Shut Up Nerd Episode 1: Zelda 2
Links to a new podcast with the first episode about "The Adventure of Link!"
Jeff May (@heytherejeffro) is a fantastic podcaster and nerd aficionado. He recently gave guests the chance on his Patreon to co-host and pitch a show. I lept at the opportunity, and we recorded an episode about “Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link.” Listen if you’d like!
Also, if you’d like a bunch of links and references with relative time stamps on the show? We’ve got you covered!
8:05 - The Secretly Incredibly Fascinating episode on The Legend of Zelda, with bonus show on The Legend of Zelda Music, are both must listen!
8:20 - Nintendo Power! Volume 4 and Volume 5 cover Zelda 2.
9:00 - Jeff note’s he’s beaten the game without realizing the heuristic for Death Mountain (the section of interlocking caves) is to go down and to the right and never take an elevator. Something impressive there!
11:50 - I get to discuss my “Nothing Wasted” Challenge on Zelda 2. It’s possible this entire podcast was just an excuse to make someone listen to me on that.
16:45 - If you’re a coder and want a fantastic look behind the code, this video’s for you.
22:35 - For those that don’t know, Jeff was on the Netflix television show “Bullsh*t” he appears in episode 3, but they edited him out during his turn. We make a few references to this and his ability to spot bullshit in the show.
24:00- The Hyrule Historia is a great book with Zelda lore.
25:02 - Small Beans, Gamefully Unemployed, and now Jeff May all offer custom podcast tiers, great for collectors that are out of space!
34:55 - Oh no! With apologies to Jeff, it was not an episode of “You Don’t Even Like Sports.” It was an episode of “The 90s Sucked” with co-host Chet Wild about the Ken Griffy Jr. Rookie Card that wrecked the baseball industry.
35:10 - Enjoy this Twitter saga of Jeff getting a Jose Canseco and Don West card set graded, stolen, and returned!
47:15 - Jeff defends “The Masters of the Universe” live-action movie starring Dolph Lundgren and did a whole podcast episode about it on the Unpops “Best Bad Movie Ever” show.
48:10 - I sponsored a Small Beans episode where they covered the Wizard!
54:22 - Zelda Commercials part 1, Japan vs. the United States!
52:25 - I noted criticism of the Wizard from Roger Ebert and say I might do a Tweet rant on it. I’ll let you know if I do.
1:01:50 - The Legend of Zelda Commercials! Levers! Also, a rap one!
1:14:00- We briefly discuss Star Wars video games and books. Shadows of the Empire was a book, video game, and soundtrack!
1:18:30 - Huge shoutout to the Jeff Has Cool Friends podcast, available on https://patreon.com/jeffmay. The episode with Sean McKeon of the Dallas Cowboys was fantastic.
1:20:51 - Jeff has two sponsored podcasts now. I’ll make you have to listen to hear what the other is (at least time stamped), but oh boy, it’s a great topic!
