Power Half Hour 77: Ask Greg and Chad with Special Guest Kevin!

The Power Half Hour (and Change) is back and this time, we’re bringing a friend.

Kevin Hunsperger of My 1-2-3 Cents (the podcast and also www.my123cents.com) is the moderator and plays Captain Question in a spur of the moment episode where he asks Chad and Greg various questions.

It’s a solid episode with insight into nostalgia and much more.

And also it’s the first episode in almost a month so be happy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 409: The Interview

David Lee Walker has been a part of Stride Pro Wrestling for a couple of years and recently won his first singles championship. He’s the new No Limits Champion. And this week, he’s my guest on the podcast. We talk about hi

Nerds United 295: D23 Review

This week on Nerds United, Greg recaps his week as a single parent. There’s some Constantine news as Keanu Reeves is coming BACK!

Last weekend was D23 and it was rife with news and trailers. So naturally the guys discuss everything from The Santa Clauses to The Thunderbolts!

Enjoy. Be kind.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 408: Wrestling Under the Influence

RVD was known as Mr. Monday Night, so it only seemed fitting to pair him with Hot Fudge Monday, a brown ale by Mirror Twin Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky. It also gives me the excuse to pitch Rob Van Dam to be a part of episode 420 of this podcast. (Fingers crossed.)

Nerds United Episode 294: Only Eight More Months and then…It’s Gonna Be Me!

This week on Nerds United, Mike overcomes the plague, Greg is terrified of being home alone with his kids next week. The Joker has a name. There are some trailers that arrived.

As always – we appreciate you.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 407: The Birth of a Brand

Over the weekend, the My 1-2-3 Cents brand marked 12 years. It’s been a fantastic ride, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of it all. I thank you for your support too!

Nerds United 293: One Ring to Rule Them All

This week on the show, Mike provides us with an update on the 80s Movie Madness Tournament. The guys watched She-Hulk and Greg watched the first portion of Lord of the Rings: The Ring of Power.

No DC Fandome this year, and Ben Kinglsey could be returning to the MCU.

It’s general mayhem on the Nerds United Podcast.

Power Half Hour 76: Boy Meets Nostalgia

First of all…do not blame Greg for the featured photo. He was not the one to ruin your childhood. That was all Chad.

This week we look at the classic 90s TGIF television sow Boy Meets World. We discuss a few other notable series from that time, but really, it’s largely Boy Meets World. What about that show aids it to stand the test of time?

Chad calls it perhaps the greatest tv show of all time. And remember Mr. Feeny’s final words… “Do good.”

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 406: 2 Is Greater Than 1

The Royal Rumble is one of my favorite WWE events each year. Next month, Stride Pro Wrestling is trying its hand at the concept. The Stride Rumble is set for Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022, at the Sioux Drive Center in Marion, Illinois. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I discuss the Rumble and other news and notes from the world of pro wrestling, including AEW and WWE.

Nerds United 292: The Quest for the Best Title

Comic books were purchased. Comic books were read. We watched some tv and movies (She-Hulk, House of the Dragon, Uncharted) and an update on the 80s Movie Madness Tournament.

Enjoy.

Nerds United 291: An Evergreen Episode

This week on Nerds United is a special episode, we keep the conversation OFF of current topics.

No She-Hulk. No Sandman. No comics we read or recently purchased at Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL).

Instead, we have a topic inspired by The Sandman, a topic about favorite remembered dreams. We go on with a follow-up to a recent episode and the Cartoon All-Stars by creating Cartoon Intervention Teams for each other.

And lastly, have comic book movies peaked?

Enjoy the show. Rate. Review. Check out our Linktree, which was recently retooled.

Power Half Hour 75: Great Movie Debate

This week on the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad look at another of Greg’s podcasts, Nerds United. On Nerds United on Facebook and Twitter, Mike and Greg are having an 80s Movie Madness Tournament.

Chad has…opinions. He takes issue with some of the movies we left out of the tournament. And as you can see from the main photo, Chad decided to highlight The Apple’s absence from the tourney.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 405: Wrestling Under the Influence

The Hollywood Blondes are among the most iconic teams from the early 90s. But Brian Pillman and Steve Austin aren’t the first duos to use the name. I talk about that while trying Tea House: Morning Ceremony (a sour blonde ale) by Ebb and Flow Ferminations in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Nerds United 290: In and Out in Under an Hour

The brand new episode of Nerds United with Greg and Mike recalls Mike’s trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) and the purchases he made there. They also discuss their different approaches to reading comics. Who wants to prolong a good story and who wants to finish a story to move on to the next one?

A less-than-loved Ryan Reynolds movie is surprisingly getting a sequel. Greg learns on the show that Reynolds will not reprise his role.

