Kind of covers it, donât you think?
When I say that, Iâve heard the response âwell guilty until proven innocent didnât work so this is betterâ or some crap like that. Really? So just throw the baby out with the bathwater? To hell with all of it as long as whatever we put in place doesnât hurt the group of people I belong to? Yeah that makes sense. Guess Iâm a woman hater for having the opinion that itâs entirely possible for women to be vindictive and lie so itâs wrong to immediately denounce someone who is accused of something like this without hearing more.
I for one am a huge fan of Harwicks and I will continue to support him and his podcast.
Its so sad that we live in a world were some vague accusation can take someone down in a second. Hardwick is great, his podcast is great, and I don't believe for a second that he has done anything worthy of such a bizarre backlash.
Great show, always positive, I stand with you 100%. Survive the Kangaroo Court.
I used to love the Nerdist podcast when Hardwick hosted it. Jumped over here when he left because i didnât know why he left. Go read Chloe Dykstraâs Rose Colored Glasses over on Medium. Like, right now. Go. #IBelieveChloe
I really like Chrisâs interview style. He treats his guests with kindness and real interest, bringing out the best in his guests. I like him as a person and he has real integrity. Comics have lots of demons, he seems on top of his, and left the big ones in the past, but knows that he isnât perfect and hasnât been. That makes him a better interviewer as we all havenât been our best selves through life.
You pretty much outright confirmed your exes claims when your official response was âyeah, well she cheated!â. I donât wanna support someone like you anymore
After the hostâs public victim-blaming non-apology, I no longer wonder why Matt Mira has been kept on the show for so long. Mystery solved. I believe Chloe.
Stay strong, Chris. This entire thing is a joke. Innocent until proven guilty. Thank a SJW by punching them in the face.
Best podcast ever! Iâm a huge fan and I wish the best for Chris
Normally Iâd give you a 3 star review but since the sjwâs are trying to take you out over an embellished story written by a bitter ex Iâll give you the extra two stars and make this a 5 Star review.
Long time listener of the podcast and I felt like Iâve grown to know Chris Hardwick in some small (albeit voyeuristic) way. I came to see him as a totally woke, love-able, sincere nerd who just wanted to make cool stuff with cool people. But after his ex girlfriend came forward about the mental, emotional, and sexual abuse she suffered behind closed doors, I realize I really never knew Chris Hardwick at all. In hindsight, it seems he is critical and judgmental of the people in his life and that can be heard in his interactions with Jonah and Matt, too. It might come from a place of love...but itâs destructive and clearly can get extreme. Iâm sure he actually is the loving, sincere nerd who just wants to make cool stuff, but Iâm now also sure heâs a manipulative, obsessive control freak with crippling addiction problems to not only alcohol but also work, sex and control. Heâs a talented man, but his demons have gotten the best of him. I hope heâs able to overcome them one day. Donât listen to this podcast unless you want your heartbroken, too.
Chris, bud, I know you wonât see this, but I believe you. I stand with you. And Iâm sorry that people are automatically blaming you for something you were never named in and never charged with. Please feel better
Innocent until proven guilty. Remember that SJWs
There have been accusations but no proof. Do not vilify some one based on an accusation.
You still have a supporter here man! Iâve heard both sides, and judging by what Iâve heard from your numerous TV, radio and podcast interviews and the things people say about you, I have to say I believe your story more. I am a supporter of the MeToo movement, and am happy that many predatory men are being purged from societyâs upper ranks. However, I am against a sweeping elimination of all successful men, simply for vengeance or out of scorn. I hope you and your family find a way out of this, and you are able to keep at least most of your reputation and work afterward.Love everything you do, man. Good luck to you.Sincerely,A fellow ID10T.
He seemed happy and grateful for his life. Now he just seems grasping and controlling. Peace out.
I honestly find it unbelievable how the world seems to vilify someone the moment another person releases claims like the oneâs made (passively) against Chris Hardwick. Everyone should have a voice and be able to come forward with facts and proof so that abusers can be dealt with properly. However, I find it ridiculous when random people make up their mind that someone is guilty after only hearing one side of the story. No one is perfect and most of us have things we hide from the world. I donât know how this culture of automatic guilt came about, but it seems counterintuitive to actually seeking the truth. I would question motives and seek further details before ever rushing to judgement on a situation like this. Why do so many people spend their mental energy bashing someone they donât know, have never met, and make massive assumptions about?
