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.

Bill Nye the Science Guy is finally on the podcast! Bill talks about his friendship with Carl Sagan, why science is the best idea EVER and a very special announcement about the return of the Science Guy videos!

Gabe Diani & Etta Devine are a wonderfully hilarious comedy team and longtime friends of Chris (Nerdist Stand-Up Cluster 2). They ran a successful kickstarter campaign to make "Huck Finn: Robotic Edition" and are currently raising money to get their film "The Selling" a theatrical release. Because we have a lot of creative-y types who listen to the show, we brought them on to share their insight about making film, sketch comedy and books from scratch. They are the ultimate DIYers, so pull up a chair (or stand if you really feel like it) and take some notes. If you've been on the fence about making a thing you want to make, the time is now!
