The Marvel Cinematic Universe Tier List

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Tier List

May 9, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 31 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, our intrepid superheroes take on a gargantuan task - assigning all (well... nearly all) Marvel films to tiers. Of course, we've designed appropriate tiers for the task: top tier, pleasantly surprised, classic superhero average, immensely boring, actually bad, could have been made by DC. Let us know if you agree!

In our next episode, Vib is gracing the world with another Hot Take, this time explaining in what will almost certainly be excruciating (for Sean) detail how there are absolutely no good Star Wars films. No way that goes wrong... Join us then for more nonsense.

Why Player Choice is Ruining TTRPGs

Why Player Choice is Ruining TTRPGs

April 25, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 30 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, Sean's going fully off the deep end. Taking issue with recent changes to the rules of Dungeons & Dragons, he asserts blithely that "kids today are ruining everything". Vib attempts to talk down this crazy old man, and together our heroes try to get to the bottom of something pernicious at the heart of all modern culture. They fail, obviously...

In our next episode, we retreat to far safer ground, when we'll be providing a complete tier list for every single MCU film. Every. Single. One... Join us then for more nonsense.

Dresden Files - Who is the English man on Demonreach?

Dresden Files - Who is the English man on Demonreach?

April 11, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 29 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

This week, we return to our favourite Chicago wizard and discuss his hijinks as the Warden of Demonreach. Importantly, we definitely answer the hottest question on the internet: who is the English man imprisoned on the island? Our answer is of course indisputable. In no way does this episode descend into petty name calling and mud throwing. Nope. Not even a little...

In our next episode, we plan on finally getting cancelled once and for all as we discuss how table-top RPGs are changing and why it's bad for everyone. Join us then for more nonsense.

Our favourite Legendary Lords in Total War Warhammer 2

Our favourite Legendary Lords in Total War Warhammer 2

March 28, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 28 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

This week, in the wake of the recent (ish) launch of Total War Warhammer 3, Vib and Sean discuss their favourite legendary (ie playable) lords from Warhammer 2!

In our next episode, we return to the Dresdenverse where we ask one of the most scintillating questions on everyone's mind. Who is the English man on Demonreach? There's only one right answer, but which one of us will be giving it? Join us then for more nonsense.

Is Amazon’s The Wheel of Time Any Good?

Is Amazon’s The Wheel of Time Any Good?

March 14, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 27 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

This week, Vib and Sean talk through Amazon's latest attempt to make "the greatest fantasy TV show ever", the Wheel of Time. Who is the Dragon reborn? Where do the Trollocs come from? Why is Lord Aglemar a chump? Find out the answers to all these questions and more. Also, we rate the show. It's... fine.

In our next episode, in a vain attempt to tap into the ebbs and flows of pop culture, we seize on Creative Assembly's release of Total War Warhammer 3 by discussing our favourite Lords and Heroes from Total War Warhammer... 2... Join us then for more nonsense.

You wake up as… Joffrey Baratheon

You wake up as… Joffrey Baratheon

February 28, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 26 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

This is the first episode in our new segment: "You wake up as" where we discuss what we would do if we wake up as fictional or historical characters at a certain point in their lives. Today, we wake up as the much maligned Joffrey Baratheon just after the atrocity of the Red Wedding. Our task: survive. Can we do it? Almost certainly not. Will we make stupid suggestions? Almost certainly.

In our next episode, in 2 weeks' time, we're talking Wheel of Time. Vib, as one might expect, has not read the books but has strong opinions on the TV show. Sean, as one might expect, has read the books and has arguably stronger opinions on the TV show. Can they find common ground? Find out then!

The Great Tinfoil Debate

The Great Tinfoil Debate

February 14, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 25 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

This is a very special episode where we revisit our past episodes and really figure out who has said the most stupid thing and what on earth we were thinking... We're taking a look back at some of our, and your, favourite moments, for which, if we're honest, we're really, really sorry. 

In our next episode, in 2 weeks' time, we're debuting our first ever episode in our "You wake up as..." series as we figure out what we would do to survive as Joffrey Baratheon in the lead up to the Purple Wedding.

Who is Tom Bombadil?

Who is Tom Bombadil?

January 31, 2022

Hello, and welcome to Episode 24 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

We're BACK! And with a bang, if we do say so ourselves. Tom Bombadil. Merry fellow. Master. Strong singer, fast of feet. But, who is he? Or, rather, what is he? One of the Ainur? The personification of music? C. S. Lewis? Join us as we work out the answers.

In our next episode, in 2 weeks' time, we're looking through our back catalogue of tinfoil hat awards, asking which were the most unfairly given, and why. No way that goes wrong...

What are the worst vampires in the Dresden Files?

What are the worst vampires in the Dresden Files?

September 20, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 23 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, we're back in deepest darkest Chicago, asking what are the worst vampires in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files? How bad would it be to meet a Black Court vampire down a dark alley? How in trouble are we that the White Court own politicians in Washington? And just rubbish at vampiring are the Red Court. 

We're taking a short break to account for the fact that one of the co-hosts is both moving house and having a baby at basically the same time, but whenever we're able to, our next episode will answer all the questions about Tom Bombadil from the Lord of the Rings that you didn't know you needed the answers to.

Hot Take: The End Times was both good and necessary

Hot Take: The End Times was both good and necessary

September 13, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 22 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

 

Today, it's time for another hot take! Sean takes centre stage in a foolish attempt to convince us that the End Times that brought about the demise of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and kickstarted Age of Sigmar was falsely maligned and in fact served its purpose extremely well. 

 

Next time, we return to a more familiar world, that of our favourite Chicagoan wizard Harry Dresden. We will ask the all important question: which kind vampire is the worst (best...)?
