We’ve collected podcasts by names nearly every nerd knows that you need to be introduced to today. So, dive into 5 nerd podcasts to add to your playlist and get listening!
Every nerd worth their salt knows Kevin Smith. Director, writer, actor, podcaster. Whether it’s his performances in classics like Clerks and Dogma, or his directing of shows like The Flash, Kevin Smith has made his mark on the nerd world. With his own network of podcasts, you can enjoy Kevin Smith and his friends in unscripted glory. SModcast is a weekly podcast featuring filmmaker Kevin Smith and his long-time producing partner Scott Mosier. Smith and Mosier talk about current events, especially in relation to the nerd-world. Jay & Silent Bob Get Old features none other than Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. While none of Smith’s podcasts can be called “safe for work”, his show with Mewes is doubly so. Hollywood Babble-On features Smith with actor and comedian Ralph Garman, discussing general film and entertainment news. Fatman On Batman features Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin talking comic books. Talk Salad and Scrambled Eggs is a show that features Smith and comedian and musician Matt Mira reviewing episodes of the sitcom Fraiser. Edumacation is hosted by Smith and screenwriter Andy McElfresh and it’s most recent recordings include a live pub quiz from Scum & Villainy Cantina in Hollywood, Ca!
At first glance, one may not think there’s much relation to Macaulay Culkin and the nerd world, save for some childhood nostalgia. But Macaulay himself is actually quite the nerd. His podcast, Bunny Ears, explores Culkin and his talented friends doing… whatever the hell they feel like. And you never know what nerdity will pop up, or what other celebrity guests might join in.
Inside Of You – Michael Rosenbaum
Michael Rosenbaum has some strong geek cred, from playing Lex Luthor in Smallville or voicing The Flash in the Justice League Unlimited cartoons, and even having a cameo as Ravager Martinax in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Rosenbaum’s podcast features Rosenbaum and his actor friends sitting down and discussing what makes them people, flaws and all. Recent episodes include Henry Winkler, Dave Bautista, and Michael Rooker.
Freddie Prinze Jr has solidified his geek cred with Star Wars: Rebels, voicing Kanan Jarrus (as if playing Fred in the Scooby-Doo movie wasn’t enough?). He sits down with his friend, comedian Josh Wolf to discuss everything under the sun. Prinze often tells memories from movie sets.
Nerd, comedian, writer, Brian Posehn is the kind of guy every woman wants and every man wants to be. But on top of that, he also hosts a podcast. But if that’s wasn’t cool enough, it’s a Dungeons & Dragons podcast! Posehn is joined by Sarah Guzzardo, Ken Daly, Dan Telfer, Blaine Capatch, and the occasional guest on their adventures through D&D!
