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.

Chris talks about The Walking Dead panel in Oakland, Jonah has gotten lots of music for Jonah Raydio, and Matt is bad at bowling. And the guys tell stories of legendary Hollywood mogul Leo Murray!

A sit-down chat with Willem Dafoe about emotional flexibility, Appleton, Wisconsin, and giant billboards. He also gives us a glimpse of what's going on inside the head of the Green Goblin and talks about a brush with a stand-up comedy career. This episode is a full, delicious meal!

The amazing and hilarious Ellie Kemper--whom you probably have seen being really funny in Bridesmaids & The Office--joins us to talk about women in comedy, our favorite Moby songs and bumper stickers. And then we take a picture in the bathroom!

Chris, Jonah and Wil Wheaton (who sat in for Matt Mira) hung out with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy for an amazingly in depth chat about his path to becoming a musician and how his kids like having a rockstar for a dad. Make sure to stick around at the end for a few songs from Wilco's sound check at The Wiltern!

Jonah, Matt and I actually talk about diets and hair. How very "Sex and the City" of us. No one's the Samantha, though. I think we're all Mirandas. WHAT AM I SAYING?? Fun quemments, and then Jonah talks about his new podcast "Jonah Raydio" which will include stories of pooping. See? Mirandas.