Also – A couple trailers dropped throughout the week, including a true story that’s not based in genre. But could it end up being the best war movie of all time?

Finally…how was She-Hulk?

Enjoy. Tell your friends. We have compiled an easy-to-navigate link list at Linktree. Check it out.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 404: Potty Talk

The potty talk takes over the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast this week. It’s all part of Storytime, when I ran into three (now) WWE Hall of Famers in the bathroom at a wrestling show and one who will likely be a Hall of Famer one day.

Nerds United 289: Watching The Sandman, Reading Grim and More

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss The Sandman and Paper Girls, two comic book adaptations that hit streaming services recently.

There was also a fair bit of reading done the past week, as Greg read everything from Batman to Grim. And he pulled out his recent read of Locke and Key for all of the Sandman crossover therein.

Lastly, Greg and Mike did meet up this past week, haphazardly. And they watched a cartoon from 1990, to job their memory first, and they followed it all the way through “just because.”

Enjoy. Tell your friends. Leave a comment. Rate and review.

Power Half Hour 74: Big Sports Moments

This week on the Power Half Hour, Chad and Greg discuss some momentous occasions in sports. At least, some that have occurred in our lifetimes.

On the heels of watching Long Gone Summer, Greg and Chad revisit the Summer of 1998, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and the race for the record.

We also discuss a little bit about Lake Placid in 1980 and the Miracle on Ice.

On our journey towards more content, we ask: what do you want to hear?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 403: Confessions of an Indy Ring Announcer

Stride Pro Wrestling continues to amaze me. This past weekend we had two great shows, leading to a big event on Saturday, September 10. For the first time, Stride will have its version of the Royal Rumble, with 30 participants; past and present Stride stars will be involved. Plus, a grudge match between Heath Hatton and Cash and a Dog Collar Match between Bud Galloway and David Lee Walker. Be sure to join us that night at the Sioux Drive Center in Marion, Illinois!

Nerds United 288: Batgirl Nixed and 80s Movie Tourney Begins

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk about the biggest news of the week, Batgirl is no longer set for release. This alters the alleged DC timeline we discuss.

Also, 80s classic Road House is being remade over on Amazon, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. And that leads directly into the bigger news of the day, which if you follow us on social media, you already know:

We have an 80s Movie Tournament. Similar to our Christmas Movie Tournament a few years back, just comment in the match up and tell us who survives and who is gone.

64 movies. Already some tough, tough matches.

Enjoy. And Be kind.

Power Half Hour 73: Where Are They Now?

This week on the podcast, Greg and Chad discuss where the hell they’ve been in the last month.

Greg was on 1.5 vacations, and Chad has been busy as well, travelling to the Midwest more than once (why Chad, why) plus having a girlfriend. And Greg has cleaned up a lot of puke in the last week.

So it was almost a month since last we got together. We missed each other. And most importantly, we missed you.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 402: Wrestling Under the Influence

The Rock is one of the all-time greats in pro wrestling. And when I found a beer called Good Piebrations, I knew I had to dedicate this week’s podcast to the Great One. Try it too and let me know what you think.

Nerds United 287: New Episode for July 30, 2022

This week on Nerds United, Mike has a couple good questions he poses to the panel. Also, Mike did some reading, Greg did some viewing, and Paper Girls is available on Amazon Prime.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 401: Ric Flair’s Last Match

Ric Flair’s Last Match is coming up this weekend. It’s a three-day celebration of the man we call ‘Nature Boy.’ This week on the podcast, Chad Smart and I talk all about it, as we were both there for Flair’s retirement match at WrestleMania 24. What are your thoughts on The Man getting into the ring one more time?

Nerds United 286: SDCC and VKM = Busy Week

This week on Nerds United, Greg is back from vacation and that coincides with San Diego Comic Con.

Both Mike and Greg did some reading this past week – Mike with some classic Batman and Greg with a Moon Knight collection as well as a Locke and Key tie-in story that – bonus content I forgot to mention on the show itself – has a Sandman connection.

We talk about I am Groot and Spider-Man Freshman Year, spend a little time on Dungeons and Dragons, and discuss the bombshell news of the week in professional wrestling, that Vincent K McMahon has retired.

We were really just trolling Kevin from My 1-2-3 Cents and trying to scoop him, and while we recorded the show Friday night, we didn’t get a chance to get it uploaded until Saturday night. In the meantime, we picked a little fight with Kevin on Facebook and gave him a window to get his own “bonus show” out there. So check that out.

My 1-2-3 Cents Bonus Episode: Vince McMahon Retires

It’s a sentence, until recently, I never thought I’d hear, Vince McMahon is retiring. But the longtime leader of WWE has made the announcement and is stepping away from his company. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton has a unique perspective on the situation and joins me for this bonus episode of the podcast.

