Nerds United Ep. 254: Hawkeye and Turkey Before Turkey

It’s time to celebrate that annual tradition of Turkey Before Turkey. This episode, Mike and Greg do just that. Then the guys talk about some dinosaurs via the first few minutes of Jurassic World: Dominion. Also there’s a new trailer for DC League of Super-Pets, which some online claim is the tipping point of saturation for Dwayne Johnson. Mike has an opinion on that.

And the boys certainly talk about the new show that just dropped on Disney+, that being Hawkeye. The first two episodes are available and both guys had the opportunity to watch them. Should be a fun little show.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 366: Movie Mania

Movie Mania is back and since it’s the Rock’s 25th anniversary in wrestling, we’re taking a look at one of his early films, The Rundown. Chad Smart and I talk more about the movie as well as Dwayne Johnson’s growth as an actor and whether he needs to return to the ring.

Nerds United Episode 253: The Top of Tom

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg briefly discuss a few movies they took in over the weekend, one old and one new.

And with all the Tom Hanks Talk recently, from Greyhound to Mike’s recommendation of Finch, we decided last week to do a Top Five Tom Hanks Movies list.

The problem is…Tom Hanks hasn’t made a bad movie. So it’s really just different orders of all of his good movies. And with help from you the listener, we aggregated a top Tom Hanks list of yours.

So enjoy the show!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 365: 2 Is Greater Than 1

It’s been a while, but my co-host Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton returns for another episode of 2 Is Greater Than 1. This week we talk all about his actions at the latest Stride Pro Wrestling show. His appearance was a surprise to everyone at the show, including me. Be sure to come out on Saturday, Dec. 11, and hopefully, we get more insight into what’s happening in the mind of Hatton.

Nerds United Ep. 252: Disney Plus Day and Its Many Treasures

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike break down all of the info we got from Disney+ Day, from the shows we were told were coming to the teaser trailers we were given, to the movies that dropped on 11/12.

Greg finally saw Shang Chi. The guys both watched Home Sweet Home Alone. And Jungle Cruise? Well, we’ll get to that.

Then Mike and Greg briefly touch on Red Notice, as Greg hadn’t finished it by the recording.

Also, Tom Hanks gave his top-three movies of his, so we’re prepping our top five Tom Hanks movies for next week.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 364: What’s In a Name?

Bron Breakker. Bray Wyatt. Randy Savage. They’re all second-generation wrestlers but don’t share the same name as their famous fathers. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Chad Smart and I discuss it on this week’s podcast.

Nerds United Episode 251: Eternals, Dune, and Mel Brooks

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike are separated once more (SAD FACE) but you can’t keep them away from their internet terminals.

This past week, Mike saw Eternals, Greg watched Greyhound and Dune, both of the guys watched Army of Thieves.

Heist movies are fun! More heist movies, less of everything else!

And we’ve pretty much set it in stone that we’ll have a new Nerds United on YouTube video next week. So be looking for that.

And be kind.

Nerds United Episode 250: It’s Episode 250!

This week on Nerds United, we are celebrating for our 250th episode. Mike is IN THE HOUSE and we’re talking about trailers for everything from He-Man to Buzz Lightyear, plus much more! Locke & Key, a little bit of Dune, Brooklyn 99, and Castlevania!

And it’s our 250th episode, so we recall when Mike came aboard and how without him we would probably only be at 150 episodes.

So…18 more years and we’ll be to Episode 1,000!

Nerds United Episode 249: Recapping DC Fandome and Telling Stories

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike discuss DC Fandome 2021 (almost all of it – we have a technical snafu right when we were talking about The Batman, so we’ll go over that again next week). Also, Greg took a little time and went to see Venom – Let There Be Carnage.

And the guys tell some stories and discuss a couple beers.

Next week is Episode 250 and we’re planning on getting together in person, so that will be cool. We haven’t recorded a show in person for well over a year and it’s time to fix that.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 361: Movie Mania

It’s Halloween season, and no WWE Superstar embodies the holiday like the Undertaker. So this week on Movie Mania, Chad Smart and I are covering the Netflix special Escape from the Undertaker.

Nerds United Episode 248: Our Top Five Horror Movies

This show is a very special show because we are celebrating Best Friend of the Show Josh’s birthday…without him.

Well, Josh provided the topic. And BFotS Josh is a classic horror movie guy. The old Universal monsters? Well, he’s preparing to play all of those movies on his home theatre in the next couple of weeks. So when I told him that for his birthday we were letting him choose the topic for a top five episode, and he picked horror movies…well, he is in for some disappointment.

So we say from the bottom of our hearts…Happy Birthday, Josh. We’re sorry.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 360: Wrestling Under the Influence

We have an idea for a rom-com about a podcast host. Please contact us.

And there’s lots of Titans talk, and Greg had a day. He sure did.

Also, ladies…beards or bods? Yes you have to answer.

