Our Story

On the air since March of 2014, the Down And Nerdy Podcast started by talking about Spider-Man and comic books in cereal in our first episode.  The show evolved over the years to include reviews, the latest nerd news and even interviews with some of the top talent in the entertainment industry.  We also take our show on the road from time to time, covering conventions around the country, including San Diego Comic-Con!  We hope that you will give us a listen and like what you hear.
