Nerdist Podcast #643: Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton
28th February 2015

I've been watching +It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Netflix, catching up the best I can (it's never had a home on a channel for me in the UK) - it rocks, fans of the show know it rocks, friends of the fans of the show know it rocks. Because they won't stop telling them. The show is basically the 'comedy Firefly'.

"Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia chat with Chris and Jonah about how they balance making a TV show and having kids, how their senses of humor complement each other, and creating a TV show based on characters and not premise. They also talk about getting Danny DeVito on the show, the many other projects they are working on, and the new season of Always Sunny!"

[it's fresh off the presses so no nerdist.com link as of yet. soz.]

Nerdist Podcast #640: +Sleater Kinney
22nd February, 2015

What a friggin' awesome band, right? Great way to rock your weekend!

"Sleater-Kinney talks to Chris, Matt and Jonah about where to live in Portland, the time Jonah embarrassed himself in front of Janet and getting the band back together. They also talk about their new album No Cities to Love and their current tour!"

Nerdist Podcast #638: +Scott Aukerman Returns
16th February, 2015

Another returnee: first on the 'pod back in May 2012 (#210 https://www.nerdist.com/pepisode/nerdist-podcast-scott-aukerman/), Scott has come a long way since then. A couple of @Midnight appearances, his podcast going from strength to strength... it's been a wild ride. Time for a catch-up...

"Scott Aukerman returns to the Nerdist to talk about the turning his podcast Comedy Bang Bang into a TV show, how he came up with the idea and having the President on. He also teases the new season of Comedy Bang and Bang and the Mr. Show reunion!"

[no nerdist.com link just yet. we'll let the internet behind-the-scenes monkeys do their thing, it's coming, it's coming...]

Nerdist Podcast #636: Jemaine Clement and +Taika Waititi
11th February 2015

Do not, do NOT, ask me what the hell happened here or how this latest episode managed to pass me by. It's been a bit of a distracting week, what with waiting on Badge Sale alerts for +Comic-Con International to report on for the SDCC G+ Community, biting into my already erratic sleep pattern, and I usually have an alert set up, letting me know when new Nerdist episodes have been posted - must've completely sailed clean past me. Forgive me? I promise, I won't let it happen again. (Unless I do. Or I get trapped under a bus and I can't quite reach my iPhone through the wreckage. Or I get drunk and I forget. Look. I'm only human.)

Anyway: Jemaine and Taika. Enjoy!

"Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi chat with Chris and Matt about doing comedy back in New Zealand, and Jemaine talks a bit about Flight of the Conchords and working too much. They also talk about the making of their new movie What We Do in the Shadows!"

Nerdist Podcast #634: David Cross
6th February, 2015

Another returnee (last on, around this time, in 2012 http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/nerdist/Nerdist_156_-_David_Cross.mp3)... but it's not like you can interview somebody new every 'pod every time, not with a three-a-week schedule. And, frankly, David Cross is a joy so it's a pleasure to hear him back with the boys. Enjoy!

"David Cross returns to the podcast and talks to Chris, Matt and Jonah about the new Virgin Airlines safety video, accidentally getting booked to do stand up at a religious school and bringing back Mr. Show. He also talks about his new film and directional debut HITS!"

Nerdist Podcast #632: Paul Williams and +tracey jackson
2nd February, 2015

It is always a pleasure to hear Paul Williams on the 'pods - that's probably why this charming and fascinating man is back for a third helping. And he's brought a friend, too, how wonderful. (Boy, that sounded patronising. Sorry, Tracey.) Press Play and let's sink into to it...

"Paul Williams is back for a three-peat, along with friend Tracey Jackson! Paul and Tracey talk about how they met in the early '80s and about their new book 'Gratitude and Trust'. They also talk about getting sober, realizing what is important in life, and how to be the best person you can possibly be!"

Nerdist Podcast #631: 5th Anniversary Show!
30th January 2015

A little slow on the posting of this one, I apologise - hey, I'm a busy boy too, y'know - but hopefully the sheer loveliness of this Fifth Year Of 'Pods celebration will be enough to quench your appetite. Bon appetite!

"It's the 5th anniversary of The Nerdist! Chris, Jonah and Matt do a live podcast at NerdMelt Showroom to celebrate. Chris' mom, Kyle and Katie join in for a bit too!"

Nerdist Podcast #626: +Rainn Wilson Returns
19th January, 2015

Yay! It's always fun to have one of the highlights from 'pods past return to the mic and just slot right in with the groove of the boys - I definitely count Rainn Wilson as one of those guests that could easily be a natural fourth member of the team. This is gonna be good...

"The amazing Rainn Wilson returns to the Nerdist! He chats with Chris, Matt and Jonah about kids today watching videos of people play video games, Chipotle burritos and life after The Office. They also talk about their favorite fast food pizza and his new show Backstrom!"

[nerdist.com link to follow. it's probably fallen down the back of the sofa or something, bare with us...]

Nerdist Podcast #641: Brian Cox and +Eric Idle
23rd February, 2015

Yay! My all-time favourite ex-member of D:Ream and 'that bloke who starred in that movie with Kevin Kline that time (twice)', join forces for a chinwag with two nerds who can blag science with the best of them (+Matthew Mira more than most, fascinated as he is with that there space... stuff). And they're British, which makes them doubly cute, at NPH demonstrated at the +Oscars. Hey, we don't make the rules, people, that's just the way it is.

