Nerdist Podcast #671:+Robin Lord Taylor
1st May, 2015

Quite simply the most charismatic and commanding baddie currently on television. The Penguin: 'nuff said. in interviews, Lord Taylor has always come across as one of the most approachable subjects, always up for a giggle, so this episode should be quite the laugh. This is also the first member of the +Gotham cast that Team Nerdist have had on the 'pod, here's hoping that, in future, others can be convinced to come on as well. ([repetitive chant] "Sean Pertwee, Sean Pertwee, Sean Pertwee, Sean bloody Pertwee...!!")

"Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham, +The Walking Dead) talks with Chris about growing up in a small town as a theater nerd, his role on The Walking Dead and getting the part of Oswald on Gotham. He also talks about being openly gay and weird TV shows they watched as kids!"

[nerdist.com hasn't posted their website link yet, we've kinda caught them on the hop...]

Nerdist Podcast #669: +Eddie Pepitone Returns
29th April, 2015

Another day, another returnee comedian. Thank goodness the ones that are coming back are top notch, then. And it's always fun to hear someone that Jonah can riff off with a similar dry sense of humour. Let's do this...

"Eddie Pepitone (comedian, The Bitter Buddah) returns to the Nerdist to chat with Chris and Jonah about strange dreams and dream interpretation theory, Eddie talks about being in therapy for years and how important it is to maintain what you've built and not just build new things. They also talk about life on the road and Eddie's new album In Ruins!"

Nerdist Podcast #668: Will Forte Returns
27th April, 2015

Now, the last time Forte was on t'pod (back in Dec '03, #455 https://nerdist.com/nerdist-podcast-will-forte/), he was fresh off his leaving +Saturday Night Live, Nebraska was just about to come out and things were looking up for this very talented dude. Then, the End Of Mankind happened. That's just bad timing, right??

Chris and Team Nerdist risk everything by inviting this bad penny, this hot potato, this black cat, back into the studio to talk the continued success of one of 2015's runaway comedy hits...

"The hilarious Will Forte (SNL, MacGruber, The Last Man on Earth) is back for more! They talk about why bees are dying off, what it must be like to be the president, and what jobs scare them the most. They also talk about his show The Last Man on Earth and the upcoming second season!"

Nerdist Podcast #667: +Thomas Middleditch
24th April, 2015

I consider myself a pretty good nerd, I absorb what I can. I haven't watched all of +Silicon Valley yet. It's sat right there on +Netflix, I really should get on top of that, shouldn't I?

"Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley, comedian) talks to Chris and Matt about playing games on his new +Twitch channel, what video games they are currently into and they create a character called Gill Gates. They also talk about Thomas being Canadian and the new season of Silicon Valley!"

Nerdist Podcast #665: +Jonah Keri Returns
20th April, 2015

Remember Jonah Keri? From 'pod #497, back last March? (http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/nerdist/Nerdist_497_-_Jonah_Keri.mp3) Well, it's good to welcome him back for another hit - hey there, Jonah!

"Jonah Keri (Grantland writer/podcaster, author) returns to the podcast to describe the mega fantasy league he just joined, his time working in stocks, and life in Denver right now. Chris also talks about the heyday of bowling and Jonah talks about the paperback release of his book Up, Up and Away. And they have a heated debate about the best burger in LA!"

Nerdist Podcast #664: Nerdist Podcast 'The Goodest'
17th April, 2015

And so, we rapidly approach the end of another week. And what better way to wind down the last seven manic days than to take one of those rare opportunities to sit down with our favourite nerds and listen to how well their respective love lives are doing. Gaaah, makes yer sick, doesn't it?? Tee-hee!
"The guys got together for a hostful! Chris talks about his recent vacation to Utah, Matt talks about his wedding planning, and Jonah does an impression of President Obama. They also talk about the new Fast and Furiousmovie, Jonah’s excitement for Entourage, and debate what to call the episode!"

Thank you for letting me be a fly on the wall for a little bit. I listen to your podcast while at work (I'm a data entry drone who gets to wear earbuds at work), and the biggest fauxplaint I have is that it is often difficult to keep my laughter on the inside.  So far, so good...
There have been a few tears though...

Nerdist Podcast #663: Sarah Colonna
15th April, 2015

Nope, not a sausage - this is clearly an American thing of which us Muggles are clearly ignorant of. However, who am I to doubt Chris (Katie)'s judgement of guests, huh? And I'm certain that the more I find out about her, the more I'll love her. Let the Learning Stuff About New People begin...

"Sarah Colonna talks to Chris and Matt about doing recon on Bar Rescue, Sarah’s time as a secret shopper and what kind of reality TV show they would want to host. They also talk about her new book Has Anyone Seen My Pants? and play a game on the internet!"

Nerdist Podcast #662: +Undateable (+Brent Morin, +Ron Funches, +Rick Glassman and +David Fynn)
13th April, 2015

I like these mass ensemble 'pods when they happen, they could come off as mad, chaotic scrambles for airtime but Chris is a pretty fair moderator, he can handle a group dynamic when one's in front of him (hence his skills on @Midnight) and when it's a group that know each other, and each others rhythms, like this one does, it becomes fun. Looking forward to this one...

"Brent Morin, Ron Funches, Rick Glassman and David Fynn from Undateable chat with Chris about different stand up tours they have been on, Rick’s ability to make acronyms on the fly and Brent and David explain what Passover is in song form. They also do their impressions of British accents and talk about the new season of Undateable!"

Nerdist Podcast #660: Billy Crystal and Josh Gad
8th April, 2015

Two varying generations of comedians, from totally different schools of style and approach, come together in a very special project - and they get to talk to an utter comedy nerd about it. Hope Chris brought fresh trousers...

