I also had dreams of chasing tornado’s, alas it’s they’re also my greatest fear.. David says: December 13, 2013 at 4:58 pm Thanks for introducing me to Lindi Ortega. I really like her music and the interview was great. One of my favorite parts about the Nerdist is listening to a person I don’t know and then coming out of the podcast enjoying their work. Thanks! Stan says: December 10, 2013 at 6:28 pm @Ben Lindi has a song about murdering someone and burying his body in a cornfield, another one about committing suicide and getting locked out of Heaven, and another one about sleeping with a dead body. So yeah. You think that topic is too dark? Lindi was born in darkness. Molded by it. She’s like the Bane of country music. Except she’s not like a giant muscley dude. But yeah. You get my point. Ben says: December 10, 2013 at 4:44 pm (not sure if my comment before got posted) bottomline: she is great and maybe consider the story of Tim Samaras for a tornado chasing song. Ben says: December 10, 2013 at 4:34 pm First, awesome. Been listening to her Little Red Boots album (So Sad) and can’t wait to hear the other two. Second, not sure if it is too dark, but for a tornado song you could tackle the story of Tim Samaras (via nat geo http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/11/table-of-contents ). I was thinking of the Drive-By Truckers song Tornadoes as you were talking about it. Theirs isn’t too scientific though. Anyways, Chris, thanks for introducing to me an amazing singer. Nichole says: December 10, 2013 at 12:40 pm I had a brief phase where I wanted to be a Tornado chaser (this was after Twister, mind you ) :p chris hardwick says: December 10, 2013 at 9:34 am @Mike: you’re dumb. Chad says: December 10, 2013 at 8:16 am Neko Case has a great metaphorical love song told from a tornado’s point of view. Check out “This Tornado Loves You”. CandyAppleFox says: December 10, 2013 at 7:51 am Goodness me 🙂 so gorgeous… loved the song x x Mike says: December 10, 2013 at 7:13 am Skip. Stan says: December 9, 2013 at 5:03 pm You guys didn’t talk about the fact that you’re both Philosophy majors! Because that would be such a riveting conversation. Raulie Huevos says: December 9, 2013 at 4:42 pm After hearing Chris mention her on the Podcast forever ago, I went out and bought “Little Red Boots” and have been a fan ever since. Her new album “Tin Star” soooo good. Unfortunately I missed her recent Bay Area show.

Mike says: December 9, 2013 at 2:54 pm How cool! I used to be friends with Lindi on LiveJournal way back in the days when LJ was still a thing. I listened to some of her music back then and really dug it, and it’s so nice to see her succeed and now collide with my favorite podcast. Can’t wait to listen.
