Book Club Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Exciting News!

We are rolling up on our 100th episode, and we would love to have some clips from friends and listeners to include during this episode. You can just send a congratulations, tell us about your favorite moments, or just whatever you would like to say. You can e-mail the audio clip to ContactUs@nerdybitches.com by March 31, 2018!

Book Club Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

We work our way through the second book in the series in detail. We have given up on attempting summaries because we suck at them, so if you need that, check out some other site and come back to us. There are a lot of laughs and a lot of WTF kind of moments where we question the intelligence of Ron and Harry. But, really… what can you expect from a couple of 12 year old kids.

Spoiler Alert – We will be talking in-depth about this book ONLY, but will not be spoiling any future books or movies, as much as we might want to. So, if you haven’t read beyond this book, no worries!

The Disney Empire

Episode 91 – The Disney Empire

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss the Disney empire and their plan for world domination. Or at least box office domination. Settle in for some Red Vines and Reeses Penis!

The Disney Empire

The Disney Empire

Time to bow to our new overlords! We discuss the recent announcement that Disney has acquired part of 20th Century Fox and the franchises it will now own and their implications for the movie industry. We also talk about what this takeover will mean for the future of Netflix, Hulu, and Disney’s proposed streaming service. Is this a good thing? Are we excited? What are the short- and long-term ramifications of this in light of the previous purchases of Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm?

FYI – This episode goes off the rails a bit in the middle.

Recommendation – The Shape of Water (Heather)



Star Wars: Thrawn

Episode 90 – BOOK CLUB – Star Wars: Thrawn

In this Book Club episode, Liz and Heather dive into Star Wars: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn! This beloved extended universe character has been brought back into the Star Wars canon in this book and in the animated series, Rebels.

Star Wars: Thrawn

Star Wars: Thrawn

Welcome to our first book club episode of 2018! We are actually on time (for once), so listen in as we start the new year off right! In this first book, we get the origin story on one of the greatest “villans” of all time (in Star Wars), Grand Admiral Thrawn. This book, unlike others we have read, comes from his perspective, rather than those of our regular Rebellion heroes.

Obviously, the whole book club will be full of spoilers. Duh!!

This story follows Thrawn, Eli Vanto, and (B-story) Ahrinda Pryce and how they have come to be in their positions within the Empire.

The Last Jedi

Episode 88 – The Last Jedi (Spoilers!!!)

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss The Last Jedi and their 3 year anniversary! It’s hard to believe that we have been “on the air” for three years already, but here we are! We are also welcoming another new year.

The Last Jedi

Happy New Year and Happy 3 Year Anniversary to Us!

We have had so much fun over the past three years and cannot wait to see what 2018 holds! We talk a little about our troll who came back out of the woodwork over Christmas. If you want to troll the troll, be our guest.

We also devote a lot of time talking about winter in Houston, because it has been crazy cold here for no good reason. We even had snow this year.

Recommendation: WTForecast app – This is for iPhone users and it is a weather app that gives you snarky commentary to go with your forecast.

Warning: This is a SPOILER-filled episode. Spoilers start around the 13:00 mark. You have been warned. Proceed at your own risk.

The Last Jedi

Liz and Operaman watched the movie the first time on opening night with Mandy from Casterquest, while Heather and Producer Craig missed their original screening due to shitty plumbing and had to hit it on Saturday morning.

Listen in for all of our opinions, fan theories, and where we think the franchise can go from here.

Also, for those who hated the movie, try watching it again.

Nerdy Bitches Book Club

Our next book club episode will be Thrawn by Timothy Zahn! We highly recommend listening to the audio book, as with all Star Wars books.

Episode 87 – #METOO

#METOO: In this episode, we are taking our the trash #METOO style. Listen in as Liz and Heather talk about the current movement in Hollywood, but also what happens to us (and others) all the time as women in this world. We also answer a couple of listener questions on the subject.



This movement, if you aren’t familiar with it, is bringing awareness to the prevalence of sexual harassment or sexual assault. It started with the Harvey Weinstein accusations, but has become so much more. We wanted to talk about this because we are women, we host a podcast, and it is important for us to engage in the discussion.

Heather tells her story of pornography being e-mailed to her by an upper manager in a previous job, where that manager was related to the big boss.

Liz talks a lot about Human Resources and hopefully doesn’t put you to sleep.

Liz goes WAY back to the second grade for her first #metoo incident. We really don’t think about those little things which can have so much impact as we move forward in life.

