I’m a big fan of Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist podcasts and could have pointed to them countless times, but this recent interview with Timothy Olyphant of “Justified” was simply just too good to ignore. 

In his relaxed, hourlong format, Hardwick has a knack for bringing out the best and most interesting insights from celebrities who have been interviewed over and over again – and frankly, if I were said celebrity, I’d be eager to jump onto the Nerdist podcast as fast as I can.  With Olyphant, we not only hear great stories about “Justified” and “Deadwood,” we also get some really useful insights into the process of being any kind of artist. And to top it all off, there’s a segment toward the end in which we learn about, of all things, the stand-up comedy career of the man who went on to play Raylan Givens.

Definitely give it a listen.
