11 – The Silmarillion

Ricky and Dirk employ the help of their pal Steve to attempt the seemingly impossible task of explaining J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy mythological-history of Middle Earth in The Silmarillion.  Steve establishes his unshakable Dwarf fandom.  Dirk tells Dave a bedtime story about revenge and bloodlust.  Ricky is faced with his own mortality.  Dave discovers that he has a lot in common with the lord of all Evil.


We Get By With a Little Help from our Friends

Hi beautiful babies!

Dave, Ricky and Dirk are coming in hot next week with the 11th episode of Two Nerds and a Guy from Long Island!  SPOILER: It’s a fantasy thing.  Weird, right.

WE HIT OVER 1000 LISTENS LAST WEEK! Ridiculously awesome.  But we can’t do it without our listeners!  In attempts to get our sonic garbage into the ears of other nerd-curious folks, we ask that you take about 30 seconds to leave us a review!

Itunes is great, Twitter is great, Facebook is great.  And old school WORD OF MOUTH 🗣

Here’s to the next 1000 listens, and the 50,000 after that! (Dream big, right?)  WE LOVE Y’ALL!

10 – Old Man’s War

Ricky and Dirk pull a sci-fi hat trick by forcing a sleepy Dave listen to them geek out about John Scalzi’s Starship-Troopers-adjacent novel, Old Man’s War. Ricky sings a Gregorian battle hymn. Dirk gives us all a lesson on the properties of time-space. Dave. Has. His. Mind. BLOWN. (And loves it.)

06 – The Dark Tower (Part 1)

Ricky and Dirk do their best to start explaining Stephen King’s sprawling western-fantasy-scifi-horror-adventure series, The Dark Tower, to Dave.  He admits that it’s the first story he could possibly get into (if he could read). Dirk manages to talk about The Wheel of Time.  Ricky mindlessly brings back the controversial game, ‘Dave Talks’.  Dave gets REALLY DEEP about THE WORLD.

05 – Battlestar Galactica

Ricky and Dirk try to explain the ambitious science fiction space opera of Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009) to Dave. Full disclosure – we basically detail and question the ENTIRETY of the show’s plot in this episode. So, uh, spoiler alert. Ricky shits all over the charming robot film ‘Chappie’. Dirk rips open some glaring plot holes. Dave questions his own sexuality.

04 – The Wheel of Time (Part I)

Ricky and Dirk quickly realize they’ve made a huge mistake in trying to describe Robert Jordan’s sprawling high fantasy epic novel series, The Wheel of Time, to Dave. The boys reveal the origin story for this topic as well as the podcast. Dirk plays coy about his feelings for his favourite character and their clothing choices. Ricky investigates Robert Jordan’s murky past. Dave tells us the first thing he would say to a dog if he could speak to them. It’s not exactly mind-blowing.

Please consider leaving us a review on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts from!  (Dave will beat us up otherwise.)

03 – Final Fantasy

Ricky and Dirk try to explain the globally popular Role-playing game franchise, Final Fantasy, to Dave. Ricky repeatedly mistakenly refers to the episode as “episode two”. Dirk sings some jingles for our segments. Dave describes his very own ‘Final Fantasy’. It’s easily the most haunting thing Ricky and Dirk have had to sit through so far.

02 – Hearthstone

Ricky and Dirk try to explain Blizzard’s wildly successful on-line card game, Hearthstone, to Dave. We have a special guest on to help us explain the game. We then burn all ties to the guest very quickly. Bad idea? Hard to say. Dave mentions an arcade game he loved. Dirk reveals that he is, “For the wild!” Ricky edited out a LOT of conversations from this episode. Enjoy … ?

01 – Ready Player One

Ricky and Dirk talk to Dave about MMORPG’s and Ernest Cline’s book, Ready Player One. Dave dreams up his very own virtual world. It involves water slides and hot dogs. Yes, I wrote that right. Unfortunately. The boys talk WAY too much about hot dogs. We’re sorry. So, so sorry.
