Just got clued in to The Nerdist. Funny funny stuff. Hosted by Chris Hardwick of Singled Out and Web Soup [G4's little brother to Talk Soup/The Soup].
Got clued into it by a reference to Hardwick interviewing Alison Brie in the comments of an article announcing Brie was cast in the next Scream movie, went to the podcast in ITunes and it's 'listeners also liked' blurb had most of my current casts [Carolla, Fiztdog, Maron]
Had a live show with Adam Savage of Mythbusters where Adam was talking about the creation of Envision.
The host made a crack about 'too bad they didn't envision the global market crash' to crickets . . .
"Aaaand Health Care. . . Rape and Crib Death, goodnight ladies and gentlemen."
- nice recovery
Also had Adam talking about his days at ILM, and particularly to FX guys anticipating getting their marching orders on 'fightin' Yoda' they get the screenplay and it says, simply 'Yoda fights in a manner that is indescribable
. . . FUUUuuUuuuuuuuuu
Adam also advises, Star Wars Eps 2 and 3 can be salvaged [not 1, nothing can salvage 1] by setting your DVD to French with subtitles.
A big plus is Hardwick's facility with voices, he has the 'didactic nerd voice' a passable cockney, a good aussie, and one of my favorite schticks [employed by the likes of Oswalt and Cross, the 'booming songster singing about the present topic' voice [think Cross' 'Henderson Valley Eggs, YOU'RE GONNA LOVE OUR EGGS!!!!']
