Hard NOC Life: The Pandemic Paradox

For the fourth week in a row, Dominic and Keith continue to discuss COVID-19’s effect on the nerd pop landscape.

Movie theaters are closing, the Olympics have been cancelled, and people across the country are being ordered to shelter at home. Pop culture may seem inessential in a time like this, but the arts is what keeps people going. To that end, the hosts contend with the future of On-Demand entertainment and what that will mean once the theaters open up again. Dominic continues his quest to convince Disney to release Mulan on streaming platforms. Keith shares what it was like to livetweet Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn three days in a row. What’s #NerdPoppin during quarantine: for Dominic, it’s how effective Ant-Man’s powers would be in an outbreak (plus the relevance of Paul Rudd’s house arrest scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp). For Keith, it’s Hasbro’s just-released Deluxe Snake Eyes 6-inch action figure.
