Nerdist Podcast #695: Ben Folds #3
27th June, 2015

It's felt like an age, right? But this is the third time Ben has been on the 'pod so this is him joining a rarified clan of guests that have returned on numerous occasions... It's just nice when someone who obviously fits comes back on and slots right in, however long it's been.

"Ben Folds (musician) returns to the Nerdist podcast! He chats with Chris, Matt and Jonah about how he hurt his hand, his upcoming tour and how he balances all the instruments he plays. They also talk about watching movies without the sound and how fear and creativity complement each other!"

Nerdist Podcast #693: Janet Montgomery
22nd June, 2015

Crap on a stick. I have an app which pings me every time Katie uploads a new episode of the 'pod, allowing me to be on the ball, the second they drop, to pass on to you. The problem is, the same app is also what's feeding me San Diego Comic-Con news right now and the service is getting a little swamped. In other words, I'm missin' 'em!

Actually, I might be a little tied up in the next few weeks anyway so don't be too shocked if I miss a few more in the immediate future. I'll keep up with it all the best I can but I ain't promising anything, okay? In the meantime, drown your sorrows with the dulcet tones of one of my countrymen. Countrywomen. You know what I mean.

"Janet Montgomery (Salem, Black Mirror) talks with Chris and Matt about leaving England to work in Hollywood, what they think the Salem universe is really like and how they like being workaholics. They also talk about different accents and Janet tries out her American accent for a bit!"

Nerdist Podcast #691: Hostful Goodness 'Super Relatable'
17th June, 2015

We could do this, you know. We could actually make 700 episodes by the time we roll round to San Diego +Comic-Con International l. Indeed, the 700th could be the live show on the 11th July - how cool would that be? And in the room with Sir Ben Kingsley, of all people. Cherry on top of the cake.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. First up, lets have a long-overdue Hostful with the full roster - it's going to be fun, catching up with the boys...

"Some mid-week hostful goodness! Chris, Matt and Jonah talk about Chris' weekend at Bonaroo, Matt meets another left handed guitarist and they talk about some movies they have seen recently!"

[no nerdist.com link just yet - give 'em a break, it's literally just been uploaded...]

Nerdist Podcast #689: Jim Norton Returns
13th June, 2015

Sorry this is late. I had toothache. How about that for a bloody crap excuse?

"Jim Norton (comedian, Opie Radio, Louie) returns to the podcast to talk about his role on Opie Radio, getting trolled by people online, and what happened with Opie and Anthony. Jim and Chris also talk about their love and fascination with chess and Jim’s new special!"

Nerdist Podcast #687: Shane West
8th June, 2015

West - an actor with possibly the sharpest jawline in Hollywood, often covered by an unruly mob of facial fungus – sits down with the full compliment of Team Nerdist to talk life, love, music and, er, witches...

"Shane West (Salem, Nikita, A Walk To Remember) talks with Chris, Matt and Jonah about his character of John Alden in Salem, shooting the TV show in Louisiana, and what the world was really like during the witch trials. Shane also talks about playing music and joining the band The Germs!"

Nerdist Podcast #685: John Cusack
3rd June, 2015

If you're a follower of Mr. Cusack's Twitter feed, then you knew this one was coming - nice of Team Nerdist to let their guests be aware of when the upload is due! To be fair, Katie has turned this one around pretty sharpish; they only recorded this on Monday. So, yay Katie! The whole gang is in the room for this one so should be quite the giggle/music themed chat...

"John Cusack (Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity, Say Anything) talks with Chris, Matt and Jonah about his role of Brian Wilson in Love and Mercy, the music of The Beach Boys and how suffering and art coexist. He also talks about growing up as a teenage actor, living a nomad life and the numerous characters he has played!"