I enjoy listening to and watching Chris. I never miss an opportunity to watch him. I will always be a fan. Itâs a he said/she said incident. Until there is solid proof I will stand behind him
I am so disappointed I used to look up to this guy and then to find out heâs really a piece of garbage makes me rethink why I spent so many hours listening to his podcasts or watching his shows
Best bet is to move on. We donât owe any allegiance to celebrities.
I canât have someone who acted like this in my ears, brain or life. Not wasting anymore of my time on someone like this.
Piece of garbage.
Stopped listening months ago. Old and stale. Then the news came out and wanted to make sure I was unsubscribed as well.
I don't know how I will ever be able to listen to or look at Chris again after his denial of his abusive behavior towards Chloe Dykstra. Her voice is on so many episodes. It makes me sick.
You need to do a better job at explaining yourself for what you did and give a real apology.
I hope this piece of human refuse never gets anything good in life, ever again
I feel sick.ð¤¢ I thought he was one of the good ones. Enjoy your burrito...in jail hopefully.
So troubling that this kind of behavior goes on unchecked...weaponizing intimacy, such pain and destruction. Having been privy to this pain myself, and having been a fan for so long now, I am disgusted and horrified, beyond disappointed and heartbroken.
I originally stuck with this podcast because of the talent they were able to interview but I donât know that I ever truly enjoyed it because of CH. He has always seemed slightly emotionally abusive of his cohosts even though it was played off as âcomedicâ and âfunâ and the people heâs nicest too are the celebrities who allow him to âinterviewâ them. I will not be listening to any more episodes and I will be doing so happily.
Great and loving and is forgiving. Any true listener knows he regrets his past
Thatâs great. When do you think I can have sex with her again?
Apple take down this nasty womanizer abuser that we all thought was a good man.So sad
I spent hundreds of hours listening to this podcast. All that time I was alone and this felt like someone to listen to, like friends. And now all of that is gone because Chris Hardwick is a monster.
Donât listen to the ramblings of such a twisted and egotistical person.
Always great discussions. But I won't be able to listen anymore knowing what I know about what he has been accused of. I hope enjoyed his burrito, because it's finished.
With things coming to light about Chris' character, I can no longer support the man I looked up to.
Delete your account.
When she cries during sex, that means please stop! You are at a point of being a rapists. But wow, you didnât pick up on that point. Thanks for the unfunny laughs and eat your burrito in prison!
Listened since episode 1. Unsubscribing today.
Chris hardwick is a terrible man
Wanna be a true real deal balla? callin the shots on the big Hollywood movies gettin your yogurt fed to you like you always dreamed? This podcast is 4 u baby! Diplomats wish they can chat like my man Chris Hardwick. Listen to it or be there ignorant to the key to life. Eat your burrito and be the man
Still love the show just wish the opening music was cut shorter
Iâve been a fan of Chris Hardwick since discovering Talking Dead a number of years back. Similarly, Jonah Ray since the MST3K reboot. Itâs only been in the past six months, though, that Iâve found the Nerdist / ID10T podcast, and Iâm thankful that I made the plunge.Chrisâ funny, easy-going way of engaging guests, which makes his TV show work so well, comes through in spades here in the Podcast (and I suppose it may have been honed in the early days of the podcast?). I was pleasantly surprised, though, by the many frank and honest discussions of mental health disorders, depression, anxiety, etc. that Chris and many of his guests engage in (the recent podcast with Howie Mandel is an excellent example) Theyâre very open, as well as very funny, talking about their own battles with mental health. As a parent struggling to understand mental illness in my own daughter, Iâve found this to be a huge source of comfort. And to think that I just came for some entertaining discussion of nerd culture!
Love how this is the anti-interview. It truly feels (and I believe this is part of Chrisâs charm as well as being an intention design) as if you are sitting around just chatting with a friend. Chris is so giving and thoughtful with his guests. He and Paul Rudd bonding over their dead dads (just joined that tribe myself a few months ago) was funny but also sweet. Talking about fears and insecurities with Kit Harrington and Allison Janney....itâs like he wants to genuinely learn about how people tick and if he can help them grow - all the better. Makes me want to hang out and have coffee with him.
