The Nerds continue their discussion about the new Rogue One trailer, including some listener feedback in the new "Force Tweets" segment. They also list other films that required massive reshoots but still turned out awesome, and they freak out a bit over the trailer/short film for the upcoming Old Republic video game.
Dan & Kenton take a few minutes out of their busy schedule to react to the COMPLETELY AWESOME Rogue One trailer that dropped on Thursday.
Kenton gets an iPhone 7, Dan meets with a bunch of radio broadcasters, and newspapers still claim that it's business as usual, nothing to see here.
Kenton tells his harrowing and suspenseful tale of being one of the first in line for the new Rogue One toys (even getting some a little early!) Is the Star Wars toy release day as big of a deal as it once was? Plus, Dan has troubles recording Rebels...again.
Dan & Kenton talk Emmy winners & losers, and tee up the new crop of fall TV shows in true Media Nerds fashion - by tearing them apart.
Dan & Kenton discuss the change in music composers for Rogue One, and what that could mean for the film. Can music make or break a film? Plus, Season 3 of Star Wars: Rebels starts this weekend and next week is Force Friday!
Dan gets fired up about recent changes to the local radio landscape and lays out his plan to save local media.
The Nerds cover some Star Wars news, including some SPOILER-Y images of Darth Vader (really?) in Rogue One. They also throw a few more potential Episode VIII titles out there and talk about what it would really take to kill the Star Wars franchise.
Dan & Kenton break down this week's iPhone 7 announcement. As well, they discuss the death of Canadian journalism and Canadian Cable TV.

The Nerds remember the late, great Kenny Baker, who embodied the spirit of R2-D2 and passed away on August 13, 2016.
As well, some interesting speculation comes out of the Question of the Week (new segment!) Dan and Kenton try to hash out what exactly happened between Luke and Kylo Ren in the events leading up to The Force Awakens.
The Nerds finally tackle Trump this week: How did he become so popular? Who supports Trump? Will he drop out or see the U.S. election through to the bitter end? More importantly: how did it come to this?
