For the first time, it’s Ask Hatton, and Hunsperger as a part of 2 is Greater Than 1. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I are taking questions from listeners and fans of Stride Pro Wrestling.  It’s a fun show! Thanks to everyone who asked a question.

Nerds United Episode 229: Updates Around Pop Culture

This week on Nerds United, it’s very much a news cycle show. We pull a few headlines, elaborate on some things, and get out of there in under and hour.

Which is good, since our YouTube show this week went almost 45 minutes.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 337: Confessions of An Indy Ring Announcer

Where are you on the dirt sheets of pro wrestling? Some people love them; others hate them. I’d say I’m in the middle but tend to be more annoyed/irritated by them than a consumer.  I talk more about that and the original intentions for the My 1-2-3 Cents brand.

Nerds United Episode 228: Invincible Season Finale

This week on a new Nerds United, Mike and Greg hit a few news headlines and discuss the season finale of Invincible.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Then Mike had a really cool idea for putting characters in climates or time periods they are not customarily assigned.

Lots of opportunities for feedback, so please leave some.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 336: The Interview

Custom wrestling figures have become a big-time hobby and, in some cases, business for fans. My friend Dan Turnquist, aka Red Daniels,  has a lot of talent in creating replica belts for action figures. He talks all about the process with me on this week’s episode. You can see his work on his Instagram page. Click here for that info. Or on his Facebook page.

Nerds United Episode 227: Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Invincible, and More

Well, we couldn’t get together last week, so we are back with an hour of podcast-y goodness. There are spoilers of Falcon and Winter Soldier, so use your best judgement, but also don’t complain if you don’t.

Invincible – we talk about that great show. As well as Greg nearing the end of Swamp Thing (free on the CW app).

I think that’s it. It’s hard to say – we recorded this episode two nights ago. Since then, a part of my house has been painted and furniture has been relocated, so who knows. The whole world is all topsy-turvy right now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 335: Movie Mania

Movie Mania is back, and this time, we’re taking a closer look at the 2006 WWE Films movie The Marine, starring John Cena. This was John Cena’s first film and one of the first produced by the company.

Nerds United Episode 226: Time Traveling with Mike and Greg

This week’s show features discussion on dreams and sleep (or lackthereof). Also Easter treats.

But we’re really here to go back in time to tell filmmakers that some of their ideas are not going to be received terribly well.

Give it a listen and then tell us what we missed.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 333: WrestleMania on the 7s

WrestleMania has been around for many, many years. This week on the podcast, we’re looking at the shows that end in the number 7 and comparing and contrasting the cards. It’s a fun stroll down memory lane.

Nerds United Episode 225: Insert Title Here

This week on a new Nerds United, Mike and Greg go over a number of topics, including shows and movies they watched recently. New releases for shows The Falcon and Winter Soldier and Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.

Also, a little movie called Godzilla vs Kong dropped on HBO Max this week, and both guys had a chance to watch it.

But the most surprising part of the show at all was Mike running down the titles he’s read in the past week, ending on Stephanie Phillips’ A Man Among Ye. That wasn’t the surprising part, but the really joyful aspect was the discussion that erupted when talking about Phillips’ success since she was a guest on the podcast in Fall of 2019. So check out the podcast and check out Phillips’ work across several publishers.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 332: 2 is Greater Than 1

Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) has been around for years and has quite a following. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton of Stride Pro Wrestling recently returned to the company after a long absence.

new episode about The Mighty Ducks, Falcon and Winter Soldier, Invincible, all new this week.

Plus some various news and notes!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 331: Confessions of An Indy Ring Announcer

Billy Gunn is one of the most decorated tag team wrestlers of all-time, having won gold with multiple partners through the years. In 2005, I had a unique opportunity to meet Gunn. That story is this week’s podcast!

Nerds United Episode 223: Snyder Cut

This week’s new episode of Nerds United is, as you would guess, all about that 4-hour movie that was released this week on HBO Max known as the Snyder Cut.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 330: Movie Mania

Movie Mania is back, and this time Scooby-Doo and the WrestleMania Mystery is our film.  Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to review this first animated movie by WWE Films and Hanna Barbera.

Nerds United Episode 222: Wandavision Finale plus…COMICS

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss the series finale of WandaVision, how it satisfied and how it left some people wanting more.

It all comes down to expectation (Greg speaking). If you just eat what they give you without jumping into various theories, I think you enjoy the show a lot more. But because various websites out there have to generate content to generate monetization, they just throw any spaghetti noodle at the wall to see what sticks, and then it’s Marvel’s fault when the fan theories don’t match the show they just watched.

