Welcome back to another special episode of the Nerdist Podcast! As you may have heard, Chris Hardwick recently launched his new talk show on AMC. Now, fans can catch the extended audio from each installment of Talking with Chris Hardwick as bonus episodes of the Nerdist podcast!
In the most recent episode, Chris was joined by Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, and Zach Woods. While that trio offered insight on the new season of their HBO comedy series, they stayed to chat far past the half hour mark you saw on TV. Get ready for over an hour of hilarity as Chris and his guests hold nothing back.
Among the topics on this show, Thomas and Zach speak about the happy accident that several cast members had previously worked together, as well as how they met each other in the NYC and Chicago comedy scenes. Thomas and Chris even commiserate about their last names being used against them in high school. Additionally, Zach relays his karate lessons at a Jewish community center, including an unfortunate accident while wearing his gee. Let’s just say that The Karate Kid may have misled the guys about what learning martial arts was actually like. Martin also looks back on his time on Freaks and Geeks, and his early improv experiences.
Make sure to watch Talking with Chris Hardwick Sunday nights at 11pm on AMC or on amc.com/talking! The extended audio will premiere as a podcast here every Friday after a new episode makes its AMC debut.