Nerds United Episode 244: An Ode to Comic Book Stores

In this episode, Mike and Greg discuss their recent trips to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) and their experiences there. It’s a crazy thing, having a local comic book shop. People (like Best Friend of the Show Josh) don’t have one and pine for the ability to swing by regularly and visit with the familiar faces and grab a couple books. But I think a lot of people who have quick access to a local comic shop take it for granted. They get a few monthly subscriptions, and they don’t swing by and pick up their books.

Don’t be those people.

Also this episode, Spider-Man is in the news, and we throw some love to The Matrix.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 355: 2 is Greater Than 1

Nerds United Episode 242: We Love Ted Lasso

In this episode of Nerds United, we spend a few minutes with some noteworthy news (DC, AMC, Chronicle 2). But really, this is an episode dedicated to Theodore “Ted” Lasso.

Ted Lasso is a show on AppleTV that I highly, HIGHLY recommend. It is such a remarkable series that it can’t be put into words. But yet we try to do it for roughly 35 minutes.

Ted…Lasso. Watch it!

Or wait another five weeks and binge both seasons in your week-long free trial.

Nerds United Episode 241: The Suicide Squad

Clouds, they’re great for yelling at. As a couple of 40-something, life-long wrestling fans, Chad Smart and I have seen a lot in the world of pro wrestling.

Nerds United Episode 236: The Tomorrow War Plus Greg Read Stuff

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg are back at it having watched The Tomorrow War over the holiday weekend.

Plus, Greg finally finished a graphic novel he bought a couple months ago and said he’d finish “pretty quickly.” And there’s BRZRKR #2.

There’s more as well. But I can’t remember it all, as I’ve slept since then.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 346: Ask My 1-2-3 Cents

I’m on vacation this week, so I’ve reached out to listeners for a few questions. In addition to that, I’m sharing a few thoughts on other things going on in the world of pro wrestling, including JR’s recent gaffe and the death of Del Wilkes.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 345: 2 is Greater Than 1

This week on Nerds United, more nerdy topics as Greg and Mike discuss the newest trailers for Shang Chi and The Suicide Squad. Plus, there’s talk after the third episode of Loki.

We also get into Batman and if he has a driver’s license or if Alfred just drives him around everywhere.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 344: Movie Mania

This week’s podcast smells like… We’ll let you finish the line from the cult classic (maybe) No Holds Barred. It’s this month’s Movie Mania film. Chad Smart of the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to break down the film and discuss who we’d recast in the roles of Rip and Zeus. You might be surprised.

This week on a new Nerds United, Greg and Mike talk about the newest DC/Vertigo sensation on Netflix, “Sweet Tooth.” But also, the second season trailer of Star Girl (complete with Green Lantern!), and we go in out way back machines to talk about the cult classib 1984 DUNE.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 343: The Interview

Lex Luger and Nikita Koloff were big rivals back in the day, but now they’re teaming up for Jesus. The duo traveled to southern Illinois in 2011, and I had a chance to interview them.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 342: Confessions of An Indy Ring Announcer

Ten years ago this week, I made my pro wrestling managerial debut, kinda. I had the good fortune of ‘managing’ TNA Knockout Velvet Sky at an event here in southern Illinois. I tell that story in this week’s podcast.

This week on Nerds United (NOT the Five Heart Podcast), Mike and Greg do another quick recap of Army of the Dead as well as a quick rundown of some news that hit the wire.

Then the guys give their top five lists (those are still a thing) of animated children’s/family movies. And once again, the YouTube M8s come through with some sweet sweet extras.

Nerds United Episode 231: More Dwayne Johnson Than Expected

This week on Nerds United, we have a shorter episode for you, and it is accidentally heavily featuring a certain statuesque cut of granite.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 339: Movie Mania

It’s almost May 19th, and we’re watching WWE Films’ See No Evil to celebrate. The WWE Hall of Famer Kane stars in this horror flick from 2006, which spawned a sequel several years later. This week, Chad Smart of the PCPN (Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network) joins me to discuss the film and provide a little background info on the crew.

Nerds United Episode 230: Jupiter’s Legacy, Dave Bautista, and More

This week on the podcast, Mike and Greg discuss Mark Millar’s first venture into Netflix, or maybe we should word that “Netflix’ first venture into Millarworld” with Jupiter’s Legacy.

We discuss the binge versus weekly release, how this show’s release differs from The Boys, Invincible, The Mandalorian, WandaVision, and Captain America and the Winter Soldier, and how the prolonged exposure of weekly episode releases affects the longevity of the news cycle for the shows.

Also, Dave Bautista pitched a Gears of War movie to Warner Bros, so Greg tells Mike what Gears of War is.

Also, more Ryan Reynolds than most podcasts this week, probably.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 338: Two is Greater Than 1

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Nerds United Episode 219: Video Game Movies

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss some video game adaptations.

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

The Royal Rumble is one of WWE’s greatest events. This week Chad Smart and I do a deep dive into the 1991 Royal Rumble. How do you rate this installment of the event?

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.
