JE Smith says: September 29, 2011 at 1:17 pm Really enjoyed this episode, Riki. MGG is always a fun actor to watch, got a kick out hearing him as the voice of Jimmy Olsen in the recent SUPERMAN ALL-STAR movie from DC. Emily says: September 29, 2011 at 11:04 am Love Matthew Gray Gubler, this was great Robin says: September 28, 2011 at 10:48 am What a fun and fascinating guy. That was a great conversation. Now I’m kicking myself for not going to the show at UNH. (Though I seem to remember having a scheduling conflict anyway. :-\ ) Having an entire evening of those stories must have been a blast! Here’s hoping he does more of them and comes back to the northeast so I don’t miss out again. Chantou says: September 28, 2011 at 4:06 am what a good interwiew! i’m a funny french girl! i understood just some words, cause he talks very fast! he is so crazy! so cute too! Oh My Gube! Karen says: September 27, 2011 at 8:52 pm Great questions, great answers. Thank you for letting the guest actually TALK — so rare — kudos Riki! Was already a fan of MGG, but now? WOW. He’s totally awesome, so much talent!! Such a great voice, too. I could listen to him talk all day. Very impressed with his authenticity and humor. Amazing! Thank you for such a wonderful interview. More! Christine says: September 27, 2011 at 4:38 pm Riki, please bring Gube to do something with Garfunkel & Oates. I’m soo happy that he did this with you especially because the questions and answers are soo much better!! This was great to listen to! Will you marry me, Gube? lol you are the fucking greatest, Gube. I hope you get to be a guest star or something for Larry David. Great podcast dudes. Lindsey D says: September 27, 2011 at 3:36 pm Of the plethora of media offered by Nerdist industries I am a most faithful listener to yours and the flagship Nerdist podcast. I really enjoyed this interview. I know Matthew was concerned about sounding “douche-y” but what I kept hearing from him is that he is so stunned and grateful for all of the experiences in his whole life, not jsut his career and it wouldn’t matter if he had chose cement mixing- this would be a happy and ebullient man. =) I have not seen Criminal Minsd but I am now an avid fan of Matthew’s.

Regards from Caracas Venezuela. Jeremy says: September 27, 2011 at 2:17 pm What an interesting dude. I think it’s funny how some people kind of stumble toward something without realizing that’s what they’re doing the whole time. Amanda says: September 27, 2011 at 10:31 am So good! I love listening to your interviews, Riki, even more so when you have guests like Matthew, whose work I love. Keep up the great work!
