  1. One of the most enjoyable riff sessions I’ve heard so far on Nerdist

  2. AnnoyedAustralian says:

    Ughhh the Australian accents… jesuss

  3. Chriss says:

    As Chris started talking about this shows sponsor, I thought “hey, I think that’s the thing my husband was talking to me about…” and went to check out the website. As I delved into, I thought it was cool and understand why my husband was trying to tell me about it.
    So long story not too much longer… I subscribed my husband for 6 months… AND TOTALLY FORGOT TO USE THE NERDIST CODE!!!
    Ah well, it’s still worth it!

  4. Alwin says:

    The celebrity name game sounds like a variant.

  5. James says:

    A now cancelled radio show out of Boston called “The Sandbox” used to do that radio game with callers. It was always a shit show. Nice work!

  6. jal says:

    This was marvelous! I’m surprised there aren’t more comments. Sometimes these one-on-ones can be a bit cringeworthy if the guest isn’t 100% committed but Eric was delightful all the way through.

  7. Julia says:

    He is the best.

  8. Leah says:

    Amanda – it turns out he was saying “Loot Crate” the whole time, that’s the sponsor.

    Fun fact – Lucrate is a thing, but loocrate is not.

  9. Frankie says:

    this was just adorable

  10. Cory says:

    I loved all of those “off mic” moments. That had me rolling.

  11. Neal says:

    Can you send someone over to my office to check the wiring in the server room? We’re located in the South Valley (below the 118). Thanks!

  12. tomK says:

    Fun fact, Eric Stonestreet was an actor on Scare Tactics before hitting it big.

  13. Amanda says:

    What was the sponsor website info? Having trouble finding it…

  14. Nora says:

    I’d like to hear more about this ‘Snell’ show.

  15. Tillburg says:

    Oh man Eric gets schooled in that DJ contest. Spoiler warning: hard knocks.
