The Dan Cave
Deep within the underground network of caverns beneath Nerdist HQ is a special place where pop culture, passion, and groanworthy puns collide: THE DAN CAVE. Each week, your host, Dan Casey, will use his expert knowledge of pop culture, amiable demeanor, incredible sense of humor, unrivaled handsomeness, and tremendous modesty to take you on a deep dive into the worlds of cinema, prestige television, comic books, and much more. As Uncle Ben once said, with great power comes great responsibility, and Dan feels a great responsibility to give you an insider’s perspective of the expansive, often daunting world of pop culture. You know, like a nerdier Jules Verne. From putting breaking news stories under the microscope (What does Harrison Ford’s broken leg mean for Star Wars?) to sounding off on burning nerd questions (What’s really going on with the DC Cinematic Universe?) to curating some of the best pieces of pop culture ephemera the Internet has to offer (have you seen the slow-mo BMX prom scene from Rad?), Dan will be your spirit guide through the wide world of nerdiness, offering up a little something for everyone and plenty of laughs along the way.
