My very favourite Nerdist podcasts are the ones where Chris, Matt, and Jonah just sit around and talk about stuff. Every time I listen to them, I find myself talking back to the recording like I’m there, wanting very much to join into the conversation.
Anne is sick with a terrible sinus infection this weekend, so while she sleeps and tries not to feel like her head is in a vise at the bottom of the ocean, I’ve been doing dishes and putting shit away so it’s one less thing she has to deal with before we go to Chicago next week.*
I’ve been listening to Nerdist Podcast 386 while I clean up, and I feel like I’m hanging out with my friends. It’s really great, and worth listening to.
Side note: I’m incredibly proud of Chris, and so so so so so so happy that he’s as successful as he is. Every now and then some idiot tries to engage me in some sort of Geek & Sundry vs. Nerdist bullshit, and I always tell them, “You’ve got it all wrong. It isn’t Geek & Sundry vs. Nerdist. It’s Geek & Sundry and Nerdist vs. Lame Boring McMedia.” Then I tell them that they are a stupidhead before I put on my cowboy hat and hop into my Camaro, flipping them the bird while I drive away.
Anyway, go listen to these guys, and get inspired to do awesome things.
*PRO TIP: One of the keys to a healthy and joyful relationship is helping each other carry the burden of just existing together without ever being asked by the other.
