In 2008, Chris Hardwick founded Nerdist, a website and podcast devoted to all things nerd related.

In 2011, Nerdist merged with GeekChicDaily to form Nerdist Industries with Hardwick serving as Founder & Chief Creative Officer and digital media entrepreneur Peter Levin serving as Chief Executive Officer. Their online presence includes a website at Nerdist.com, a premium YouTube channel (youtube.com/nerdist), the Nerdist News daily e-newsletters, 1.7 million Twitter fans and a podcast network including the flagship Nerdist Podcast which is also produced as a TV show on BBC America.

Nerdist hosts live events such as The Nerdist Podcast Live! and Course of the Force, an annual Comic-Con lightsaber relay in partnership with Lucasfilm LTD. In July 2012 Legendary Entertainment, the company behind such genre films as Inception, Watchmen, 300, Man Of Steel and The Dark Knight Trilogy, acquired Nerdist Industries.
