Dave Attell! Truly one of the best comics working today. We were honored to have him on to chat about comedy, weird television and vintage skin flicks. His new show "Dave's Old Porn" premiered on Showtime earlier this Fall so if you get a chance, watch that business!

Matt and I ventured to New York to chat up one of their favorite people Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is always the smartest person in the room. Any room. Dr. Tyson is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space. He also hosts NOVA scienceNOW on PBS and the ever enthralling StarTalk, which Mira and I were lucky enough to sit in on for the episode posting November 13th. Beyond all that, HE IS FUNNY. Like, actually hilarious.

This ep covers everything from Cosmology to quarks with a side of space sex. We had damn near unhealthy amounts of fun and I hope to con Dr. Tyson to coming on again in the near future.

Recorded live at the California Academy of Sciences for SF Sketchfest! This was done in the African Hall amidst a collection of animal exhibits, but we on the Nerdist podcast managed to capture the finest exhibit of all--the unruly and wild VERONICA BELMONT. See what I did there? I made it sound like she was one of the creatures. Truly, though, she rules a lot, as you will hear. Also, the audio is screwy. We only had access to docent head-mics and they don't record well, but Veronica's awesomeness will pierce through that to stab you in the heart with good times.
