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 newly-released season 7 (and all seasons) of "Escape to the Chateau" is on Peacock now!

Time to call it quits

I’ve listened to this show since the first year. Silly conversations with Matt, Jonah and guests, host-ful podcasts, Cringe Harrison Ford, Tom York, Jonah bullying Matt, Matt whining, Matt's left handed guitars, Jonah Raydio, Nerdist, Bowling, at midnight, ATOS, talk soup etc. When the podcast went from fun conversation with friends about goofy topics to comedic theory and the science of Hollywood it lost me. No more Matt and Jonah is a significant difference. The show would be unbearable without Chris. Unfortunately the show is boring without Matt and/ or Jonah. It was good while it lasted. Enjoy your burrito.

One of the best interview podcasts!

Chris deserves a spot on the Mt. Rushmore of podcast hosts! His conversations are super chill and entertaining!
