We’re Up To #3 On BBC America’s Nerdist Podcast Top 5 Countdown

by on December 21, 2011

We continue to count ‘em down like Casey Kasem… er, Ryan Seacrest on BBC America’s website, the Top 5 Nerdist Podcasts of 2011. And we’re up to Number Three, and you HAD to know this one would be on the list.

It’s the episode with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Wil Wheaton taped before a live audience during San Diego Comic-Con 2011. You can go over to the BBC’s Anglophenia blog to see what listeners said about the episode and for a convenient link right back here to hear the show. And you’ll also get a couple of the requisite plugs for The Nerdist: Year in Review, coming Saturday night, Christmas Eve, at 9/8c on BBC America, because that’s why this is Nerdist Week over there. They’re also doing other things at Anglophenia to promote not only the Nerdist special but also the Doctor Who Christmas special and Sherlock Holmes (the new three-part TV version with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, not the movie) and other stuff, so feel free to jump around and see what they’re up to.

Numbers Two and One might surprise you, but you’ll have to wait until Thursday and Friday, respectively, for those….
