2011’s Number One Nerdist Podcast, Revealed

What was the Number One Nerdist Podcast of 2011? It was pretty clear from listener responses to my initial call for comments as I compiled the Top 5 Nerdist Podcasts of 2011 for BBC America’s Anglophenia blog that you really, really, REALLY loved one in particular, one that fits comfortably into the Nerdist world. And that one was the podcast on which Chris and Matt visited…

Neil deGrasse Tyson.

You can’t be too surprised. Dr. Tyson is, by popular acclaim, awesome. He’s so awesome that Matt made a special trip to New York just to be part of the show. And Dr. Tyson did not disappoint. You can read more about the show, including some of your own comments, at

And, of course, all of this comes with the reminder to watch The Nerdist: Year in Review, Saturday night, Christmas Eve, at 9/8c on BBC America, featuring Chris, Jonah, Matt, Phirm, Kumail, Wil Wheaton, Nathan Fillion, Simon Pegg, and David Tennant, following Doctor Who: Best of the Christmas Specials.
