Nerdist Podcast: Cave Bear

It’s more hostful fun! Matt won’t stop talking about the two Dave Matthews Band concerts he went to over the weekend, Jonah un-ironically loves the Waterworld show at Universal Studios, and they talk about what they all have been up to in the past few weeks!

Science Explains Why Your Cat Keeps Knocking Stuff Over

Science Explains Why Your Cat Keeps Knocking Stuff Over



  1. Katie says:

    Seasons? Chris knows there are only two in Memphis. Humid or Wet Cold. Fall and Spring only wave from a car as it drives by like a drive by shooting. 

  2. Carlos Perez says:

    Maybe he already does….. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  3. Carlos Perez says:

    I think Chris Hardwick should have the Ark of the Covenant in his house. 

  4. You fucks we reach the end of the podcast and now I have the Growing Pains theme song playing in my head…but great show again guys 

  5. Clueless Neophyte says:

    I sent this in as a quemment, too, but for the benefit of the readers here: There’s a small art gallery in Minneapolis that sells mounted Dr. Seuss-designed critters.  Just the thing for Chris’ own private gallery!

    Here’s their website:

  6. Arabrabbra says:

    I love the people talking about the RICH WHITE GUYS ummm neither Jonah or Matt are rich. Far from it. Jonah drives a 5 year old Honda Fit for crying out loud! Chris sold Nerdist to Legendary so yeah he’s loaded but the guys always give him shit for it too because while they are happy it does suck to not have it happen to you. However Chris worked his ASS off for all of his success, while maintaining his sobriety and friendships and I have no problem listening him talk about what that success has rought. Am I sad that I am poor? Yes? Am I going to hold onto that bitterness while listening to a free comedy podcast? No. Grow up peeps

  7. Mel says:

    I don’t really know but it seems Jetpackblues needs to get out more and probably a better screen name

    • JetpackBlues says:

      Thanks, I get out plenty.
      When do YOU find the time to go AFK to barf sunshine and shit rainbows? When someone comes and unlocks your basement door?

    • Corntrollio says:

      You must be pretty short if that reference went over your head, son.
      @JPB  You hear that, man?  Time to change your screen name to something else.  Like, uh, SunsetHues or something.

  8. JetpackBlues says:

    Chris, take it from a fellow nerd with a house full of female repellant – don’t do it.
    Discs of Tron, a pulse rifle, a half dozen lightsabers (nerd dildos I call them), and a hand-drawn map of Middle Earth by Adam Savage are only a handful of examples of how I’m a selfish, giant child with money. And that I hold the scrolls to the Ark of Perpetual Virginity.
    A woman will never integrate without that stuff giving her a surgery-less hysterectomy or causing strife when it comes time to make a home with you. Plus there’s always the question, “You paid HOW MUCH for that?!”
    I know there are ‘Man Caves’, but that’s just 4 walls of windowless shame you’re sequestered to in order to make the rest of the house look ‘adult’ for her parents. I watched it happen to a fellow prop nerd friend of mine and the thought of it knots my stomach.
    Forever alone,JetpackBlues

  9. Max says:

    Listening to three white rich men discuss blasting their disposable income on left-handed guitars and giant bear fossils for their lavish new homes wasn’t quite what I had in mind when, with rage in my heart and foam at my mouth, I demanded more Hostfuls. I realize these are free and I  am grateful for the pleasure and laughter they have given me. I also realize that the whole reason I loved listening to them initially was that I was getting a first-hand account of the lives of three people who were essentially ascending the ladder of comic, writing and creative success. It was like watching an engaging series or movie. But when the series or movie ends, there’s a reason we don’t follow the characters after the credits. They made it and we are happy for them but the narrative has run its course. I know you three better than you will ever know me, I am only one of who knows how many countless pairs of cochlea ingesting and enjoying your stories every day.I remember with a chuckle that time you, Chris, got John Pinette a butt plug for his birthday. He didn’t find that funny at all. But I did.Oh and Matt! Remember that time you were crushed by your own golf cart? You were more rotund then than you are now, which made it all the funnier.Jonah, oh sweet Jonah…I don’t think I’ll ever forget the day you got into that car accident and were thrown into a whirlwind of broken glass and cutlery.Haha, where does the time go?
    And now I return to the bridge from under which I came, for I, good friends, am a Troll and I do what a Troll does best. And then I shall navigate the treacherous waves of the ocean we call Internet once more and settle on a new island, young and untouched much like this one was before it grew out into the wonderful metropolis it is now. There I shall spend my days under a new bridge, amidst the inhabitants and I shall watch them grow and listen to their narratives until they too achieve their ultimate goal. Then I shall troll them, much like I am trolling you now, and they may not hear it over the waves, but I will know and I will grin mischievously. 
    Fare thee well gentlemen, Katie.

  10. English Dave says:

    There must be a way we can flush this bitter old turd.

  11. Corntrollio says:

    Riiiiight.  He should be more like you.  An “in-his-80s” never-was.

    • Corntrollio says:

      Singled Out premiered in ’95, by the way, but I can see how everything after the Late Cretaceous period might all blend together for you.

      • WSC says:

        Criticizing the cleverness of a joke after you dropped “No shit Sherlock” is so oxy-moronic it should be read in a loud whisper.

        I mean good grief. Otherwise, an awfully good critique of Hardwick you had there. 
        Seriously funny stuff…
        But that’s just one man’s unbiased opinion…

    • Buddy says:

      Comedians should always try to be better comedians. People should try to be better people. It all takes work.

    • Conspiracy Cat says:

      Eat a dick.
      I mean spaghetti.  Eat spaghetti.

  12. Paleok says:

    I’m going to make an impassioned plea not just to Chris but anyone who wants to own vertebrate fossils: please only buy casts. Owning actual fossil materials removes them from any availability to be researched and commodifies the material itself. That leads to reasearchers, including myself hopefully one day, to lose important materials, their contexts, and keeps us from being collect future materials from landowners due to not having reimbursement aside from goodwill and the promise to do our best in publishing important discoveries.  

  13. MischaD says:

    Flight of the Navigator was probably my second favorite movie as a child (only surpassed by The Goonies). I still have my original copies of both movies on VHS. 
    Also…I almost cried in the final minute! That was completely unexpected…thanks for the feels, guys!

  14. Spaceman says:

    Rich people talking about the shit they want to buy.

  15. JustinHoskie says:

    YES YES YES! Jonah, I have the exact same problem with my watch! I love it, I think it looks good, I look good wearing it, but it just reeks from sweat and dirt, and I have found no solutions online other than “Well, just buy three and wear switch them out each day and you won’t have that problem.”

  16. isidkr says:

    Wow! Jonah Ray is really doing it! You’re doing a great job bro!

  17. Ferret says:

    Not sure why I feel the need to point this out, but this podcast has the same background as an earlier hostful

  18. csmccauley says:

    It’s a grand hostful with my favourite online guys sharing silly stories (and America’s Test Kitchen is the bomb).  Thank you fellas…

  19. james says:

    best final minute in 576 episodes!

  20. Michelle says:

    OMG! Flight of the Navigator! My boyfriend had to relieve his childhood a few months ago and made me watch it … Does not hold but we still had good times. I did remember the ship from taking the MGM studio tour as a kid going to Disneyworld. (Yes, back when it was still called MGM) Ah, memories!

  21. DiHard11 says:

    Hostful goodness hot off the presses!  Happy Weekend. 🙂
