Nerd News Network episode 72


Its the final Nerd News Network of 2015!
We’re ready to hang it up for the year but we have to talk about the box office juggernaut that is…

No, really…we will talk about Mike “The Birdman”Dodd’s non spoiler thoughts on Star Wars:The Force awakens in the opening of the show and so much more. We also get a chance to take a look at some of the stories that have made headlines this past week involving Star Wars and it’s race to 1 billion, Mel Brooks gets ready to “search for more money” and a big freaken lizard that will destroy ALL that you hold dear…or something.
Birdman also offers up some last minute reviews that could be stocking stufffers from two actors from the action cinema of the summer, from time traveling old men to crazy Tom Cruise fighting spies…its time to pick ONE as a stocking stuffer!

Big thanks to Ken, Steve and Matt for their gifts this holiday season!

Mike Dodd (113 Posts)

Birdman was born on October 20th 1981 and has been here there and everywhere, traveling across Canada and the USA as often as he can. However he calls Owen Sound,Ontario,Canada home for the most part, despite it being similar to Mos Eisley Spaceport. Grew up in the sticks of mid western Ontario and usually found absorbing data from all sorts of different sources, video games, movies and occasionally pirated TV. However it wasn’t till Mike heard the voice from the Kingdom of Nye, Art Bell that he knew he found something interesting and kept an ear to the world of radio broadcasting. Years later when the time finally came to get it together and head off to college, Mike choose the world of Television production from his experience of Rogers television as a technical producer but that would not last as his career choice. A chance encounter with an individual named Steve Saylor changed his future once and for all and the rest they say is History….
