The Nerdist
Nerdy nerdness comedy podcast w/ Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray & Matt Mira.

Yes, THE MUPPETS. The Muppets came on my wee podcast to discuss the Entertainment Business, balancing home & work, digital culture and their recent Webby nominations for their sublimely delightful cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody". They were thoughtful, articulate and generally wonderful. As a lifelong fan of their work, chatting with them may have been the single greatest moment of my life. It's a fun, candid interview so I hope you enjoy it!

BONUS EPISODE! Normally we're a once-a-week operation but somehow we're at a point where we have a few "in the can" as they say in the Entertainment Biz (and I assume the Pornography Biz as well) so I wanted to get these guys on as soon as it was possible. Damian Kulash and Tim Nordwind are super smart, very nice dudes who have made some of the best videos in recent memory through the use of those super-smarts and a willing army of creative fans willing to help out (nerdsourcing). It was a genuine pleasure hanging out with them.

Eugene Mirman wants to fire the audience, God's Pottery gives a shout out to a footless boy, Chris enjoys Russian culture, Jonah is wearing a snazzy jacket that you can't see, and Matt was late probably because he likes the Dave Matthews Band.

The fantastically brilliant Adam Savage of "Mythbusters" joined us for our very first live podcast! This was recorded at Largo in Los Angeles on April 5th, 2010 in front of a kick-ass crowd of delightful humans. As these people had exchanged hard-earned dollars for seats to this show, we made it a little longer than a normal podcast by incorporating live performances and taking Q & A from them at the end.

*SPECIAL NOTE: Adam did stand-up for the FIRST TIME in his life and DESTROYED. It was truly hilarious and I hope he continues to do it!

*SPECIAL NOTE #2: We all swear a lot in this, so if you wanted to listen to this with your kids, think again unless you're sure the Internet has already taught them way worse things than F-bombs.

Excelsior!

Recently I became email pals with Mike Shinoda of the band Linkin Park and have found him to be two of my favorite things: super-smart and super-nice. This is a special "one-on-one" podcast, with just Mike and myself, as Jonah and Matt were both out of town doing out of town things. Don't worry, though, I'm sure Matt was liking the Dave Matthews Band wherever he was.
