Episode 188: We Do Need Some Edutainment
Edutainment: Enjoyable past time, a waste of time or just a horrible word? We explore the world of edutainment plus the week in news, on an all-new episode!
We love these new Venom Variants
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we kick things off in comics where Venom is taking over the Marvel universe in March. Over in IDW world, we talk about their new “DEVIATIONS” line (Judge Dread werewolf…what?!) and close things out in level one with news about the upcoming YOUNG JUSTICE series and what you need to do to get more YOUNG JUSTICE in your lives.
Heading into level two, NINTENDO has released SUPER MARIO RUN and with over 10 million downloads it seems we have another NINTENDO hit on our hands…or do we? Lash and Tony try and get their final DESTINY talk of the year out of the way and we dive into the metrics of backwards compatibility on the Xbox One – which we promise is way more interesting than it sounds.
Over in the world of entertainment, the reboot we never knew we wanted – DUCKTAILS has been announced and Tony freaks out over the casting. DC ENTERTAINMENT takes over the latter half of entertainment news with topics ranging from the upcoming GOTHAM CITY SIRENS to what is new in the world of THE BATMAN.
Our epilogue this week is about Edutainment – from concepts to implementation…for better or worse. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
