Alex, Willie, and Nick met each other as each of them started working at a movie rental store. The inception of the Midwest Film Nerds Podcast formed within Willie and Alex’s brains shortly after they first became friends. As lovers of film, video games, comics, and many other things, they found they had a lot in common. To fill that creative void that sometimes presents itself in one’s soul, they decided to start recording a podcast, and that is how the Midwest Film Nerds Podcast began. This website is another form of creative output and a way for fans to get to know each of the hosts on the podcast.
