Nerdist News Talks Back Makes Its Triumphant Return

It may seem hard to believe, but the year 2020 has some good news for you for a change. Today, we here at Nerdist are thrilled to announce that our series Nerdist News Talks Back will return on our official YouTube channel! Beginning this Monday, June 22, fans can join Dan Casey, host of Nerdist News and  Explainiac, along with a rotating panel of experts, luminaries, and celebrities from all across the pop culture universe to abandon character limits and dig into fascinating discussions of everything (and anything) that pop culture fans care about.

Past guests of Nerdist News Talks Back have included such geek royalty as Taika Waititi, Simon Pegg, Rick & Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, the cast of The Magicians, the cast of Krypton, the cast of Sorry to Bother YouStranger Things producer Shawn Levy, voice actor extraordinaires Tara Strong and Yeardley Smith, Daredevil and True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll, Rawson Thurber, Boots Riley, Erik Oleson, Evil Dead’s Bruce Campbell, and even that “science guy,” Bill Nye. And there will be even more exciting names to add to that list very soon, now that the show is back.

The now-weekly show will air live on Nerdist’s YouTube Channel, and will stream simultaneously on the Geek & Sundry YouTube Channel as well as Geek & Sundry’s Twitch Channel, where fans can join along in the conversation through live chat. Episodes will also be available as VOD on all three channels post the initial airing. It’s been a year since Nerdist News Talks Back began its long hiatus, but as Hannibal Lecter once told Clarice Starling, “Good things come to those who wait.”

Nerdist News Talks Back returns Monday, June 22, at 2pm PT. To join the conversation, fans should follow Nerdist on  Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and subscribe to the  Nerdist YouTube Channel.
