Science Explains Why Your Cat Keeps Knocking Stuff Over



  1. mampdx says:

    One of the best Nerdist podcasts I’ve heard. Kristin was delightful and hilarious

  2. Sunghee says:

    ” She is AWESOME ! Thanks. ” 

  3. Carlos Perez says:

    What an awesome woman. Thank you, Nerdist. 

  4. Ross says:

    Oh, and whoever thought of ending with that Bread song–brilliant.

  5. Ross says:

    I was already proud of Ms Bauer Van Straten as a Wisconsinite who made good, but after this podcast, I just adore her. Funny, cool, talented and beautiful–who could ask for a better representative of one’s home?

  6. Steve K says:

    Hey!  My company engraved the bricks for Best Friends Animal Society.  You and Kristin should both exploit your celebrity status and get an engraved brick.  Exploit it!

  7. Melynd says:

    I FLove Kristin! Pam was the BEST character.

  8. Mark says:

    Hogan’s Heroes was based on a film called “Stalag 17.”

  9. Mary Jo says:

    I loved this episode!  She’s awesome.  And not just because she brought up the Mars Cheese Castle … though it didn’t hurt.

  10. Joe says:

    You’d think that classic episodes of Singled Out and Remote Control could be syndicated onto GSN by now.

  11. Jaimer says:

    I now completely ship Chris and Kristin.

  12. Kind of a random question, but does anyone know if Nerdist has officially stopped releasing episodes on Mondays?

    • RC says:

      I wasn’t aware that they ever did this. Sometimes they release several episodes in one week. As far as I know their release cycle was always rather random.

  13. RC says:

    She is amazing, I love her. So far everything I’ve seen with her was better because of her being in it.
    I just recently saw a Comic Con panel video and there too, her presence was the most mesmerizing.
    Too bad Once Upon a Time isn’t exactly my kind of show, but at least Maleficent sounds like just the right part for her. She’s going to make it work.

  14. Adansonia says:

    Cesar Milan is not a dog trainer, at best he is a hollywood dog trainer. Hope when Kristina goes to Best Friends she asks them about Cesar Milan and they can tell her that there is nothing positive about his methods.Check out this site:

  15. James Smith says:

    If you start with ‘The Great Escape’ you can get to Hogans Hero’s pretty quick.  

  16. lala says:

    I heart nerdist podcast & this is my favorite episode so far — VIVA LA KRISTIN BAUR VAN STRATEN!  what a funny, fun, fabulous human being.  

  17. Jedimind7rix says:

    Next time do the entire podcast in the air plane restroom LOL

  18. Wildride says:

    “Abri?”Abri immediately gestures and mouths, “I’m not here.””Yeah, uh — I don’t know who that is.”

  19. DannyMac says:

    Because he knew there was a chance for the two of you to finally be together forever. Just as you have always imagined it. 

  20. Lynsey says:

    I didn’t realise she was so cool! Great episode.

  21. erik says:

    Great podcast.

  22. richard beaver says:

    I did a image search for wherepups… THAT SHITS DISTERBING!!!

  23. Lebowski says:

    And you, Redneckjedi, sound like a legit member of fucking mensa. 

  24. spitoon_sfx says:

    Did I detect a bit of derision when you two were talking about the great state of Texas? (puts on fake accent[that sounds more like abastardization of georgian, loisianin, and tennisean than anything inTexas]) Why I aughta put on my wranglers, grab ma stetson, strap on ma sixshooter, climb on to my horse, an head on down ta californ-i-a to sort you out…boy!

  25. Chris says:

    Watch out for those Sharknados

  26. Watch out for snakes, while you’re in there, Chris!

  27. Andy Ellis says:

    So Chris, When you recording the intro in the bathroom of the place was there any part of you that felt like a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent trying to get a top secret message out to Director Coulson? Also, how have not gotten a any kind of bit part in a Marvel movie or show yet?
