Greetings, traveler! Are you deeply passionate about weirdly specific things, like fan theories, a hard-hitting analysis of the basketball game in High School Musical, the science of how Kylo Ren’s lightsaber really works, or deep dives into the history of Game of Thrones? Do you find yourself prone to overthinking it when it comes to the rules of fictional worlds? When it comes to pop-cultural discourse, do you long for a community that is inclusive, intelligent, irreverent, and thoughtful, but also full of cat GIFs?

Then you’re in the right place. Welcome to Nerdist.

Whether you want to stay up to date on the latest superhero movie news, laugh your entire butt off at a hilarious trailer mash-up, devise new strategies to conquer your foes in your favorite tabletop games, educate yourself on the real science behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or treat your brain to an all-you-can-eat buffet of insightful commentary on the things we all love, Nerdist has something for you.
