It’s a two podcast week everyone! It seemed like front page news when I found out we’d be getting not one but two Nerdist Podcasts this week, so that’s where I’m starting this week’s Hardwatch, aka the weekly spot to find out all the happenings of Nerdist leader, Chris Hardwick.
First up on Tuesday, Josh Homme returns to the podcast, and he’s not alone. He is joined by the legendary Iggy Pop to talk about his new album Post Pop Depression and how Homme worked with him. In addition to the new news, the pair revisit some of the stories that have have followed Mr. Osterberg around for decades, so you will want to tune in for that trip down memory lane if nothing else.
The second podcast of the week will be the hilarious Melissa Rauch of The Big Bang Theory fame. Did you know she’s done a lot more than the role that has made her famous? Rauch sits down with Chris to talk about the new movie she and her husband wrote as well as her stand up career and so much more. The podcast will drop on the same day as The Bronze and that day is Friday. Make sure you download it!
Chris will also have four new episodes of @midnight to keep you laughing through the week. Whitney Cummings, Josh McDermitt, and Nick Youssef will be the guests on Monday night. Andy Richter, Kuala Vilaysack, and Drew Tarver take the podiums on Tuesday. Wednesday night will bring Lauren Lapkus, Kate Berlant, and John Early to the stage, and the week will finish up with Yassir Lester, Nick Thune, and Jenna Elfman.
If you think I’m burying the lead, I kind of am. You can also catch Chris on Talking Dead tonight where he sits down with Melissa McBride and Paul Feig to talk about tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead, “The Same Boat”. Oh, and there will be a surprise guest from the cast. You are not going to want to miss it.
As always, make sure you’re following Chris on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Snapchat!