Nerds United 285: From The Boys to Thor

After a rare week off, Mike and Greg are back with a brand new show. In that week, the guys finished watching The Boys and Ms. Marvel and they even saw Thor: Love and Thunder.

Also, some good stuff about books that were read and the generosity of great people.

Spoilers, but you probably already figured that out.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 399: Wrestling Under the Influence

Dogs, birds, and snakes, oh my! Pets have been a big part of wrestling through the years. This week I’m toasting my favorite animals in the business while having Box of Chocolate by Charleville Microbrewery in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

Power Half Hour 72: Arenas and Stadiums, Rockers and Wrestlers Selling Them Out

This week, Chad is heading home to go to a concert, fulfilling a promise years in the making.

So on this week’s episode of the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad talk about finales and retirement, like Motley Crue’s final tour years ago, and Ric Flair’s retirement match at Wrestlemania 24 and his “last match” later this summer.

Now I’m not allowed to be cynical and just say these guys want a payday. Yes, being in front of a crowd is all they know (as well as being in front of ladies and comical piles of illegal drugs), but we can all agree that none of these performers are in their prime.

Still, if you want to support these aging acts (like I know you do), pitter patter. Enjoy yourself. Just realize that most of the people in the crowds are grandparents by now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 398: Wrestling Under the Influence

I’m celebrating the birth of our country with some beer and Lex Luger’s WWF run. It’s another Wrestling Under the Influence and this time Hell or High Water Watermelon Beer by 21st Amendment Brewing is the beer of choice. I’m pairing it with the USA-loving version of Lex Luger from 1993-95.

Nerds United 284: Umbrella Academy and 4th of July

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg prepare for the 4th of July (by Greg being extra old-man) and Mike can’t cook rice. Go figure.

Also, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is out and the guys talk about that show. And Game of Thrones is getting a spinoff but it’s not one we (okay, Greg) would most like to see. That doesn’t mean he won’t watch.

Also, which cinematic universe has more re-watch potential? MCU or the stuff from the DCEU? We have our thoughts but are curious as to yours.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 397: Wrestling Under the Influence

Steve Austin’s Broken Skull American Lager is the drink of choice for this week’s Wrestling Under the Influence. What!?! That’s right. It’s an excellent brew from El Segundo Brewing Company.

Nerds United 283: It’s Time for Sony to Sell Spider-Man

This week on the show, the guys admit to getting a little fresh air in their old age. Greg completed a comic and started a new one. Mike didn’t have time to read this week.

The guys finished Obi-Wan Kenobi and gave a few thoughts on it. But really, a fair amount of the conversation is on Sony screwing up a(nother) Spider-Man villain. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, star of the upcoming Kraven the Hunter movie, said that in this version, Kraven is a lover of animals and a protector of nature. That’s pretty much the farthest from the history of the character. So Greg decided that it’s time for Sony to be done with Spider-Man and all of his associates.

Power Half Hour 71: Struggles of a Wannabe Writer

This week on the Power Almost Half Hour, Chad and Greg talk about wanting to be writers. Or at least, having stories in their heads that they haven’t quite found a way to put onto paper.

Nerds United 282: Joker Sequel Could Add Lady Gaga?

In all honesty, it’s 7:40am on a Monday because I had a busy weekend and didn’t get this produced until now. And I have to shower and shave and get to work yet, so the write-up will be lacking.

This week on the show, Mike and I talked about some specific comics, the Joker sequel/Lady Gaga rumors, the fact that Guy Ritchie is developing a Hercules live-action movie, there’s a Duke Nukem movie in talks (again), and more.

Look, I don’t know what you want me to say…we recorded this show 36 hours ago and Mike’s the one who writes down all of the topics of discussion.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 396: Wrestling Under the Influence

Impact Wrestling is celebrating 20 years, so what better way to join the party than with an episode of Wrestling Under the Influence. I’m pairing Cake Eater Turtle Stout by Center Ice Brewing Company in St. Louis this week.

Power Half Hour 70: Star Wars Celebration Recap

This time around on the Power Half Hour, Chad regales us with his time spent at Star Wars Celebration back in May.

From the features photo, you can see the creativity put into some cosplay this year. Chad talks to us about some of the sights and sounds of the event.

Power Half Hour 69: Chad Revisits Monsterpalooza

**Editor’s note – this was actually last week’s episode and I’m not sure a) why it didn’t publish on the 7th and 2) why I didn’t realize until a week later that it didn’t pub. Apologies. You’ll get another new show tomorrow.

This week on the Power Half Hour (which some of you will be happy to see is under 30 minutes), we catch up on some of Chad’s whereabouts from recent weekends.

