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.

The wonderful Anthony Edwards invites Chris to his apartment to talk about his past roles from Revenge of the Nerds to Top Gun to Gotcha to ER to his new show, Zero Hour! Anthony also talks about traveling around the globe and the ways he is trying to make the world a better place!

This episode of Nerdist from NY Comic Con almost didn't happen! This amazing show at The Best Buy theater with Guillermo Del Toro, Joel Hodgson and Travis Beacham accidentally didn't get recorded, but then (thanks to the magic of iPhones and social media) we found someone who had recorded it from the audience. So now you get to hear it! Enjoy!

Tom Hanks! Tom. Motherf--king. Hanks. What more of a description do you NEED than that? Is the fact that we talk about Tom's career, NASA logos, Storage Wars, vintage typewriters and blasting caps going to influence your decision any further to enjoy this very special and hilariotastic episode?? Well I guess it should, because Tom made those all really fun things to talk about. And those rumors about his being the nicest most down-to-Earth fellow? ENTIRELY TRUE.
