The Nerd Bliss Podcast As the name suggests, we’re nerds, or geeks if you prefer. That doesn’t restrict our topics to Star Trek and hyperdrives. Have you ever heard anyone referred to as a [insert hobby here]-geek/nerd? For example, sewing geeks, car geeks, tech geeks, etc. We want to talk about, and to, all of them as well as traditional geek fare, such as cosplay, sci-fi, fantasy, science, TV & movies, conventions, and fandom of all stripes. We’re even hoping to eventually hit topics such as lifestyle design, music, voice acting, life hacks, health and fitness, and the proverbial “much, much more”.

  • Episode #114 - Mark McCray - The Best Saturdays of our Lives
    by Four Foot One Media on July 6, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    We had the tremendous privilege to talk with Mark McCray. Mark is a senior programming manager at Adult Swim and the author of the book The Best Saturdays of Our Lives. During the 70's, 80's and 90's, Mark wrote a newsletter that provided commentary and reviews on the various shows that were aired on Saturday mornings, which he sent to some of the biggest names in the cartoon world. The book is a collection of the best of those newsletters as well as memoirs and interviews that any fan of Saturday morning cartoons is sure to love. […]

    by Four Foot One Media on June 13, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    NOTE: This episode does not meet our usual standard for audio quality. Some segments contain mic noise and distortion. We apologize for the low audio quality on what is otherwise a great episode. Right on the heels of Treklanta, Chris & Tina went to ConCarolinas 2019 and talked to many of the artists, authors, and guests including Valentine Wolfe, Mikey Mason, Podcasting's Rich Sigfrit, and Dacre Stoker, great grand nephew of Bram Stoker! Meanwhile, Dan covered the House of Mann Fashion Show at the Spartanburg Fringe Festival! […]

Hear about the much anticipated In Defense of Star Trek: Discovery panel, which Chris and Dan presented at the con. Hear us talk about the amazing people we got to meet. And by the way, this is Dan's first Star Trek convention ever! […]

    by Four Foot One Media on May 29, 2019 at 3:10 am

    This episode was recorded before our trip to Treklanta 2019. By the time you hear this, Treklanta 2019 will have already ended. But, there is still plenty to enjoy about this discussion. We hope we saw you there. […]

  • Episode #108 - Pod People
    by Four Foot One Media on May 22, 2019 at 1:08 am

    The hosts of The NerdBliss Podcast, Thunder Talk, and The History of Comic books shot tequila, ate chicken wings, and discuss emotional intelligence in animals, a Star Wars fanfic, variety shows, and Chevy Chase reportedly being a jerk. Dan and Wheatley remember the movie Follow That Bird. Also...look it kinda goes everywhere, okay? […]

  • Episode #107 - Queens to the Rescue: One Year Later
    by Four Foot One Media on May 16, 2019 at 2:35 am

    Almost a year to the day after their previous appearance on the show, Michelle Shara and Brandon Hilton return to the studio. When we last had them as guests, Queens to the Rescue, a charity drag show that benefits local animal rescues, had not happened yet. QTTR is now about to have their fifth show, with more to come in 2019. Michelle and Brandon tell us about the journey. […]

  • Episode #106 - We're In The Endgame Now. (SPOILERS!!)
    by Four Foot One Media on May 4, 2019 at 5:24 pm

    You knew we'd dedicate an episode to Avengers: Endgame, right? And with the spoiler frenzy surrounding this movie, you can bet your ass we're not revealing anything in this paragraph. But in case we haven't beaten you over the head with this enough, this episode contains spoilers. Repeat. This episode spoils Avengers: Endgame. That means if you listen to this episode before seeing Avengers: Endgame, you will learn things about the movie you might not have wanted to know going in. To put it another way, spoilers for Avengers: Endgame are in this episode. Have we made ourselves clear? […]

  • Episode #105 - Easter Sunday 2019
    by Four Foot One Media on April 27, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    He is risen, from his bed on Easter Sunday morning, that is. Dan then drove his sleepy, atheist ass to Four Foot One Studios to share with us his thoughts on, and experiences with, Easter Sunday. You might think you have an idea of what he'll say, but you might be surprised. This episode has a more serious tone than our usual fare. We'll be back to our usual geeky tomfoolery next week. […]

  • Episode #104 - The Rise of The Black Hole
    by Four Foot One Media on April 17, 2019 at 11:12 pm

    With the newly published pictures of the M87 black hole (known as Pōwehi) the whole internet became fascinated with the phenomenon and the science of its existence. We owe a lot of thanks to the work of Katie Bouman and her team. What better way to commemorate than to...talk about Star Wars Episode IX trailer! OMG, did you see it! Lando in the Falcon! And the Emperor's return! Oh yeah, and we also watched the movie The Black Hole. […]

  • The NerdBliss Podcast - Episode #103 - Discovery Doubles Down
    by Four Foot One Media on April 13, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    Star Trek: Discovery's thirteenth episode of the second season gave us its interpretation of the U.S.S. Enterprise bridge for the first time. Once again "fans" of Star Trek lost their collective minds, crying blasphemy at the modern redesign of the classic ship. Chris, once again, had to be talked down from the ledge of Star Trek fandom. We dive deep into why Discovery is in the best tradition of Trek. […]

  • Episode #102 - Patton Oswalt, A Giant Woman...AND STEVEN!
    by Four Foot One Media on April 6, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    Adam Whetston guest hosts in this episode, and you get to hear how we plan an April Fools joke. We actually recorded this BEFORE we recorded the April Fools recording, but we knew it would go out after the joke. Hilarity ensues. Tina and Chris talk about going to see Patton Oswalt at The Peace Center in Greenville, SC. and discuss cloning him. And much to Dan's happiness, Tina and Chris finally started watching Steven Universe! […]

Frankie tells us more about life on the farm as we enjoyed the outdoors on a beautiful March day. […]

  • Episode #98 - Oh, T-Pain, T-Pain!!
    by Four Foot One Media on March 9, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    I was trying to decide what our topic for the week would be. In the background, I was playing Catchy Song from The Lego Movie 2 soundtrack. (It was stuck in my head.) Heath arrives, hears the voice of T-Pain, and lo and behold, we found our topic. As a working musician, Heath has some very strong input on the topic of Auto-tune, and Dan has some strong feedback. We continue the conversation with other gimmicks and popular trends in music. This is one of our best discussions. […]

  • Episode #97 - Marvelous Frozen Rotten Tomatoes
    by Four Foot One Media on March 2, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    Ever since The Last Jedi, movie review site Rotten Tomatoes has been a battleground for disaffected moviegoers who want to strike back at Hollywood for supposedly infusing social justice and feminism into their beloved entertainment. There was a coordinated effort to down-vote Black Panther as much as possible, and now they're at it again with Captain Marvel. Chris, Eric, and Dan discuss this weaponization of Rotten Tomatoes as well as the Frozen II teaser trailer. […]

    by Four Foot One Media on February 22, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Once again, back is the incredible comic animal, Johnathan Wheatley from History of Comic Books Podcast. We begin with a discussion of rumors that Disney is considering a "live-action" remake or sequel of The Nightmare Before Christmas. This leads to Babylon 5 vs Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In the second half of the show, we talk about the end of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Chris and Tina tell how they became Bronies and weirdnesses in MLP canon. […]
