We're just a couple of guys from New Orleans who like talking about comics and other nerdy things. Come! Witness the spectacle!

Week 3 of Convergence has begun, and DC is taking us back to the 80s for a Pre-Crisis Gotham City showdown! Revel in nostalgia as we discuss everything from Justice League Detroit, headband Supergirl, the Legion, atomic knights riding atop giant Dalmatians, and, according to Chris, the only good time period for Hawkman ever. Beyond that the NOLAnerds also discuss the new staus quo for Ice Man, tackle another Image debut, revel in the return of Velvet and Lazarus, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Ice Man Cometh Out" Finneman, Chris "Loves Cyborg's Hot Pants" Robinson, and guest star Andy "Pandering" Nemo as they talk shop!

Today is a momentous occasion for our little TV show podcast. For the first time, every single show we cover had a new episode that aired last week. An exciting and exhausting prospect to be sure. This week we talk the neutering of the "Calvary", that corridor fight from Daredevil, and the two part Atom crossover.

It's week two of the massive DC Comics Convergence mega event! Last week we were treated to a pre Flashpoint Gotham City. This week welcomes us to the 90's era pre Zero Hour Metropolis! So beyond seeing what Aquaman, Superboy, the Suicide Squad, Green Lantern, and more were doing back in the 90s, this week the NOLAnerds also check out a whopping SIX Image books, including the return of the all star creative team of Think Tank on their brand new book, The Tithe! Add in some Marvel goodness and you have one hell of a week in comics! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Time Bandit" Finneman and Chris "Time Asshole" Robinson as they chit chat with guest star Andy "Kon El" Niemann about comics!

Despite all the DC shows taking a break this week, we still found plenty to talk about for the TV show. This week we talk about how Chris was wrong about iZombie, the effects on Powers and the season premiere of Daredevil.

The NOLAnerds "converge" on each other to discuss the massive debut of the company wide major comics event, DC's Convergence! Old is new again as the NOLAnerds relive their favorite pre-New 52 heroes in their original glory. But DC isn't the only game in town, as a massive five Image books flood the discussion with their quantity AND quality. We discuss everything from the history of Saga's Marko, to the over saturation of Rocket Raccoon, to how glorious it is to have Greg Rucka writing Renee Montoya again, and so much more! So join NOLnerds Matt "Converging" Finneman and Chris "Muppet" Robinson and guest star Andy "Instigator" Niemann as the talk comics!

What happened to episode 22? That is an excellent question, and one I have no answer for. Apparently we forgot to upload it. Too bad too, it was a doozy with two dozen comics reviewed and discussed! MAYBE ONE DAY! Until then, enjoy the final week before DC throws everyone a curve ball with Convergence. In fact, this was a week full of endings and one new beginning courtesy of another quality Image debut. We say goodbye to two of our DC weeklies, the final round of DC books, but we welcome our new summer event overlord as well. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Clue Master" Finneman and Chris "Talon's Back" Robinson as they break it down for you all nice like.

To the surprise of none of us, March was once again a major powerhouse in gaming. "The Spring Holiday" I like to call it when no one is listening so they won't make fun of me. This year, March takes on a special significance since it marked the release of what many are calling the first "true next gen must have game" with the release of the PS4's Bloodborne. But this month was also chock full of gaming news from GDC 2015, the shock that Nintendo is going mobile, and the release of a ton of insanely high quality indie games. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Axiom Verge-tastic" Finneman, Chris "Next Time On" Robinson, Garrett "Salty" Platner, Mason "Revelations Master" Maldonado, Ronald "BloodBorn for This" Bienemy, Doug "Ori" Rosenthal, Andy "Last Gen Holdout" Niemann and Dolly "Half Life 3 Confirmed" Pop as they break it all down!

Between the roast of Justin Bieber and the events of the weekend, a low key team gathers to talk television. This week we discuss Barry's terrible no good very bad day, the charm of Izombie and how crazy competent Ray Palmer is.

TV is back baby! We are back! Happy days are here again! A full week of TV and a new premiere? It's an embarrassment of riches! This week we talk zombies, the awfulness of Barry and Iris' relationship and how everyone on Powers, except for the villains, kinda suck
