Sledge & Hammer #9: SEC Yah

17Oct

It’s been a while sense Kevin and Stacey has talked about cars… I wonder if they have moved past the whole Elon Musk and electric car fixation?

Ah…

Nope.

Well, the Paris Autoshow surely pulled them off this topic, right?

Ah…

Nope.

How about a pop quiz about the largest car manufactures and who will be around in 20 years?

Ok…

Then I guess just listen to them ramble… It’s what Sledge does best anyway.

Plus. New Intro

That’s So Braven Special: ‘Star vs The Forces of Evil Giveaway,’ creative space

28Sep

Yes, you're in the right place. Disney Books Group hit me up to host a giveaway for the "Star vs The Forces Evil" inspired "The Magic Book of Spells," and it seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up. 

The Disney XD show is ridiculously adorable, insane and yet inconceivably relatable, and I can't recommend it enough. Drew turned me onto this show a couple of years ago, and here we are. 

Also included in the giveaway is one of Stars’ wands, headbands and some wand enamel pins. The book itself is listed at $19.99, and is available online and hit stores earlier this month.

All you need to do to score this killer prize package is rate, review and subscribe to The Court of Nerds on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts, take a screenshot showing you completed the aforementioned task and send it to the Court of Nerds on Twitter, Facebook or email at thecourtofnerdspodcast@gmai.com.

Seriously, that’s it. Prove to us that you rated, review and subscribed and we’ll write your name (or email address, social media handle, etc.) on a piece of paper, put it in a container and draw in a Facebook Live broadcast.

Since we might be joined by some new listeners, I did a brief rundown on myself Benjamin Raven, the group, our podcasts, our history and what we're about. This is typically my wrestling-centric show, so at the end of the episode I touch on my in-ring training starting a bit and a wrestling show you need to check out.

The Court of Nerds #156: In Defense of GR Comic Con w/ Mark Hodges

19Sep

What a night for Drew to be all by his lonesome! 

Following what seemed like a benign announcement from our home Con which you can find here, the internet exploded in every direction. Accusations flew wildly, things were said and videos were made. 

At the end of it all, GRCC founder Mark Hodges is here hoping to provide some answers, dispell some myths and rumors and hopefully set the record straight. 

Normally, this is not the type of podcast we do with Mark but we wanted to make sure he had the chance to say what he felt he needed to say about everything. We hope that people listen to the whole thing, hear what Mark had to say and make a choice from there.

Every story has 2 sides.

The Court of Nerds #155: Capes in? Capes out? What is it all about?

13Sep

So yesterday, many believed (including us) that Superman actor Henry Cavill was exiting the DC Universe. That coupled with the consistent reports that Batfleck ALSO wants out lead us to record this podcast last night. We put some spit shine and polish on it, in an effort to make this one sound good for once and got ready to post it...

...as it's revealed that Cavill was only out of his cameo in Shazam. 

STILL

We did a lot of exploring about how to reboot the DCEU if it does need to happen and broke down a lot of interesting biz. 

At least this is still better than Cavill's edited out mustache?

That’s So Braven #38: All In, Starrcast, we’re getting bad at numbering

7Sep

It's been one week since we set up shop on Podcast Row at Starrcast, and Ben is feeling the best he has all week so why the hell not record some thoughts on the convention and having orgasmic seats for the historic All In show. Con sickness is real, and Ben hasn't slept in 10 days but he still loves you. 

You can listen here and anywhere else you get your podcasts, but please find away to subscribe, rate and review The Court of Nerds podcast. Here is the link to our iTunes page, support us any way you can! Thanks!

That’s So Braven Starrcast: Maffew of Botchamania finally meets his biggest fan in Ben

31Aug

Maffew, the mad genius behind the Botchamania series, has a lot of fans out there but perhaps none bigger than our very own Benjamin Raven. The day after rocking a panel with Ron Funches and Tony Schiavone, he sat down with the Court of Nerds here on Starrcast's Buffalo Wild Wings Podcast Row. 

Support Maffew's Patreon for Botchamania here, Ben is a longtime supporter and so can you.

That’s So Braven Starrcast: MJF yells at people from our table because he’s better than you

31Aug

The title of this interview episode speaks for itself, MJF stopped by our table, talked some Dojo Pro, being Cody's best friend and eating caviar and then he yelled at people in line. Pretty standard fun stuff, check it out and look out for MJF at All In and Starrcast. He's a blast.
