If you consider yourself a nerd, you’ve probably asked the question “Who would win?” at some point in your life. Whether you’re asking about Batman vs. Captain America or Luke Skywalker vs. Harry Potter, we’re betting you have an opinion and could argue it well.

We all tend to think that celebrities have a perfect life full of fame and perks. However, that's not always the case. You may know Stephanie Nadolny as the voice of Gohan and Kid Goku on Dragon Ball Z.

Listen as she tells her story and shares how she changed her life for the better.
Do you ever look back on the movies you watched as a kid and think, "How was THAT appropriate for my childhood?" Maybe these disturbing children's shows and movies have contributed to our childhood trauma. Or maybe we are more disturbed by them as adults than we ever noticed as kids because we were so into the action.
FTN contributors Jeff McGee, Darth Taxus, and Regina Davis join Scott to discuss these movies and shows. The group examines some scary, dark, and disturbing themes and how they might not have truly been appropriate for children.
The discussion includes Cloak & Dagger, The Goonies, The Wizard of Oz, The NeverEnding Story, the Muppet movies and more.
Jeff and Regina are co-hosts on a podcast called The Pilot Episode where they watch and review the first episode of different TV shows.
Jeff also co-hosts Star Wars Splash Page where he and Matt Moore discuss that week’s Star Wars Comics. Both podcasts can be found on Marvin Dog Media.
Regina also co-hosts Comic Book Noob with Scott Murray and Matt Moore.
Darth Taxus is currently playing country and western music with Gene Tobin around Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
We were all devastated to hear the news of Chadwick Boseman's passing in August of last year. He was a wonderful actor who was loved my many, and most people didn’t even know he was fighting a battle with cancer.
Chadwick was also very dear to the nerd community because of his portrayal of the beloved King T'Challa or Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The film, Wakanda Forever, will be in Phase 4 of the MCU, and Disney has announced they will not recast the role. Today, Scott discusses if that's a good or a bad idea with FTN contributors Tiffany Ojeda, Mia Dallas, Matt Moore, and Jared J. Lee.
Listen to this fantastic discussion as you anticipate heading back to the theaters and getting back into the MCU.

Thanos snaps his fingers and takes out all but one of Corey Feldman's movies. Which one do you save?
What recent movie would fit perfectly into the 80s movie library?
If you could go back in infuse modern CGI/effects into an 80s movie, which would it be?

When we think of love and Star Wars, most people probably think of Han and Leia and their iconic line, "I love you, I know."
Or maybe they think of Anakin and Padme's tortured love story. However, we can learn so much more about all types of relationships from the Star Wars movies, shows and extended universe.
Today's guest, Amy Richau, wrote a book about those relationships. Listen as she and Scott discuss some lessons we can learn from a few Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Rey, Finn, Galen Erso and Agent Kallus.
Also, be sure to check out Amy's new book Star Wars I Love You, I Know: Lessons in Love and Friendship.