Also – both of the guys read some comics and have some good suggestions, so visit your local comic book shop soon. Tell them we sent you.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 329: The Interview

It’s the Interview and this week I’m happy to spend some time with Stride Pro Wrestling General Manager Sam Hunter. We discuss everything from his fandom to the role of GM to the cool posters he’s created for events.

Besides his work with Stride and being a DJ, Sam is also a Twitch streamer. You can check him out right here!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 328: 2 is Greater Than 1

March 5, 2016, is the date of the first Stride Pro Wrestling show. The main event that night featured a fatal four-way to crown the first-ever champion. Ax Allwardt beat three others to do just that, Heath Hatton, Tony Flood, and Frank Wyatt.

Now, the company is preparing for the fifth anniversary of that event, and we like to call it Strideiversary. It’s set for Saturday, March 13, at the Stride Building at 1130 N. Divison Street in Carterville.

Nerds United Episode 221: Comics and Trailers

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk about what they’ve been reading, both the tippy-top of the mainstream and the self-publishers.

Then the duo discuss a series of trailers that dropped recently. And it would be made even more awesome if Greg had seen the trailers.

FULL DISCLOSURE…I did not give MODOK the justice it deserves.

My 1-2-3 Cents: Remembering the Mississippi Madman

On Monday, Feb. 15, 2021, the world lost an amazing wrestler and an even better person in the Mississippi Madman. I first met Madman back in 2010 as a fan. A short time later, I learned more about the man behind the character, Don Jackson.

He touched the lives of many. So this week’s show is dedicated to Madman’s memory. We’ll hear from several people who worked with Madman over the years.

If you’d like to contribute to Madman’s medical and funeral expenses, I encourage you to do so. Click this link to learn more.

Nerds United Episode 220: Comics and Movie Trailers

This week on the show, Mike and Greg give some discussion about books they have read in the last week. And Mike’s almost out of comics so we’re going to have to give him more.

Also, once again studios are releasing too many trailers for the same movie. It’s getting to the point where you can watch most of a movie from the trailers atvertising or it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 326: Movie Mania

Welcome to the premiere of Movie Mania, the newest episode idea for the My 1-2-3 Cents brand. Each month, Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network will join me to review a movie from WWE Films or one that is wrestling-related.

Our first pick (based on votes) is Fighting With My Family. We’ve come up with this rating system but are willing to tweak it so let us know; Main Event, Mid-Carder, and Enhancement Talent. Chad shares the story of how he met Paige and Renee Young as part of this episode as well.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 325: Confessions of an Indy Ring Announcer

The Miz is pretty awesome. I’ve always felt that way about him. In this week’s Confessions of an Indy Ring Announcer, I take you behind the scenes of my meeting with the Miz from January 2010. It’s been quite a trip since then for both of us.  Listen to the whole show, as I include the interview with him as well.

Nerds United Episode 218: Grimm, Watchmen, Skateman, and Wanda

This week on Nerds United, we cover a rare Neal Adams “miss” from the 1980s. Also, Mike’s been reading Watchmen, so we discuss aspects of the book so far.

Greg got Mike watching a show called Grimm. It’s free to Amazon Prime subscribers and now we both recommend it. I’ve watched two episodes since I started doing post-production. I could have had the editing done in about ten minutes, but GRIMM!

And as you  might expect…we talk about WandaVision in a way that we try to avoid spoilers until the very end of the show when we TOTALLY spoil something. We provide a warning.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 324: The Interview

World Class Championship Wrestling and the Von Erich family have a lot to do with my early fandom. Even when cousin Lance arrived on the scene to battle side-by-side with Kerry, Kevin, and Mike, I was all in.

There’s a fascinating story behind the character ‘Lance Von Erich,’ and I got the scoop from the co-author of the new book Lance By Chance: Wrestling as a Von Erich. Vinny Berry teamed up with Lance Vaughn for this book, which you can order right here.

Nerds United Episode 217: Kaijus vs Two Idiots

Well, the boys watched a movie this week, and decided to do a little talking about it. So if you like Godzilla, you’re probably not going to like us very much.

IT’S NOT OUR FAULT!

We’re just sort of ignorant to super heavyweight monster movies.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 323: Wrestling with the 90s

Nerds United Episode 216: Storylines We Want to See Adapted

Hello and welcome to another Nerds United Podcast!

Mike and Greg discuss a lot on this show, like the episodes thus far of WandaVision. Also, Beau Bridges is NOT the father of Jeff Bridges. We got to the bottom of that mystery in real time.

