Canada, on December 27 for us in the States), it was a fitting time to get together.

We share some of our favorite scenes and characters, as well as a little backstory on the show. It would be a great honor to have a cast member or writer on the show sometime, so if you’re reading this and have anything to do with Letterkenny, please send an email to nerdsunitedpodcast@gmail.com.

That’s it. Thanks Patrick. Pitter patter, let’s get atter.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 154: Volleyball is a 5-Seed, and Football Too

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, Greg, Jon, and Hoss talk about the fifth-straight loss to that team from the east. Five straight. In a game we should have won.

But the second half of the show is spent talking about a good Nebraska athletic program, the #5-overall seed in the NCAA Volleyball Tournament which starts today. Beth Merrigan returns to talk volleyball.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 153: FAMILY FRIENDLY! IOWA – I’m Okay With Average

Hey everybody. Welcome to a very special Five Heart Podcast. It’s the episode where we don’t swear, and if we do, I very carefully cover it up with censorship.

We understand that you may be traveling with your family to a Thanksgiving gathering. (Also, Happy Thanksgiving!) So wanted to keep this as clean as we could so you could enjoy it before tomorrow’s game.

So we beat Maryland, soundly. A great time was had by all.

And now it’s on to Iowa, and Jon believes (rightly so) that Iowa has settled for a lifetime of mediocrity. And as long as there’s a Ferentz in Iowa City, Greg agrees.

Nerds United Episode 157: Turkey Before Turkey 2

This week is the Second Annual Nerds United Turkey Before Turkey episode. And that means our fearless hosts will take a shot of Wild Turkey ahead of tomorrow’s turkey (and food) coma of Thanksgiving.

On this show, we discuss music we were listening to in high school (we might be the only podcast this Thanksgiving weekend to mention Limp Bizkit). We talk about the Speed Centaur and the Invisible Woman, building a cinema universe on a strong foundation instead of sand, and gingers in Star Wars.

And be looking for a very special Cyber Monday sale, where you can get FREE SHIPPING AND 15% off EVERYTHING at our shop. And enjoy the show.

Nerds United Episode 156: The Draft with Kevin Hunsperger

Welcome to a new episode of Nerds United. This week on the show, we are joined by Kevin Husperger, host and sole proprietor of My 1-2-3 Cents the Podcast and My123Cents.com.

We took your comic book character suggestions and put together a draft, picking seven names each who would do battle in a make-believe arena.

We couldn’t have done it without you. So we thank you.

And also, Greg’s team would win. But you can help decide by voting on the post on Facebook.

Mike and Greg also talk about a few news items before Kevin comes on board. It’s another solid episode, and it’s not 14 hours. So we have that going for us.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 152: Making Sense of Nonsense

By that I mean – sure the outcome wasn’t desired, but the effort was there. Dare I say, the HEART was there.

This week on the show, Greg and Jon rehash their postgame thoughts from the weekend, while Hoss takes the opportunity to share his thoughts for the first time. What did Hoss see that he hasn’t seen in Husker football in almost twenty years?

SILVER LINING, YOU TURDS!

Here’s what we know: We make our first trip EVER to College Park to face the Maryland Terrapins this weekend.

And thinking about the Iowa game really gets Hoss’ piss hot.

Nerds United Episode 155: Disney+ Gets Our Money and Probably Yours

This week on the podcast, Greg and Mike talk about snow days in our youth, local beer, Disney+, The Mandalorian, unexpected finds on the new streaming service, and much more.

And Mike really lets Greg have it for watching Episode 1 of The Mandalorian without telling Mike first. Because Greg’s a dick.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 151: Talking with the Enemy

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, Greg, Hoss, and Jon get you ready for Saturday’s match-up with Wisconsin. And to do that, we spend a little time talking with Tyler Hunt, Podcast Manager at Bucky’s 5th Quarter.

We talk with Tyler about Wisconsin’s expectations heading into the year and how the losses to Illinois and Ohio State may have derailed post-season plans. We talk about the elephant in the backfield known as Jonathon Taylor, and what weaknesses, if any, the Badgers possess.

