  1. Whew… Binge listening to Podcasts today… I may never catch up!  😉  CG is AWESOME!  Some recent celebs were SOOOOO boring, but Clark was so alive and energized and snarky (gotta love that) and interesting to listen to.  Thanks Chris.

  2. The moment CG said “that’s probably true” with sadness, about Coulson being Hydra in an alternate universe made my entire existence, not just day. Those are exactly things that make me sad when I think about. Nerduniverse is my home

  3. Katie says:

    The mention of the movie Rhinestone actually made my day. That is a must watch 😉

  4. Alex says:

    Everyone should listen to Funkadelic, it’s timeless. I’m 26 and love them, as do my friends.

  5. joshua says:

    Interesting fact: the writers of the Winter Soldier hinted that if Coulson had not been killed off in the Avengers, or came back for his own show, he might have taken Sitwell’s place in the movie.

  6. Pree says:

    First time commenter here, but I have been religiously following the nerdist podcast since last year, and I really just wanted to tell you that you guys are terrific. I know I can always tune in to the nerdist podcast for a wonderful and fun time- thanks so much! You guys are wonderful!! And Chris – I am a HUGE boy meets world fan and loved you in the singled out episode (and the show)!!! 

  7. DiHard11 says:

    Chris and Clark both mentioned how they are easily baited. Would that make them masters at being baited?

    A delightful podcast as usual!

    BTW: My rule is that if someone says “I’m a Nerd” then they are a nerd.  It really is that simple.  🙂

  8. pam says:

    I am half way through this podcast and am totally freaking out that they’re just quoting the mighty boosh right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! best moment. 

  9. Ric says:

    I love love LOVE that “Hail Hydra” gets under his skin. That’s just so cool. Make him a monthly guest. I’ll be there.

  10. MattDitko says:

    Nerdist has found The Funk. References to The Mighty Boosh? Made my night. (btw, love the site, any chance in allowing images with comments though?) Totally would be great thanks.

  11. Joel says:

    Seriously, Clark Gregg is SO FANTASTIC.  More of him please.  He needs to be a co-host for a few podcasts or something.  Love him.

  13. jadedragonfly says:

    so much happiness in this episode XD

  14. jadedragonfly says:

    clark gregg is boss! as a supernatural fan, the kenny conversation struck home seeing as how EVERY character keeps dying. seriously though 🙁

  15. Jonathan says:

    Hail Hydrox.   They make you think they are Oreos, they raise your hopes, they seem like a friend…..

  16. Nora says:

    My sister’s middle name is Clark! Look, I’ll even make a hashtag: #ladyclark

  17. Tracy Sims says:

    Ryan Seacrest is behind hydra… I knew it!!!

  18. KatieY says:

    Loved the podcast! Chris is so much better and talking with/interviewing people than most it just seems so natural and fun makes me happy

  19. Tim says:

    Hooked on Nerdist…*shrugs, works for me. Great podcast! They’re all great. Keep up the good work

  20. Chris says:

    Clark Gregg is one of my favorite actors . Made me care about none superheroes again. 

  21. Wildride says:

    Graupel — Chris was clearly asking about graupel at the end of the podcast.  Like water falling from the sky, only more frozen, but not snow?  It must be graupel.  Can’t imagine anything else he could have meant.
    Graupel Hydra!

  22. Wildride says:

    Hail Hydrox: — They were inside Oreo all along!

  23. Megan says:

    I love you, I love your podcast and support you a whole heap but c’mon, he was obviously wanting to talk about his movie “Trust Me” over and over but the conversation kept drifting away! I’m sure that’s a sign that everyone was having fun and the conversation was flowing but he was there to promote his movie. I just was bummed he didn’t get to talk about it very much. Still a great episode, though. Thanks for the free content. 🙂

    • Chris Hardwick says:

      Hey Megan! He talked about it a lot on the last podcast…besides, there isn’t much to talk about when the movie hasn’t come out yet. If we had, your comment might have been all about how we spoiled it! Glad you dug it otherwise! Clark’s the best.

  24. Clark is such a geek! This was a very enjoyable episode. 

  25. KevinCV says:

    I was hyperventilating when I saw Clark on the front page of the website, because I love Coulson so much. I loved the first podcast he was on, and this was so much better than that one. I hope he’s a recurring one, because I love hearing Clark run the gamut of geeky stuff. 🙂

  26. Megs says:

    Clark Gregg needs to on the podcast more! What a great guy.

  27. Marlette says:

    Fuckin’ sweet interview. Love me some Clark Gregg.

  28. Toni Hutchings says:

    Eva Green is French, not Algerian. Loving the podcast.

    • Chris Hardwick says:

      Thanks! It was her mom that was born in Algeria, that’s where I was confused.

  29. SteveDavey22 says:

    Now THAT was a great Podcast – I could listing to Chis and Robe, uh, Gregg talk for hours more. Smart, funny and with references to Schrödinger’s cat and string theory – Hell yeah.

  30. CodyH says:

    As with the first one loved this.

    Also did I remember wrong or in an earlier podcast someone said Eva Green was going to be on a Nerdist episode soon? Because I really hope I didn’t imagine that up.

  31. Tramen says:

    Lies Clark, you were stunning in The Adventures of Sebastian Cole.

  32. LordCreton says:

    Hail Hyd-Brah!

  33. Carrie says:

    I did enjoy the last one. Second time around should be good.
