Science Explains Why Your Cat Keeps Knocking Stuff Over



  1. John Bishop says:

    That is truly good news, great job guys!

    I can honestly say that you, Mr. Hardwick, have inspired me to create a podcast of my very own. I really appreciate how you go over the process with other comedians on your show, and how you tell prospective stand-ups/podcasters to simply go out and do it, as there is no set path. Keep up the good work, and we’ll continue to enjoy our collective burrito.

  3. Josh from Europe says:

    (((d(–__–)b))) Congrats Chris. Your Podcast is my favourite one.

  4. andrei niscoveanu says:

    I dig it!

  5. Handy J says:

    Yes and Happy Tree Friends is #5 :/

  6. EruditeVixen says:

    I’m so glad! I’ve been listing for about six months now, and I’ve gotten my hubbins in on it too. I kind of feel like it’s more in line with our thinking and lifestyle than many other things in our cultural wasteland. While half my friends are moving to Seattle and becoming raw vegans and the other half are discovering PBR and meth…it’s nice to find a happy medium for the tricked out techies with obsessions that go beyond normal (see Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Simpsons…). Anyone who can throw out a random Simpsons reference that only the truly well-versed Simpsonite can get is worth listening to.


    PS….Ricky Gervais can SUCK IT! He is such a hateful little pug now. That stand up special almost made me cry. So he lost 25 lbs and now all he does is say how the overweight are disgusting and intone that they don’t deserve to live. I don’t know…I’m pretty awesome.

  7. Jonathan says:

    Pretty awesome!

    You totally turned me onto Doctor Who, by the way. I had no idea that show was so awesome! Thanks!

  8. Pat says:

    This has gotta be one of the humblest humblebrags ever. Congrats!

  9. Joseph Lyons says:

    How does Happy Tree Friends beat WTF with Marc Maron, and where’s Doug Loves Movies? !

    Congrats to you and all! That’s super great!

  11. Bill Cosby says:

    Oh, I thought you meant that the first Nerdist podcast was put on iTunes. How silly!

  12. paul says:

    Yaaaaay, Nerdist! And no matter what iTunes says, you’ll always the top comedy podcast to us. (To those wondering how to keep Nerdist up there, I believe iTunes rates according to # of downloads, comments, and ratings. You know what to do.)

  13. Jlewisbox says:

    Nice Work! Big O’ heap of Congrats!

  14. Does listening to it on help at all?

  15. Duncan says:

  20. Jonathan says:

    Love it! Congrats you guys you totally earned it!!!!

  21. John says:

    Awesome news, but I’m torn between my love this podcast and smodcast. Perhaps some sort of illicit podcast threesome is in order? (well again anyway, the cross podcast was great a while back). Congratulations , you guys are doing the lords work out there.

  22. Robin Burks says:

    Not bad… Not bad at all. Congratulations!

  23. Tyson says:

    Congratulations gentlemens. Love the podcast and looking forward to fellow Australianite Rove McManus being on the show.

  24. Three toes of Fury says:

    Woo Hoo! Well done sirs!!! That completes the first step of your master plan: dominate the communication channels.

    Next step is to infiltrate the food industry…we are mere months away from animatronic versions of Chris, Matt, and Jonah to be located at Taco Bell Drive Thru’s worldwide wishing passers thru to (dalek voice) “ENJOY YOUR BURRITO!!”.

    Finally, when the time is right, skynet will issue the command to the Nerdist Tacobot 3000’s worldwide to begin the enslavement of mankind.

  25. Susan says:

    CONGRATS!!! Now more can enjoy what we’ve already known for awhile!! Thanks for getting me back into the Doctor! I watched back in the 70-80’s when I was younger, but somehow missed the tardis on the new series. Barrelled thru seasons 1-5 with Netflix and Amazon to be ready for premiere on Saturday…..only to find out our cable package doesn’t include BBC America :-(. Thank goodnesss for Amazon, Impossible Astronaut ready for viewing today!! It’s burning a hole in my laptop waiting to be viewed!!!

  26. Wesley Marshall says:

    Yay!! A show I like and respect is getting recognition. Chris, Matt, and Jonah are the best #Noodlestories

  27. Steve Farrell says:

    About time!!!

  28. Brandan E says:

  29. Jim Simonetti says:

    That is awesome! You guys keep on getting better and better each week. I can’t wait till Littlefield Ny

  30. Josue Lara says:

    Salutations fellow nerds, long time listener of the podcast (love it like a fat kid loves doughnuts, wink wink Matt.) 1st time quementer. Just wondering if you had in your plans, any podcast that would be centered around gaming?. Could be a “hostful” or guest podcast, either one would be AMAZING (wink, wink Chris). Will continue listening faithfully, enjoy your [email protected]#!ing burrito.

  31. Keith says:

    Yeah! Only the best laughs/ minute ratio on the webs. Suck it Carolla. Congrats guys.

  32. Sawyer says:

    Is this the point where the hipsters jump off because it’s gone too mainstream, or simply brag about how they were listening before it was popular?
    Either way, Congratulations!

  33. Urosh says:


  34. sNeakie says:

    Hey Chris – Congrats! Been listening a lot lately and the ‘host-less’ (or ‘hostful’, can you tell I’m only on Eps. 60) shows are great! Keep it up.

  35. Randy says:

    Now it’s official, you have to be funny. Congrats #noodlestories

  36. Jill says:

    That’s frickin awesome Chris!!!

  37. szir says:
