My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 266: Wrestling with the 80s

Oh, the 80s. What a magical decade. The rise of pro wrestling started then and the world was introduced to WWF Superstars they could hold in their hand. The LJN collection is by far my favorite. So this week, my guest co-host Brian Juvers and I dig deep into the line and share our favorite memories of these figures.

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!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 265: Wrestling Under the Influence

It’s Christmas time and what better way to celebrate the holidays than with an ice-cold beer? That’s exactly what we’re doing on this week’s Wrestling Under the Influence. Former Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Red Daniels and I drink Abita’s Christmas Ale and swap stories about Mick Foley.

The former hardcore Superstar is now known as Saint Mick to many. We talk about Foley’s transition from a wrestling icon to a Christmas icon.

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 264: The Curly Shuffle

This week’s podcast is important to me for a couple of reasons. First, it’s the five year anniversary of My 1-2-3 Cents the podcast. It was on Dec. 9, 2014, that the ‘pilot’ episode dropped. Huge thanks to everyone who listens as well as to Greg Mehochko for inviting me to be a part of the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network.

The second reason I’m excited is that my co-host, Heath Hatton, and I are recapping what is the biggest night in Stride Pro Wrestling history. The AAPW Resurrection show drew a record 600+ crowd and it was all for former wrestler Dan ‘Curly’ Summers. Thank you to everyone who attended and please enjoy the podcast.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now. If you donate $5 or a new wrestling action figure you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed Four Horsemen poster. If you’re not in the area, you can PayPal me kevinhunsperger@gmail.com. You’ll receive one entry for every $5 donated. I will then use that money to buy figures from Five Below.

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 262: Wrestling with the 80s

What a decade the 80s was. Some great pro wrestling memories were formed then, including the first Survivor Series. It went down on Thanksgiving night 1987. This week my guest co-host Scott Cross and I dissect this first annual event that is still going strong today.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now.

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 261: Wrestling Under the Influence

As a fan who grew up watching pro wrestling in the 80s, one of my favorite pay-per-view events of all-time is the Survivor Series. The original concept has long been scrapped but for the first several years of the event, it was hard to beat.

In 1990 a twist was added. I’m not talking about the Ultimate Survivors match at the end of the night. I’m also not referring to the debut of the Undertaker. Instead, something else that night left a huge impression… the Gobbledy Gooker.

So that’s the subject of this month’s Wrestling Under the Influence. I review that awesomely bad moment in time and pair it with Leinenkugel’s Cranberry-Ginger Shandy.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now. If you donate $5 or a new wrestling action figure you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed Four Horsemen poster. If you’re not in the area, you can PayPal me kevinhunsperger@gmail.com.

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 260: The Interview w/Garrett Turner

It’s easy to boo the bad guys (and women) we see in the wrestling ring. But everyone who steps through those ropes has a backstory. That’s what I aim to learn more about with a new feature called The Interview.

My first subject, Garrett Turner. He’s better known as Dexter Roswell in Stride Pro Wrestling. In 2017, Garrett came out and a recent interview by One37PM with NXT signee Jake Atlas prompted me to ask Garrett to talk about his experiences coming out. I hope you enjoy the show.

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 259: 2 is Greater Than 1

The world of professional wrestling has a variety of memorable characters. One of the most memorable I’ve had the chance to work with is Curly. The man behind the gimmick, which is dedicated to the 3 Stooges is Dan Summers. Unfortunately, Dan is having some major medical issues right now.

That’s where his brothers and sisters in wrestling are stepping in. On Saturday, Dec. 7 Stride Pro Wrestling presents AAPW Ressurection. All American Pro Wrestling was at one time a huge force in southern Illinois and Curly was one of the biggest attractions on the roster.

Now, many stars from AAPW are coming together to wrestle for Stride. The show is happening at the Black Diamond Harley Davidson Warehouse and 100% of the money raised that night will be donated to Curly and his family. Get your tickets here.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now.

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.

Of course, we center the conversation around Sting and his 1990 nemesis the Black Scorpion. It’s a great conversation as we stroll down memory lane with some good beer.

My 1-2-3 Cents Ep. 257: Wrestling with the 80s

It’s been 30 years since the first Halloween Havoc. WCW came up with the concept and it ended up being a successful formula for the company. Did you know Halloween Havoc had a better rating than Starrcade 6 of the 12 years they were around? One year it was a tie and five times Starrcade rated higher.

This week though, we’re focused on that first year and the build-up to the Thunderdome match between Ric Flair and Sting vs. Terry Funk and the Great Muta.

This week on a new Nerds United, Greg and Mike discuss the headlines of the week, like casting choices for The Batman, Thor wanting to team up with Captain America and Iron Man once more, and a sequel to the Harry Potter franchise.

And then we are joined by Chad frickin’ Smart, former host of Positive Cynicism on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network, and founder of the Positive Cynicism Podcast Network. We talk about a couple movies Chad has seen recently, namely Jay and Silent Bob Reboot and The Joker. It was a great chat w/ our buddy from El Lay.

Thanks as always for listening to the show. If you don’t mind, share it. Thanks.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 256: Buried Alive

In keeping with the Halloween theme for the month of October, I decided to have a chat with current Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Red Daniels. Nearly two years ago he was involved in the company’s first (and only) Buried Alive match.

To our knowledge, WWE is the only company to do Buried Alive. There have been five such matches, dating back to 1996. If we’re incorrect in that claim, please let me know.

Red talks about the idea behind the match, the execution of it and the aftermath. It’s a great conversation. Be sure to share it with your friends!

Nerds United Episode 152: The Women of Marvel and Other Topics

This week on a brand new episode of your favorite comic book related podcast ever, Greg and Mike talk about places you may or may not have ever heard about, mention Kevin Smith and Triple H, talk about an all-female Marvel movie, how and when Daredevil could be a part of the MCU and which famous villain turned hero is championing the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen’s return, Jennifer Aniston hating on Marvel movies (probably out of jealousy), Brock vs Cain II in Saudi Arabia, Kevin Hunsperger, host of My 1-2-3 Cents the Podcast and 1/2 of the Stride Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions, and run-on sentences.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 146: Game of Chairs

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, Jon and Greg discuss the win over Northwestern, the highs and the lows found therein. The guys also take a few minutes to preview the game against Minnesota this weekend.

But the highlight of the show is the conversation with Luke Peterson from the $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy Coalition (my word, not theirs). With the trophy on the line once again this weekend, the Chair Trophy fund raiser is in full swing, and it’s up to you, Husker Nation, to ensure a fund-raising win for the Big Red. Make your way to their website (www.brokenchairtrophy.com) to pledge your support while making a donation to Team Jack. There’s a fund-raising event at the Mall of America tonight, complete with the Nebraska Pep Band. More information can be found here.

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, we try to talk about the loss to Ohio State, but it still sucks. We get through it as quickly as we can while we ask some important questions:

What loss hurt worse, Ohio State or Colorado?
How many wins would it take to make this fan base happy?

After a year and a half of having rotating co-hosts, the decision to move the shows to the Positive Cynicism Podcast Network has been made in an attempt to better brand the shows.

Thanks to Greg Mehochko for the opportunity and encouragement to start Positive Cynicism. Thanks to Kevin Hunsperger for letting me guest on numerous episodes of My123Cents.  This is by no means a bitter split, it’s just the next evolution in the podcast landscape.

Greg and I are in talks for a new podcast for Jittery Monkey. Stay tuned for future announcements. For future installments of the Positive Cynicism shows, follow @chadsmart on twitter and stay tuned to www.positivecynicism.com

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.

Nerds United Episode 151: Spider-Man, The Batman, and a 67 Impala

This week on a brand new Nerds United – two episodes never alike! – Greg and Mike discuss their lives over the last week. Then they talk about the Walker, Texas Ranger reboot, Jurassic World 3 bringing back some classic names, Brandon Routh as Superman, why Michael Rosenbaum is NOT in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover for DC CW, and a little (BIG) story surrounding everyone’s favorite web-slinger.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 144: Illinois, Gameday and An Ohio State University

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, we do a little breakdown of Nebraska’s 42-38 road win over Illinois. Plus, with College Gameday coming to Lincoln, there’s lots to discuss, like who we would like to see as the celebrity guest picker. And if you weren’t aware, an Ohio State University football team is coming to town for a showdown under the lights. So there’s a lot going on.

Positive Cynicism EP. 111: Wonder Why; Georgia Satellites/Dan Baird

You got a little change in your pocket, going jing-a-ling-a-ling?