After we let Tyler depart, we talk about why Wisconsinians (Wisconsegians – if we follow the Io_a way of naming things) are so happy. We discuss the youth on the Husker team and why we likely won’t see any more freshmen on the field in their redshirt year.

And we do spend a few minutes talking about Nebraska’s second-favorite son, Garrett Nelson, as well as Damion Jackson being awarded Blackshirts.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 150: An Episode of Biblical Proportions

Well, this is our 150th episode. And in it, we do our best to talk about anything BUT Husker football. Let’s face it – it’s a coffin on roller skates at the moment. It will turn around. I don’t know when. No one does.

In this episode, we talk about making a change at starting QB, bible references, wasted defensive efforts, mind-boggling play-call, Nebrasketball, the Joker, and, uh…bedroom performance enhancers.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 149: We Mustn’t Fight Amongst Ourselves

There was a good amount of discord in this episode of the Five Heart Podcast. Jon and Hoss yell at each other. Greg steps out of the line of fire, but tries to keep the show on track as we discuss the loss to Indiana. Who stepped up and who shoulders the bulk of the responsibility for Loss Number Four?

We also get into the hot topic around the NCAA these days, that of Name, Image, and Likeness, and a student-athlete’s ability to generate income from theirs.

This week, it’s Nebraska at Purdue. Whose dynamic playmakers will have the better day? We’ll find out Saturday.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 254: Now Hit My Music

Theme music in wrestling is something most fans take for granted. For as long as I can remember MOST wrestlers came to the ring to some kind of song. But it wasn’t always that way.

This week my guest co-host Chad Smart and I break down some of our favorite themes and why music is so important in branding a performer.

Oh, and at one point, Mike turns off his microphone and we don’t realize it but it’s okay because he’s talking about Brock Lesnar and Brock Lesnar is a turd. 

Five Heart Podcast Episode 142: #$%&!

We’re doing the unthinkable – revisiting the loss to those damn Buffaloes. That’s about it. Hoss was there. He had some nice things to say about most of the CU fans he encountered.

Nerds United Episode 146: A Big Beefy Wookie

This week on Nerds United, we look at Star Wars A New Hope and cast it through the lens of 2019. Star Wars never existed, and we are casting it with the actors and actresses of today.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 140: Gray Lumpy Beach Balls

This week on the Five Heart Podcast…Hoss is out. Jon Damn Johnston is out. It’s just Greg and special guest/co-host Paul Dalen. And the first topic of conversation?

Armadillos.

But then we put a bow on the series of game previews, discussing Maryland and Iowa. Let’s be honest, we don’t give a crap about the Maryland game, but we all have November 29 circled on our calendars. Leftover turkey, fighting over cheap electronics, and serving up a 50-burger for the Squawkeyes.

During the course of the show, we also talk about two Huskers suspended indefinitely, Mo Washington’s uncertain status, two new running back recruits, and one match-up with the underwhelming Jaguars.

And check out the great deal on Paul’s book, available on your Kindle device:

Jason White, writer and artist of Lost Owl Kingdom, returns to Nerds United as inspiration for this mid-week episode. First we catch up on some of Jason’s news and happenings of this summer.

Then we get down to the matter at hand…which villain do you agree with? Maybe it’s the logic they share in one of their monologues.

via GIPHY

Sit back and relax as Greg, Mike, and Jason chat villains, and don’t forget that we’ll have your regular show for you at the end of the week! Because we care!

Nerds United Episode 144: Spider-Man Tug of War and D23

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss at length the split between Marvel and Sony over our favorite web-slinger. That was news that rocked the nerd world.

Plus, Masters of the Universe is coming back, thanks to Hero of the Show Kevin Smith (and Netflix). And there’s a lot more content heading to Disney+ that we learned about at D23. So it’s not all sorrow and sadness.

Enjoy the episode and share it with anyone you know. Because you love us, and we love you…probably. I mean, Greg is married but Mike may love you.

….long time.

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, we deep-dive into a single image that made its way onto the internet this week.