The big topic of conversation is Mike’s idea:

Comic book storylines we want to see adapted.

Marvel and DC are discussed. But we don’t list them all, so which stories do you want to see make an appearance in another medium?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 322: Movie Mania

Something new is starting here on the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast; Movie Mania! If you’re a fan of WWE Films or movies featuring wrestling, this will be the show for you.

Nerds United Episode 215: Multiversity and the Miyagi-Verse

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk about the Prez, a 21-year-old who was the FIRST TEENAGE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! It’s regrettable, to say the least.

Then Mike takes us into the Multiversity, which for all we know is a university on the DC Multiverse. Are you familiar with Captain Carrot?

Finally, we go to the Valley for a spoiler-filled conversation about Cobra Kai. The good, the tolerable, and how long can they pull this taffy?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 321: Confessions of An Indy Ring Announcer

It’s an updated version of episode 321, with an apology. I was pretty negative in the last go-around. For that, I’m sorry. If I hurt anyone, that was never my intent.

I decided to re-record and be more positive. I’m looking forward to a couple of ideas for the My 1-2-3 Cents brand in the coming weeks. I hope you’ll stay on board for the journey.

Nerds United Episode 214: Talking Fan-Favorite Stories

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike go back to our roots and the roots of the movies and television shows we love so much…

Comic Books!

Two favorite Batman stories and a newer Green Lantern origin story that is well worth the read!

Reading is fun. I should do more of it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 320: 2 is Greater Than 1

It’s a new year and time for a new episode of the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton of Stride Pro Wrestling joins me this week as we look at what the future holds for Stride.

A show is coming up on Saturday, Jan. 16. Tyler and I discuss the card and the process of training and character development in Stride Pro Wrestling.

Nerds United Episode 213: WW84 Review and SPOILERS!

It’s right there in the title. I don’t want to hear any chirping.

We watched a lot of shows and movies over the last two weeks, but the one that took the cake, the one with the greatest anticipation, was Wonder Woman 84.

Greg also watched Soul and Steel, a few shows. But really…this one’s all about WW84.

Power Half Hour Episode 52: So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

This Power Half Hour is NOT a half hour. It’s New Year’s Eve and You’re not dreaming. The Power Half Hour is for one time only almost a Power Full Hour!

This episode, Chad and Greg are washing their hands of this wretched year and looking forward to what is next.

It’s a bit of a therapy session for our lads, as the last nine months of isolation have been stressful.

However, at the end of the day, at the end of the year, we’re thankful to still be breathing. We’re thankful for jobs, for family, for bringing more life into this ridiculous world.

And our challenge to you, the internet, in 2021 is this: STFU!

We kid. Sort of. Instead, go back to that age-old saying of “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 319: The Centy Awards

The end of another year means it’s time for the annual Centy Awards. However, 2020 has been less than normal and this year’s ceremony is different too.

My co-host Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to discuss some of our favorite moments from 2020. We also spend some time paying tribute to Brodie Lee, fka Luke Harper.

POWER HALF HOUR: EP. 51: Christmas Memories

Greg and Chad wind down the holiday themed episodes with a look at some Christmas memories. From yearly traditions to best and worst Christmases, it’s all here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 318: Wrestling Under the Influence

It’s the week of Christmas, and we’re celebrating with a few of our favorite Christmas related moments (and Santa Claus related appearances) in the world of pro wrestling. Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to look back at some fun yuletide memories. What’s on your list?

I also try Santa’s Little Helper by Port Brewing Company. Of course, this is to keep with the Christmas theme of the show.

Nerds United Episode 212: Mandalorian Spoilers (but that’s not all)

It’s a little bit of old age and gray hair, a trip down Regrettable Superhero Lane, and then…

MANDALORIAN SPOILERS!

If you aren’t caught up on Mandalorian, we make it very VERY clear when the Mando talk begins with a plethora of spoiler warnings. So feel free to listen up to that point.

 

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 50: Christmas Movies

The week before Christmas brings a discussion of Christmas movies to the Power Half Hour. Greg and Chad discuss what makes a good Christmas movie. If a movie is set around Christmas time but doesn’t actually involve Christmas, is it a Christmas movie? Do we need any more Christmas Carol movies? Are certain Christmas movies overrated?

Nerds United Episode 211: Tons of Disney, Marvel, Star Wars News

This week on Nerds United, we are just over 24 hours removed from a pretty significant news dump from Disney, which includes a ton of Marvel and Disney shows and movies.

