This week we recorded live, in front of a patio audience, at Bottoms Up, a pub just down the road from the Michigan Renaissance Festival. This episode is a little different from others. You get several guests who have been long time performers at the Michigan Renaissance Festival telling some of their favorite stories and what it’s like to be a ren faire performer. We also talk some nerd news. HUGE thank yous to everyone that took the time to come on the show and talk to us, as well as all the fans.
It’s good to be able to laugh at your own mistakes, like doing the show for 20 minutes and then realizing that you didn’t actually hit record. This week we are joined by special guest, and long time listener, Dr. Ed Rohn. We discuss the Henry Cavill/Superman rumors. We also talk about the now live DC Universe streaming service and some of the upcoming shows. We touch on the new anime from the writer and director team of Avatar: The Last Airbender that just premiered on Netflix; The Dragon Prince. And as nerds do when we get together and drink, we ramble through a bunch of other nerdy topics.
This week we say goodbye to the legendary actor, Burt Reynolds, who passed away this week. We talk a little bit about some of our favorite movies from his extensive catalog. We also discuss the new pictures that have been released for the upcoming Marvel movie, Captain Marvel. We also talk about several nerd news stories such as the Dr Who premier date, Hasbro movies, and Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
This week we welcome another guest, Stevo aka Hob The Troll. We talk Renaissance Festivals and some of the experiences Russ and Stevo have had. We talk D&D and D&D Beyond. We discuss the Happytime Murders opening weekend box office numbers. We mention the new Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay video. We get into some movie news and lots of nerdy side tracks as usual.
