Expect Permanent Deaths For AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR



  1. Mike says:

    Josh needs to invited into the Nerdist circle permanently. That made my insides hurt.

  2. Patty Marvel says:

    If Bill Murray, Steve Perry and/or Joe Walsh aren’t on the podcast within a year of this episode going up, I’ll be sorely disappointed.

  3. MonarchHench says:

    Finally got a chance to listen, what was I thinking?! As a huge QotSA fan, I was aware Josh was funny. But this was awesome! Love when you guys go off on tangents with guests like this. Thank you, boys!

  4. Brandee says:

    I love all things Nerdist, mostly. The podcast makes my day, well, every other day! I absolutely loved Josh Homme. The dynamic between everyone was fantastic. Love it!

  5. Disa Pointed says:

    You mean I have to LISTEN to you talk? No thanks…

  6. Melissa says:

  7. B1gJ4k3 says:

    Just in case anyone was looking for the Schwarzenegger quotes (as I was), it’s here…and pretty spectacular….

  8. Aahz says:

    That man needs his own podcast. He was one of their best guests, ever.

  9. Kieran says:

    Steve Perry you need to get the fuck out of here!

    The Man Who Knew Too Little

  15. thefretboard says:

    Great guest! Lotsa’ laughs! Did anyone else think Homme sounded a bit…under the influence?

  16. carrie says:

    Awww man! Now I wish that Josh Homme could be a Nerdcaster all the time. *kerpout*

  17. Perv Starey says:

    That was one of the best Nerdist podcasts i’ve ever heard. God, if you had both Boots Electric and Josh…

  18. P Dogg says:

    Problem dogg played with the murder junkies on may 31st!

  19. Kyle says:

    Perv Starey had me dying. Josh was fantastic and hilarious! The new Queens’ album rules. Also, I second the request for Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer.

  20. Jeff says:


  21. jaitheartist says:

    I never comment but felt compelled to today after listening to this podcast. Holy shit. One of the best podcast episodes I’ve ever heard. The Nerds had such great banter with The Guest/Cool Musician. The conversation was ON the whole time, and the Steve Perry stories had me in stitches. Thank you Nerdist!

  22. Adam says:

    I love it when the episodes feel like Hostfuls that happen to include a guest. Also, the new Queens of the Stone Age album is very good.

  23. littlegrayshee[ says:

    I usually or….Ever comment, whether i liked and episode or not. But i have to say this 1 was pure Gold brah…PURE GOLD

  24. alanso says:

    Hmm, I’ve always found his persona to be that of an insufferable douchebag, but I guess I’ll put that aside and give this a listen

  25. This may be the funniest episode ever in the entire universe everywhere forever.

  26. MonarchHench says:

    Woohoo! Can’t wait to hear this one! Now when are you going to get my two other favorite dudes, Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer? 😛

  27. nsbucky says:

    Your mustache is a weiner broom. I can not stop repeating this.

  28. Some Guy says:

    nice humblebrag in the intro…

  29. William says:

    Thanks Chris, that was awesome! I now forgive you for all horribly things you’ve said about my home town (Las Vegas). I’ve been a fan of QOTSA (and Nerdist) and I was so happy to hear such great conversation. Thank you Chris, thank you Matt, and thank you Jonah! And if by some happenstance Josh sees this ‘If I had A Tail’ is fucking amazing!!!

  30. Kevin says:

    Holy shit.





  31. Adniral Kent says:

    Chuck Cunningham has been found!

  32. Jon says:

    Coolest dude ever and a musical genius. I wasn’t at the Wiltern but I watched the footage on youtube. Amazing.

  33. guymandude says:

    Chris Hadfield has the best ‘stache of this decade.

  34. Wildride says:

    What was really weird was when the guy who played Doyle on Angel was dating two of the sisters: Both of the ones named Becky. That must have been awkward sometimes.

  35. Chelsea says:

    OH MY GOODNESS I am so excited to listen. Saw them last Thursday at the Wiltern and they were FANTASTIC.

  36. Matt says:

    I know this has nothing to do with the episode which was amazingky great btw. But i love nerdist lads go to london!

  37. Kraken Attack says:


  38. thefretboard says:
