Nerdist Expands Its Podcast Network

The Nerdist Podcast Network is beefing up its slate, adding new shows on pop culture, sports and entertainment, bringing its total to almost 50 programs.

“Will You Accept This Rose?,” one of the new additions, will be hosted by “The Bachelor” superfan Arden Myrin. Erin Foley, an expert on the ABC series, and “Bachelor” newbie Eddie Peptitone will co-host, along with the occasional “Bachelor”-obsessed guest host.

“When I launched Nerdist in 2008, my goal was always to open it up to as many points of view as possible,” said Chris Hardwick, founder of Nerdist Industries.  “I’m excited about all these additions to the network and finding different ways to work with them across multiple platforms.

Other new podcasts will be presented by Jenna and Bodhi Elfman (“Kicking and Screaming”); Jackie Kashian and Laurie Kilmartin (“The Jackie and Laurie Show”); Alexi Wasser (“Love, Alexi”), and author Jonah Keri, who will feature Hardwick as his first guest.

Keri’s podcast, which will offer new episodes every Friday, is set to debut on January 29.