We talk about Ohio State trying to trademark a word we use hundreds of times a day. Disney/ESPN doesn’t care about you.

Plus we preview the three games in October and Jon takes us back in time to Memorial Stadium 1978.

And Jon (83) calls Hoss (28) a “crusty old man.”

Five Heart Podcast Episode 136: Beth Merrigan and Husker Volleyball

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, Greg rocks a solo show as the other two Legs of the Tripod are unavailable.

Say hello to Beth Merrigan, Corn Nation’s Volleyball Writer. In her Five Heart debut, Beth informs us that she’s a Nebraska transplant (but not going anywhere) who has loved volleyball all her life, and just wants to talk volleyball all the time.

And we’re very cool with that.

Beth is a mom of four, wife of one, proud Panhandle resident, Army Reservist, and grammar enthusiast (okay, I made that last part up, but we can hope).

What does Beth think of the Husker volleyball team in 2019? Find out when you listen to the newest episode of the Five Heart Podcast.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 135: O-Line Depth and Northern Illinois

This week on the show, Greg Hoss, and Jon talk about the silver lining that was the loss two years ago to the Northern Illinois Huskies. Why? Because we’re previewing this season’s Week Three match-up with the MAC Team.

But there’s also a lot of talk about the offensive line and position changes that helped bring about such depth. The defensive line gets some love too. And there’s another citation involving a Husker and the sweet cheeba.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 134: Minnesota is Flecking Insane

This week on the show, the guys have some fun with reports and quotes following Day One of Big Ten Media Days in Chi-Town.

We took particular joy this week in making fun of Minnesota and their Head Coach PJ Fleck. Fleck, if you just tuned in, had this to say at the podium on Thursday.

(Shout out to Friend of the Show Erin Sorensen. We’re pretty sure she doesn’t know we exist.)

So after that gem, the show fired back:

So after verbally abusing Minnesota (and Jon for reasons found within), we turn our attention to our Week 2 opponent, Colorado, with a lot less analysis than Husker Mike and pretty much just raw emotion.

And there’s a pretty special cameo at the end.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 132: It’s July. We’re All Bored.

via GIPHY

Fact is, there’s still some stuff to discuss, even if it only tangentially connects to Nebraska. For example? DID MEL TUCKER LOSE HIS DAMN MIND? We discuss the insanity that was Mel Tucker (this is real news, not that fake Laviska Shenault stuff from a couple weeks ago. We opened up July with “Well, what has Nebraska done?”

And that’s how we opened the show. Then we started writing a parody song on the spot.

Then in a healthy bit of team-building, Jon asked how Greg’s son is doing with the potty training.

Hey everyone – thank you so much for downloading this episode of Nerds United. This week, Greg is joined by comic creator Jason White. Jason’s written and drawn comic book LOST OWN KINGDOM is available now to support on Kickstarter.

I came to know Jason through our mutual friend in the independent comics industry, Mr. Anthony Mathenia of Stache Publishing. So shout-out to Anthony.

In this episode, we will learn about Jason’s entry into comic books and why he writes about the content he does. We talk about his foray into acting and how he relocated to follow his dream.

And as a bonus, we discuss the dangers of technology. So give this one a listen. You won’t be disappointed. And share it with your friends. And support the Kickstarter.

That’s not asking too much, is it?

We also talk about the hiring of Will Bolt as the new Husker baseball head coach, as well as Isaiah Roby possibly being taken in the second round of the NBA draft (we recorded before the draft began). And then there’s that bit about the #FakeNews out of Boulder, CO.

Andy Ketterson is here as well and that allows for some hockey (aka Canadian Soccer) talk. Did we mention the Blues won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history?

Nerds United Episode 136: The Stanley Cup and a Galaxy Far Far Away

Welcome to a brand new episode of Nerds United. This week, Greg and Mike are joined by special guest (and host of Jittery Monkey’s Positive Cynicism) Chad Smart!

Chad has gone coast to coast in the last week, flying from his home in Los Angeles to take in the historic Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Final in Boston. But he also traveled to the Galaxy’s Edge, and talked to your hosts about all that he saw at Disneyland’s newest expansion!