And we learn about Fatman the Human Flying Saucer.

 

Power Half Hour Episode 49: Christmas TV Specials

The spirit of Christmas continues on the Power Half Hour with a look at Christmas themed episodes of television shows and specials. Well, more of a tourettes session of tossing out random shows and making small talk about them.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 316: Two is Greater Than One

It’s a jam-packed episode this week. It’s Episode 316, so of course, Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I are discussing our favorite ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin memories and doing a watch-along of our tag team title match from Aug. 2019.

Fire up YouTube and watch along with us. We do that toward the end of this week’s show. You can click the link here to see the match. (It’s Jay Spade’s YouTube channel.)

Nerds United Episode 210: HBO to the MAX!

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike discuss all the happenings over at HBO Max. Every movie Warner Brothers is set to release in theaters in 2021 will spend a month on the streaming service as well as being in theaters.

The Snyder Cut will be out in “a few months.”

Could Jack Black ever replace Chris Pratt? How is that even a thing?

And Oscar Isaac continues to find work.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 48: Christmas Songs

Attention shifts from the being thankful to the most wonderful time of the year on this episode of the Power Half Hour. Once Thanksgiving dinner was eaten, it officially became fair game to blast Christmas songs 24 hours a day. Greg and Chad spend this episode discussing their favorite Christmas songs and albums. From the classic carols to modern day versions, all genres are represented.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 315: Wrestling Under the Influence

This week, we’re paying tribute to the Undertaker. My co-host Chad Smart and I run down the Undertaker’s historic 30-year career and share some thoughts on the big moments and matches from the Dead Man. I try Saugatuck Brewing’s The G.O.A.T., which is a pretty damn good oatmeal stout.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 47: Be Thankful

As we round the corner to the most wonderful time of the year (and really, in 2020, just getting to the end of the year may be wonderful), Greg and Chad take time to talk about their typical Thanksgiving day and any family traditions.

Nerds United Episode 209: All the DC News That’s Fit to Print

Snyder Cut, Wonder Woman 84, Batman Statue, Black Lightning.

And somehow, Deadpool makes his way into the conversation.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 314: The Interview

I’ve made plenty of friends through the world of independent wrestling and podcasting. One of them is this week’s guest, Seanan Young. Mr. 100 is the founder of Podzilla 1985, home of many great shows, including Pro Wrestling Unscripted.

He’s also a big part of Cape Championship Wrestling. We discuss his involvement there and what the future looks like during these uncertain times with COVID-19.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 46: Food Mascot Survivor Series

Being the week before Thanksgiving, this episode of the Power Half Hour “borrows” the concept from My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast episode 313 and puts our own spin on the WWE November transition of the Survivor Series.

Greg and Chad pick 5 food mascots to face each other in an elimination style match. If anyone wants to create the teams on a console platform wrestling game and give us the results, that would be pretty awesome.

Nerds United Episode 208: Author Adam Testa

This special episode of Nerds United gets us back to our roots – talking with creators.

Adam Testa has released his first novel (we learn in the show that he’s working on more). Adam has ties to Southern Illinois and we have some common friends, like Kevin and Chad, familiar voices here on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network.

Adam’s debut novel, To Live and Die at Shadow Ridge, is an adult thriller that draws inspiration from Dan Brown’s work, as Adam names Brown as his favorite author (along with R.L. Stine).

Get the book right now. And leave a review on Amazon so more people can find it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 313: Team Kevin vs. Team Chad

It’s Survivor Series season and this week Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to talk more about the annual event. But we also assemble our own teams. Each of us came up with a team of five past survivors from Survivor Series and it’s up to you to pick who has the best team. Let us know in the comments!

Nerds United Episode 207: Movie and Series Updates

This week on Nerds United, we’re here to update you and give our thoughts on various updates from Hollywood, like Wonder Woman 1984 and Constantine, the Snyder Cut, Umbrella Academy, and WandaVision.

Plus learn about Speed Centaur.

Power Half Hour EP. 45: No One Likes Chicago

This episode of the Power Half Hour goes off the rails pretty early. Instead of playing a random game of “Google’s Popular Questions,” Greg and Chad diverge into a half hour of listing everything they don’t like about Chicago. As downstate residents of Illinois, the two are not impressed with the power Chi-town wields over the Land of Lincoln.

If you’re a fan of Chicago or from Chicago, send all hate mail to itsajokenotreally@noonecares.com

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 312: Let’s Give Back

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a rough ride for most of us. That includes the pro wrestling world. However, we can make it a bit brighter. This week’s podcast is all about the My 1-2-3 Cents/Stride Pro Wrestling Action Figure Drive.

