FTN Blog 12 December 2011

It's that time of year again when we get to put our feet up and enjoy some festive fun. For me, I love nothing more than sitting down with a nice glass of wine to watch Christmas TV.
Whether it be the latest DVD release or some classic British comedy like Only Fools and Horses, the TV listings captivate me as I sit down with a highighter pen and pencil in my planned viewing for December.
All the classics will, ofcourse, be repeated but no matter how many times I watch Santa Clause: The Movie or It's A Wonderful I enjoy them just as much as when I first saw them.
Talking of classic Christmas movies, Marc and I began our top 10 Christmas movie countdown on the radio show last week.
To be honest, when we compiled the list there wasn't much difference in our choices. If you couldn't listen, It's A Wonderful Life, Batman Returns and Scrooged started the countdown. This week we'll reveal another three before unveiling our top four just a few days before December 25. Our choices are sure to cause debate on the Facebook page. Should be fun!!
A quick shout out to anyone out there that may play in a band or have some other cool redeeming talent. Do you fancy teaming up with Following the Nerd? Would you like your music played on our show or podcast? If you're good at impersonations would you like to help record voiceovers for our youtube clips? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, or have some cool ideas of your own, then please contact FTN on Facebook (Following The Nerd), email: and on twitter @nerdfollowing. We'd love to hear from you.
Until next week folks, enjoy your build up to Christmas!

FTN Blog December 4th 2011

It's been a very quiet week for us at Following the Nerd HQ as we continue to recover from our 27 hour radio broadcast for Children in Need.

But fear not, we haven't been idle. As I type this the finishing touches are being put to our brand new website which should be going live in the next week or two.

Brought to life by our great friend Gareth Watson I can promise you all that the new site looks amazing. Easy to navigate and a look that this fresh and new, we have no doubt that everyone who follows us regularly will love it.

Hopefully we'll bring you a more specific launch date when we go back on-air on Thursday (December 8).
Talking of going back on the airwaves, Marc and I are chomping at the bit to get back into the studio to talk all that is going on in the world of nerd. Things ofcourse move so fast this days that big news today will be forgotten about next week.

However, we can tell you that the thought of Harrison Ford in a new Ender's Game adaptation and the newly leaked Prometheus trailer is certainly rocking our boat at the moment... go to our FB page for all these and much, much more...

However that's it for this week folks. Don't forget you can get intouch with us via our Facebook page:, twitter: nerdfollowing and by email at
Until then....