Up first – Monsterpalooza. It’s a horror con out in Pasadena, the home of roses and horror, apparently. What were some of the sights Chad saw, and which celebrities did he see while he was there?

If you like horror, you’ll probably like Monsterpalooza.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 395: Wrestling Under the Influence

Cheers, I’ve brought back Wrestling Under the Influence to the podcast. I’m trying Four Giants and the Haze of Destiny by Founders Brewing this time and talking about some of my favorite giants in the world of pro wrestling.

Nerds United 281: Does Marvel Care about Comic Book Sales?

This week on Nerds United, many topics are discussed. DC finally gave us a trailer for Black Adam (“finally,” despite the movie being four months away, right Mike?). Also, we both forgot Paper Girls on Amazon was a thing, and were surprised with some preliminary stills.

Kevin Smith is getting another bite of the Masters of the Universe apple. The internet reacted predictably.

The Sandman is also coming to Netflix.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a brilliant show, better than Stranger Things. That’s why Best Friend of the Show Josh is all caught up on one and not the other.

Also, Ms. Marvel debuted to a massive social media push. And Greg can only hope that the more diverse shows and movies which attract a more diverse audience mean that more people will GO BUY COMIC BOOKS! But Mike raises the question…does Marvel care any more about comic book sales?

We do have a little fun at the end, where we take one Marvel hero and one DC hero and put them together in a Lethal Weapon type of pair.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 394: Ageism in Wrestling

Ageism is alive and well in pro wrestling. It’s nothing new, really, but something that I’ve noticed a lot more of lately. This week, I share my thoughts on legends returning to the ring. By the way, here’s the clip on TikTok that I’m referring to in this podcast.

Nerds United 280: Mike Can Read Also

Last week on the show, Greg had a long list of comics he had read and wanted to discuss.

This time around, Mike’s reading list is as long as…well, it’s long. From Grim to Justice League Dark to Batman Damned and Saga, Mike has his hands full.

We also talk about trailers for Pinocchio and Gotham Knights, Greg watched Obi-Wan Kenobi while Mike watched Stranger Things Season 4. And both of the boys watched…The Boys.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 393: Time for a Change

Nerds United 279: Almost Obi-Wan

This week’s episode was recorded mere hours before Obi-Wan Kenobi was released, so there are absolutely zero spoilers in this episode.

We do talk about the first look at Andor, which was given to us last week, as well as some images of the new Blue Beetle. There was also an odd call in LA LA Land for body doubles for Ted Lasso actor Jason Sudeikis, which led to rumors of the actor to be attached to the Blue Beetle movie. However, seems like Mike squashed those rumors.

And last week, of course, we got the first full trailer (and what Greg hopes is the last trailer) for Thor: Love and Thunder.

It’s coming.

Power Half Hour 68: To All the Jobs We’ve Held Before

This time around, as promised at the end of the last episode, Chad and Greg are going through their professional journeys, the jobs they’ve held in life up to where they are today.

What was young Chad doing as a 12 or 14 year old? What part time job did Greg work during baseball season in high school? How did Greg get into radio? How did Chad end up in LA?

Every path is different. That’s the beauty of things.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 392: 2 Is Greater Than 1

I can’t even begin to explain how awesome this past Saturday night was. Rivals at Stride Pro Wrestling, but real-life friends, it was me and Heath Hatton going one on one in the ring. This week we give you a peek behind the curtain.

Nerds United 278: Rescue Rangers, Trailers, and a Plethora of Comics

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg both spent some time watching Chip N Dale’s Rescue Rangers movie this weekend and were pleasantly surprised by it, especially all of the crossovers into other intellectual properties.

Also, in the last week or so we, the viewing public, were given five different trailers for upcoming shows. She-Hulk, Cobra Kai, The Winchesters, The Boys, and The Umbrella Academy. The guys take a few minutes on each show and gauge anticipation.

Finally, well, actually firstly in the timeline of the show, Greg gives an update on some of the comics he’s been reading. Good enjoyable works, one and all.

Power Half Hour 67: Chad’s Departure from the Workforce

This week on the Power Half Hour, the duo discusses Chad’s recent departure from his previous employer.

Look, at the end of the day, you have to A) feel satisfied with the work you do and 2) be compensated appropriately for it. And I get it…circumstances don’t always allow you to have both, or even one of those. But if you can, make the change.

And that’s largely what we discuss in this episode – the feeling of knowing your worth and thinking long-term to make sure you achieve it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 391: Breaking Up

They say that breaking up is hard to do. And I agree with who they are. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I have been friends for over a decade and won the Stride Pro Wrestling tag team titles back in 2019. But earlier this year, he took his frustrations out on me, and now we’re wrestling each other on May 21 in Marion, Illinois.

