Hardwick has it dialed.

Rating: ★★★★★

What a career! What Chris Hardwick has built with Nerdist and all of the associated aspects of his career post KROQ and MTV days is nothing less than inspiring. The recent episode with Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode, the Daniel Craig episode from a year or two back, the Shirley Manson episode -- diverse guests, different types of chemistry, all kinds of insights, plus the genuine curiosity and fandom from Hardwick and his team make this an essential subscription.

Not so into this lately

by Mary82345 on Jun 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I am a long-time listener and the first 200-250 episodes were exactly what I loved about the show. I have continued listening and really given it a fair shot but the recent Talking with Chris Hardwick episodes aren't really the same podcast. They have lost the intimacy and appeal of a long form conversation. The guests have become more guarded. It's like reading a magazine interview now.Also, Matt and Jonah were very important personalities that balanced well with Chris. The podcast has lost it's magic for me without them. I understand it can't be the same and am thrilled for everyone's success. But for me, I will look for hostfuls and skip the rest.

Do I need a review? ITS AWESOME

I love the long form interviews. It's been in my feed since way back. I miss the hostfulls, but I totally get why they don't happen as much.

Superb interview/comedy show

by JTWNSC on Jun 16, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Superb interview/comedy show that ranks as the best of any podcast. Much is due to Chris Hardwick's excellent hosting & interviewing skills, clearing having fun while bringing out great conversations among his many guests. The stand alone episodes with his friends/co-hosts Matt Mira & Jonah Ray are equally fun, as they deliver some classic comedy along with some insightful reveals. The very best podcasting has to offer.

I discovered the Nerdist almost 2 years ago, since then I have listened to all 800+ episodes. I feel that what Chris Hardwick has created and done with his creation is truly amazing and I would recommend this podcast to anybody who is interested in learning more about the comedians, actors and musicians that they love. Everyone has their likes and dislikes, I personally cannot get enough of the conversations with comedians or actors and the Hostfuls (guest free podcasts) with Chris, Matt and Jonah are always fantastic. However I'm not a huge music fan so I the find the podcasts with musicians to be a bit repetitive as a lot of the same topics and experiences are rehashed (what's it like being on the road, how do you come up with your music). But that's me! I completely understand that most people are way more into music than I am and would love to delve deeper into the artists mind frame. Chris also has a tendency to get very psychological and deep and cover a lot of the same self help topics. Which again there is nothing wrong with that! But if you are binge listening to the 800 + episodes be prepared for a bit of redundancy. If it weren't for the last year and a half I would easily give the Nerdist 5 stars. Today's Nerdist podcast is a victim of its own success however. Matt and Jonah have largely moved on to their own careers and are rarely heard now. Without them Chris is left driving the podcast and guiding the conversation, when he is one on one with a guest it simply isn't as much fun as when Matt and Jonah are there. Nobody can replace them but maybe it's time to bring in a new sidekick? The Podcast also dropped from 3 episodes a week to one last year, although the newest implementation is to post Chris's new TV show as a podcast so there are 2 a week. These new episodes are essentially a conversational long form late night show. While a good tv show, the podcast Verizon is not the same as a normal episode, the guest's are way to "on" in front of a live audience and Chris is in super host mode so overall it feels even less natural. Still, I feel like a part of the Nerdist family, every family is dysfunctional in some way, but at the end of the day you love it just the same.

Good stuff

Label TWCH or create a different feed

The nerdist is an amazing podcast and I have enjoyed it for quite a while, great talks with people that you don't find elsewhere. TWCH is also a fun show but it is definelty made for TV and has a different feel to it, It is still Chris and as such is fun and interesting BUT - TWCH episodes are not the same as the podcast, don't get me wrong both are great and I like them, but they are not the same product. Please stop hiding the TWCH episodes, either label them or pull them out into their own podcast feed, I come to The Nerdist Podcast expecting a certain product, if I'm going to be getting something else I'd like to know up front. Keep Up the AMAZING WORK!

Lately they're just replaying some show they've taped for television Talking With Chris Hardwick or something like that. I had really gotten used my weekly doses of the regular podcast which was wonderful because it was Chris and the guest, one on one, having deeper conversations.

This is my #1 favorite podcast. In fact it's the reason I listen to any others. No one can talk with a guest and get such great stores without feeling like they are pushing a guest like Hardwick does.

Chris "The Talker" Hardwick is a charming and entertaining interviewer of other humans. On those occasions, which used to be quite plentiful, that he is joined by Matt, Jonah, or both, the show is even better. Although you can now catch him on several television shows as he slowly Seacrests himself, this is where all of the shenanigans that lead to the polished performer began. Matt and Jonah are doing pretty well too, and they are both funny and enjoyable (whether they hate each other or not). I have listened to every episode, and have never been disappointed.

Chris is amazing interviewer! Nerd culture, science, comedy and burritos all tied into a great conversation.

Excellent Ride

by LAEdler on Apr 15, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

It doesn't matter who the guests are Chris manages to make them interesting. Some folks have written that Chris talks about himself; that's called the give and take of actual conversation. It makes the guest understand that this podcast isn't a strait up interview, and it make the show more interesting because of it. I LOVE THIS PODCAST! Thank you, Chris! I am actually learning a lot from the show, but also from your technique.
