Introducing The Questionauts

The time has come. The Nerdist Podcast empire is expanding. It is official.

The newest addition to the Nerdist International Conspiracy is called “The Questionauts.” It’s the creation of Chris’ friends Aaron Hilliard and Justin Heimberg, who claim to be the last remaining active results of a secret government project during the Cold War in which hundreds of men memorized billions of facts in order to preserve all human knowledge in the event of a Soviet nuclear strike. As a result, they can answer any question on any topic, from science to art, history, religion, even personal relationships.

Or they’re a couple of know-it-all comedy writers with an amazing ability to answer any questions you throw at them and make you laugh a lot in the process. Either way, you’re going to want — NEED — to listen to this podcast, which will launch in the coming weeks.

And you can be part of the show, too. Aaron and Justin are putting out the call for questions to answer for the debut episodes of the podcast, and here’s how you can contribute:

Tweet your questions to @questionauts.

Go to to see sample questions and submit yours.

Ask your question on the Questionauts Podcast Facebook page.

Call and leave a voicemail at (414) 60-INFO-8 (that’s (414) 604-6368) with your question (and you might hear your own voice on the podcast).

And then await further instructions, which we’ll give you as soon as the first podcast is ready for your consumption. In the meantime, get your questions to the guys and prepare to be amazed or something.

    @Marek Yeah, Nerdist was my first podcast then Doug Loves Movies, WTF, SklarBro Country, And now I listen to pretty much every (funny) podcast out there, and MBMBAM is slowly becoming my favorite out of all them.

  2. Marek says:

    Ryan, I ws going to say the same thing. Call me pessimistic, but I don’t think it’ll be as funny as MBMBAM. The McElroys are just too hilarious. But I’ll listen in to see if I’m wrong.