#SDCC2015 Off-Site: Chris Hardwick announces 2nd @Nerdist Podcast show, 10.30pm Sat 11th July

thanks to +Neil Williamson for the heads-up

+Chris Hardwick is up for putting himself through the ringer, this +Comic-Con International, with quite the punishing schedule – as well as the +Nerdist set up at Petco Park, he also has a couple of evening shows to do. First, on the Friday, there is a live version of his @Midnight series and then, on the Saturday, a live taping of the #NerdistPodcast at 7.30 pm with Sir Ben Kingsley.

Well, putting another rod to his back, Hardwick has added a second show on the Saturday at 10.30pm, going on sale this Friday at 12pm PT (8pm GMT). no announcement on who the guest will be yet but there's time, I'm sure. If you missed out on tickets for the first show, or if you just needed a couple of hours to recover from a full day in Hall H, this might be the show for you. Good luck!

"Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead, Silicon Valley, Office Space) chats with Chris about going from the real Silicon Valley to making TV shows, what inspired him to get into animation, and his cartoons in the Spike and Mike Festivals!

Nerdist Podcast #694: Hostful Goodness 'Overruled! (I'll Allow It)'
24th June, 2015

They'd have to fit in five more episodes before hitting SDCC and the two shows on Saturday 11th, for those to be the Seven Hundredth Episode! Can it be done? Is that the target? Could Chris actually care less about the numbers? Only time will tell...!

"The guys start out this episode as a food podcast, then they talk about watching Lifetime’s A Deadly Adoption and what other movies they saw this weekend. Matt also took a spontaneous trip to Vegas, Chris likes to watch ghost shows and turns out Kyle is a dirty liar!"

#SDCC2015 Off-Site: Chris Hardwick announces 2nd guest for @Nerdist Live show –@bbcdoctorwho’s Peter Capaldi!

+Nerdist head honcho +Chris Hardwick has been taking to Twitter today to announce a whole bunch of stuff that the Company The Podcast Built is bringing to San Diego +Comic-Con International (including screenings of a horror film that Nerdist Industries has been involved in the production of, called The Hive) And, at 6pm GMT, or breakfast time on the West Coast, Chris dropped the proverbial bomb…

"@nerdist: ANNOUNCEMENT 2! Or, 12, technically! PETER CAPALDI will be our other guest at the 7:30 Nerdist Podcast Live at SDCC!!"

That’s right! If having SIR BEN KINGSLEY on stage with the boys wasn’t a packed stage enough, they are also bringing along PETER CAPALDI – the Freakin’ Eleventh Doctor! – along, making this possibly the most English (and Distinguished British Luvvie Actors) guest list that Nerdist have ever arranged! That’s going to be one rammed show!

The whole she-bang kicks off at 7.30pm on Saturday 11th June at the +Balboa Theatre – I wasn’t aware that any tickets were still available but Chris has tweeted the link right there so you can only click it to find out, I suppose: http://t.co/OxUjmYXim4

And no word yet on who the guests will be for the added 10.30pm show but it’s going to have to be someone pretty impressive to match the one-two punch of Kingsley and Capaldi – that announcement happens tomorrow. Along with the start of the roll-out of panel announcements, this is where things really take up a notch! Watch this space…

Nerdist Podcast #692: +Lauren Lapkus
19th June, 2015

To complement the Pratt/Trevorrow 'pod from earlier on in the week, here's another cast member who I know more from +Jurassic World than +Orange is the New Black, if I'm going to be completely honest... I know, I really should sort that out. So much television, man!

"Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black, Jurassic World) talks with Chris, Matt and Jonah about improving in her role in Jurassic World, a new project that she isn't allowed to talk about and her new show Clipped on TBS! They also talk about how improv helps with all aspects of life, why you shouldn't make fun of someone's laugh and her podcast With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus!"

Nerdist Podcast #690: Chris Pratt and +Colin Trevorrow
15th June, 2015

Another pair of names it would've been awesome to have show up at San Diego +Comic-Con International for Chris' live shows at SDCC; never mind. We will take this 'pod as fine remuneration - two for the price of one, so to speak. And Pratt is always a giggle when he's in company as he just can't resist trying to get a reaction. Let's see if Trevorrow - his boss, don't forget - bites...