"Physicist Brian Cox chats with Chris and Matt about what made him want to get into science, his views on extraterrestrial life in our galaxy and his upcoming tour the Infinite Monkey Cage Live. Eric Idle also sits in and talks about how they met, his views on science and they all discuss different theories for what the universe is!"

Nerdist Podcast #639: Simon Helberg
18th February, 2015

If there's not discussion about Dr. Horrible in this podcast, I'm going to feel terribly cheated.

"Simon Helberg chats with Chris and Jonah about getting the role on Big Bang Theory, working so hard he lost 15 pounds and differentiating himself from his character on TV. He also talks about making his new movie We’ll Never Have Paris based on a true story of him and his wife!"

Nerdist Podcast #637: +Ari Shaffir
14th February, 2015

Seeing as I'm not from L.A., that I've barely visited L.A. and I certainly haven't been to The Comedy Store there, I'm not too familiar with Mr. Shaffir or his work (although he does look bloody familiar, maybe I've seen him on something in passing and not twigged). Either way, isn't this what a conversation podcast is all about, right? Listening, learning about people? Well, alright then - let's do this thing...

"Comedian Ari Shaffir chats with Chris and Matt about their early days of comedy in Los Angeles, all the crazy stuff he has seen being a regular at The Comedy Store, and why he is no longer religious. He also talks about his newest special Paid Regular and his new TV show This Is Not Happening!"

Nerdist Podcast #635: +Jeff Bridges #3
10th February, 2015

Have you heard Jeff's relaxation recording, The Sleeping Tapes? Oh, it's magical. You start off, wondering what the holy hell you're listening to and then BAM! (or, should I say, very relaxed shush!) it suddenly strikes you that you are being lulled to sleep by The Dude. Who wouldn't find that divine?

"Jeff Bridges just can't get enough of the Nerdist! He returns for a third time to talk about the books he created from pictures on set, the pictures he took for Seventh Son and how he makes long interview days fun. He also talks about his new sleeping tapes and his role in Seventh Son. And everyone has a relaxing meditation break!"

Nerdist Podcast #633: Pauly Shore
4th February, 2015

Go figure. I'd have thought a shameless self-promotor like Shore would've had a Google+ profile... No such luck. He is the kind of guy that will show up in the most random of places and remind everybody, first, what a massive, globe-straddling star he was for those fleeting moments, and second, just how tuned in to his sense of comedy he really is. He'll show up, well, at podcasts like this, I suppose...

"Pauly Shore talks to Chris and Matt about growing up among legendary comedians in +The Comedy Store - La Jolla, Chris and Pauly remember their early days at +MTV and his movies such as Biodome, Encino Man and more. They also talk about Pauly’s documentary Pauly Shore Stands Alone and his podcast Pauly Shore's Interested!"

Nerdist Podcast #630: +Cold War Kids
28th January, 2015

I've been sharing these posts left, right and centre, desperately trying to let more people know about the Community, and I know that some of you have been doing so, too. D'you know who hasn't shared any of the posts? Anyone from Nerdist, and certainly none of the guests, either. Here's hoping that those lovely +Cold War Kids will finally be the exception...

"Nathan Willett and Matt Maust of Cold War Kids talk to Chris and Jonah about being on tour, what they do in the endless hours on the road and how they became a band. They also play a couple songs off their newest album Hold My Home!"

Nerdist Podcast #629: +Nick Kroll #3
26th January, 2015

No community intro for this one? Well, that's because - and this is a touch embarrassing - I've not actually heard the first two appearances of Mr. Kroll and, even worse, I'm not entirely familiar with his work. Hey, some people haven't seen Star Wars, y'know!

EDIT: glad to see I'm not the only one. How many followers does he have for his Google+ account? Three. Hmmm...

"Nick Kroll returns for a three-peat! He and Matt talk about how they get confused for each other a lot, filming the last season of his TV show The Kroll Show and their views on the OJ Simpson trial. Nick also remembers living in The Oakwood apartments one pilot season, Matt talks about his weight loss and why Chris doesn’t need to sleep!"

Nerdist Podcast #627: Bill Gates
22nd January, 2015

There must be a dream - a wet dream, even - that, when you start a podcast called The Nerdist, you will get to interview some pretty obvious candidates. Adam West? Done. +Buzz Aldrin? Naturally. Larry Page? Achievement Unlocked. But, top of the tree has to be the father icon of all nerds: Bill Gates. And now Chris has landed that whale, too. What's left? Has he done Wozniak yet?!

"Personal computing icon turned philanthropist Bill Gates has finally made it to the Nerdist! Chris, Matt, and Jonah caught up with Bill in Seattle to talk about how the digital revolution is turning your phone into a debit card, Bill’s earliest memories of the computer revolution, and how difficult it is to get a whole world behind eradicating disease. They also discuss the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and this year's annual Gates Foundation Letter!

And as a special add-on to the podcast this week, Chris and crew spoke with +Jay Wegner – director of the Gates Foundation’s polio eradication efforts and former CDC epidemiologist – and Julie Sutherland, director of program-related investments at the foundation. They talk about why improving global health is much more complicated than just throwing money at a problem, and if the former epidemiologist is afraid of zombies."
