    Make it Happen.

  2. John Book says:

    I agree, the podcast here is 64kbps. Please return it to 128kbps. Thanks.

  3. KeithTalent says:

    Great to have MATES back, too bad they had to adopt the shitty sound quality of The Nerdist, which has always been abysmal. Oh well, can’t have it all!

    Welcome back M&T!

  4. hannah says:

    So glad to have Mates back…but is Europe-ian really gone??!!!

  5. tekatomon says:

    I remember when Big O and Dukes used to do this as a segment on the radio. Although they called it “snacks of the Round table.” looking forward to hearing how you folks do it.

  6. kt says:

    Oh Happy Day!

    Super happy to have MATES back and super happy it’s a part of Nerdist.

    The Hershey Kiss was a nice palate cleanser after that disgusting Jelly Belly whateverthefuck flavor pudding from 6 weeks ago. Ugh, I dry heaved just listening to that one. Ick.

    I missed this podcast so much.

  7. Terri says:

    Ok. I can see Magic being peed on and crapped on, but Tom the CAV Cavanagh no way. Not Tommy NO!

  8. Manfred Yon says:

    Thank you guys! Like Pop My Culture, I wanted so much to listen this but for some reason I couldn’t get it in the wild. But now, ka-ching!

  9. Guy Frowney says:

    What’s with the spoiler? I prefer being surprised by what snack they are PERing.

  10. ChrisM70 says:

    If you are new to MATES and the PER System™ (Pick, Eat, Rate),
    here is a handy guide to the early episodes:

  11. Sayla says:

    Gosh, so much squeeing over this news. I’m so, so happy.

  12. Lindsay says:

    This is so exciting! I’ve been missing my weekly MATES podcasts for so long! Now when do Mike and Tom get to be on the Nerdist podcast?

  13. Kari2171 says:

    Nerdist is quickly taking over my ipod. All you need to absorb now is NPR, WTF, and ESPN. (One of these things is not like the others…)

  14. Michelle says:

    Glad you’re back!

  15. Donald says:

    I get it, you had to have a diva month. Snarky comments, blatant racism, and hors d’oevures never had such a douchebaggery lacking month. Welcome back.

  16. Shepherd says:

    This has warmed the very cockles of my heart. And I know they’re not cockles.

  17. StrikerObi says:

    So glad MATES is back and on the Nerdist network! I’ve been waiting for a new episode to view (I know I’m not a viewer) for weeks!

  18. Alica Smith says:


  19. John Book says:

    I am a faithful viewer (and I know I’m not a viewer) of this great podcast and… is this what it means when something reaches “Level 42”, and with podcast 42 to boot? Anyway, if this is the new home for it… it doesn’t matter, I’m just glad it’s back. I always anticipate when voices are slowed down after the mention of the snack, and then the synthesized horn comes in. BAM! BAM! BAM!

  20. Walter says:

    Not that this hasn’t said before me, but just to reiterate it, it’s so awesome that Nerdist picked up MATES. Ratings? 10. The Nerdist-MATES combo is a total 10.

  21. Cameron says:

    Steam shits…err ships. Good stuff.

  22. Conrad Stosz says:

    I can finally stop shouting “MIKE CHECK!”

  23. Delucian says:

    Ah yes. I remember when Big O & Dukes ( started doing this 5 or 6 years ago. Epic.

  24. Paige says:

    This show is brilliant. Thank you.

  25. Chris says:

    I can’t believe my favorite podcast got picked up on my other favorite podcast network. It’s truly a great day in the world of nerds and snacks. And it’s about time there was a new episode, I’m sure Ian needs the work. Not to mention Olaf.

  26. Willy says:

    yes yes yes yes!!!!! so glad to have MATES on the nerdist!
    for those you you who haven’t heard the show, i’m jealous of you since you have hours and hours to catch up on

  27. CyKlops says:

    So glad to have MATES back! The viewers would like to thank Nerdist for helping to make it possible. PEW PEW PEW Stormtroopers hittin the floor!

  28. Tom Steele says:

    Finally, you add a podcast I don’t have to catch up on first!
    This viewer (and I know I’m not a viewer) thanks you.

  29. Daniel A says:

    Yes!!! 6 long weeks are finally over.
