Nerdist Podcast: Mike Birbiglia 3peat

Birbigs 3peats on the Nerdist Podcast to discuss his critically acclaimed new film Sleepwalk With Me. Mild but not Earth-shattering spoilers ensue, and in between jokes about using babies as camera phones, the guys actually get into some uncharacteristically heavy relationship break-up talk. Could this be considered “a very special Nerdist Podcast”??? YOU DECIDE. And then rejoice in the powers of decision you have in the universe.

    This episode might be my favorite ever. I laughed hysterically, I cried (in the middle of a crowded Panera in Cincinnati, shit was weird), and I loved every minute of it. You guys are the best.

  5. Mike Nunez says:

    just bought: “Game Over: How Nintendo Zapped an American Industry, Captured Your Dollars, and Enslaved Your Children” from Amazon just to support the Nerdist Podcast. Your welcome chris!

    I can’t wait to see this movie. I also have a rare sleep disorder which was tough on my marriage. My ex husband helped me through many surgeries to get to the point I could be more independent. It was that bad – it was caused by a ENT surgery gone wrong…
    I have an amazing doctor in NYC who has written a book on the topic. There are more sleep disorders today because we are evolving with narrower upper airways and also we are fatter – bad alone and in combo. There are also more central sleep disorders that seem more biochemical/neurological with hormonal imbalances exacerbated by endocrine disruptors in the environment, food, lifestyle issues. It’s complicated.
    Love the Nerdist network and podcasts!!
    I wish it were easier for women to move on from relationships as adults – we are raised more to define ourselves as wives, mothers and not just by ourselves and our careers. Maybe that is changing now. I am trying to change in that way but it’s been a total identity shift.