Following up last months twofer, @chadsmart and @MikeDeKalb are back for another one-two punch of One Hit Wonders starting with the Georgia Satellites band’s hit of 1987 and ending with their lead singer Dan Baird’s solo hit of 1993.

How did a southern rock band manage to bust onto a Top 40 chart overcrowded with Pop, R&B and Adult Contemporary artists? Why didn’t they have any follow up success?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 253: Wrestling with the 80s

When it comes to great wrestling families, I put the Von Erichs near the top of the list. I grew up in the 80s when Von Erich Mania was running wild. So did my guest co-host this week, Travis Yates (@thetravisyates on Twitter).

We stroll down memory lane and share our thoughts on this iconic family and throw in a few ‘what if’ style scenarios. It’s a great conversation and tribute to one of our all-time favorite families in wrestling.

Nerds United Episode 150: EPISODE 150, Y’ALL!

This week on the show, Greg and Mike wax nostalgia and talk about olden times, bring back a long-lost segment of the show, and talk about some of the various news and notes making the rounds this week.

And if you make it to the end, the guys run down some of the offerings on the Disney+ streaming app.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 143: Huskers Hope to Beat Their Second Foe from Illinois

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, the guys discuss the win over the the Northern Illinois Huskies, talking the positives (that defense) and the negatives (those special teams, WOOF).

Then we talk about this weekend’s game at Illinois, the opener of the Big Ten slate. But coming out of the break, Greg and Hoss serenade Jon with the musical stylings of Kenny Rogers. That right there is worth the download.

Nerds United Episode 149: Writer and Hockey Enthusiast Stephanie Phillips

This very special mid-week episode features writer Stephanie Phillips, author of Aftershock Comics’ Descendent, as well as Kicking Ice from Ominous Press, and Devil Within from Black Mask Studios. Upcoming projects include but are not limited to The Butcher of Paris from Dark Horse Comics, and other unnamed projects we can’t even discuss.

Learn about Stephanie’s life and career outside of comics. And we do a deep dive into Descendent, which I HIGHLY recommend. Ask your local comic book shop about it. And enjoy the show!

Positive Cynicism EP. 110: Debate Me

With another Democratic Debate in the books, @chadsmart and Brandon Cooley are back to discuss their take away from what was said and who didn’t get a say due to controversial qualification standards.

Not only do they discuss the perceived front runners and the most shocking (and disappointing) omissions from the debate stage, they also talk about Ben Gleib’s little known Presidential campaign.  Does the media have a duty to report on all candidates or only ones with name brand familiarity?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 252: Wrestling Under the Influence

Cheers and welcome to another edition of Wrestling Under the Influence. This month it’s a table for one as I drink ‘Me So Honey Blonde’ by Belching Beaver Brewing.

I pair this month’s beer with the ill-fated WWE (WWF) gimmick of Beaver Cleavage. It’s a quick stroll down memory lane. (Spoiler alert: the beer is better than the gimmick.)

Nerds United Episode 148: Classic TMNT and Micro Machines

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike replay the first two episodes of the classic 1989 cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, providing their own unique brand of comedy. 

We also hear about classic Micro Machines, UFC vs WWE, Kevin Hunsperger’s finishing maneuver, and more. Trips down memory lane and old toys for a new generation. 

Thanks for joining us wherever you are. We appreciate you. 

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.

And our final thoughts on Colorado:

And we preview this weekend’s game against NIU. A few other quick-hit topics are on tap as well.

Positive Cynicism EP. 109: The NFL’s Broken Moral Compass

With the 100th NFL season starting @chadsmart and Eric Bennett take time before kick off to discuss the way troubled players are rewarded with big money contracts. Using Antonio Brown’s cross country transition from Oakland to New England as a starting point, they debate what players would have to do for management and fans to say enough is enough.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 251: What If…Vince Retired?

For nearly 40 years Vincent Kennedy McMahon has been the driving force behind the WWE. Before that, of course, it was the World Wrestling Federation. In recent years though, McMahon has been criticized for his decisions related to the product. So this week we explore ‘What If… Vince Retired?’

My co-host for this month’s installment is Stride Pro Wrestling General Manager Sam Hunter. He’s a lifelong fan of pro wrestling and we share our opinions on today’s product and what we think would happen if Vince McMahon walked away from the company today.

