  • Really enjoyed this episode, Riki. MGG is always a fun actor to watch, got a kick out hearing him as the voice of Jimmy Olsen in the recent SUPERMAN ALL-STAR movie from DC. :)

  • What a fun and fascinating guy. That was a great conversation.

    Now I’m kicking myself for not going to the show at UNH. (Though I seem to remember having a scheduling conflict anyway. :-\ ) Having an entire evening of those stories must have been a blast! Here’s hoping he does more of them and comes back to the northeast so I don’t miss out again.

  • Great questions, great answers. Thank you for letting the guest actually TALK — so rare — kudos Riki!
    Was already a fan of MGG, but now? WOW. He’s totally awesome, so much talent!! Such a great voice, too. I could listen to him talk all day. Very impressed with his authenticity and humor. Amazing!
    Thank you for such a wonderful interview. More!

  • Riki, please bring Gube to do something with Garfunkel & Oates. I’m soo happy that he did this with you especially because the questions and answers are soo much better!! This was great to listen to!
    Will you marry me, Gube? lol you are the fucking greatest, Gube.
    I hope you get to be a guest star or something for Larry David. Great podcast dudes.

  • Of the plethora of media offered by Nerdist industries I am a most faithful listener to yours and the flagship Nerdist podcast.
    I really enjoyed this interview. I know Matthew was concerned about sounding “douche-y” but what I kept hearing from him is that he is so stunned and grateful for all of the experiences in his whole life, not jsut his career and it wouldn’t matter if he had chose cement mixing- this would be a happy and ebullient man. =)
    I have not seen Criminal Minsd but I am now an avid fan of Matthew’s.

  • Hi Riki:

    I really like your work as an actress but i have to say… you are really good interviewing people as well… you make smart questions that dig into the personality of your guest… two thumbs up!! Regards from Caracas Venezuela.

  • One of my favorite things about this podcast is the variety of guests. So many different stories, it’s great. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts, thanks.
