The Goldnerds Podcast

We’ve been live for a little over a month now, so we thought it was time to officially announce that The Goldnerds Podcast is now available on iTunes! Click the image to head there now. Subscribe & review!iTunes-PodcastThe podcast is hosted by the fine folks at Podcast Garden and you can always find the episodes there as well. Our latest episode – Eagle Tears – talks about the just-aired “Cowboy Country” and the other upcoming episodes for the month.

Last week we had a special guest on the podcast – Chad Kremp stopped by to talk previously unheard Goldbergs history, flowers & more! Listen to Episode 4.5 for all the details.

It wouldn’t be The Goldnerds Podcast without Ashley (@wendifansite) and we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the AMAZING work she did on the Goldnerds Valentine’s Day cards. Since this week’s episode was all about love (forbidden & otherwise) we requested that she add a bonus card featuring Adam & Dana and she came up with something brilliant!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Though it’s technically still 3 days away we wanted to get this card out there to say Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our fellow Goldnerds out there!

2014 Wrap-up

AKA – Goldnerds: Year One!

goldnerdsAs we look back on 2014 we realize it was a great year for both The Goldbergs and the Goldnerds! Anything that’s good for the show is great for its fans and that mean #1980something was awesome in 2014.

The Goldnerds launched back in May just in time for the Season 1 finale. The only thing we knew was that more and more people needed to watch this show and thus the fandom was born! Right out of the gate we got some fun followers on Twitter and the dream became a reality.

We were faced with the problem of launching a fandom in the summer between the seasons, but thankfully ABC helped us out with two episodes of The Goldbergs on most Wednesdays throughout the summer. Also, to unify the fans, we decided to create and rally behind #Emmy4Wendi. Oh, and we also instituted #FunFactFriday throughout most Fridays of the summer. And this was just what we started in May!

In June we hit full stride on the #Emmy4Wendi campaign and received some great artwork help from the WendiFanSite. Unfortunately an official nomination was nowhere to be found so it was up to the fans to take matters into their own hands. The Goldies was/were born in July!

The first annual Goldies (Goldnerds Fan Awards) was a smashing success and ran through August. With Season 2 in full swing some categories are already shaping up for next year! (You can see last year’s winners right here.) July was also the month we debuted our first series of Goldnerds membership cards. Towards the end of July the cast was back at it and gearing up for Season 2 and August brought more hints of what was to come!

September began the 23 Days of Goldbergs leading up to the Season 2 premiere. The Season 1 DVD was released to great acclaim and we launched our first line of Goldnerds clothing & accessories (which was quickly shut down due to the fact that we had no idea Sony was planning on doing something similar the following month). You can still believe in 1980something however, because our re-design was eventually approved for purchase. Click here to order!

October saw the release of the Goldnerds Downloadable Collectible (which didn’t get quite the traction we were hoping for, but contained brilliant almost minimalist designs from @comedy_girl that you shouldn’t have missed). Season 2 was rockin’ onscreen and in the ratings so it was time for a November surprise! That’s right – Goldnerds Cards: Series 2! The release of the new cards actually occurred in December, but the giveaway hasn’t quite gone as planned & we’re still stocked with new cards we’d love to give to you (see giveaway post for details).

Though we have come to the last day of the year it really only feels like the Goldnerds are just getting started. There’s obviously plenty of news to be shared for the rest of The Goldbergs Season 2 (more on that in a later post). It looks like 2015 holds a lot of promise for the fans.

Happy New Year Goldnerds! See you in 2015

It’s here – your Goldnerds Downloadable Collectible Series 1, Card 2 of 6, has finally arrived!

Again, we worked closely with the wonderful Wendi McLendon-Covey Fansite to bring you this two-color gem. When paired with Monday’s release, we think you’ll find that this collection is shaping up to be something quite special! We also did a slightly more difficult puzzle for this one (lots of white space but still do-able!) over here:  http://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=01f4d2f08da0

Goldnerds Downloadable Collectibles – Series 1

The lament of Goldbergs fans is finally over. Your ship has come in!

For those of you who were unable to obtain the most coveted hand-numbered & laminated cards of the summer, we have heard your cries! We partnered with the good folks over at the Wendi McLendon-Covey fansite (visit http://wendimclendoncovey.skl.me/ or @Wendifansite on Twitter) to bring you something special! Over the next 5 weeks we will be releasing 6 downloadable card-sized images that you can have for your very own. Upon release of the 6th card a final surprise will be revealed. We can’t think of a better way to show your love for The Goldbergs (other than a shirt, mug, or other item, of course)

Today we will release card #1, with each subsequent card being release on next 5 Fridays.
