Thank YOU!

We want to send a heartfelt thank you out to all of the people who made this episode and video happen! First, thank you to Producer Craig for always making sure we sound good, and for helping to host the game and keep things moving along! Second, thank you to Paul (aka Operaman) for always being the show’s #1 fan and supporter, and also for taking Liz’s niece out of the room so she wouldn’t be scarred for life!

Next, we of course want to take the ever talented Seale Adams for volunteering his time and abilities to take amazing video, both of this show and our Women in Podcasting panel. You are completely awesome!!

To our Houston-area podcast friends at Cult 45, Dogfin Studios, and Carla Sue Houston for being there to support us, as always! You guys are the best!

Thanks also to the University of Houston – Clear Lake’s The Signal for coming out to cover the event! This is Liz’s alma mater, so finding that they took an interest in our little dog and pony show was a delight! You can read more about that here: https://uhclthesignal.com/wordpress/2018/06/18/a-houston-natives-first-time-at-comicpalooza/

And finally, thank you to ALL of the strangers who came out to play the game with us and for being awesome participants! We couldn’t have done it without you! We were in a tough timeslot, and up against the Star Trek Q&A, so having a packed room was amazing!

xo, Liz and Heather

Fan Fiction

Episode 102 – Fan Fiction

In this episode, Heather is out on assignment, enjoying all of the awesome things California fan conventions offer, so Liz was joined by special guest host Mandy to read some erotic fan fiction! Mandy is the host of CasterQuest, an awesome podcast that covers Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles, Game of Thrones, and does an annual 4th of July fan fiction episode!! We decided to take the plunge into this entertaining and disturbing world!

Trigger Warning: This episode contains erotica and some disturbing mental imagery and is 100% not safe for work or children. You have been warned…

Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap-Up

Episode 101 – Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap Up

In this episode, we briefly try to do our Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap Up, and fail miserably at the “brief” part! There was SO much going on, and we just couldn’t help ourselves!! So listen to us gush about the amazing time we had, all of our awesome panels, our friends, and did we mention the celebrities??

Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap-Up

Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap Up

We not-so-briefly go through each day of the convention and talk about the awesome panels we attended, the panels we hosted, and how much fun it was to finally see each other again since Heather moved away!

There are probably some really long tangents about Harry Potter meet-ups and other things, but the conversation was fun, so we left them in.

Quick Review

  • Thursday – Badge pick up, reuniting with our friends, and grabbing lunch
  • Friday – Matinee Hereos panel, Peter Mayhew (moderated by Brandon from Cult 45), Liz gushing about TALKING to Peter Mayhew, and a lot on our trivia show down game show with Cult 45 podcast. The live stream for that show is available here.

After recording with Shasie, Heather made it to the Cult 45 Podcast live show. Liz was late and missed it since the room was PACKED! As a small consolation, she did get to say hello to (and get a wave and hello in return from) Tom Holland. After that, we had our LIVE show, which you can find here: http://www.nerdybitches.com/episode-100-live-from-comicpalooza-with-cards-against-humanity/http://www.nerdybitches.com/episode-100-live-from-comicpalooza-with-cards-against-humanity/

  • Sunday: We had our Women in Podcasting panel, which we hosted. The panel included Mandy from CasterQuest, Miss Jenny Kelley, and Thirsty from Raging Nerds. It was a great panel, and we are looking forward to seeing the video captured by Seale when it is available!

Women in Podcasting panel

Now, we are exhausted! Heather is going out on assignment for a few weeks to a couple of other conventions. In the meantime, Liz will be joined by guest host Mandy until Heather is back! Look for those episodes coming soon!

 

Thanks again to the team at Comicpalooza for our third time as part of their official podcasting program. We have a great time every year, and this is definitely our favorite convention! We are already looking forward to next year!

100th Episode Live at Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

Episode 100 – LIVE from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

It’s finally here!! In this episode, we are celebrating our 100th episode LIVE from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity!! We also had some very special guests and listeners leave some awesome messages, and you will hear those throughout the live game play. Heather and Liz were back in the same state again, so it only made sense to make this milestone episode something special!

Live at Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

Winner with runners-up

LIVE from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity!

We may have stretched time a little to make this milestone happen when and how it did, but it was totally worth it! Our podcasting room was packed with people sitting along the walls just to watch. A big chunk of the audience played the game WITH us in a tournament-style show down to get to a single winner of our amazing Nerdy Bitches trophy (which is a female body building trophy, in actuality, but the caption on the trophy says it all!). And believe me, they WANTED this trophy. Our reigning champion from 2017 was there to defend his title, even though we told him we wouldn’t take away his trophy.

Who WOULDN’T want this little gem in their trophy case??

The game play was amazing, loud, and a great deal of fun, and we really hope you enjoy. Note: It has been edited to cut out the boring parts while we overexplain the modified rules, people are shuffling cards, and lining up. You are getting the solid action!

