EP. 25 — Who Is The Nerdist?
It seems like every time you click refresh on the Nerdist website there is new cool stuff happening. What started as a blog and transitioned into a podcast is now a television pilot, a live performance space at Meltown Comics, a podcasting network, and even a book! Chris Hardwick is here to try to discuss all of that as well as his partnership with Geek Chic and the economic difficulties of doing a podcast live. We even get Chris’ opinion on our new Earwolf Live App and a stellar suggestion for a new, simpler term to replace “download.” Listen to the episode and, as always, let us know what you think over on the forums!
