About the show

Every week on Nerd Rage: The Great Debates, your moderator, Marc Abrigo, challenges the funniest stand-up comics, podcasters, and even pro-wrestlers to take sides and square off to settle some of geekdom’s hottest (and often times, weirdest) debates: how many muscle cars does Vin Diesel need to beat Captain America? Is Steven Universe a better frontman than Super Mario? And just what the hell will a lightsaber accomplish in the world of the Matrix? All will be settled -- are you ready to rage?
