  1. Patty says:

    I love, love, love Chris Jericho! Totally smart, incredibly engaging…his personality is a ten. Unfortunately, his web series isn’t very good. I hope he finds another outlet for his talents though because the world needs more of his voice.

  2. Calcifer says:

    Get Jericho on @midnight!

    I know it’s just been comedians thus far, but using funny non comedians would also be good. šŸ™‚

  3. I don’t really leave comments on anything, but this podcast was awesome. It’s good to know the people we idolize are into the same stuff as us. Also I started doing radio because of you Hardwick thanks for being awesome.

  4. Concetta says:

    I want to thank you, Chris, for having a real, polite, and more realistic discussion about celiac disease and gluten intolerance and fad dieters than I’ve ever heard out there. yes, there are some people latching onto it as a fad, but there are a lot of us out there with real medical issues with it. And I think you were spot on with why its starting to happen – so much processed food – and just want to add that the testing has also gotten better over the years, so its likely that people had celiac disease or other conditions for years and years before and just couldn’t prove it. I know my doc told me that I should have been diagnosed 20 years ago with it and that I wouldn’t be the medical mess I am now if I had been.

    But I disagree with you on AHS:Coven. I think the storytelling has only gotten better every season and that Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, and Angela Bassett are kicking *** with their acting on Coven.

  5. Joe says:

    Always a good listen but I respectfully disagree about AHS: Coven. I think the storytelling is a lot tighter this year and Kathy Bates is always amazing. Just my opinion. Keep up the great interviews.

  6. Steve says:

    So the web series “But I’m Chris Jericho” isn’t this an exact copy of the Bret Spiner web series “Fresh Hell”?

  7. amysrevenge says:

    (Hardwick) + (abundent self-confidence) = Jericho

  8. Eric says:

    I work in a retirement community. Boy do the elderly have stories to tell. However, every time they do, I’m vividly reminded of what an incredibly different reality we’re heading into and how glad I am that the human population (most of us anyway) is slowly but steadily watching the disastrous culture of dogmatic pride, anger and violence of that generation fade away into the past. Soon all we will have left of their legacy is their tremendous economic debts to pay off. Hooray.

    Anyway. Great podcast, fun & witty guest.

  9. Nichole says:

    I always want to talk to old people when I see them wearing vet hats – but then I don’t because I’m scared they’ll be offended – much like Chris’s experience!

  10. jhg says:

    @Wildride yeah that’s the problem though, most people that claim to have a gluten allergy have never actually been tested. it’s just the new thing to say about changing diet (which, derp, any change in diet makes you feel good in the short term, but if you aren’t getting the nutrition you need overall, you are hurting yourself. Same as the nonsense over the years like ‘oh eggs are bad’ and this new thing of anti dairy, vast majority of people are just knee jerk reacting bandwagoners.

  11. Anthony says:

    Great listen! Jericho seems like such a great dude! This did a pretty good job of filling the hostful sized hole in my heart XD

  12. Wildride says:

    Here’s the thing: When we were younger, gluten allergy was called wheat allergy. I know — Shocking! But there are several potential allergens in wheat, so gluten allergy is now a subclass of wheat allergies. It hasn’t come out of nowhere and there hasn’t been an increase in prevalence. There’s merely been a name change and an increased awareness. And there is no reason to avoid gluten if you’re not allergic to it. Actually, I think I may just have a big heaping bowl of gluten later.

  13. Wildride says:

    “… If he wants to wear a kilt and a blazer and go to the curling “Roar of the Rings” tournament in Winnipeg as his character of Ron Burgundy, he just does it.”


  14. JamesK says:

    Oh man wrestlers are always fun on the podcast…We need more of them soon!!

  15. HempKnight757 says:

    Yeah Dexter really suffered because of different Show runners & sweeping some story lines under the rug if the next guy didn’t like it. Great podcast. Could have gone for 2 hours.

  16. chris says:

    His own podcast of course. Not this one

  17. chris says:

    Can’t wait for Jericho’s podcast to debut this week

  18. Brian says:

    I waited all weekend to hear Chris Jericho. Of course ill listen. You always pull me in Hardwick, ya bastard…
