Harrison Ford had his 76th birthday recently and Nerd Nuptial wanted to celebrate.
Ford was a big influence on both Tristan and The Girl's pop culture lives as well as media tastes. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jack Ryan, Blade Runner, just to name a few. The man owned the box office in the 80s. This week they discuss how they grew up on his movies and what his performances mean to them.
They start the show talking about Sharp Objects, It (2017), and A Quiet Place.
We think every nerd can relate to this moment of getting called out.
We discuss our experience seeing the Chicago Symphony Orchestra play Star Wars: A New Hope Live
This week Tristan and The Girl share their experience with seeing Star Wars with a live orchestra for the first time. Tristan fooled The Girl into thinking they were going to a work cocktail party and she was pleasantly surprised.
They start the show with listener mail/reviews and discuss how the nerd community brings us together and exposes us to issues we wouldn't otherwise see.
What is the media you HAVE to have before you switch over to Airplane Mode?
After taking two weeks off, Nerd Nuptial is back on the airwaves. Tristan was traveling and that screwed up the schedule. However, that did get both of them thinking about what you keep in your nerd wallet on an airplane.
As we all know, you have to have your devices in Airplane Mode while in the air. So that means you have to download your books, movies, comics, music, and TV BEFORE that happens. Tristan and The Girl discuss what are the musts before a flight.
What do you always have on you when you fly?
We do another "AMA" and talk desert island movies, favorite books, and marriage challenges
This is our one-hundrenth episode! We are so excited to bring you this episode, not only because our listeners are fantastic and made this possible, but because we also get to answer your questions.
This is our second "Ask Me Anything" session. You submitted the questions and we answered. We talk about many things including how life has changed now that we're parents, what our "nerd-cation" would be, and what challenges our marriage has faced.
We start the episode with our reactions to Arrested Development Season 5 and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 4.
