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.
Todd Glass

Todd Glass (one of our favorite comedians) joins the show to talk about recording podcasts, performing at horrible corporate gigs, Todd's idea for a TV show where he makes everything better and of course, socks. Make sure to listen to Todd's new podcast "The Todd Glass Show", coming soon from Nerdist Industries!!

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Wil Wheaton Live at SDCC '11!

Recorded live in front of 800 Nerds at San Diego Comic-con on 7/23, this awesometastic mashup of television space travelers yields some of our best podcast moments. Talk of leeches, Steven Moffat Muppets, Karen's love of Lt. Commander Data and how The Doctor and Wesley Crusher pilot their respective ships--namely the TARDIS and the Enterprise (1701-D, of course). THIS. EPISODE. RULES.

SIDENOTE: Thanks to BBC America who sponsored the event by allowing the attendees to "enjoy their burritos" which Matt and Karen helped hand out in TARDIS sleeves. Genius!

SIDESIDENOTE: There are some spoilers if you haven't seen this season of Doctor Who yet!

Eliza Dushku/Tahmoh Penikett

This sorta kinda Dollhouse panel with Eliza and Tahmoh was recorded at the nerdtastical C2E2 in Chicago. They're both so friggin cool that I wanted to spend the entire panel just hugging both of them, but organizers requested that we have a conversation instead. PILES of thanks to ReedPop for allowing us to record and share this with the masses!!!

Rove McManus/Axis of Awesome

One for Australia with this Aussie-themed episode of the Nerdist Podcast! Brilliant talk-show host Rove McManus came to our NerdMelt space and talked about comedy down under, touring, and how you decide to leave a successful show on its 10th anniversary. If that twern't enough, musical comedy group Axis of Awesome rounded out a splendid night with hilariousness. Btw, Australians don't really drink a lot of Foster's, it turns out. That's just something they tell us here.