Shout Outs!

We put out an invitation via social media for anyone who wanted to send in a congratulations message, and we have included those soundbites and voicemail messages throughout the show. We love these folks and really appreciate them taking the time to send in a message! If they have a podcast, we are linking it below.

We want to extend a HUGE Thank You to everyone who has participated in making this 100th episode amazing!! Thank you to:

  • Producer Craig, for always making us sound like we know what we are doing!
  • OperaMan, for always being a supportive listener and one who provides us with great feedback.
  • Cult45 Podcast for being awesome brothers-in-arms to our show and to Brandon for acting as bouncer during the show when some idiots got a little rowdy!

And a GIGANTIC thank you to Seale Adams for coming all the way in just to film our little dog and pony show!! We cannot wait to share his videographic genius with all of you via our YouTube Channel when it is completed!

R to L: Heather, Seale, Liz  – Live from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

 

Thank you to all of our listeners for allowing us to hit this milestone in our podcasting careers. We are looking forward to many more and have some awesome things in the works, so stick around!!

Rate and Review

We are so grateful for anyone who leave a 5-star rating and review in Apple Podcasts. A word of warning – Apple does not allow “offensive language” in their reviews, so if you mention the name of the show, or bitches or whatever, it will eat the review and we will never know your lovely thoughts. I have found that just typing b*tches is more than sufficient to make it past the censors. We would love to hear from you!

xo,

Liz and Heather

Black Panther

Episode 99 – Black Panther

In this episode, Liz and Heather took a break from Comicpalooza to sit down with blogger and lifestyle guru, Shasie (Shasie’s World) to talk ALL about Black Panther! We will be focusing on the character of Black Panther, not just the stand-alone movie, so we will be discussing Captain America Civil War, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War with SPOILERS all over the place. Also, please excuse the audio. When recording quickly on-the-go, we had a few slip-ups!

Black Panther

Black Panther

Again, SPOILERS! We sat down with Shasie at Comicpalooza to talk all about the character, Black Panther, and will crossover into the different movies he has been in. We jump right on in and talk about all of the crazy things that happen in all of the movies and what is going to happen during the next group of movies that we know are coming.

We love Black Panther. Period. When he pops up in Civil War in the chase of Winter Soldier, we were surprised and excited. We talk about villians, and how well Marvel is doing at bringing in villians who you can somewhat relate to and can feel (especially Killmonger).

We do jump around to talk about some of the rest of the MCU and had a great time.

Classic Movie Review: Hook

We chose Hook as one of the options for our poll based on our favorite character from the movie, Dante Basco, attending the convention this year! You may remember him better as, “RUFIO! RUFIO! ROOF-EEE-OOOOO!” This may come up again 😉

Listen in to our point-by-point review to see if this classic from our teenage years really holds up over time. Also, learn why Tink is clearly the REAL villian of Neverland, and why naming a kid Thud Butt could have life-long consequences and strategic advantages.

Tropes and Cliches

Episode 94 – Tropes and Cliches

In this episode, Heather and Liz explore popular Tropes and Cliches used in movies, tv, and literature. Seen it over and over? So have we.

Tropes and Cliches

Tropes and Cliches

We wanted to talk about the difference between a trope and a cliche, because we see the same things over and over in TV and movies, especially with the advent of binge watching due to streaming services, DVRs, and on-demand options.

Examples:

  • Boy meets girl/loses girl/gets girl back
  • Will they/won’t they/ of course they will

Some of our discussion:

  • Action stars will fight their way through 2,000 henchmen to get to the big bad, but won’t kill him because he doesn’t want to be “just as bad as him.’
  • To change your life and everything about you, all you need is a makeover!
  • Scientists have to say things deliberately complicated so that someone else can make the statement, “In English, please!”
  • Every ensemble needs an idiot. [See potential scavenger hunt for Comicpalooza]
  • “We need to talk.”
  • It always rains at funerals.
  • Underdog will always win.
  • Badass female character must be perfect AND a physical badass.

In Dungeons & Dragons Campaign: Finding Stellan Skarsgård, after manually wooing some wolves and bringing them into our party, the gang heads deeper into Cragmaw Cave in search of Stellan Skarsgård. This is the second part of our previous adventure. In this campaign, we are working our way through the 5th Edition Starter Set with Operaman as our DM.

Dungeons & Dragons: Finding Stellan Skardård

After the party entered the cave, and Basha the Tusky jerked off three wolves and gained their loyalty, the gang took the pack with them deeper into Cragmaw Cave in search of the human who may know the location of the map to the castle and Wave Echo Cave (we have named him Stellan Skarsgård because we cannot remember his real name).

As we delve further, we come to a crossroads and find our first adventure lurking quietly under the bridge…

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.
