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.

Andrea Savage returns to the Nerdist podcast! She and Chris talk about kids asking where babies come from, destination weddings and her daughter starting third grade. They also talk about her show I'm Sorry on TruTV, Andrea's fantasy to have a bunch of dogs and they try to bring back their favorite bit!
