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.
Live in Portland!

The Nerdist Podcast is now on tour! This is a hostful episode from our recent live show in Portland. The weather was beautiful and the crowd was AMAZINGTOWN. Also, a very special thing happens at the end. We happily lick you with doggie kisses, Portland!!!

TJ Miller

Comedian TJ Miller talks about releasing a weird rap album, wearing tuxedos in the morning and why he did Yogi Bear. We found him to be a very sweet guy who is quite methodical about his madness!

John Hodgman

Hodgman talks moustaches, Steve Jobs, and his new book "That Is All," available Nov. 1. If you listened to the Neil Gaiman episode then you already know that Hodgman is both spirit and flesh and exists everywhere and nowhere. He must be feared and revered. He. Is. THE HODGMAN.

Penn & Teller

Okay! It's really a solo Penn Jillette show. But I knew Teller wouldn't talk anyway so I just listed it as "Penn & Teller". Thought that would be clever and amusing. As I'm typing it, I can see now that I was wrong. Too lazy to delete it all and start over though, despite the fact that it would actually take me less time to do that than to explain and disclaim it. I'm weird! I'm a crazypants! Cock-a-doodle-SQUEEEEEE!!! All squeeing aside, Penn was a truly wonderful guest. We talked about the space program, song poems, bowling, his new show on Discovery "Penn & Teller Tell A Lie", PLUS we got the full little person/chimp story that I referenced to Adam Savage on Nerdist Podcast #10. This episode is like a suitcase full of steak! PACKED and MEATY. Also delicious. #goodtimes