Nerds United Episode 206: Haircuts can be Long and Expensive

In this episode, Mike got a haircut. Mike’s son got a haircut. And it cost a FORTURE! Meanwhile, Greg needs a haircut.

Also, Mike’s still reading, and this time went back to Justice League of America: The Tornado’s Path, written by Brad Meltzer and Ed Benes.

Also, there’s some good Lovecraft Country discussion now that the (first?) season has ended. That is one messed up show that is totally worth watching!

Also apparently we had some sound issues at times. I hope it’s not too bad for you the listener.

Power Half Hour EP. 44: College Freshmen

The fall semester may be nearly complete so what better time for Greg and Chad to look back at their freshmen year of college. One made a sensible decision to stay close to home and go to Community College while the other made a cross country trip to attend the same college Geraldo Rivera attended.

What would they do differently if they could turn back time and relive their freshmen year over?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 311: 2 is Greater Than 1

Did you know Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I have more in common than holding the Stride Pro Wrestling tag team championships? We both separately had tryouts for TNA/Impact Wrestling. So this week, we recall our experiences.

We also discuss the fate of Stride. We are struggling with the mandates coming as a result of COVID-19. Rent must still be paid on our building. If you’re interested in helping, please let us know.

Nerds United Episode 205: Preparing for Halloween, Among Other Things

This week on Nerds United, we have some Halloween prep work to do. But around the candy talk, we discuss comic books, movies, tv, and more.

Well let’s get into it. We recorded this before either o us saw the second season premiere of The Mandalorian. So there’s nothing on that.

But if you like Moon Knight, you’ll get some Moon Knight talk, from a lead actor to a hired director.

Shang Chi wrapped filming in Australia, proving that work can get done if you have the means to WORK IN AUSTRALIA!

And then there’s Fatman. It’s just…well it’s Santa Claus who’s unable to be Santa Claus.

Enjoy. And be kind.

Power Half Hour Episode 43: Urban Legends and the Paranormal

This week is a very special episode of the Power Half Hour, as the Co-Host on the West Coast traveled all the way to Illinois to record with Greg in person. No other reason. No other podcast to record or people to see. It was all about this podcast for you.

Wrapping up our Halloween-themed month, we talk about urban legends and folk lore. But that’s a relatively short conversation, so we expand to more broad topics like believing in ghosts and why “Searching for Bigfoot” type shows always end the same.

Happy Halloween. Go out and run amok. You’ll be wearing a mask anyway!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 310: Wrestling with the 90s

Halloween Havoc is a pay-per-view brand that got its start back in 1989. For 12 years, it was one of WCW’s biggest events, some years trumping Starrcade.

Now, 20 years after the last WCW Halloween Havoc, WWE brings back the concept with NXT. This week, Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to talk more about our favorite moments from this banner event.

Nerds United Episode 204: Multiple Justice League Topics

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike discuss an early wrestler-turned-hero by the name of Nightmare and his teen sidekick Sleepy.

There’s a trip to Mike’s Reading Room, where we have a discussion about Brad Meltzer’s run on Justice League of America, from The Lightning Sage to Identity Crisis. Mike’s moved away from Marvel/DC for the moment and will give us an update on what he’s reading again next week.

Then we get into the news, from kid shows like Chip n Dale’s Rescue Rangers and Power Rangers to Joker and Deathstroke coming into the Snyder Cut of the Justice League.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 42: Horror Films

October rolls along with another Power Half Hour Spooktober entry. This time, Greg and Chad are discussing horror films. One of them grew up on horror films while the other is a scaredy cat. What type of horror films get the approval nod and which get the unnecessary badge? Is CATS the best horror film of all time? That is a topic that doesn’t get discussed at all.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 309: Wrestling Under the Influence

Andre the Giant was one of the all-time greats in pro wrestling. His career kind of halted in 1990, and he never received the send-off that I, as a fan, would have liked to have seen.

So this week, I’m rebooking Andre’s final two years in wrestling and doing it with a Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter by my side. Special thanks to Tom Harness for the beer.

Nerds United Episode 203: Please Take My Stuff!

Doctor Hormone. Ever hear of the guy? If not, get the “Doctor Hormone for Dummies…by Dummies” version on this episode.

Also, following up on last week’s discussion, SCIENCE gets involved in the grand debate of Superman vs Thor.

Then some news and notes from the world of comics and pop culture and we’re out of there.

