Two long time rivalries come to a head. The crews make hot dogs. Another exciting day in The Challenge.
We meet the Pros and cover the first challenge and first elimination. Did you know Lolo has her own charity? We say goodbye to some champs and pros.
We cover the Reunion of Invasion and find more reasons to hate Nelson and Hunter. We also go over our first piece of hate mail.
It’s finally the finale and we’re here to break it out. We review the final, our favorite contestants, challenges and eliminations of the season. This officially wraps up Season 29 of The Challenge and Season 1 of Challenged. See you all next week for Season 2.
We were out last week, but we make it up to you with this two-fer presenting the last 2 episodes. The Final begins, and as TJ says, it’s no joke. This episode we cover Nelson’s near death experience and Cory’s infinite disappointments.
We finally see the end of the Underdog eliminations and say goodbye to our favorite Underdog. The Champs fight for their last chance to pad out their team bank account. We start our final Champ elimination, but as per usual do not finish it.
We’re out next week, but hang tight for the finale.
We finish the Bananas vs. Darrell elimination, and the Cara Maria vs. Laurel. The lesbian love triangle has been resolved but that doesn’t stop drama in the club. We watch the Challengers jump from inner tube to inner tube, but no eliminations. Next week: The Underdog Bloodbath.
It’s a Champ elimination day, and the crew fights over a rope on a tilting platform to stay alive. A lesbian love triangle shakes up the house. An elimination is cut short and no one is sent home… yet.
Shane betrays his alliance… or does he? Everyone eats and pukes too much curry. People overreact to harmless pranks. All this and more on this episode of Challenged!
It’s Champion elimination day. The Challengers compete on a giant hamster wheel to see who will battle each other in The Fortress. We also go over Season 30 availability calls.
High drama, low action. One elimination, no challenges this week. The Champions have invaded the house and the underdogs are trying to impress.
This week we talk to Shane Landrum of Road Rules and The Challenge fame. We talk about Campus Crawl, Battle of the Sexes, The Inferno and, of course, Invasion of the Champions.
The Champs invade and the Oasis is filled with drama. No elimination this week. This week we break down the newly revealed format for the Challenges and Eliminations.
The Underdogs arrive at camp. Drama overtakes them. We talk drama, the challenge, and the elimination and try to make predictions for the rest of the season.
Bryan, Amanda and Tim sit down to discuss the players in The Challenge Invasion and speculate about format.
Last night, like so many of us at the GeekNerdery, I attended the late showing of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (in ultra realistic ultra 3 ultra D no less) with one Michael James Carlson, one of the fine gentlemen that runs The Awesome 80’s Podcast. Afterwards, we took to Steak N Shake and laid down our thoughts on the movie over steaks and shakes. The bedlam that followed is below for your listening pleasure.
Big thanks to Michael and Glen from Awesome 80’s for letting me back in the Co-Host game!
Hey everyone one! It’s your second favorite ska geek, what’s up? I’ve just finished the first of a three-night Slackers concert. I’m tired as heck, but man, still so excited for tonight and tomorrow! That’s what we do for our nerdery right? Go hard? Three shows, two of them on work nights? Let’s suit up and do this! Not sure how I’m supposed to make it through work on tomorrow, and my wife already has plans to let me sleep in in Saturday, because she knows that 3 days of work and ska is going to wipe me the heck out. Sorry, I don’t usually like to brag, but I’m super excited about these shows!

Just a Drunken Zombie begat Geek Nerdery, Horror Junk begat Drunken Zombie. I think I’m using ‘begat’ properly there in that context.
10 years ago, 2 guys in their 20’s sat down, drank too many beers and discussed horror movies in front of a camera. The movie was then shared via YouTube and as a video podcast. It was popular for it’s time and a ton of fun to make.
As part of our 10-year-anniversary, here’s our very first episode.
The audio episodes were almost lost forever, but I managed to find most of them. If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic like myself and want to hear a hybrid of Horror Junk and Drunken Zombie, check out this episode.
For the others that I managed to recover, go ahead and grab them here.
Hold on tight for another Horror Junk surprise, coming soon.
