The Indoor Kids with Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon

This week, Kumail and Emily welcome Devin Faraci (Kick ass movie reviewer/Badass-in-Chief at Badass Digest http://badassdigest.com) to pour his passion for movies into video games. We discuss old and new narratives, special effects, storytelling, and how all that works differently in video games vs. movies. Plus butt plugs.

Grandmaster Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick, drops in to discuss growing up nerdy, obsessing over things & how he learned to use those obsessive qualities for good rather than evil. For instance, using them to save Hyrule or Skyrim from Ganon & the dragon threat, respectively. He also shares tips on how to game while still being productive in other aspects of your life. It's Chris Hardwick! What are you, not gonna listen?