Then Greg and Mike discuss some additions and subtractions to streaming media, ie Jessica Jones and Swamp Thing. They also talk about Captain Marvel and have a poll up this weekend on the Facebook page for you to vote in!

Five Heart Podcast Episode 129: Frost’s Second Year, Wan’Dale, FSU and Hockey

The tripod is back! Greg, Hoss, and Jon Damn Johnston reunite to talk about the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Final, Wan’Dale Robinson and his recent doping scandal, Scott Frost and his second year, and the St. Louis Blues.

Also – Greg’s son doesn’t want to learn to use the toilet, and there’s much consternation about that. And Hoss loves his protein bar.

Nerds United Episode 135: Greg’s Alone on a Friday Night

Mike abandoned the show…to go SWIMMING?!? What the hell? So I did a little Facebook Live for a brief episode. Discussing cinematic Wolverine, podcast Wolverine, and shirtless Mike, which apparently resembles that of Wolverine.

There’s some stuff I forgot to discuss, but I’ll save that for next week when Mike returns.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 128: Darin Erstad, Mo Washington, and a Gent Named Warren

Hoss takes the night off and in his place we have both Jill Heemstra AND Mike Jaixen. The fearsome foursome discusses the resignation of Darin Erstad, Maruce Washington’s latest run-in with the law, the new Big Ten Commissioner, and the extended three-point line in NCAA men’s basketball.

Also, Futurama > The Simpsons.

Nerds United Episode 134: Indiana Jones, Deadpool, and Crossovers

It’s been a couple weeks but the CO-HOST OF THE YEAR is back! Mike makes his triumphant return to the show AND my kitchen table for a great conversation about Indiana Jones, Deadpool, the unlikelihood of a Marvel/DC crossover, King Kong and Godzilla, and The Matrix.

There’s beer. There’s laughs. It’s always a good time, at least for us. And if you enjoy what we’re doing here, throw us a rate and review on your favorite podcast app. That’s free. If you LOVE what we do here, buy some merch at the Jittery Monkey Shop.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 127: Husker Baseball, Football, and Oklahoma

Jon Damn Johnston took the night off, apparently. We don’t know what happened to him. There was radio silence from Minnesota until we were almost done recording. But here’s what we have in store for you:

Husker Baseball comes up short in the Big Ten Championship.
No more Oklahoma Drill in the NFL, and why Hoss doesn’t like that drill in the first place.
Tanner Farmer signs with Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.
Husker Football and whooping that Coloradowa (Colorado/Iowa) ass.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 126: Husker Heavy Lifters and Memorial Stadium Beer

This week’s show features news that we were not aware of regarding Ndamukong Suh’s previous contract. Oh, and the big man is moving back to Florida for another year of football. And he’ll be joining former Husker Lavonte David in Tampa Bay.

There are a couple of Nebraska natives who are putting in the effort in the weight room. Meanwhile, Bill Moos isn’t opposed to the idea of alcohol sales in Memorial Stadium…at least parts of Memorial Stadium.

Nerds United Episode 132: Batman, Rescue Rangers, Theater Etiquette

We’re back! After taking a week off after dropping two award-winning podcasts in one night two weeks ago, we’re here to talk about the recent news of Robert Pattinson being cast as Batman. But that’s not all.

Did you know there’s a Chip n Dale’s Rescue Rangers live action movie being made? And where does Gargoyles rank in Greg’s hierarchy of cartoons?

Popeye makes an appearance, and we talk about movie theater etiquette and what we prefer in our theater experiences.

So that’s the show. Please support us by throwing up a rate and review on the podcast app of your choice. And if you’re feeling really generous, buy a shirt at our SHOP. Buy this weekend and save 15% on everything!

Five Heart Podcast Episode 125: Husker Football Gateway Games, The Wizard of Oz, and a Ruined Mother’s Day

Here’s a quick rundown of the topics on this week’s show. We kick it off with a little acknowledged anger management as Hooch admits that he screwed up Mother’s Day. We talk about The Wizard of Oz, and how Jon is the All-Powerful Oz and how the Wicked Witch was equally stupid. And it must be stated that Hoss’ first gray hair was found…and swiftly dealt with.

