ID10T with Chris Hardwick
I am Chris Hardwick. This podcast used to be called Nerdist. Now it is not. It is still basically just me talking about stuff and things with my two nerdy friends Jonah Ray and Matt Mira when they’re available, and usually someone more famous and smarter than all of us. Swearing is still fun, so we still do that occasionally. I hope you like this new iteration which is the same as before, but if a name hangs you up unhealthily I’m sure you will not hesitate to unfurl your rage not only in the ‘reviews’ section but also now on all the various social media platforms that have popped up since we started in 2010, effectively murdering blogs.

Jimmy Fallon

This chat with Jimmy was part of the magnificent PaleyFest '11, a series of panels comprising cool shows you've heard of. This extended episode covers Fallon's career as a comedy club impressionist all the way up to the recent 2-year anniversary of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon." He was INCREDIBLY sweet, funny and charming. At the end, there was some delightful audience Q&A. And ice cream. This whole night was BUTTSLOADS of fun. Yes, I said "buttsloads", because it would take multiple butts to contain the fun that was had there on March 11 at the Saban Theater in LA.

THERE ARE NO SPOILERS IN THIS EPISODE!!! You can listen to it as a pre-game, parking lot BBQ kind of thing before kick-off. (those are correct sports references, right?)

Andy Samberg

Cross-platform alert! I wrote the cover story for the May issue of WIRED which is an interview with Samberg about the evolution of comedy in the Digital Age. While the magazine just plucked a snippet of our chattings, THIS IS THE FULL UNEDITED AUDIO! Just for you! You can see some of it with your eyes and then absorb the rest of it with your ears! Andy is a solid dude. It was a genuine pleasure to sit down with him and trade words.

Black Dynamite panel!

DYN-O-MITE! DYN-O-MITE! Our second live show at NerdMelt was epic explosion of all things awesome as we welcomed the director and cast of Black Dynamite to celebrate the release of the 1st issue of the BD comic, "Slave Island" (which you should SPRINT to buy immediately). Black Dynamite is one of our favorite comedies of all time, so this ruled a lot. On the panel: Scott Sanders (director), Brian Ash (writer of "Slave Island"), Byron Minns (Bullhorn), and Black Dynamite himself, Michael Jai White. Thanks to the 150 people who came out! This was a Blacktastic night for all!


PS - This is a GREAT listen particularly if you're an indie filmmaker/comedy writer because these guys did it RIGHT.

Xeni Jardin

Xeni is not only an overlord at Boing Boing, but also one of the smartest humans on the planet and a genuine pleasure to talk to. And yes, ending a sentence with "to" is considered poor grammar, which today I am bad at. Further proven by ending a sentence with "at".

James Gunn

Our first live podcast from @NerdMelt! We had a tweet-up to see the film "Super" (which was violent, adorable and awesome) and then brought director James Gunn (who also did "Slither", "Tromeo & Juliet" and wrote 2004's "Dawn of the Dead") back to our clubhouse, where a SPIRITED debate about zombies unfurled.
