Top 10 Warriors in A Song of Ice and Fire

Top 10 Warriors in A Song of Ice and Fire

July 26, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 15 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 in Westeros this week, as Sean and Vib argue about who is the greatest warrior in GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire. Is it Gregor Clegane? Jaime Lannister? Big man Bobby B? Bran...? No, it's not Bran. Definitely not Bran.

Next time, we're branching out to a whole other universe, never before covered by Expertise is Overrated, as we ask whether the Lord Ruler from Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series is a misguided hero, or just a maniacal despot. And no, the answer isn't just "both

Is the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter an insurgency?

Is the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter an insurgency?

July 19, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 14 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 is a very special episode as we welcome Ellie, our first ever guest to the show! Sean has brought in reinforcements to back him up on his view that the Ministry of Magic in the Harry Potter universe is an insurgency, wizards are ethically dubious (at best), and drones are apparently the answer. Oh, and both the hosts get told off for a change!

Next time, we list our personal top 10 warriors in George RR Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire. Who will make the cut?

Who are the Chaos Gods?

Who are the Chaos Gods?

July 12, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 13 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 ask a critical question. Who, or what, are the Chaos gods from Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000. Does Khorne just want a hug? Is Nurgle really a good guy? And what on earth is going on with Khaine?

Next time, things get exciting as we welcome the first ever Expertise is Overrated guest! We'll be joined by Ellie to ask whether or not the Ministry of Magic is an insurgency. Which will be not at all a heated topic...

Hot Take: Lara Raith is a force for good in the Dresden Files

Hot Take: Lara Raith is a force for good in the Dresden Files

July 5, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 12 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.

In this episode, it's Vib's turn to have the Hot Take, as he sits down to explain why Lara Raith, the de facto Queen of the White Court of Vampires in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, is a good person and not the monster we all think she is. It goes about as well as you're imagining. In fact, one has to wonder if Vib has been enthralled (and Sean does... frequently).

Next time, we're back to Games Workshop's Warhammer franchises, providing an Expertise is Overrated style clear and unambiguous explanation of the Chaos gods. Join us then for more nonsense.

Family Trees in the world of JRR Tolkien

Family Trees in the world of JRR Tolkien

June 28, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 11 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.

Join us on yet another voyage across JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth, as we bring laserlike focus to a frequently overlooked question. Just how weird are the family trees? No, seriously, just look at them. Ever wanted to know just how related Aragorn and Arwen are? Whether Feanor was just ultra fertile? If Finwe is the rightful king of Gondor? This is the episode for you? Special credit to http://lotrproject.com/, without which we would have struggled in this episode even more than we did, go check them out.

Next time, it's time for another Hot Take, as we ask "Is Lara Raith a good person". Join us then for more nonsense!

Early Access Video Games - Good or Bad?

Early Access Video Games - Good or Bad?

June 21, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 10 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.

In our landmark 10th episode, we ask a burning question at the heart of the video game industry. Is Early Access good for the videogames industry? With the rise of Early Access as a way to bring games to market, alongside paid betas, now feels like a good time to drill down into the impact that it’s having on an industry we both care about.

Next time, we dive back into JRR Tolkien’s magnum opus, Middle Earth, and investigate just how weird family trees can get when you start adding immortality into the mix.

A Question of Worth: Who can lift Mjolnir

A Question of Worth: Who can lift Mjolnir

June 14, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 9 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 time, we strain ourselves analysing the Marvel Cinematic Universe, asking specifically who can lift Thor's mighty hammer, Mjolnir, and why. In the telling, we drift leisurely through the full spectrum of MCU films, complain about how bad the Dark World was, and question if Odin has any clue what he's doing. 

Next time, we step away from fiction to ask a wider question: whether Early Access is good for the video game industry. Join us then!

Wizards in Harry Potter hide because gun beats stick

Wizards in Harry Potter hide because gun beats stick

June 7, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 8 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.

In this episode, Vib and Sean ask why, given the fact that they're, you know, magic, wizards in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series hide from muggle view, rather than practicing magic in the open. It's a slightly thorny question, but our heroes navigate it with their usual deft skill and limitless tact.

Next time, things get quite weighty as we tackle Mjolnir, Thor's mighty hammer, asking who can wield it, and why.

WTF is immortality in the Dresden Files

WTF is immortality in the Dresden Files

May 24, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 6 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.

In this episode, we struggle vainly to get to the bottom of a difficult subject in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Immortality. What is it, how does it work and, crucially, how do we get some? The answers (or lack thereof?) might shock you.

Next time, voyage to a galaxy far far away as our gallant hosts provide a traditional Expertise is Overrated ranking of all 12 (yes, 12!) Star Wars films. This might just be their most divisive episode yet...
