    Loved this podcast – very funny!

  2. Kathleen says:

    I just had to mention that Plan B morning after pill is not the same as RU-486. Plan B does not end an established pregnancy. Love the podcast!

  3. Eddy says:

    RollerCoaster talk? I’m literally crying right now because this is the best thing the Nerdist Podcast has done in years.

  4. stefano says:

    wonderful episode. hilarious and interesting. thanks Chris.

  5. Wayne Federman says:

    @hyphenality I couldn’t agree more. Come on, how could I not know that? But, honestly, I haven’t seen one episode of WD yet (I’m a binge TV watcher). Total blind spot.

  6. hyphenality says:

    Is Wayne _really_ that confused by the concept of The Talking Dead?

  7. Jason says:

    Hotel California is the worst song ever with the best guitar solo ever.

  8. Scully says:

    Dang it Wayne, don’t flip the tables on me too!?! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

  9. @Sheldon – re: episode 360. Perhaps we should have spoken about coming full circle. @Wildride I thought that song was written in the 20’s! (well, the lyrics anyway) @Scully I’m a “table turner” by nature. Good luck with the planking. @SlyFox the whole damn show was tense.

  10. s1yfox says:

    I really enjoyed this show! As someone said, it was fun listening to Wayne turn the tables on Chris on his own show 😛 The show ended kind of on a tense note in my opinion :X

  11. @matt: definitely! wayne is the best. one of the funniest people you could ever hang out with. the kind of guy that makes you funnier by riffing with him.

  12. Matt says:

    I agree swith scully. Its fun to hear the tables flip on chris and hear ya get a bit flustered. Its all in good fun im sure as you two are good friends. Long time listener and eternal fan of anything nerdist.. Please keep up all the wonderfull work!

  13. Sheldon J says:

    I feel like #360 should’ve been XBox related, just a thought. Haven’t listened yet but figured I’d get that outta the way first. HERE WE GO! (Mario voice!)

  14. Mark Rajca says:

    Faster than a bullet! So good! Just because 😀

  15. thyhoopyfrood says:

    I love how Wayne’s ribbing of Chris brought out the ribbing side of Chris right back at him, who is always so nice.

  16. Wildride says:

    “When did you start in comedy?”
    “Well, I did it once in College — But I didn’t inhale.”

  17. Wildride says:

    Good Morning to You was registered around 1893 but the tune itself is much older and is in the public domain. It wasn’t until the 1920s that it became Happy Birthday to You and was registered by someone else who was then sued and through a quirk of “not a real thing, shut up there’s money to be made” the royalties of this public domain song got reassigned to Good Morning to Yous authors. And since copyright now never expires ever, it’s now illegal to sing this public domain song in public without paying royalties.


  18. Scully says:

    Wayne totally flipped the tables on you Chris. I think he and Matt were interviewing you sometimes which was kind of adorable especially when you would get flustered about it.

    Good episode!
