Ep. 70: Nerdist Industries Adam Rymer on Building a Media Company for Nerds

This week Nerdist Industries President, Adam Rymer stops by the podcast. Adam runs the media company founded by pioneering Nerdist podcast host, Chris Hardwick.

In 2015 geeks and nerds are kings and queens of the internet and Nerdist Industries at the center of this geek cultural revolution. Everyone who watches a Nerdist video or listens to one of their podcasts has a geek passion, whether it playing Minecraft, watching the latest Batman movie, or attending ComicCon in full cosplay mode (costumes).

Often on the internet, bullies and jerks can rule the comment sections of websites. And Nerdist works hard to avoid that type of fall-back. The focus of Nerdist is to avoid the lowest common denominator of the internet by not acting like a jerk. People who not only work at Nerdist but also their fans have ben bullied in the past. They get it. Nerdist embraces the positivity of being a geek.

Adam is a UPenn MBA with a focus on finance, and also went to Undergrad at Harvard. And now he runs business strategy and the company Nerdist. We live in an awesome world....