So ahead of that match, I thought it would be fun to countdown a few of my favorite wrestling breakups. Which ones are on your list? Let me!

Nerds United 277: The Full Doctor Strange 2 Discussion

This week on a brand new Nerds United, Greg has a slight existential crisis about growing older and possibly aging out of comic books. As he says in the show, if he retired tomorrow he’d have enough to read to keep him busy for a long time. But we do talk about comics we’re reading.

Greg then tried to sell Mike on Avatar by telling him it is like Dances with Wolves. Not sure how successful that is.

We also talk about the Green Lantern animated feature trailer that came out.

And…more Doctor Strange 2…including SPOILERS!

Power Half Hour 66: Remembering Our Senior Years

Spring is in the air, and that means allergies.

But it also means seniors across the country are preparing for prom or a class trip and then…graduation.

Now, it’s been 22 years since Greg was in high school, and it’s been 30 years since Chad graduated. But the guys do their best to relive some of the old days and share some stories from way back when.

Nerds United 276: A Little Doctor Strange, Plus Cancellations

This week on Nerds United, Mike gives updates on the comics he has finished reading while Greg is still working on the same one. Also, shows in their decline were cancelled by the CW and a good director left a high-profile job.

If that’s not enough, we recorded this episode in between our two hosts watching Doctor Strange 2 – In the Multiverse of Madness. And the MCU boss says “golly gee, maybe we showed too much in the trailers.”

I could have told you that.

Enjoy the show.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 389: Movie Mania TV Edition

Happy birthday to The Rock! To celebrate, Chad Smart and I are back with Movie Mania, but this time with a TV episode. We’re looking at Young Rock on NBC.

Nerds United 275: Awaiting Doctor Strange 2 – and Tired of “Leaks”

This week on the Nerds Untied Podcast, Mike and Greg are eagerly awaiting Doctor Strange. We’re also over the excessive amount of footage and leaks and reports about the movie. It’s getting to the point that you can’t be on the internet two weeks before the movie hits theaters.

Also – Mike finished reading Marvel’s Avengers vs X-Men and thinks it could be an MCU storyline someday. Also, Ghostbusters Afterlife is getting a sequel, as is The Batman (color us surprised).

And while it’s not in the featured photo, we do spend a few minutes at the outset talking about Neal Adams, considered by many to be the GOAT of comic book artists, who passed away the day we recorded. What a life and what a legacy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 388: 2 is Greater Than 1

Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton is back for another round of 2 is Greater Than 1, and this time he’s offering some words of wisdom. We talk about pro wrestling, including WWE, AEW, and, Stride Pro Wrestling. He and I are will be wrestling each other on Saturday, May 21, at the Sioux Drive Center in Marion, Illinois. Check our Facebook page for more details.

Nerds United 274: More Nostalgia and Stories than We Anticipated

Look…we know the type of show we aim to be but we also know the type of show we are. And this week, there just wasn’t as much meat on the ol’ nerdy topic bone.

So true to our theme music, “comic books, movies, tv, and more,” we lean heavily on the “and more” this week.

This is a chicken pot pie episode, a little bit of everything.

We hope you like it. If you don’t, I promise we’ll try harder next time. I may even have something special in the back of my mind for you all.

Power Half Hour 65: Now to Show Love to One Nic Cage

This week on the Power Half Hour (give or take), Chad and Greg keep the positive momentum flowing. This episode is all about Nicholas Cage, and how we appreciate him.

That’s pretty much it. I’m going to spend more time on the featured photo than I will on this write-up.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 387: Saluki Con 2022

The 2022 Saluki Con is in the books. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this year’s event.  I spoke to a small group about pro wrestling and podcasting, two of my favorite things. For those who don’t know, Saluki Con is an event held at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale to celebrate all things nerd culture.

Nerds United 273: Our Favorite Cheers

In this episode, Mike and Greg do some of the usual news and notes, but then the guys piggyback off of an idea from the recent Oscars. No, no slaps here. But the Oscars recently introduced a fan-choice category of favorite cheers, and we had some disagreements with that list, so we came up with our own.

Power Half Hour 64: The Weird Al Appreciation Episode

Friends, this special episode is a Greg Mehochko idea. On this episode of the Power Half Hour (plus a minute), we talk about the great Weird Al Yankovic.

Specifically, we talk about how we first heard of Weird Al and the movie currently in production based on his life (and also what “based on a true story” really means in Hollywood).

Finally, we run down some of our favorite Weird Al songs. Since this is a 30-ish minute show, we didn’t do clips. But we trust your ability to type things into YouTube.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 386: The Power of Nostalgia

I have always maintained that nostalgia is a powerful drug. That was very evident during WrestleMania weekend, as fans were treated to not one but two nights of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin doing what he does best. This week, Chad Smart and I talk about that, and the role nostalgia plays in modern-day wrestling.