"Chris Pratt (Parks and Rec, +Guardians of the Galaxy, +Jurassic World) and Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed, Jurassic World) talk with Chris and Matt about what they think of Back to the Future 2, how life has changed for Chris since losing weight and how social media changes the way actors are perceived. Trevor also talks about what made him want to make Jurassic World and how they developed Chris’ character in the movie!"

Nerdist Podcast #688: +Joseph Gordon-Levitt Returns
10th June, 2015

One of the quintessential questions of a Hollywood child actor that breaks through the barrier to have a career beyond his youth: how on Earth did he get from there to here? You can ask it of the Olson sisters, Neil Patrick Harris and, of course, JGL. In Joe's case (and indeed, all other successful examples) it was a road which involved staking their own claim beyond what was expected - nay, demanded - of them, and forging their own path. It's been a fun ride so far, I'm curious to see where it takes him next...

"Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, The Dark Knight Rises, 3rd Rock From The Sun) chat with Chris and Matt about how he came up with the name for HitRecord, his idea for a choose your own adventure film and even sports! Joseph also talks about researching for the Edward Snowden movie he just filmed and how HitRecord and Pivot came to be!"

Nerdist Podcast #686: Allison Janney
5th June, 2015

Bugger. With every new guest on the current slew of 'pods, we're crossing off the names of the potential guests at the newly announced second show at San Diego +Comic-Con International - t'Missus Will be particularly peeved by this one, as she is a rather large fan of Janney's and would have loved to have seen her on stage with Chris and the Boys. Still, never mind...

(Oh, and a quick apology about the delay for posting this episode – I have a notification which warns me when a new episode is released and it's looking like Team Nerdist has fudged around with its RSS settings. Keeping me on my toes, guys…)

"Allison Janney (The West Wing, Mom, Masters of Sex) chats with Chris about what got her into acting, how her role in The West Wing inspired girls to go into politics and working too much she doesn't have time to eat. They also exchange a few dirty jokes, talk about the differences between the many characters she's played and she talks about her role in Spy!"

'Piecing Together The Soundtrack of My Life'

post on nerdist.com by +Benjamin Bailey

"Music is magical. It has a power to it, the ability to instantly make you feel a certain emotion or remember a particular place and time. In a way, we all have our own soundtracks: the songs, artists, and albums that played when we had our first kisses, danced our first dances, or broke our noses in a mosh pit. It might not always be a good feeling, but the right song can make you feel the way you felt at any particular moment in your life and that is nothing short of incredible.

So, as an exercise, I pieced together a few key albums from my own life. I tried to remember the peaks and valleys of growing up, the hard times and the good times, and I focused on the tunes that played while it all happened. This isn’t just a list of my favorite albums (such a list would look very, very different) but rather a list of albums that represent specific events of my life. So, at the risk of baring my soul, here are some highlights for the soundtrack of my life..."

WARNING: there are some killer albums in this list. Just a heads-up.

Nerdist Podcast #683: +Alicia Witt Returns
29th May, 2015

Well, well. Between Witt and +Stephen Tobolowsky, this has turned into quite the week for Character Actor Assassins on the 'pod: those actors that pick up the script, say the lines and walk away with every scene they're in, leaving no man standing. Massive, phenomenal talents... And I'm especially a fan of Witt's. (Okay, ooh er, Missus! That may have come out a bit wrong. Let me start over...)

"Alicia Witt (Justified, Cybill, musician) chats with Chris at +SiR Studios while singing songs! They talk about her time as a pianist at the +Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel), their mutual love of Barry Manilow and how people interpret song lyrics. They also talk about her new album 'Revisionary History'!"

[hold your horses, no nerdist.com link as yet. let Katie get her sleep, that boss of hers has probably been running her ragged...]
