And welcome back to DUEL OF TAINTS!

We return from our short hiatus to find the guys joined by a very special guest, Lee Parra. Lee enlightens our hosts with his dazzling understanding of science and unique insights into Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Also Kane and Rett shed some light on their exploits as a band back when they were touring as The Monster Addict, and regale Lee with a funny story about a time they slept with their shoes on!

Its Duel of Taints! Episode 7!
You heard it first at Awesome! Internet Radio


NDBrothers Episode 4

We apologize to the great many inconvenienced by our late posting of this weeks episode of NDBrothers.

In this weeks edition the brothnerds discuss the epic Civilizations 5, Magic the Gathering, adventuring in the public matchmaking world of DOTA2, and the positive affects of video games.

Jason and Rett were unable to get together in person this week, so they used to skype to record. You can taste how easily distracted they can get… plus it was so late. they were absolutely tired after a long day of work AND school.

But we know you love it!

It’s NDBrothers! Enjoy.








This week Kane and Rett delve more deeply into a topic brought up in last weeks episode and discuss movies the audience loved but the critics hated. They tangent off on many topics, arguing over whether invisibility or flying would be the better super power. And somewhere along the way one of them claims James Bond is gay…

Get it all here on this weeks episode of Duel of Taints: Penetrator 2 Judgment Day

NDBrothers 3

In this weeks episode, the Brothnerds discuss Jim Butcher’s newly released Dresden Files feature – Skin Game.

They discuss The Dresden Files in general. Rett’s mouth waters a little bit while he wets his geek appetites talking about the things past, and the things to come.  Things are truly starting to heat up with this 15th installment in the series. Dresden always finds himself in a tight pinch, but he always finds a way out! And this time is no different! FUEGO!

Also the Brothnerds bash on Final Fantasy 13 a bit (with love) and talk about Final Fantasy in general.

Episode 5 of Duel of Taints features Kane and Rett in a bout of fisticuffs.

Not exactly. But they do have to think on their feet and yell over each other while special guests for a live recording shout questions at them and forget just who’s show this is.

They discuss life’s most important questions-                                                                                 Who is the best sidekick of all time? What is the most over-rated movie of all time? And just how secret are our reptilian overlords?

The special guests may be hard to hear, but we are sure you are sharp enough to follow along anyways.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the show being released a day late, and any inconvenience caused by the inconsistency in sound quality as our techs figure out the best configurations to produce the highest quality of sound.

NDBrothers Episode 2


In this weeks episode of NDBrothers the two brothnerds talk about Jason’s thoughts on season 1 of Arrow and all the fun things to happen on the latest episode of Game of Thrones, as well as the new rendition of Godzilla and the many video game appearances of Godzilla.

And Rett tells Jason how much he hates stupid battle scenes in movies that really don’t need stupid battle scenes. Doesn’t everyone hate stupid battle scenes?

They’re brothers. They’re nerds. They’re brothnerds.


check back next week while Jason and Rett get caught up during lunch at the office.

We humbly bring you episode 4 of your favorite podcast that makes your ears bleed. 4 weeks means that we’ve almost been doing this thing for a month. Not long by any stretch of the imagination. But it’s hard in today’s world to commit to anything for a month, let alone recording silly podcasts and sharing them on our own little corner of the interwebz.

It might not sound like much to you. But it means a lot to us. And we hope you can enjoy this fun rapid fire debate session between Kane and Rett that runs the gamut from “Alien vs. Predator” all the way to one of the ultimate duels among nerds: “Indiana Jones vs. Han Solo”.

There are ten topics total hand picked from the email submissions, tweets, and facebook posts. There were plenty of great topics, and we always love feedback and ideas, but we couldn’t pick them all. That doesn’t necessarily mean we will never get to those ideas. These simply were the best for this week.

Thanks again for listening.

And as always you can email us any questions, comments, ideas for debates, or simply an encouraging word (or discouraging word) to our email address

Thanks to all those who emailed us to let us know the average life expectancy of a Gungan. We of course already knew… we know everything. But know maybe you can tell us how old Jar Jar Binks is when first introduced.

NDBrothers Episode 1


We have finally brought you a show other than that one you hate… what’s it called… Duel of Taints or something? Yeah this is not that one.

This is one you hopefully like more than that one. NDBrothers is two brothers, stuffing their mouths with their lunch, while talking the latest nerd news. TV, books, movies, video games, comics, even music cannot escape their scrutiny. They’re full of opinions and usually wrong. But that doesn’t stop Jason or Rett from being passionate about what they love.

This show is made by regular guys who just want to share some regular talk.

They’re brothers. They’re nerds. They’re brothnerds.

(or at least I think that’s where they got it….)


Check back every Wednesday for a new episode of NDBrothers. And don’t forget to check out the other podcasts from Awesome! Internet Radio at airpodcast.com

In this weeks episode Kane and Rett step into the world of DC Comics and Batman. Who is Batman’s greatest villian (as seen in the Nolan films…)? It’s quite a debate, and all over the board while your hosts tickle your ear drums with useless, unchecked (probably wrong) facts  that you never knew you needed to know!

It’s episode 3 of Duel of Taints!


The second episode of Duel of Taints, in which Kane and Rett take a trip to Westeros and talk about the purple wedding, the prince who was promised, and the dragon with three heads.

This episode was originally recorded as a bonus to the first. But with an hour of content we thought it could stand on its own. There isn’t much of a duel this time around. But we talk in depth about the Game of Thrones, and whatever else floats our fancy.

I’m usually not much of a stickler for spoilers, but there have been a few of you who have emailed in and requested to have a list of spoilers at the very least. And since you all did it so nicely, here is cheat sheet. Albeit not as tight as I could be.
For the most part there is a lot of speculation in this episode                                                       1) up until about 11:00 is spoiler free if you have watched all available GoT episodes.

2)11:15-11:30 contains knowledge that might upset some people. Personally I don’t consider it a spoiler. But I suppose some of you do. However after 11:30 We go into detail of Sansa’s exodus from Kings Landing as described in the book. Again if you are caught up, it’s not a problem. S04 E05 should be sufficient.

3) 13:30 – 13:45 contains the same bit of above spoiler info. Again, I don’t consider it spoiler. But I’m playing nice.

4) After 13:45 it goes back to being spoiler free as long as you are caught up. We discuss the trial at length.

5) 15:50 – 17:15 (if you want to be safe) Spoilers, I guess… we discuss scenes that will happen by the end of season 4.

6) 18:15-19:45 we discuss the competitors of Tyrion’s upcoming trial by combat and the motivations of said competitors. I don’t consider this spoilers either. But I suppose if you like surprises…

From here we go into some serious speculation on the prophecies presented in the stories and talk at some length of events that back these speculations.

7) 29:25 SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS. This is spoilers. It’s in the interest of speculation. But we discuss the last page, of the latest book. Fast forward to 30:45 to avoid spoiling the shit out of yourself.

Well done.
You have now safely avoided all Game of Thrones related spoilers.


Now enjoy the rest of the episode as we explore just how far one tangent can go.

Bonus points to whoever can tell us with certainty the average life expectancy of a Gungan.



And that’s all we have for now!

Tune in next week where we’ll discuss Batman in the Nolanverse.
