Nerdist Podcast: Episode 420 w/ Doug Benson

It’s the Nerdist episode #420, so who better to have on than Doug Benson? They talk about what they were like in high school, Doug’s role in Captain EO and, of course, weed.

Listen to Dining with Doug and Karen and watch Getting Doug with High!

  • Doug, quick thought on your getting doug with high show.. Guests try to get your competitor online.. When googling you.. Doug Fine.. He seems like an awsome guy to compete with the smoke n conversation. And an offshoot.. Henry Rollins.. Intellectual rough, maybe opposite your style but what the heck.. He has a good cult following too. Love your show.. Addicted to as Mark Marons podcast I been doing the last couple years.. Good work.. Eric, Saint Paul MN

  • Doug is funny, the podcast is funny, and this episode is funny.

    …but a brief moment of confusion made me wonder, when will Nerdist ever get Doug Stanhope on?

    I’m surprised in 400+ episodes, he hasn’t been on.

  • Never smoked weed because just smelling the skunk/broccoli scent makes me nauseous + that combo just smells gross – nothing against people who smoke it though

    *I also do the flush sound cover up trick, also wait until other people are gone to come out so they don’t see me!

  • So – go to wonder about the Matt Smith show when Mira insisted that the 8 bottles of beer in front of him were mostly full and he “wasn’t that drunk”
    But was – Very loud and – shall we say- interruptive?

    Blackout II ?

  • Awwwww jesus man every time you talk about getting bullied in high school I just want to give you a hug! It’s ok now!

    Also good crepes man, don’t kill yourself churning out this many pods. We’re a mom and pop store not a big chain grocery.

  • This was a great podcast – Doug is so consistently funny, on everything I hear/see him on.

    On a slightly different note – a message for Chris – today is the first anniversary of my life without booze. Last year you tweeted about your own anniversary, and for some reason it really clicked something in my brain, combined with just being sick of the whole thing. My last drink was the day after reading that tweet.

    I know there’s a widespread idea about how tweets are vapid and worthless, but that one had a real impact on me, and pushed me in a direction I might have been too lazy or foggy to go without help. So … thanks!

  • I love the daily podcasts this week. I’m so used to the 3 a week that it feels like such a treat. 3 a week is still more than enough. Don’t feel pressured.