Stride Pro Wrestling is in action this Saturday night (Sept. 14) for a fundraiser called Cashing In. It’s a fundraiser for the YouthBuild program. Get more information here.

Nerds United Episode 147: I Stole Chad’s Friend

THAT’S RIGHT! And I’ll do it again! This week on the show, Travis Yates, regular guest on Chad’s Positive Cynicism podcast, stops by via Skype to chat about holding Advanced Degrees in Pop Culture, avoiding a hurricane, the evolution of entertainment, CGI vs practical effects, hating on Terminator, some must-see films, and more.

Be sure to check out Travis’ website, maybe buy a book or two, and thanks for listening to the show.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 141: Time to Beat the Buffaloes

This week on the podcast, Hoss and Hooch break down the season-opening win over South Alabama (the good and the bad) before previewing Nebraska’s (and Hoss’) trip to Boulder.

We have a voicemail and reviewed some Twitter activity!

Positive Cynicism EP. 108: Random Discussions

As Hurricane Dorian had Florida in its sights, @TheTravisYates was busy prepping his house to withstand the storm and trying to keep his family safe. Since he was unavailable to co-host his regular monthly episode of Positive Cynicism, @chadsmart recruited @my123cents host and one half of the newly crowned Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champions, @kevinhunsperger to take Travis’ spot.

Due to the sudden change in co-hosts, there was no topic in place so it was decided to do another random episode where topics were submitted from friends and then drawn from a pile of post-it notes. What are the topics? Where would the conversation go? Would any of it make sense? Listen to the show and find out.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 250: 2 is Greater Than 1: New Champs

Never in my life did I think I’d have an opportunity to wrestle for a championship. That dream came true last week and my partner and I were successful in our effort.

Yes, Heath Hatton and I are the new Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champions. We beat Tony Flood and Jay Spade at Bash at the Ballpark. However, we defend our belts this Saturday, Sept. 7 at Revenge in Carterville. You can learn more here.

In this week’s episode of Two is Greater than One, Heath and I talk about the night we won the titles, why he decided to go in this direction and wrap things up with the new feature Three for the Road. So, who are your three favorite tag teams? Bonus if the Baby Oil Buddies (that’s us) is on your list. 🙂

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.

Who would you cast as some of the main characters in Star Wars if it were being made in 2019 for the first time? Let us know in the comments or on social media.

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:

Nerds United Episode 145: Jason White Returns and Talks Villains

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!

Positive Cynicism EP. 107: Wonder Why; Kajagoogoo and Limahl

For the first time in the history of the Wonder Why series, we’re looking a two One Hit Wonders. Kajagoogoo hit the charts in 1983 with the single “Too Shy.” Two years later, after being fired from the band, Limahl charted with the theme song to the film, “The Neverending Story.”

@chadsmart and @MikeDeKalb break down the career of both the band and the artist to see if they worked better individually or together. For the first time in the history of the Wonder Why series, the reason for only having one hit may have been discovered. Listen and see if you agree with their insight.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 249: Wrestling with the 80s

Oh, the 80s. What a decade! It’s when my fandom got started. It’s also when my guest co-host Jason Skull from the Skullbuster WrestleCast started watching wrestling. This week he joins me for the first installment of Wrestling with the 80s.

We discuss SummerSlam 1988, the first of its kind. Besides the show, we talk about the buildup to it and what was happening with Jim Crockett Promotions at the same time.

Hatton & Hunsperger to challenge Spade & Flood

Stride Pro Wrestling has a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. I’m teaming up with Heath Hatton to get a shot at the tag team titles. Learn more here.

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.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 139: Great Expectations

This week, Hoss, Greg, and Jon Damn Johnston discuss the expectations surrounding a two-time (TWO-TIME) 4-8 team that is ranked #24 in the AP Pre-Season Poll. And we hear from HCSF and DC Erik Chinander on their thoughts on the pre-season ranking.

We also briefly discuss Justin Fields being named the starter at Ohio State and preview two games in November – a road game at Purdue and a home meeting with Wisconsin.

Nerds United Episode 143: Inside Twilight Comics (Swansea, Illinois)

This special mid-week episode of Nerds United has Greg in his favorite comic book store. He’s talking with Brian the owner about the state of the comic book industry, how digital platforms have affected brick and mortar stores, and how publishers and comic book store owners are co-existing.

