Coming up this week on the Nerdist Podcast Network (subject, as usual, to the vagaries of scheduling, taping, and technical stuff):
On the Nerdist Podcast, physicist Hakeem Oluseyi sits down with Chris to talk about science, learning, and his Science Channel show Outrageous Acts of Science. He’s a pretty fascinating guy, largely self-taught, with a lot of insight on the problems with how the education system deals with students who don’t fit in; and you’ll hear talk about the unexplainable, plasma propulsion on the sun, the Higgs boson, and lots more.
Actor Julian Dennison will do Today We Learned, promoting his new movie, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the new one from Taika Waititi; Veep showrunner David Mandel will talk about that great show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, SNL, and more on The Writers Panel.
Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl and former WWE head writer Brian Gewirtz are scheduled to visit The Jonah Keri Podcast; Grant’s going to break down soccer and LeBron James’ triumph, and Brian will offer insight about the pro wrestling world and talk about his memorabilia collection, which ought to be good. Greg and Lozo will surely be talking NHL Draft and the mysteries of Buffalo on Puck Soup, comedian and animator Casey Jane Ellison will be on Love, Alexi, and…
And more, of course. We always say that, but it’s true — in the last week alone, we surprised you with a new Mike and Tom Eat Snacks and a new Jonah Raydio, double the Will You Accept This Rose?, and a bunch of great guests we couldn’t tell you about in the preview. If you want to make sure you don’t miss anything, first go to the Nerdist Podcast Network homepage and Facebook page on a frequent basis, and then subscribe to the shows you want, which should be all of them. Exciting, it is.
