I am Chris Hardwick. I am on TV a lot and have a blog at nerdist.com. This podcast is basically just me talking about stuff and things with my two nerdy friends Jonah Ray and Matt Mira, and usually someone more famous than all of us. Occasionally we swear because that is fun. I hope you like it, but if you don't I'm sure you will not hesitate to unfurl your rage in the 'reviews' section because that's how the Internet works.

Penn & Teller

October 5th, 2011

Episode 135 of 833 episodes

Okay! It's really a solo Penn Jillette show. But I knew Teller wouldn't talk anyway so I just listed it as "Penn & Teller". Thought that would be clever and amusing. As I'm typing it, I can see now that I was wrong. Too lazy to delete it all and start over though, despite the fact that it would actually take me less time to do that than to explain and disclaim it. I'm weird! I'm a crazypants! Cock-a-doodle-SQUEEEEEE!!! All squeeing aside, Penn was a truly wonderful guest. We talked about the space program, song poems, bowling, his new show on Discovery "Penn & Teller Tell A Lie", PLUS we got the full little person/chimp story that I referenced to Adam Savage on Nerdist Podcast #10. This episode is like a suitcase full of steak! PACKED and MEATY. Also delicious. #goodtimes