If you haven’t yet, check out this short video Greg and Brian made while destroying a couple of comic books.

Destroying some comics at Twilight Comics (Swansea, Illinois).

Posted by Nerds United on Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Mike will be back for the week’s recap of news Friday night as usual. There are a lot of headlines that came out this week. We look forward to sharing them all with you.

Positive Cynicism EP. 106: Hunting for Answers

Does an artist or a company have a moral responsibility regarding the content they release to the mass public? Universal Pictures recently cancelled the release of the motion picture “The Hunt” due to mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

On this episode, @chadsmart and @TheTravisYates discuss their opinions on Universal’s decision and if it’s a serious regret or face saving measure. From there the conversation turns to Hollywood’s fascination and society’s acceptance of violence over language or sexuality.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 248: Wrestling Under the Influence

Give me a hell ya, because it’s time for another edition of Wrestling Under the Influence. This month former Stride Pro Wrestling Champion Red Daniels and I try Stone Brewing Company’s Stone IPA and discuss the career of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.

We also talk about life as an indy wrestler and what’s going on in Stride Pro Wrestling. We have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Red gets his rematch for the belt and I’m teaming up with Heath Hatton to get a shot at the tag team titles. Learn more here.

This week on an all-new Nerds United, Greg and Mike are talking about Catwoman’s “controversial” new costume, as well as The Lion King, Avengers: Endgame, destroying comics, and The Boys (now on Amazon Prime).

Give it a listen and share it with the nerds in your social circle.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 138: A Corncob Peeing on a Hawkeye

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.”

Positive Cynicism EP. 105: Too Much Information

The age of the internet has provided easy access to more information than is probably necessary. This is true when it comes to pop culture. @chadsmart and Eric Bennett discuss growing up prior to the internet when you’d find out about a movie by seeing a trailer in the theater a few months before the movie premiered. They compare it to now where a movie gets a release date before a script and fans know everything about the movie prior to the release.

Before getting to the main discussion, Eric gives a wrap up and live thoughts on his experience at San Diego Comic Con 2019.

Midway through the conversation, the conversation hits the tangent highway and road trip through thoughts on Disney’s live action remakes.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 247: What If… Jericho Stayed

This is the first installment of What If… and we’re talking about Chris Jericho. Chad Smart (from Positive Cynicism) and I discuss what if Jericho had stayed in WCW instead of jumping ship in Aug. 1999.

Stride Pro Wrestling heads to the Pulaski County Fair on Friday, Aug. 16. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Co-Host of the Year Mike talk about what comics Greg has been reading, having leftover beer, merging the Marvel and X-Men cinematic universes, how it could go right, and where the X-Men went so wrong.

And then there’s Skittles.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 137: Husker Fan Day; Illinois and OSU Previews

This week on Corn Nation’s flagship podcast, Greg, Hoss, and Jon Damn Johnston discuss last week’s Fan Day and ridiculous items to be autographed.

Positive Cynicism EP. 104: Cynical Politics

Another month, another round of trying to make sense of the political landscape. Originally the discussion was to center around the second Democratic debate and President Trump’s tweets regarding Baltimore and Representative Elijah Cummings. Unfortunately, that recording was unusable due to bad audio.

After fixing the issue and re-recording two days later, the conversation focused on the gun debate and the “Us vs. Them” perceived attitude in politics before turning attention to the debates. Sadly, halfway through the discussion, the audio was taken over by static again. The first half was a decent discussion.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 246: 2 is Greater Than 1

Welcome to the debut of 2 is Greater Than 1, a monthly segment on this podcast. I will be joined on the first Monday of each month by Heath Hatton. The title of the show comes from a line he used during a handicap match against Ryback at Extreme Rules 2012. The two of us are now tag team partners in Stride Pro Wrestling as well.

We have a lot to discuss this month, including the passing of legendary wrestler Harley Race, Stride Pro Wrestling and the upcoming shows for that company.

Stride Pro Wrestling heads to Benton on Saturday, Aug. 10 with IWA Productions. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

Nerds United Episode 140: Putting a Bow on SDCC News

This is it! Your intense review of all things San Diego Comic Con. Plus The Boys on Amazon Prime, lots of Marvel news, and a cameo (run-in) from Positive Cynicism host Chad Smart regarding an interaction with an Avenger.

