In which Stuart and Andy talk toons... Stuart and Andy get together to talk about & countdown their 10 favourite cartoons.  But before they get into that, they have a little catch up about what they're working on (comics & commissions), what they've been watching (Reacher, Dune, Belfast, Mass) and the (probable) end of an era (Neighbours being axed).  Stuart also addresses an oversight from the end of year episode, and picks his 2022 Intention Fail.

About The Nerds

The Haunted Nerds are Stuart Mulrain & Andy Hanks; two friends who bonded over Nerdy things after meeting in school in the 90's.  Among several misadventures over their decades long frinedship, they decided to start a podcast, mainly as an excuse to have a nerdy chat once a month.

 

Usual topics include art (they're both keen drawers), comics, movies and any other general nonsense that pops into their heads.
