"The Atomic Weeks" continues with guest Atomic Geeks podcaster Christian Nielsen! After the wackiest opening we've ever done for the show, we get into a discussion about our favorite late night talk shows. We cover all the greats including Johnny Carson, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien. We also cover some of the not-so greats like Pat Sajak, Chevy Chase and Jay Leno. And, find out which one of us had a letter read on Late Night with David Letterman and which two of us attended tapings of Late Night with Conan O'Brien!

Special thanks to Rob Graham for his invaluable help on this episode!

Week 2 of Nerd Lunch's Atomic Weeks celebration.  This week we are joined by Mike Downs to discuss movie toys.  More specifically we are creating our own movie toy lines for some of our favorite movies that never got toys.  Expect to see things like The Rocketeer, The Cosby Show franchise and From Dusk till Dawn.

It's another set of theme shows for Nerd Lunch as we begin "The Atomic Weeks!" We celebrate along with The Atomic Geeks as they surpass their five-year mark by having each of them as a guest on our show. First up, former Geek, Andrew Bloom (now of Classic Film Jerks) joins us to discuss the Nerd Lunch take on Lent. We are each tasked to come up with something we'd give up from the "nerd" and "lunch" arenas. Besides tomatoes, what could we possibly live without for 40 days?! Nerd To-Dos feature books, Burn Notice and talk of a Nerd Lunch trip.

What better way to pass time during an evening in Atlanta, Georgia than watching a Dukes of Hazzard Double Feature? CT and Jeeg did just that on their recent trip to Georgia and present to you this podcast/warning. First up, discussion about the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie starring Johnny Knoxville, Sean William Scott, Jessica Simpson, Burt Reynolds, and Willie Nelson. Then, a discussion about the direct-to-DVD pseudo-prequel starring a bunch of nobodies and Willie Nelson. 

The Dukes of Hazzard/The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning

In this week's Nerd Lunch, we return to one of our favorite franchise topics... FAN FIC REVIEWS! Thrice before we've done this topic (18, 62, 95) and each time we've had a blast. For our fourth foray into fanfic (suddenly this has turned into narration from the Batman TV show…sheesh), we do something a bit special so be sure to listen to find out our approach this time. Our guests were the returning Claymation Werewolf and Miss M from the Diary of a Dorkette blog. Nerd To-Dos included Mad Max, being a nerd, buying She-Ra action figures and Burn Notice.