Enjoy the show. Please take a minute or two to leave a rate and review on your favorite podcast app. It may seem like a pain in the ass, but it could help get our show to more listeners. And if we do that, we’ll cut down the length of the show one minute for each new listener (probably).

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.

Positive Cynicism EP. 103: Wonder Why; Len

It’s the last stop on the throwback to 1999 month of Positive Cynicism. Jumping in the time machine, @chadsmart and @MikeDeKalb head to great white north to check out a brother and sister who team up with a hip hop crew. The group known as Len burst onto the scene in the summer/fall of 1999 with the song “Steal My Sunshine.” Before the song was off the charts, Len seemed to vanish into thin air. Where did they go?

Chad and Mike break down the history of Len and try to understand why their career fizzled out so quickly. After the history lesson, Mike gives him impromptu thoughts on the hip hop bands he’d like to see on a package tour.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 245: Aleister Black (and #AskMy123Cents)

I never turn down the chance to do an interview (whether in person or on the phone) with someone involved in pro wrestling. Such is the case with my guest this week, WWE Superstar Aleister Black. He was doing promos for the SummerSlam Heatwave Tour which made a stop in Cape Girardeau, MO. While I had Black on the phone we chatted about his character, his career and life on the road. This week’s episode is also an Ask My 1-2-3 Cents, so thanks for participating.

Stride Pro Wrestling returns to Carterville on Saturday, Aug. 3. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

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.

Positive Cynicism EP. 102: Everything’s Racist

July was supposed to be a month of reflection on 1999. This week, the time machine got jammed from all the political news coming out of Washington. Instead of going back to see what lessons could be learned from 1999 for today’s political scene, @chadsmart and Brandon Cooley simply try to make sense of everything that’s happened in the past month.

First up on the docket are thoughts pertaining to the first Democrat debate. Who shined? Who disappointed? Who will be next to drop out of the race? Why won’t Bernie Sanders pay his staff $15 an hour? Does Joe Biden know he was Vice President for eight years? Will Marianne Williamson pass out crystals before the next debate? So many questions? So many questions.

From there the topic switches to the hottest feud in the country: Donald Trump vs. The Squad in “Everything’s Racist.” Will this be the hit of the summer or fade faster than Men In Black: International?


My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 244: A Youthful Perspective

I started watching wrestling around age 9. It was late 1982 but not until mid-83 that I was all-in. Obviously, a lot has changed since then. I wanted to hear the perspective of a young fan today. So I enlisted Hunter Woodworth, 15, of Mt. Vernon. He’s also a Stride Pro Wrestling Superfan. We discuss WWE, AEW, indy wrestling and more this week.

Speaking of Stride Pro Wrestling, the company returns to Carterville on Saturday, Aug. 3. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

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.

Positive Cynicism EP. 101: 1999 Cinema

Reflecting on 1999 and how it has shaped 2019 continues with a look at the movies of 1999 and how some of the biggest films of that year helped shape the current state of cinema today.

Using Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace as a jumping off point, @chadsmart and Eric Bennett trace the current trends in modern cinema. What can we learn from 20 years ago? Maybe Hollywood executives should listen to this episode.

Forget the ‘Summer of 69’, we’re talking about the Summer of 89, specifically in pro wrestling. From ‘No Holds Barred’ to Dusty Rhodes in the WWF to Ric Flair’s face turn it was quite a summer. Co-host Chad Smart (Positive Cynicism) and I discuss that period and share our thoughts.

Positive Cynicism EP. 100: Wrestling with 1999

We’ve reached 100 episodes!! Since it’s a milestone episode, @chadsmart has invited @my123cents host @kevinhunsperger to fill in on co-host. Together they discuss professional wrestling scene of 1999 and the similarities to the professional landscape in 2019.

Where there once was WWF, WCW and ECW, now there is WWE, AEW with Impact/ROH/MLW fighting for third major company. Will the ghosts of wrestling past come back to haunt wrestling present? Is there enough attention span among wrestling fans for all the product that’s easily consumed? Listen to Chad and Kevin then weigh in with your opinion.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 242: Not the Push I Wanted

In pro wrestling everyone wants a push. Heck, even as a ring announcer I guess I do too. However, Saturday night I got an unexpected and unwanted push from the Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champions. Listen to this week’s show, it’s a recap of the Scars ‘n Stripes event.