Nerds United 272: Sonic 2, Moon Knight, and Miss America

This week on Nerds United, Greg snuck his oldest out of school Friday to take him to see Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – and it’s an enjoyable flick.

Mike watched some stuff this week, as did Greg. The guys also talk about the upcoming end of Locke and Key as well as Chace Crawford, The Deep on The Boys, wondering if he’s going to be able to find work again after the third season of The Boys.

And of course, we talked about the second episode of Moon Knight.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 385: Raw After WrestleMania

The Raw after WrestleMania has developed quite a reputation over the past decade. Chad Smart and I analyze the trend and talk about our experiences at some of these shows. What are your thoughts?

Nerds united 271: Moon Knight and Comics…AND MORBIUS!

This week on the podcast, Mike and Greg talk about Mike’s most recent trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) as well as Greg’s trip to the tailor (think Kingsman Tailor but less death…more shame).

Greg also did some reading in the last week. And the guys talk about Wrestlemania. We’re sorry, Kevin, we know that’s your realm. Also, Greg had a scare with the final episodes of Blue Mountain State, but that situation sorted itself out.

Moon Knight is LIVE! We discuss that first episode a little bit. And in a surprise turn, GREG SAW MORBIUS! AND HE LIKED IT! He gets into spoilers, but…also talks about what he likes about the movie and some of the familiar Marvel tropes.

Enjoy. Tell people.

Power Half Hour 63: Oh Boy…Hang on Tight

Just like Wil Smith, this episode of the Power (more than) Half Hour is taking off the gloves and slapping down Hollywood with discussion about the Oscars and how Hollywood is a giant pot of hypocrisy. From one sided political attacks to empty statements which betray the history of Hollywood’s bad behavior, this is an episode that unleashes years of pent up frustrations with Hollywood’s annual circle jerk. Chad is a an old man yelling at clouds while Greg just wants to know why Dewayne Johnson wasn’t nominated for his role in “Jungle Cruise.”

(*Warning: This episode may contain subject matter that some find objectionable.)

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 384: Mania Memories

It’s WrestleMania Week. To me, it’s one of the best weeks of the year, especially if you are on the location where WrestleMania is. This week, I share a few Mania Memories from WrestleManias IV, 22, and 32. Let me know your Mania experienced

Nerds United 270: Our Top Five TV Show Theme Songs

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss a few bits of news and notes before we turn our attention and your ears to our top five tv show theme songs.

Again – these are our favorites. It’s completely subjective.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 383: More Random Thoughts

Nerds united 269: Mike Spoils The Batman

Not for Greg. Greg had seen the movie. And we don’t talk about The Batman until the end of the show. So if you’re interested in hearing about Sonic 2 or Ms. Marvel or The Boys or what Greg acquired at Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL), please listen to the first 50 or so minutes of the show. We definitely provide ample warning when The Batman talk is coming along.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 382: Ask My 1-2-3 Cents

Nerds United 268: Changing Dates, Penguin on HBO Max, Pinocchio and The Boys

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk a little bit about several topics, including Warner/DC adjusting its theatrical release schedule, affecting several upcoming and anticipated films.

Also, on the heels of The Batman tearing it up in theaters, HBO Max has ordered a limited series for Colin Farrell’s The Penguin. Meanwhile, there are two Pinocchio’s coming to streaming services this year, and Mike says to avoid the Pinocchio from 2019.

We got an Obi-Wan trailer and a poster for the third season of The Boys (less than 24 hours after we recorded the podcast, we got a trailer for The Boys Season 3 – c’est la vie).

Power Half Hour 62: The MLB Episode

Allow me to put it this way…we talk about Major League Baseball as much as Major League Baseball is being played presently.

None. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

But we came into the recording with that on the agenda. And then the show became a series of anecdotes and sidebars. Hear about Greg’s last vacation (2012) and the hijinks that kept him from driving in a different state.

We do talk a little football (XFL anyone?) and some college football.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 381: The Interview

Strideiversary is in the books, and there is a new Heavyweight Champion. Dexter excitingly won the belt. This week he’s my guest for a quick post-victory interview.

Nerds United 266: The Batman (and The Guardians of Justice) Review

This week on Nerds United, we talk about some of what we’ve read lately (or plan to read). And Greg managed to watch ALL of The Guardians of Justice on Netflix (Mike watched one or two episodes).

Also, one of us made it to the theater to watch The Batman. And that person really enjoyed it. It’s very well done, with little to no extra stuff. It truly is Matt Reeves’ vision come to life. And Robert Pattinson is a tremendous Batman.

The guys discuss the new trailers for Morbius and Secrets of Dumbledore. And they round out the episode with a short conversation about unnecessary sequels.

