    Cannot find any link to listen to podcast! Very frustrating!!!

  3. Clueless Neophyte says:

    Hey, Matt–

    I had a blocked salivary gland once, too, years ago. The swelling came very suddenly, though t didn’t hurt much–just kind of felt tight/swollen. Mine, though, wasn’t infected, just blocked, so my doctor went old school–eat some real sour candy, get the saliva crankin’, & it’ll push out the blockage. And it worked! Weirdest thing–never happened before that, & hasn’t happened since. Anyways, hope your gland are all A-OK.

    PASSION OF THE SPAGHETTI MONSTER!!!! You so need to do this!

  5. Scully says:

    I adored this episode

  6. Nichole says:

    Flash Fiction via twitter is a thing!

  7. phil says:

    Hey, I’m from Indiana too. Maybe he knows me.

    “They’re all puppets.” Made me laugh way too loudly.

  9. ThisGuyRightHere says:

    Chris, something is off in the coding of this page, because the link to the YouTube video spills into the Podcasts play button. Whenever I click play/pause, which I do a lot because I listen at work, I get a pop up to the YouTube video…

  10. frankmint says:

    I agree with Stuewe.

  11. JetpackBlues says:

    @rob: That would be funny, but they’d still bitch about the audio quality….

  12. Chris Stuewe says:

    The Jonah Ray soundboard needs to be a permanent addition to the Nerdist Podcast.

  13. Miguel David says:

    Do not do the mime podcast! You would probably be sued by John Cage’s publisher (true story,bing it!).

    I loved these episodes when the guest fits right in and it sorta becomes a hostful. Doug sounds like the most delightful person in the world and I look forward to seeing him in Leeroy Jenkins: The Movie.

  14. rob says:

    God, I hope you guys do a mime podcast. If nothing else, it’s worth doing for the AV Club review.

  15. CJ says:

    Doug Jones – you were missed in PACIFIC RIM (even a cameo would’ve been appreciated) – and you are (like Andy Serkis) amazingly talented where others would never accomplish – because you do the impossible!

    Labyrinth of Jared – one of the best Costume Balls to attend (& Park View Plaza is a fan-fucking-tastic historic building adjacent to MacArthur Park in downtown Los Angeles)!

    ” Damn, Chris, that took forever! Don’t you know I can’t live without the sweet succulent goodness of your podcast?”

    Sounds like you’re describing barbecue sauce.

    OOOOOOOOOOOH!!! Baaaarbecue saaaauce!

  17. Wildride says:

    Oddly, there’s still a G4 up in Canada. Of course they don’t really have anything on it. Heck, their website still lists Attack of the Show and X-Play.

  18. Wildride says:

    You could make the video a crossover with Jenna Marbles and a What Is/Are This off between Jack and Kermit (

  19. Scott S says:

    Doug has an interesting laugh. it seems like I’ve heard several people on podcasts lately with a similar laugh.

    As Chris was saying that the family on Family Ties was the Seavers, do you think his brain was saying, “Wait, isn’t Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties? Wasn’t Boner on Growing Pains with the Seavers?”

  20. Addicted in Albuquerque says:

    Episode 404 Error – Podcast Was Not Found…

    Oh wait here it is. Damn, Chris, that took forever! Don’t you know I can’t live without the sweet succulent goodness of your podcast? You’ve made a spoiled little shit out of me. For shame. I can’t stand what I’ve become. Take this as a whinily delivered compliment. 😉

  21. Taylor Morris says:

    Stay away from Crest mouthwash, folks. Not only does it damage Matt’s glands, it also stains everyone’s teeth. Which it says ON THE BOTTLE.