Also, and I mean this…the Nerds United Prize Vault is full and with twins on the way, I need to make some room. If you want to receive some random prize, please email nerdsunitedpodcast@gmail.com

POWER HALF HOUR: EP. 41: Halloween Candy

The second installment of the Half Hour Halloween episodes focuses on the best part of trick or treating; the candy. Greg and Chad discuss some of their favorite sugary treats and the disappointment of getting tricked with black licorice or a box of raisins.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 308: The Interview

Bo Sawyer has been wrestling on the indy scene for many years now and has evolved along the way. On this week’s podcast, we talk about that evolution and the introduction of a new character, Graven. He explains the name and the look behind this monster among men.

Check out Bo right here on TikTok.  His YouTube channel is here.  And you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@BoSmashU and

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg hit the news, well, all the news that matters.

And then it’s show time.

Round One: Green Lantern vs Hawkeye

Round Two: Captain America vs Batman

Round Three: Superman vs Thor

We make our cases. You decide the winners.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 40: Halloween Costumes

By podcasting law, the month of October has to be devoted to Halloween themed episodes. We’re kicking off the spooky themed shows with a look back at some of our favorite Halloween costumes. From homemade costumes to store bought generic costumes, Greg and Chad had a variety of different costumes to choose from.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 307: 2 is Greater Than 1

It was eight years ago that Heath Hatton battled Adam Pearce for the NWA World’s Heavyweight Championship in All-American Pro Wrestling. This week on the podcast, Tyler and I do a watch-along of the match and discuss the behind-the-scenes activity surrounding it.

Nerds United Episode 201: More Lion King? No Thanks

This week on Nerds United, Greg gets conflicting reports on another Lion King movie. Will it be a prequel? A sequel? And do we even need one?

Also, there’s mention of a particular multi-colored super hero from 1942, Electro in the MCU, Ms. Marvel, and Duke damn Nukem!

Enjoy.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 39: Pop Culture Moments

Over the last forty years there have been too many pop culture moments to recap in thirty minutes. So instead of trying to do so, Greg and Chad cherry pick some of their favorite moments from their lifetimes. Events from the 1980s and 1990s are the main focus. Some are well known and some are little known. What moments are discussed? Only one way to find out. Hit the play button.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 306: Wrestling with the 80s

On Saturday, September 14, 1985, Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n Wrestling made its debut on CBS. While the cartoon may have been shortlived, it did create plenty of great memories for this old wrestling fan.

This week on the podcast, my co-host Chad Smart of the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network (PCPN), and I break down the cartoon and share a few tidbits about it.

Nerds United Episode 200: This is It! Episode 200!

This week on a very special episode of Nerds United, well, there’s something of a celebration in the air. It’s the 200th episode of the podcast.

It takes a lot of dedication to put in over seven years and two hundred episodes, countless hours, for no monetary return. Am I patting myself on the back? Maybe a little.

But we wouldn’t be 200 episodes in without you, the listener. So I sincerely and profoundly thank you.

Now as for this week’s episode, we do have some news and notes to pass along. But the bulk of the episode is answering your questions. And we had some doozies. And in the meantime, Josh got himself a promotion. Congrats Josh!

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 38: DISAPPOINTING MOVIES

Inspired by a conversation with former “Tom and Jim’s Top 5” co-host (and Power Half Hour special guest) Tom Skull, this episode looks at films that might make a Bottom 5 list. Greg and Chad discuss some of the movies that took moments of their lives without giving anything in return.

Movies from acclaimed directors with award winning actors to movies with lesser pedigrees, no film is off limits. Have you seen any of the movies discussed? Do you agree with our assessments? You can leave a comment on the Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Facebook page.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 305: The Interview

One of my favorite things about Stride Pro Wrestling is the opportunities being given to young talent. B-Rad is one of the trainees at the Stride Pro Wrestling School and is currently the company’s Legacy Champion.

B-Rad, aka Tristan McPeak, shares stories of his fandom and how he transitioned from sitting in the front row to winning his first wrestling championship. We also learn a few fun facts about B-Rad as well.

Nerds United Episode 199: From Driving with a Teenager to Birds of Prey

This week on the Nerds United podcast, Greg and Mike talk about a whole bevy of topics, including our co-host of the year doing some baking and driving around with his teenage son. Listen to the tales of wild mishaps and good people.

Also, nerd stuff. Like the casting of Kang the Conqueror and the casting of She-Hulk. The trailer is out for The Mandalorian Season 2. Wonder Woman 84 is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day. And Lovecraft Country and Birds of Prey are worthy watches on HBO Max.

