Sir Ian McKellen, Lea Thompson, and More: Your Podcast Preview

Who’s coming up on the Nerdist Podcast Network this week?

How about Sir Ian McKellen?

Yes, the man you know as Gandalf, Magneto, and generally one of the great actors of our time is in the Nerdist Podcast this week. We’re on a roll with knighted British actors, it seems, following last week’s Sir Ben Kingsley appearance. Anyway, Sir Ian is currently receiving raves for his latest film Mr. Holmes, in which he plays an aged Sherlock Holmes trying to recall the details of his last case, and he’ll talk about that and more on this week’s episode.

Also on the Nerdist Podcast this week: Lea Thompson. It’s the 30th anniversary, of course, of Back to the Future, and Lorraine McFly is here to tell stories of making the movies as well as to profess her love of Part 2. And she talks about the big role she didn’t get (and why), her career (yes, includingHoward the Duck), and her process for acting.

Plus, a hostful Nerdist Podcast. We love those.

Also on tap: two (two!) Nerdist Writers Panel episodes, one featuring Marta Kaufmann, the co-creator of Friends, from ATX (she made a little news with her comments about ow she dealt with a misogyny issue on that show) and the other from Wondercon with a parade of great writer guests.

And comedian Matt McCarthy drops by for some video game chatting on The Inoor Kids.

There will be lots more, too. So go to the Nerdist Podcast Network homepage, subscribe to ’em all, and Like the Nerdist Podcast Network Facebook page to be on top of everything.
