Nerdist Podcast: Damon Lindelof (TWCH)

Damon Lindelof‘s professional writing career hasn’t quite hit the two decade mark, but he’s already got enough experience to last multiple lifetimes! Or multiple sideways if you want to include his blockbuster co-creation, Lost, and his critically acclaimed yet criminally unwatched HBO series, The Leftovers. Last Sunday night on AMC’s Talking with Chris Hardwick, Damon was the guest of our founder, Chris Hardwick. In today’s special episode of the Nerdist podcast, we’re sharing the extended and extended conversation between Chris and Damon!

To start off the show, Chris shares the story of how he and Damon met for the first time, and the absolutely bizarre way it revolved around The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman. From there, Damon shared his backstory as a TV executive and the fandom that inspired him to become a writer himself. Additionally, Damon speaks about Undressed, his first television gig for MTV, which was also his first time as a member of a writer’s room.

Among the many things that led him down his path as a writer, Damon cites both the film and the television incarnations of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as the early days of interacting with showrunners on the internet. It’s a long chat, so strap in!

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.