We answer a couple of awesome listener questions from Bry-Fy Podcast and Home Video Hustle Podcast.

Fair Warning: We definitely get a little passionate on this subject. It’s a conversation that needs to be had.

**We had some technical difficulties with this episode, so we do apologize for that. We didn’t get to talk as much about recycling as we planned.

Sobfest Cinema

Episode 86 – Sobfest Cinema

In this episode, we are settling in to talk about some serious Sobfest Cinema! Listen as we discuss some of our favorite movies that make us just cry our faces off every. single. time, no matter how many times we see them. We have also taken our listeners into account and included their favorite sobfest movies.

Sobfest Cinema

Sobfest Cinema

When we are talking about this, it really isn’t something that accidentally makes us cry and we never watch it again. These are movies that we can’t help but watch even though they make us cry. And sometimes, we watch them because we NEED a good cry!

Heather’s #1: Hatchi (never watch it on a plane)

Liz’s #1: Armageddon

Episode 85 – End of Times

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss the End of Times. The end is near, y’all and we will tell you all about it, and maybe give a few tips on how to survive. Or not.

End of Times

End of Times

With the state of our world, things that once seemed crazy don’t see that crazy anymore. We talk a lot about the state of things, what could happen, and give a few survival tips, whether we actually want to survive or not.

Now that Heather has moved and we will be recording more often, we are trying to bring back our segments.

Bitch of the Week

Homecoming in Texas – Why are the mums so fucking big? And when did asking someone out to a fairly insignificant football game or dance become a grander gesture than proposing marriage?? Here is the picture Liz sent Heather during the recording. I mean WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?? You can’t even see the girl behind it! Plus, let’s make sure we really make the people who didn’t get asked feel extra shitty when those who did need a freaking noose to wear that thing at school all day.

We Heart Houston

Episode 84 – We Heart Houston

In this very special episode, we heart Houston and learn a little about Texas food and the fact that HEATHER IS MOVING AWAY!! Don’t worry, the show WILL go on and will stay awesome. But, before the leaves the great state of Texas, we have to talk about all the things she is going to miss!

We Heart Houston

We Heart Houston

So, Heather finished up her degree back in May, applied for the kickass job of her dreams and got it!! We are so proud of all of her accomplishments! That kickass job will be taking her to California, so while Liz will miss her fiercely, she is getting an incredible opportunity to make her dreams come true!

We took this opportunity to talk all about our home city and the things we love about it – mainly the FOOD! If you have never been to Houston and have a notion of what it is all about, I guarantee you are wrong! So, take a listen to our last in-studio session for a while (she will be back for Comicpalooza in May!) and hopefully no one gets too teary!

Book Club: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Part 2

Book Club: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Part 2

We only made it as far as the Hogwart’s Express in the first part of this episode, so prepare for a world of wonder as Harry enters the wizarding school for the first time, goes to some classes, and plays for the Gryffindor house Quiddach team. Along the way, Harry discovers some shady characters and a plot that could change the course of the wizarding world! Will an 11 year old be able to keep the powers of evil at bay? Duh.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Part 1

Episode 82 – BOOK CLUB: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Part 1

In this week’s episode, it’s time for our Book Club selection: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Part 1! We are going to be going through all seven of the Harry Potter books over the next few months and discussing each book in detail.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Part 1

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Part 1

We had so much to say on this first world building book that we had to split it into two episodes!! We imagine the upcoming books will be much of the same, because we could both probably talk Harry Potter forever! In fact, it was a mutual love for Harry Potter that cemented our friendship in the first place! Harry Potter and scrapbooking.

During this part of the episode, we cover Chapters 1-6, which basically ends with Harry and company getting off the train at Hogwarts, if that tells you how much happens in the beginning of this book! We go through pretty much chapter by chapter here, hitting all of the little details that we probably missed when reading it the first time, but that end up being really important down the line.

In the first third of the book, we meet the Dursleys and learn a tiny bit about who Harry is and why he is important to the wizarding world. We jump forward to right before Harry’s 11th birthday where he learns some shocking news and takes his first leap into a magical world he never knew existed. He visits Diagon Alley and meets some interesting characters in passing.

Making it on to platform 9 3/4, Harry meets the Weasley family and gets all situation for the ride to Hogwarts.

In Part 2, we will go through the rest of the book in detail, so make sure you check in for the next installment!
