NerdVsWorld

NerdVsWorld is a podcast from two thirtysomething nerds from Oxford: Brendan and Spindles. It was born out of the amalgamation of Brendan's NerdVsWorld youtube show and Si and Ady's Eclectic Technicolour Podcast of Awesome.

Every fortnight the lads tackle the latest news in Film, TV, Comics, Gadgets, Nerd Culture and more.

As well as this we also have special guests on the show in the form of various authors, actors and musicians. So far there have been appearances from the likes of Robert Rankin, Jonathan Green, Emma Newman, Megan Hayes, Professor Elemental and Bitter Ruin to name but a few.

New episodes are released fortnightly on Fridays and you can find the latest episodes of NerdVsWorld below, or you can also:

Hello, and welcome to a very special edition of NerdVsWorld.  On this episode I chat with Pop Music Academic and Pop Culture Nerd, Dr. Jennifer Otter Bickerdike, about her latest book “Why Vinyl Matters.”

In “Why Vinyl Matters”, Jen chats with some great and notable names within the music industry (Henry Rollins, Lars Ulrich, Nick Hornby, Norman Cook, Fat Mike.. and many more) about their memories of vinyl.

We discuss these memories on the podcast, looking at how one’s connection to creating music can affect the way in which you idolise the vinyl medium. We also talk about the similarities between record collectors and comic collectors, how our collections help define us, the love for physical media, and what comic shops could learn from the resurgence and relevance of the modern record shop.

Jen also adds her Five Films to our “NerdVsWorld Films You Have to See” list.
