Nerdist Podcast: Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks! Tom. Motherf–king. Hanks. What more of a description do you NEED than that? Is the fact that we talk about Tom’s career, NASA logos, Storage Wars, vintage typewriters, and blasting caps going to influence your decision any further to enjoy this very special and hilariotastic episode?? Well I guess it should, because Tom made those all really fun things to talk about. And those rumors about his being the nicest most down-to-Earth fellow? ENTIRELY TRUE.

Extra thanks go to Ashley Olivia, Allison Diamond, Josh Cummings, and Katie Levine.

    That was a great interview.  It was real, down to earth, improvisational and funny…I am glad I took the time to listen…

  2. Michael says:

    Wow. The very first thing Tom Hanks does is see if anyone else needs anything. He’s the man.

  3. Frank Plowright says:

    Hugely enjoyable. Re your question at the end regarding one piece of advice to give actors starting out, Bob Hoskins once related the following in response to asking Michael Caine the same question when he once visted Hoskins’ drama school. Caine replied (and you have to imagine this is his best Michael Caine accent and intonation) ‘Neverr buy a bloody boat.’ Nice to see Donna Barr here.

  4. Kurt says:

    My brother was Chuck Nolan at the seahawks game he mentions. This was sooo cool!! I would love to email Tom some pictures we have from that game.

  5. Chad Hester says:

    That was SO entertaining. Hanks is a guy you could just hang out with and listen to stories for days. Glad to have experienced it!

  6. Byron Young says:

  9. Donna Barr says:

    Okay, listening again, about the NASA portion – this is KIND of a plug for my own stuff, but see, at GeekGirlCon in Seattle 2012, the NASA PR people were out in front of the show, and we got to talking about the kind of people who aren’t scientists, but love science. So I said I’d make these special bumper stickers for them. At Emerald City Comicon (Seattle again), in 2013, I got to walk up to the same gang and offer them all their own Science Hag bumper sticker. There was squealing. Now NASA has Science Hag bumper stickers. Which is about as nerdy as possible.

  10. Donna Barr says:

    Well, now I’m happy. Yay, Nerdist.

  11. Victoria says:

    Hands down one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard. You guys were awesome and Tom Hanks, is Tom Hanks. One of the funniest, most humanistic people ever. Happy that he is everything I thought he was in my head and so much more.
