Sidekick with Matt Mira

Watch a Full Episode of SIDEKICK W/ MATT MIRA and Get a Free Preview Code for ALPHA!

Fans who have previously signed up for our premium membership service, Alpha, have already gotten to see Matt Mira on his own talk show. But now, everyone can watch a full episode of Sidekick w/ Matt Mira and get access to our free Alpha preview!


First, let’s reintroduce you to Matt Mira, the beloved number two of the Nerdist Podcast. Sidekick is very much Mira’s show, but he’s never the host. Instead, he’s following in the footsteps of Ed McMahon, Andy Richter, Barney Rubble, and other famous second bananas by serving as the titular sidekick to a series of revolving guest hosts. Some of Mira’s previous hosts have included Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects, A Few Good Men), Eliot Glazer (Broad City, New Girl), and Brooke Van Poppelen (Girl Code). In this episode, Silicon Valley co-star, The X-Files Files host, and our pal Kumail Nanjiani stepped up to be the newest host of Sidekick. Doughboys host and @Midnight writer Nick Wiger also guest stars in this episode.


Now, we’ve got another treat for you: full access to all previous episodes of Sidekick w/ Matt Mira and every single show on Alpha, free for 60 days. That’s right, we said “free.” All you have to do, is head over to and sign up for Alpha using the code “SIDEKICK” for the free trial period. That’s going to give you nearly two months to check out all of our new original shows that were created by Nerdist’s pop culture experts and the fantastic team at Geek & Sundry.


If that’s not enough, Alpha also gives you advance access to some of our most popular originals, like Because Science, The Dan Cave, Co-Optitude, and more, 48 hours before anyone else sees them! Take it from us, Alpha is the best way to keep on top of our ever expanding lineup of programming, and we’re excited to show you what we’ve been working on.

Are you eager to try out our free Alpha preview? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
