Goldbergs, Goosebumps, Gilbert: The Week In Podcasts

Here’s what we had for you, and you, and you, too, on the Nerdist Podcast Network this week:

Adam F. Goldberg, creator of The Goldbergs, on the Nerdist Podcast, talking about hoodies, ’80s movies, the great Dabney Coleman, Go-Bots, and Ghostbusters, not to mention the good ol’ days when the WWE was the WWF. The podcast is as wildly entertaining in its nostalgia as the TV show is, which is a lot.

You’ve seen the video, and then Jack Black was back on the Nerdist Podcast (posting Friday, subject to scheduling and production). It’s a relaxed chat about big heads, Green Lantern, great TV, UCLA, marriage, Festival Supreme (Saturday at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium), and the new Goosebumps movie with Jack as a fictional version of author R.L. Stine. Oh, and, yes, there’s talk about The D. It’s all about the D. (Ahem.)

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love,” visited You Made It Weird to chat with Pete about social awkwardness at concerts, parties, everywhere. And divining what’s inside others (and yourself). And using your power, and the joys of social media (versus talking to your family, who probably don’t want to hear what you have to say), and cancer as a learning experience, and the pitfalls of aspiring for perfection, and much more.

The guys talked marriage on a hostful Nerdist Podcast to trade advice and things (hey, they coulda asked ME — I got 25 years of marriage on ’em). At the time of the taping, Matt was two weeks away from the Big Day, and Chris, of course, had just gotten engaged, so it’s all anyone could think about. Hey, guys? Mazel tov.

David Yarovesky dropped by The Indoor Kids to renew old acquaintances, talk about his movie The Hive (presented, of course, by Nerdist), and talk about old school video games and movies and stuff. Lots of how-it-was-made movie talk, too.

Damon Lindelof was joined by Chris Dingess (Agent Carter), Noelle Valdivia (Ash Vs. Evil Dead; Manhattan), and Kit Boss (iZombie; Bob’s Burgers) on a high-poweredNerdist Writers Panel.

Dan and Razzle went guest-free on Today We Learned and they go through the history of M&Ms and Tom Cruise’s brush with playing Iron Man, and what’s on TV now, and second-lining in New Orleans, and more rambling.

Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure, A Perfect Circle, Sweethead) joined Kevin and Steve to talk music, touring, and STDs on Chewin’ It.

Jessica Merizan, cosplayer and Legendary’s own Fandom Experience Manager, sat down with Janet for The JV Club for talk about TV, gaming, performing, and Xanga.

Great friend of Nerdist Mike Phirman met up with Tom for some wellness talk on Pro You.

Jess and Bowser offered some of YOUR creepy stories on Bizarre States. You’re weird.

Joshua Williamson and Marvel editor Jordan D. White helped Comic Book Club finally (one more time!) ring out the old… venue, that is, the last one (this time, for real) at Fontana’s.

Andy Wood returned for a second helping of The Todd Glass Show, now back to regular scheduling. Whew.

Dan “Soupy” Campbell of the band The Wonder Years got the deep fear examination drill on Terrified.

Dee Wallace, she of E.T. fame, talked pop culture and her personal project BuppaPaPaloo on Pop My Culture.

Gil found out all about this year’s BeyondFest on The Mutant Season.

And Paul F. Tompkins and Craig Cackowski joined Ben Blacker for more post-series analysis of the late, great Thrilling Adventure Hour, plus a word from Bucatino Business.

It’s all at the Nerdist Podcast Network homepage and the Nerdist Podcast Network Facebook page. So go there. Now.
