In this episode of Nerd Lunch, the Lunchers welcome first time guest Nick from On Second Scoop. It's uncertain if Dubba let Nick out of his ice cream cage or if Nick snuck out, either way, it's a good time as the crew comes up with fictional foods based on pop culture properties. TMNT, Lizzie McGuire, Kool-Aid, Twizzlers, and more are all discussed. Nerd To-Dos feature Image Comics, Muppets Most Wanted and another installment of "Lorenzo Watch 2014."

Pax and Jeeg are joined by Carlin from the Pod James Pod Podcast and Jay from Sexy Armpit for a nerdy discussion I like to call Poor Man's Podcast.  We all discuss the phrase 'X is a poor man's Y' where we fill in X and Y with our own ideas.  We also take turns assigning another member of the podcast part of the poor man's equation.  It's a lot of fun plus you have to listen to Jay's special Nerd Lunch intro.

This week we're joined by the cohost of the Classic Film Jerks podcast, former Atomic Geek and multiple time Fourth Chair guest, Andrew Bloom. On the docket is an exploration of the special kind of crazy that is best found on the classified site Craigslist. We track down some interesting nerdy collections and posts that are just plain bizarre. Obscure comic books? Collections of VHS tapes? The Fun TV? Junk food promotion items? We've got it all covered. Our Nerd To Dos feature the 2014 Lays Do Us a Flavor contest, Snowpiercer, Guardians of the Galaxy, and another #LorenzoWatch2014 update.
