Nerdist Writer’s Panel

February 2, 2012

Let me preface this post by saying that I probably should have made this post about six months ago.  So, many of you may have already discovered the greatness that is the Nerdist Writer’s Panel podcasts.  However, for the handful of you that want to write sitcoms and have not listened to this podcast before, please stop what you’re doing and start downloading immediately.

A couple years ago, when I was an un-engaged, dogless, condo renter, I dreamed of a world that included a podcast that provided in-depth interviews with television writers.  Time to wake up, because that dream is a reality and was brought to us by Nerdist Industries and Ben Blacker, professional television writer and moderator of said podcasts.  So, instead of sending your significant other jewelry, flowers, and chocolates on Valentines Day send them to Mr. Blacker, as he has helped create something that every writer will fall in love with.

Want got get into the minds of Steven Levitan, Dan Harmon, and Liz Meriwether?  (Don’t know who those people are?  Google it.  The first result is a link to the Nerdist Writer’s Podcast!)  Want to hear stories from the writers and creators of Modern Family, Community, New Girl, Parks and Recreation, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Lost, Friends, Will and Grace, Mad Men, Parenthood, Justified, The Killing, and many many more?  Ben Blacker has made this possible.  Mitchell Hurwitz would also be a great guest (hint, hint) considering all the Arrested Development talk going on these days.

Go to iTunes right now and subscribe!

The only major downside to the podcast is the theme song.  It will get stuck in your head, because it’s so damn catchy.

Bonus:  Want to learn more about Ben Blacker?  Check out Ross Carey’s interview with him.  You will not be disappointed.

(This is not meant to discount the other Nerdist Podcasts, which are all great.  But this one is my favorite. At least until  Dan Harmon gets his own podcast.)

    I’m a huge fan of the Nerdist Writer’s podcast. It’s actually one of the reasons I went out looking for blogs like yours.

    @hahabuda – Thanks! Things are going well…hopefully will have a post up soon about some of the projects I’ve been working on (If anyone cares). No immediate plans right now, just having fun and taking things day by day.

    @Jason – Awesome; glad you found the blog! I can’t express enough how much I love the Nerdist podcasts…