Enjoy.

Power Half Hour 61: The Soundtracks to the Movies of Our Lives

This week on the Power Half Hour, Chad and Greg look back on their lives and prognosticate on their futures.

If their respective lives were to be turned into movies, here are some songs that would create a backbone of the film’s soundtrack.

The music spans several decades and genres. There’s something for everyone in the fictitious soundtracks of our never-to-be-made movies.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 380: We Love Stride Pro Wrestling

This Saturday (March 5) marks the six-year anniversary of Stride Pro Wrestling.  There will be a celebration that night, known as Strideiverary. If you live anywhere near southern Illinois, I encourage you to come out and support local indy wrestling. Get all the details on Strideiversary here.

This week on the podcast, I’m joined by some fans of Stride who are sharing their favorite moments of the company. If you’re a fan of Stride, let me know what’s on your list of best memories.

Nerds United 266: WE LIVE…for a Good Time

This week on Nerds United, we hear some updates about Greg’s family’s recent household stomach sickness. Mike also provides us with an update on the service work that his vehicle(s) needed.

Both of the guys had a chance to do some reading this week, with Mike getting started on Marvel’s The Ultimates. Greg read WE LIVE from Aftershock Comics. So amazing! Greg loves finding independent works that really stand out.

Plus there’s talk about The Batman and Spider-Man.

Power Half Hour 60: Highly Recommended

This week on the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad accidentally continue last week’s discussion about streaming services and curated choices.

So we get into the recommendations that mean the most…the ones from trusted friends. For example, if a friend tells you NOT to watch “Just Another Romantic Wrestling Comedy,” I guess you should listen.

And in the middle of it all, we got our topic for next week’s show.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 379: Movie Mania

The theme of love continues on the podcast this month. For Movie Mania, we’re checking out the film Just Another Romantic Wrestling Comedy. Wow is all I’ll say here… But if you want to watch the film, check it out here.

Nerds United 265: Peacemaker Finale, Doctor Strange, and Comics

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike are hanging out in person to talk about some comics they’ve read, as well as comics they are eager to read (new stuff expected this year from Stephanie Phillips, one of our favorites).

Of course, with the Super Bowl and the resulting fallout, we were given some pretty sweet trailers to enjoy.

Peacemaker also wrapped up this week. And what are the guys watching? Listen to find out.

Power Half Hour 59: How We Get Our Content Determines the Content We Get

This week on the most electrifying thirty-minute podcast in podcast history, Chad and Greg discuss the entertainment era we are in today.

Gone are the days of “flipping through the channels.” Let’s face it – there are way too many channels to just flip through them.

Hell, there are so many options in the streaming world that it’s almost impossible to find new things.

So with the overwhelming volume of options, and the algorithms that help you find choices similar to choices you’ve already made, the services are all curating tailor-made menus just for you.

And frankly, we’re not sure what to think of that.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 378: Dude Love

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m showing some love for Dude Love and three things dudes who love wrestling should have. It’s an idea from friend of the show Adam Hackbarth.  What’s on your list of must-haves and must-dos for the world of pro wrestling?

Nerds United 264: Reacher-ing…for Futurama

This week on the show…

Mike and Greg discuss some comic books as well as the return of Futurama, The Adam Project, and Reacher. And we try to do it all without spoilers…for Josh.

Power Half Hour 58: Super Bowl Sunday!

This week, we totally planned to absolutely drop this episode on Super Bowl Sunday. Yep.

Wrong. We actually had all sorts of scheduling difficulties.

But this week, Chad shares some insight into his venture to the NFL Experience last week. See, Chad lives in Los Angeles County, where the Super Bowl is going to be played by the local Rams and the Bengals of Cincinnati. So it was a timely discussion of hatred for the Rams, a nonchalant lack of interest in the Bengals, half time shows, commercials, and memories.

All jam packed into 30 minutes!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 377: 2 is Greater Than 1

A change of heart is pretty typical in the world of professional wrestling. We’ve seen good guys turn bad and bad guys turn good. But for us fans, some performers have made us have a change of heart. This week, Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I talk about a few wrestling personalities that we couldn’t stand at one time but are now fans of today. Who is on your list?

Nerds United 263: MCU Dormammu Looks Nothing Like Comic Dormammu

This week on the show, Greg informs Mike that the Doctor Strange movie is essentially the Green Lantern movie, but with the Marvel machine behind it.

And Mike talks about Murderville while the guys discuss Halo.

Power Half Hour 57: Saturday Mornings Revisited

This week on the Power Half Hour, Chad and Greg go back a few decades to share tales of yester-year.

Saturday Mornings. Cartoons. SLEEP! Breakfast. All wrapped up before Soul Train.

