I am Chris Hardwick. This podcast used to be called Nerdist. Now it is not. ID10T is a joke IT code that essentially means “user error”. I like it because it reminds us that we can take responsibility for our own crap. The show is still basically just me talking about stuff and things with my two nerdy friends Jonah Ray and Matt Mira when they’re available, and usually someone more famous and smarter than all of us. Swearing is still fun, so we still do that occasionally.
