Nerdist was started by Chris Hardwick and has grown to be a many headed beast.

Previewing “The Nerdist” with Buzz Aldrin and Bobak Ferdowsi, Plus A Contest

by on May 7, 2013

We’ve told you that the upcoming episode of The Nerdist on BBC America is all about space, and this promo shows that we’re not kidding, Buzz Aldrin and JPL “Mohawk Guy” Bobak Ferdowsi are the guests. Is there another show on TV that would have this lineup? Plus Maria Bamford? Nope, just The Nerdist.

So you should watch on Saturday night, 10/9c, BBC America, after new episodes of Doctor Who and Orphan Black. (Or, in Canada, Sunday, 7/6c/4p on Space) But BBC America has another BBC DVD autographed by Chris, Jonah, and Matt to give away, so before you watch, enter by clicking here and posting in the comments section on that page your answer to this question: “If you could visit one planet in our solar system, what would it be and why? What would you attempt to accomplish?” (I’d travel to Earth and try to win the lottery because… oh, wait, that’s what I’m doing now) Again, DON’T post your answer below. Not here. You should click here and post your answer on THAT page. And do it before Saturday night, May 11th, 11 pm ET.

Oh, and while you cogitate, here’s Buzz Aldrin talking about TMZ, Lindsay Lohan, and divorce:

And here’s Buzz talking abut meteors ‘n’ aliens:

Do. Not. Miss. This. One.