So…what should we do for our 200th episode?

Greg and Mike were guests/contestants on The @ 6’s and 7’s Podcast recently and that episode is live now. You can check it out here.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 37: ROSE COLORED GLASSES

Nostalgia is a popular topic on the Jittery Monkey and Positive Cynicism podcast networks. This episode of the Power Half Hour continues that trend. Greg and Chad look at mall culture and how technology has killed off the thrill of grabbing an Orange Julius and looking through rows of cassettes and CDs at Sam Goody’s. Now malls are basically regulated to Hot Topics and Game Stops.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 304: Wrestling Under the Influence

Do you smell what the Rock is drinking? Yes, it’s Teremana Tequila and my guest co-host Chad Smart (of the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network #PCPN) joins me for a shot as well.

In this episode, we tackle a lot of things, including the tequila, the Rock, current WWE and AEW stories, Chad’s Stride Pro Wrestling debut and his support of the group For Kids’ Sake. Learn more about their virtual Superhero 5K right here.

Nerds United Episode 198: Fatherhood, Walkers, and Karate

On this very special episode of Nerds United, we reveal a closely guarded secret about Greg. And then we talk about being a dad, because we’re both dad’s.

Also, Brother Power the Geek, an actual DC Comics title in the late 1960’s (from the same guy who co-created Captain America – will wonders never cease).

The Walking Dead is ending after its eleventh season, but has already apparently named two survivors for an upcoming spin-off. And they didn’t even provide us with a “SPOILER” tag.

The second season of The Boys is out and it’s a lot of fun. Darkly humorous, bloody, gruesome, vulgar, filthy fun.

And also – Cobra Kai is a board-smashing hit in our homes.

So that’s it. That’s the episode. But you should really listen to get all the details of things I took the time to type out here.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 36: From Page to Screen

Reading creates movies in your brain. Then Hollywood comes along and turns the words of the page into a cinematic wonder that usually fails to live up to your mind’s creation. But every so often, the story is too good to screw up. That’s when you get a good film. On this episode of the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad talk about what makes a good page to screen adaptation. They also throw out some of their favorite movies based on books they’ve read.

Nerds United Episode 197: John Garrett and “What’s Your And?”

This week on Nerds United, Greg talks with John Garrett, a self-described recovering accountant. John is a comedian AND consultant AND now an author.

John wrote “What’s Your And,” a book about unlocking the person within the professional. Years of podcast guests sharing their passions at the workplace inspired John to write this book about being your whole self at work, not just the part that you perceive as “professional.”

Hear John tell how bringing your passions, be it kayaking, motorcycles, opera singing, or even podcasting, can benefit you professionally with your co-workers and even clients. “What’s Your Age” is available to pre-order on Amazon right now (link below) and is available through numerous other outlets on September 15th.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 303: 2 Is Greater Than 1

Our Stride Pride is definitely shining on this week’s episode of the podcast. My co-host Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I talk about our 10 favorite matches in Stride Pro Wrestling’s four-year history.

If you are just now discovering Stride Pro Wrestling because we’re able to air shows on YouTube, we’d love to hear from you. Longtime fans, make your voices heard too. We want your input.  Check out Stride’s YouTube channel here.

Nerds United Episode 196: Cobra Kai and Other News Notes

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg do some last-minute topic research, and learn about possible prices for the upcoming PS5 (spoiler – we can’t afford one).

We also discuss Cobra Kai on Netflix and debate ensues regarding the age of Ralph Macchio. Did you know he’s only eight years younger than Greg’s dad?

Also, Mandolorian Season 2 is on its way, and production on The Batman continues without its start, who has the Covid.

POWER HALF HOUR: EP. 35: MASKED AND ANSWERED

Seems like everywhere you go these days one constant question is “Mask or no mask.” On this episode of the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad turn the tables and discuss some of their favorite superhero and wrestling masks.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 302: Beyond ThunderDome

COVID-19 has put a damper on a lot of things but it has also provided us with new opportunities like WWE’s ThunderDome. The technology gives fans watching a home the live crowd experience that’s been missing since quarantine started in the spring.

I tried getting in on the action for SummerSlam and even after getting an email telling me I was in, I was in fact not. However, my guest co-host this week was in attendance for the biggest party of the summer. Jeff Holtke shares his experiences with ThunderDome.

Nerds United Episode 195: RIP Chadwick plus Fandome News

Well, this is an unusual episode to say the least. It was supposed to be largely about DC Fandome and talking about all of those great trailers and tidbits we got last week.

