Alton Brown’s Podcast Joins the Nerdist Podcast Network

alton-brown-300x200So, Alton Brown, author, host, chef, commentator, motorcyclist, and all-around brilliant guy, posted this on his website:

Our podcast is going to be part of the famed Nerdist network of podcasts. We’re joining up with Chris Hardwick and his gang because they’re swell folks and seem to always be having a lot of fun and fun is good. So, the Alton Browncast will be available at and on itunes as well as the new which is coming to an internet near you.

All right, then, let’s summarize: ALTON BROWN’S PODCAST IS COMING TO THE NERDIST PODCAST NETWORK! That. Is. Awesome.

The first episode will be here in a few weeks — Alton’s recording the episodes now. You will want to be ready, and we’ll have all the information here and so will the man himself at his website and on Twitter and Facebook. Can’t wait….

    Alton, occasionally you mention you would like inquiries other than food, here it goes…
    How do you feel about Crowd Funding and how do you think it will effect the Food World?

    My husband and I were held hostage by our car for a 14 hour road trip; to get by, we listened to your podcasts. They were simply brilliant! Listening to Alex then Giada, was wonderful. The questions you pose move the conversation in a direction of exploration of the guest, so effortlessly. During the Giada podcast, the beauty discussion was stirring. When the conversation turned and the remark concerning her past, how she is perceived, etc, was the best part of the interview. I also noticed the difference in her when she speaks of her past, and to hear this being discussed was gratifying. Finally, my ideas were put to rest..

    Your style is simple, candid, ingenuous, and honest. Thank you for opening up a world I already adored.

    Loved the interview with the outstanding Sandy Waddell. I have had her cheese straws (I was at the right place at exactly the right time) but have not tried the cheese dots. Something to look forward to. Hope to see her off-Broadway next time I am in Gotham!

    AWESOME!!! I’m a huge fan of Alton’s and I can’t wait to be Browncast fan :)

  5. Moonshadow Girl says:

    I have never heard a podcast before, let alone subscribe one. AB is the one and only reason I am signing up! (Haven’t looked around yet, any chance Neil deGrasse Tyson is around? I’d stick around for him too.) #justageekygirl

  6. klenske says:

    I have been awaiting this podcast for months. Now it’s coming onto the best network ever? I could die now. Except then I wouldn’t be able to listen.

  7. Lou Lange says:

  10. Ross says:

    Where are those nitro pills…? I am ecstatic. I’ve wondered why someone as funny, geeky & smart as AB didn’t have his own podcast.

  11. Nicole Young says:

    Geeks and food, two of my favorite things! Can’t wait for this to launch :)

  12. Xeroz says:

  14. Taylor M. says:

    Can I just sell my soul to this network? I mean seriously, so many things I love under one metaphorical roof, I’ll never have to step outside again.

  15. Jonathan says:

    Awesome! Next, we need to get The Dana Gould Hour on Nerdist. :)

  16. Excuse me while I go break the world record for most back flips performed back to back.