Stride Pro Wrestling returns to Carterville on Saturday, Aug. 3. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

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.

Nerds United Episode 138: Spider-Man Far From Home and other Marvel Topics

This week we welcome back the Co-Host of the Year Mike Luther. Mike saw Spider-Man Far From Home on opening day and talked briefly about the movie (NO SPOILERS). We also discussed Season Three of Jessica Jones on Netflix, Avenger: Endgame being re-released to theaters and how what was added upset some movie-goers. But we also talked about dreams and how reality sometimes creeps into them. We talk about The Walking Dead ending its tremendous run, and the beer we are drinking.

PLUS

Your voice was heard and you, the fans of the podcast, are now and shall forever be referred to as “Nerdy Nimrods.”

Positive Cynicism 99: Looking back at 1999

July 2019 on the Positive Cynicism podcast is all about celebrating the 20th anniversary of 1999. The first episode examines the social events of the year as well as events of the ’90s as a whole that led to 1999.

In a bit of shocking revelation for @chadsmart, the 90’s saw the rise in cynical attitudes. @TheTravisYates helps break down sports, music and politics to reason out why and how cynicism rose to popularity and if there are any ways to swing the level back to the positive side.

Intro music: 1999 – Charlie XCX and Troye Sivan

Dance Break: Jungle Love – Prince

Ending song: 1999 – Prince

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 241: AEW vs. WWE

I don’t know if this is the best title for the show, but I do talk a lot about both companies. While I am a WWE loyalist, I am glad there is going to be something else out there for fans to choose from. And it seems AEW is keeping WWE on its toes for now.

Stride Pro Wrestling has a show Saturday, July 6 at the building in Carterville. It’s Scars & Stripes! Learn more here.

Nerds United Episode 137: Comic Creator and Comic Series Actor Jason White

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?

Positive Cynicism EP. 98: Wonder Why; Skee Lo

This month on Wonder Why, @chadsmart and @MikeDeKalb hit the Santa Monica Pier for some skeeball while discussing the Wishfulness of Skee Lo’s 1995 hit. While Skee Lo may have wished he was taller, a baller, or he had a rabbit in a hat with a bat, maybe he should have wished for more success from his debut album.

While the album did garner two Grammy nominations and had tracks on the motion picture soundtracks for “Money Train” and “Big Bully,” some behind the scene battles derailed Skee Lo’s momentum.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 130: The Globe-Trotting Nathaniel Perlow

This week on the Five Heart podcast, we get to visit with long-time Corn Nation contributor and first-time podcast guest Nathaniel Perlow. Nathaniel has been traveling abroad for some time and contributes with the Frosted Flakes each week. In this episode, we’ll learn about Nathaniel’s Husker fandom and how he came to write for Corn Nation.

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?

Positive Cynicism EP. 97: Play Gloria

Deviating from the normal schedule, instead of talking Politics this week, @chadsmart is joined by @MikeDeKalb for a discussion about the 2019 NHL Champion St. Louis Blues and their theme song “Gloria.”

After completing the Quest for All 31 NHL Arenas in March with a game in Boston, Chad and Mike returned to TD Gardens for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. What was the deciding factor for going to game 7? What emotions were they feeling as history was made?

The bigger question is how did a hit song from 1982 become the rallying theme for the St. Louis Blues? Who is the singer behind the song? What other songs have been adopted by sports teams as rallying cries? All this and more on this episode of Positive Cynicism.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 239: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Rowdy & Proud’

It’s hard to argue the greatness of ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. This week we raise a can of Rowdy & Proud by Three Taverns Craft Brewery to Hot Rod himself. I’m joined by Stride Pro Wrestling star Ax Allwardt. We discuss the beer and Piper. We throw in some comments about today’s wrestling scene and how it compares to the 80s.

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.

In the age of easily watching episode after episode of a TV show, binge watching has become an almost preferable method of viewing.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 238: From Fan to Pro

When you’re a fan of something, typically your view of whatever it may be changes once you get a peak behind the curtain. Good or bad, it’s inevitable when you know how the magic is made, you view it differently. That was my experience when I started ring announcing. And that’s the case for this week’s guest, Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champion Tony Flood. We discuss his fandom and transition into the ring.

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.

Building an empire one podcast at a time.