"Billy Crystal and Josh Gad chat with Chris and Jonah about how the idea of The Comedians came to be, the time Josh Gad was asked to sing for Billy and all their varying comedic influences. Billy then talks about the loss of Robin Williams, what helped get back to work after and they tell some stories from working with Mel Brooks!"

Nerdist Podcast #670: Dave Holmes
30th April, 2015

Yay! A fresh face on t'pod, it's felt like a while, thought the Boys had had on everybody they could've. Let's dive right in to it, then...

"Dave Holmes (MTV, Reno 911, DVD on TV) and Chris reminisce about their days on +MTV, how he went from working in advertising to being on TV and being openly gay from the start of his career. They also talk about sexual identity in today’s world, his live show at the +NERDMELT showroom The Friday Forty and his new TV show American Canvas!"

Nerdist Podcast #666: Eliza Coupe
22nd April, 2015

Well, somebody had to get it – the podcast with that number. And you know what they say, the Devil will always appear in the most beguiling of guises. and you don't get more beguiling than Ms. Coupe... although, in searching for a pic to accompany this post, she does seem to have appeared at a lot of red carpet events/product launches/premieres. The Devil Wears A VIP Wristband, it seems?

"Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings, Benched, Scrubs) talks with Chris about growing up in New Hampshire, getting into hockey fights and writing in a journal every day of her life. They also attempt to talk in different accents, talk about lots and lots of gross stuff and her new movie The Last Time You Had Fun!"

It's Nerdist News! And that there +Jessica Chobot gives a breakdown of the #BatmanvsSuperman trailer...
 
In regards to Batman holding the "sniper rifle." I suppose it's a possibility but I was thinking it looked more like an antenna - the kind you see on tall buildings to service as warnings to low-flying planes and wireless towers. You don't really see Batman holding it, just the silhouette of the object and Batman and it's too dark to make out any details.

As for his voice, roboticized or not, sorry, just not diggin' it. Mostly because I, although a fan of Ben Affleck, am not totally sold on Ben Affleck as Batman. That's because I remember seeing him as Daredevil in the theater and 1. That was baaaaad. And 2. He's already been a superhero in my eyes and it's a little awkward to make that transition.

Don't take too much offense to it though, I didn't really dig on Bale's Batman voice either.

In my opinion they need to find someone who can do as close of a match to Batman's voice on the animated series and they'd have a winner.

Can I just say...

Thanks to +Nellie K. Adaba for her support of this community and the Podcast posts I put together? She +1's most, if not all, of them and frankly if she hasn't have done that, I'd have stopped ages ago. Thanks, Nellie!

PS. Two more followers to tip us over the edge. Spread the word!

HARDWATCH: WEEK OF APRIL 13TH, 2015

Post by +Rachel Berkey / +Nerdist
http://nerdist.com/hardwatch-week-of-april-13th-2015/

There's actually a thing called 'Hardwatch'? Ooh, that makes my life a little bit easier...

"It’s an in-between week for our fearless leader’s Funcomfortable Tour, but you can still find Chris in lots of places for your eyes and your ears. Here’s a rundown of where he’s to be found in the coming seven days.

There are four new episodes of @midnight to look forward to with Arden Myrin, Mike Lawrence and Guy Branum starting the week off strong. Kurt Braunohler, Megan Neuringer and Adam Cayton-Holland will be at the podiums on Tuesday. Chris D’Elia and Ian Edwards will compete with a to-be-announced guest on Wednesday, and the week wraps up with Tim Minchin and two – yes two – mystery guests. If R2-D2 makes another appearance, I might just melt down.

There will be three new episodes of the Nerdist Podcast for you to look forward to this week as well. Ron Funches, Brent Morin, Rick Glassman and David Fynn of Undateable will sit down to talk about their stand-up tour, Passover, bonding and more. Chelsea Lately‘s Sarah Colonna will be on the show to make Matt jealous because she was part of Bar Rescue and to talk about important topics like panel shows and research that involves porn. The final podcast of the week is rumored to be a hostful so keep an ear out for that.

Chris will be back on the road for the Funcomfortable Tour at the end of April with stops in Columbus on April 24th, and Atlanta on April 25th. Tickets for both early shows are sold out but there are still some available for both late shows. As always, keep an eye on Chris’s social media for any last minute changes to the plan and to check out the fun things he buys for his house."

Nerdist Podcast #661: +Adam Carolla #5
11th April,  2015

Carolla... what again?! Well, when a guy sits inside the Nerdist 'pod groove as comfortably as he does, almost like a fourth member of the band (the guitar tech, perhaps, or the tambourine player), you look forward to having the man back up to the mic. And Adam's been a busy boy so he comes back with plenty to talk about...

"Adam Carolla returns to the Nerdist for a 5th time! He and Chris talk about the difference between good and bad interviewers, being happy for more successful friends and coming up with the idea for his movie Road Hard. He also talks about how he did all the crowd funding for Road Hard!"

ICYMI - Nerdist Podcast #659: Tom Lennon Returns
7th April, 2015

Ah yes, the Forgotten Podcast. It doesn't happen too often but, when it does, I can only apologise – this is what happens when I get the notification that a new 'pod has been released, just as I'm rolling into my new part-time job and my itinerary on my desk automatically kick off as a cluster fuck: ultimately, you get distracted. I only hope Tom Lennon - and you, Gentle Reader, can forgive me...

"Tom Lennon returns to the Nerdist for a third (check that!) time to talk about the time he went to a party and pretended to be Regis Philbin, how his son is the same age as the podcast, and how they came up with the idea of Reno 911. He also talks about his new show The Odd Couple, Thursdays at 8:30pm on +CBS!"
