The Midnight Drive-In: Deathstalker & Yor Hunter From The Future

We’re taking you back to a time of swords, wizards, and apparently a lot of rape.  It’s Deathstalker and Yor The Hunter From The Future!  Then we also chat about conventions, Bryan’s beef with Marc Singer, The Last Man On Earth, Harry Brown, Blue Ruin, I, Tonya, and The Midnight Man.

Vendettas: Pizzagate

Pizzagate isn’t just a weird alt-right conspiracy theory. It’s also an episode of The Challenge, where Brad comes back as his intense, passionate self and starts a half-million dollar fight over pizza. Was it worth it? We get trivia and a food challenge combined, and a Challenger tries his best to redeem himself and win for his team.

The Midnight Drive-In: Eaten Alive & Motel Hell

Welcome to a long episode.  Why?  Well we start off the show with Noah asking who is the best Muppet and devolve into the politics of gay unions on Sesame Street.  We finally do talk about some Motel Horror with Eaten Alive and Motel Hell.  After that we chat about A Nightmare On Elm Street, Return Of The Living Dead, and some SNL with I Am Chris Farley.  Also a listener email brings a secret about the show to the foreground that not everyone may know.

23min of Politically Charged Ska

About a year ago there was this big gathering in front of the White House. Uh… some things happened, some things that a fair amount of people weren’t exactly happy about. Some people spoke out, some people wrote songs. The first 5 songs on this podcast are some of those songs. Some written as a reaction to the man himself, others to the climate America has started to find itself in. The last 3 songs are also political in nature but don’t have the same target. In particular, the final song is really something we should all keep in mind for the next 3 years.

Vendettas: Banatalie

It’s our goal this time around to make sure our recaps take less time than watching the actual episode. Do we succeed? Hell yes. We always do. We see a pathetic showing of an elimination and get some real-time behind the scenes about the elimination. We also see some of the very worst politicking in the history of The Challenge. We leave on yet another cliffhanger of an Inquisition. Who will the Troika end up sending in?

The Midnight Drive-In: My Mom Is A Werewolf & My Best Friend Is A Vampire

We decide to take a look into what happens when those closest to us turn into monsters.  We check out My Mom Is A Werewolf and My Best Friend Is A Vampire.  Also we talk about completely selling out to the podcast gods, Insidious 4, and Doug talks some Hammer Horror.

CvS: The Final Countdown

Well, we finally made it to the end of Champs vs. Stars. This poor show got lost in the other Challenge mayhem, overlapping the end of Dirty Thirty and the beginning of Vendettas. So far, the Champs have swept the series. Will that continue, or will the Stars actually win something? This also ends our double-coverage of episodes, thankfully.

Vendettas: The Power of Three

What in the world is a troika? And how do you pronouce it? We finally get some details on how this game works, including the troika, the inquisition, and the Ring. But what is the grenade and how is it used? I guess we figure it out eventually.

The Midnight Drive-In: Robot Jox & Robot Wars

It’s the future and in the future we do everything with Robots!  We’re talking about the Charles Band films Robot Jox and Robot Wars!  Also we chat about Black Mirror, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, and Annabelle: Creation.  Thumbs up fist bump!

Graveyard Duck Episode 20 – Ninja Spirit

Well, we are officially out of Christmas spirit, but luckily we’re loaded full of Ninja Spirit. Join us as we kick off the new year with a look at one of the greatest games to ever hit the TurboGrafx 16.

CvS: Sink, Purge, Repeat

Our coverage of Champs vs. Stars has been demoted to a short aftershow in the wake of Vendettas. This week we cover the purge in the swimming challenge and at least some of the Challengers who are on their way to the final next week.

Vendettas: When Worlds Collide

It’s a super-ultra long episode of Challenged to accompany the premiere of Vendettas. We love seeing midlife crisis Brad, as well as the new Challengers from other random shows in the US and UK. We have
to intro a bunch of newbies to this insane game and see how the vets fit into the equation.

CvS: Flagpoles and False Hopes

The Champs are heading for a shutout clean sweep, but can the Stars stop them? Are alliances strong enough to withstand a vote that may not go as intended? This episode is all about strength. Who is the strongest player, but more importantly, the strongest team?

The Midnight Drive-In: Santa’s Slay & Better Watch Out

Merry Christmas!  If you’re reading this then you got super sick of your family and their bullshit and decided to put in your earbuds and be whisked away to The Midnight Drive-In where there are plenty of Ho Ho Ho’s and the eggnog has been swapped out for straight whiskey.  For your Christmas enjoyment we’re talking about two holiday themed movies with Santa’s Slay starring Goooooooldberg, and the new release Better Watch Out.

Also we chat about some other things we watched like How To Build A Time Machine, Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders, get some feedback for The Last Horrorcast, and at the end of the show Noah gets challenged to a bet that is really just a lose/lose situation.

Throwdown for the Cause: Yorkville

Challenged was fortunate enough to meet all the Challengers in Yorkville at the first event for Throwdown for the Cause. In this episode we talk about the event and our experiences in meeting Bananas, Cara Maria, Brad, Kelly Anne, Britni, Derrick, Zach, Jenna and Kyle. The Throwdown tour is coming to a town near you, so we definitely recommend going.

CvS: Playing Me for the Foos

ZACH ATTACK IS BACK. We have a special guest host standing up for Bananas during the conflict with Bananas vs. Wes. The group plays human foosball and of course can’t do anything without major conflicts.

23min of Holiday Ska

Hey GeekNerdery crew! I’m back at it again with 23min of ska and ska/punk in a holiday style for you. I hope all you fellow geeks and nerds all have a happy whatever-the-hell you celebrate and that you enjoy this tiny bit of music. (Also, if a band covers what Patton Oswalt calls the worst Christmas song ever, you just know I’m going to close out the show with that track!)

The Midnight Drive-In: Jack Frost & Jack Frost 2

We’re kicking off the Christmas season with two movies about killer snowmen.  Well really they are one franchise about killer snowmen.  We talk about Jack Frost and Jack Frost 2.  Also Noah tells us how he gets into nerd arguments with strangers, we talk about Super Dark Times, The Punisher, and the news of Disney buying 21st Century Fox.

Interview: Kelly Anne and Britni

We attended the Throwdown for the Cause in Yorkville, Illinois and had the fortune of meeting many Challengers. Unfortunately we had little luck in getting interviews, but Kelly Anne and Britni were nice enough to spend a little time chatting with us. Thank you to Kelly Anne and Britni! We did meet some other Challengers and put a bug in their ears for interviews, so we’ll follow up and try to get more interviews later.