Then after the break, memorable Husker moments that you would always see through to the end as well as your “gateway game,” the introduction to Husker football that you would share with someone who has no clue what Husker football is about.

Also, per our agreement with the Powers That Be, I’m legally obligated to share this image with you. You’ll know why when you listen to the show.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 124: Fantasy Booking National Championship QBs

This week, Hoss, JDJ, and Greg are joined by our Corn Nation colleague Keith Yaple to talk about the screwed up finish of the Kentucky Derby, and horse racing in general – which is a subject overall that we are not terribly familiar.

We posed the question to you – you get to take one Husker QB from anywhere in history and select them to lead the Huskers in a National Championship game. You “Use(d) Your Voice” and became a part of the show – and you can do so next week as well, just by calling (402) 327-1830.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 232: Cape Con Connection

The 2019 Cape Comic Con is in the books. This year the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network took the event by storm. We set up a table and meet lots of potential new listeners. We also gave away some swag.

After the con, we headed over to Cape Championship Wrestling. This week on the podcast, Chad and I summarize the experience and talk about indy wrestling, Joey Ryan’s penis and WWE haters.

We talked fandom and how to tie the movies into pro wrestling. You can learn more at the Stride website here.

Be sure to rate the podcast on your favorite listening app as well as the other programs here on the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network.

You can shop the My 1-2-3 Cents store on Pro Wrestling Tees. Also, take a look here at the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Store. Lots of great merch out there for fans of the shows here. We’ll be at Cape Comic Con this coming weekend too. Learn more here.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 122: Football Rule Changes and Attrition

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, your favorite Corn Nation podcast that includes both a number and a vital organ, Greg, Hoss, and Jon talk about an ass-kicking Easter bunny, which is different than an Easter bunny getting its ass kicked.

We also talk about some of the recent rules changes made to our beloved college football, like blind-side blocks and targeting, as well as overtime adjustments. And Greg gives his opinion as to what would make overtime really exciting.

There’s also talk about the latest on the players who are leaving the Husker football team, without the knowledge of Quayshon Alexander.

Nerds United Episode 129: Cape Comic Con, Game of Thrones, Avengers Endgame

This week, there’s no Mike. So it’s automatically 1/2 as awesome as usual. But I’m here with a shorter episode to get you ready for Cape Comic Con this coming weekend.

That’s not all the excitement headed your was the weekend of April 26. We also get Avengers Endgame! And I will be taking it in Friday night with my wife. I’m really excited, as I’m sure most of the world is. But if you know someone on your Facebook friends list who doesn’t get our love of these movie franchises, maybe they post things like “I don’t get what all of the hype is over these comic book movies” or something similar, just un-friend them. As the old saying goes, you don’t need that type of negativity in your life.

Spoiler alert…spoilers are coming.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 121: Spring Game, Husker Baseball, and Dot’s Pretzels

Keith Yaple covers Nebraska Baseball for Corn Nation, and since this is Keith’s debut on the Five Heart Podcast, we get to play a little “Get to Know You.”

The Husker Baseball team was in action while we were recording the episode, so we get some live in-game reaction and analysis from Keith. Keith provides some insight on the Huskers’ season to this point, up to and including the game Wednesday night against the UNO Mavericks.

Also – Keith…kind of a gambler. He won a handsome sum of money betting on women’s college basketball.

At the end of the show, we talk a little bit about the Husker Spring Game. So make sure you stay tuned for that!

Nerds United Episode 128: Disney+, Star Wars, and Shazam!

Holy crap! Greg made it to the movies! So this episode, we talk about Shazam! And Disney+ released its “go-live” date as well as the price points.

We talk about what Disney+ is offering, as well as what that announcement means for Netflix.

The other topics discussed are the updated Lion King movie, Lady and the Tramp, and a little movie franchise called Star Wars.

Thanks to Mike for getting all the celebrity shout-outs handled on social media. Mike’s the best! (not actually written by Mike…for clarification – GM)
