Understanding The Disney Fox Acquisition

The biggest news of the year was announced this week and Martin just had to talk about it. Welcome to a special edition of the Nerdy Legion podcast. Martin goes solo for this one to discuss just what the Disney Fox deal means for us geeks including what Disney is and is not purchasing, the implications across TV, movies and comics, and a whole lot more.

Need a little joy in your life? Then you've come to the right place! Join Nick and Martin every week as they take a seat on the comfy couch for an in-depth discussion at all things nerd as they dive into subjects ranging from tv, movies, comics, tech and more!

Nerdy Legion is hosted by Martin Ferretti and Nick Wetz and produced by Martin Ferretti.

It's time for another episode of The Nerdy Legion, the show that talks about everything that encompasses geek culture.

In this week's episode, we get back to comic book talk and discuss the merits of trade waiting. The industry has moved to writing story arcs for four or five issue trades - how has this affected comic book readers and the industry as a whole? What are some great trades we really love? Listen in and find out!

Sometimes when the official recordings stop, the conversation goes to the gutter and we talk about anything that we want - thus an "After Dark" episode is born. In this first The Nerdy Legion After Dark, Martin, Paul, Nick and Julian sit around and talk about the entertainment juggernaut that is professional wrestling as we dive a bit into the dirty side of the sports.

In our fourth episode, The Nerdy Legion unites to try something a little different - four nerds enter the Thunderdome to play a geek culture trivia challenge. Who will be crowned the ultimate nerd? Will Paul win by cheating? Will Julian's Doctor Who knowledge be enough to put him on the top? Will Rob crawl his way to vicotory? Will Nick prove himself to hold the ultimate Kryptonian knowledge? Listen in and find out!

We've talked comics quite a bit over the first couple of episodes of The Nerdy Legion so it's time for us to switch topics for a couple of weeks and this week, we take a look at some of our favorite childhood cartoons and why we still think they are awesome. Join Martin, Paul, Julian and Rob on a very sentimental episode that really takes us back in the day!

Once again, I am amazed by the range of tastes from the panel, so let us know what you think! What was your favorite childhood cartoon?

Welcome to the second episode of The Nerdy Legion, our bi-weekly roundtable show where we tackle all things nerdy.

In this episode, we start off talking about the recently released Deadpool trailer, and Martin's long and complicated history with Rob Liefeld before moving on to some of our favorite crossovers of all time. For some reason, we all decided to pick some of the most obscure comic book crossovers ever published so be sure to tune in to hear our thoughts or check out the show notes to see what we chose.