What helped those memories be cemented in our brains? What forgotten shows did we work really hard to remember?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 376: Movie Mania

This month on Movie Mania, Chad Smart and I look at the animated film Rumble, featuring voicework by WWE Superstars Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Terry Crews, and Will Arnett, among others. We also take a deep dive into celebrities in wrestling and the mainstream.

Nerds United 262: More Hellboy Please. PLEASE

This week on the show, Mike and Greg start with talking about Dairy Queen and Taco Bell, and the world famous chili cheese burrito.

On the subject of Taco Bell, the one time exclusive home of Baja Blast Mt. Dew, the soda is going HARD…as in Baja Blast Hard Seltzer. So be looking for that if you want the taste of Baja Blast Mt. Dew to be ruined forever.

Now, Ron Perlman is willing to do Hellboy 3, even if he’s not particularly eager. After all, he’s 71 years old.

Peter Dinklage was a guest on a much more popular podcast and shared his opinion on Disney’s live action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. So that sparks a discussion that you’re probably not going to want to miss.

Power Half Hour 56: “TV Shows,” per Chad’s Notes

This week on Greg and Chad’s Power Half Hour, the guys (Greg and Chad, oddly enough) discuss television shows that maybe don’t translate well into the 21st century.

And then there are the shows that just don’t age well.

And then there’s the fact that we only left ourselves twenty minutes to discuss this topic.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 375: The 1992 Royal Rumble

It’s hard to believe that 30 years have passed since the 1992 Royal Rumble. In which Ric Flair was the victor, that match will go down in history as one of the WWE’s greatest Rumble matches. This week, Chad Smart and I break down the match itself, the buildup, and the aftermath.

Power Half Hour 55: All Over the Map

This week’s episode was recorded a week ago which means that I have already forgotten what we discussed. So I’m doing my best to put together a show description with no recollection of the what was discussed on the show itself.

Among the topics:

The Golden Globes and diversity in Hollywood
Super Mario Bros.
The Mask

We have a better topic for the next show. Sometimes we just have to sit through the so-so to get to the good.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 374: The Interview

The Interview this month is a flashback to 2011 when I sat down with then TNA Knockouts Champion Mickie James. It’s all come full circle as James is the current Impact Wrestling Women’s Champion and is set to appear in the 2022 Royal Rumble later this month. I thought it would be a great time to share our conversation and add My 1-2-3 Cents to what’s currently happening.

Nerds United Ep. 260: We Just Made Some Lists

In this episode, Mike and Greg discuss and rank the nine Marvel productions we received in 2021. Then Greg shares what comic story he completed as well as what else he acquired from Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL).

There’s some Peacemaker discussion in the portion of the show we called the Intermission.

And then the guys rank the ten DC/Marvel movies we’re scheduled to get in 2022 in order of least to most anticipation.

As always, we hope you enjoy the show. And feel free to share it with others.

Power Half Hour Ep. 54: It’s the Hope that Kills Ya

This week on the Power Half Hour, it was intended to be a conversation about sports fandom and the inevitable crushing grief of the hope year in and year out that your team won’t be complete and utter garbage.

We get there, but also talk about how you can become a fan of a team that’s not in your immediate geographic area (as both of your hosts hold teams dear in their heart that are not necessarily geographically accessible.

And we messed up the timing at the end, so there’s that. But we abided by our promise to keep it under 30 minutes. YOU’RE WELCOME!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 373: My Wrestling Debut

It’s hard to believe, but ten years ago this week, I had my very first pro wrestling match. It was against Mike Masters at AAPW Main Event. So, who better to have on the podcast than Masters himself? We chat about the match, its buildup, and the aftermath. By the way, if you haven’t seen it, you can watch it right here.

Nerds United Ep. 259: Two Guys Talking Cobra Kai

Don’t let the name fool you…we talk about a lot more than Cobra Kai. We talk about Morbius being pushed back again (get ready for that April Fool’s Joke). We talk about high school memories and work meetings. And perhaps for the first time, we talk about the ongoing pandemic, not in a debate about masks and vaccines, but rather sharing memories or lack thereof from the last two years.

And then we talk about Season 4 of Cobra Kai.

And honestly, in any other world outside of the Karate Kid/Cobra Kai universe, is karate that popular in high school? Is it the “go to/must see” event for high schoolers?

Power Half Hour Ep. 53: We’re Back!

2021 was your worst year because it lacked Chad and Greg’s Power Half Hour.

In this relaunch of a reboot, Greg and Chad discuss the circumstances that had them put the podcast on the shelf, a decision that at least one of them thought was going to be permanent.

We’re excited to be back and look forward to bringing you a new show each week. So hit that Subscribe button again and we’ll see you next week.