But shortly into our episode, we were rocked by the news of the passing of Chadwick Boseman at the far too young age of 43 after battling cancer for four years. No one knew. Well, publicly.

So after that and a few other interruptions on Greg’s end, we do manage to get through the show.

POWER HALF HOUR: EP. 34: THE NEW NEW CLASS

It’s the end of August which means one thing. The new school year is here. Even though a lot of schools aren’t technically “open” to start the year, Greg and Chad took the suggestion to share school memories for this episode of the Power Half Hour. Well, they took that suggestion and then flipped it a bit to discuss one of the best shows about school; Saved By The Bell.

From trivia about the failed pilot for the show through the Vegas wedding, they talk about some of their favorite moments from the show and point out that Zach Morris is Trash.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 301: Million $ Man

It’s a My 1-2-3 Cents Classic as we step back to 2012 for an interview I did with the ‘Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase. He is truly one of the all-time greats. I’ve been honored to interview him not once but twice over the years. Please enjoy.

Nerds United Episode 194: The Nerd Dome is Better than the Fandome

Do you remember the olden days when I used to refer to the podcast recording location as the Nerd Dome? Like the Thunder Dome except with less thunder and more nerds.

Anyway, this week we’re talking about DC Fandome, a 24-hour nerd extravaganza that begins probably right about now. I’m not sure. It’s a guess. Also – Batfleck is BACK! Disney+ should add an adult-only (not like that) section. And another Spider-man rogue member is lined up for his own movie.

We also take some quality questions from you, the lovely listeners. So we thank you.

POWER HALF HOUR EP. 33: WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK ….

Back in the days before DVR and streaming video, you had very little choice to skip commercials. If you recorded your favorite program on a VHS tape, you could later fast forward through the commercials but if you were watching live television, every 7-8 minutes, you were trapped for 2 minutes while corporations tried to sell your their goods.

On this episode of the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad talk about why there are commercials and what makes for a successful commercial. Along the way, Greg plays the audio to some of the more memorable commercials from his youth. Come with us on the journey to relive the past through 30 seconds of consumerism.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 300: Celebrating 1985

We made it to 300 episodes! To celebrate, I figured I’d connect two of my favorite formats for the show, Wrestling with the 80s and Wrestling Under the Influence.

My buddy Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me for this look back at the year 1985. I also enjoy a couple of cold ones, appropriately called 1985 by New Belgium Brewing Company.

Nerds United Episode 193: Umbrella Academy and Project Power

What can we say…it’has been a Netflix week.

POWER HALF HOUR EP: 32. FILM CLUB; THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON

It’s been awhile since Greg and Chad talked reviewed a film. That’s about to change as the new Power Half Hour looks at the 2019 release, “The Peanut Butter Falcon.” A Tom Sawyer-esque tale of two outlaws on the run form an unlikely friendship.

Shia LaBeouf plays Tyler, an unlicensed crab fisherman haunted by mistakes of his past. Newcomer Zack Gottsagen is Zak, a devoted fan of wrestler the “Red Neck Renegade” who dreams of training at the Renegade’s wrestling school and becoming a popular bad guy. As they make their way down the coast of North Carolina, they come to understand who they are is more than who the world sees them.

What did Greg and Chad think of the film? What life lessons did they take away from the film? Are you reading this far into the description?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 299: Ask My 1-2-3 Cents

Nerds United Episode 192: Look kids! It’s Chad Smart!

This week on Nerds United, we have a special guest in legendary podcaster Chad Smart!

Chad co-hosts Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour here on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network, and turned his Positive Cynicism podcast into the Positive Cynicism Podcast Network, which includes four shows. And he recently started another podcast called Out of Touchstone.

Chad was brought in to help Greg draw a comparison between Star Wars fans and wrestling fans. It does not go great for Greg.

Also, Mulan is coming to Disney+ and there’s a Suicide Squad game in the works from the same people who created the Batman Arkham series. So there’s that.

And here’s the latest YouTube video.

Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour Episode 31: Book Club

No, Greg and Chad aren’t starting an official Jittery Monkey book club. Though, they may be open to the idea if you ask (@thehooch36, @chadsmart). On this episode of the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad talk about some of their favorite books and reading habits. Chad also spends a lot of time trying to get Greg to veer off into tangents. With only 30 minutes to talk, does Greg take the bait?

Along the way, there is debate of book vs. movie and an surprise movie reference. See if you can find Waldo in this episode.
