Nerdist + Boulder + ... me!

If you read my blog (and you'd better accept that as an axiom) then you have probably heard of Chris Hardwick. His podcast, Nerdist, is a monstrous juggernaut of podcasty geekiness, for one thing. And he's been on Craig Ferguson's show, and Conan, and Chelsea Lately, and a bunch of others. He wrote a book on how being a nerd can make your life better. Chris is something of a Doctor Who fan -- proof, you want? -- and so he and I have significant overlap in our lives. We met at Comic Con a couple of years ago, but we haven't managed to get together since then.

But all that will change on Friday, March 2, when Chris will be bringing the Nerdist podcast here to Boulder, live at the Boulder Theater!

Chris and his co-hosts Jonah Ray and Matt Mira will be on stage making the nerdery in my fair town, and -- wait for it, waaaiiittt for ittttt --- Chris has invited me to be his guest.

I don't know what we'll be talking about, but I'm sure it will cover these topics at the least: the Doctor, growing up geeky, astronomy, w00tstock, space travel, the Mythbusters, zombies, and which of us wants to run off with River Song more. Probably pretty much in that order.

I feel obligated to note that if you're not familiar with Chris's podcast, it might be possible that it should be considered just ever so slightly NSFW. Or maybe a lot. Just so's you know.

Tickets are on sale now! If you're in the area come on by... and face it, if you're reading this blog and you know who Chris is you have nothing else to do on a Friday night anyway.

P.S. If you're not around Boulder, the Nerdist Podcast Live is going to be at a bunch of other towns as well, so look for one near you.
