Gene and Siike return for what might be their farewell to BlogTalkRadio. It's be a very nerdy few years, but with the show evolving into a new format, with new segements, topics, and more, it makes sense for the boys to bid farewell to the network that gave them their first home and explore the land of the unknown. On this final episode, Gene and Siike talk about their current and past projects, as well as give a glimpse into what their futures hold. After years of selling, buying, reading, trading, and talking about comic books, Gene Hoyle is launching his first book as a creator, and you can help bring that vision to life by pledging to his Kickstarter, GATEWAY RUNNERS. Get the details on GATEWAY RUNNERS and everything else Nerd Nation right now! Tune in, nerd out!

The Nerd Nation Embassadors will also talk about the pros and cons of comic companies doing "event books" while also publishing books that feel like events themselves. It's Marvel's Infinity and DC's Forever Evil vs Superior Spider-Man and Batman: Year Zero. A new segment is introduced, the Deuce returns, and maybe, just maybe, Siike & Gene will get to the topic they've tried for two episodes to talk about; the summer movies of 2015. It's more nerdiness than you can shake a Tardis-shaped stick at. Tune in, nerd out!
In July of 2013, the hallowed halls of the NERD NATION were locked up, possibly never to be opened again. Gene & Siike were forced on separate paths, both working their dream jobs in the world of comics, no longer having time for such childish fun. The disconnection from the thousands of friends that downloaded each episode, tuning in and nerding out each and every week, began to eat away at the two embassadors' very souls. Luckily, the paths they were on had once again converged, uniting the two fanboys near the halls of their beloved island city. This is the NERD NATION! All walks of nerd life are welcome and encouraged to take shelter within these city walls. Every week, discourse over different parts of nerd culture are discussed, celebrating the things that we all love that make each of us unique. Tonight, the embassadors will talk about THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER SMITTY, what comics, movies, television, and music Gene & Siike came across during their time apart, the upcoming Dr. Who 50th anniversary event, and a brave young man named Miles Scott, who saved Gotham City today from The Penguin & Riddler as the watchful guardian known as BAT-KID! Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and every great hero reminds us there's a hero inside us all. If you've never listened to an episode before, this is a great place to begin. As we say in the NERD NATION... tune in, nerd out!
