‘Supernatural’ season 9: How Misha Collins spent his summer vacation

SupernaturalAs someone who is an avid Nerdist Podcast listener, imagine our joy a few weeks ago when we started getting a feeling that there was an episode coming up featuring “Supernatural’s” Misha Collins; and to have this episode pop up on the week of the Fourth of July, a week when there is so little else going on when it comes to new programming, was more or less a match made in geek heaven.

You can listen to the full (and rather lengthy) interview between Collins and Chris Hardwick here, and there are quite a few interesting topics broached, from the way in which the actor first got his start in show business to joining “Supernatural” to how he feels now about directing an episode on the show’s upcoming ninth season. While there are no plot spoilers present here, you don’t really need them when you consider all of the other cool topics touched on, including how he reacts to fans who know the show better than he does, people who ship Castiel and Dean, and how he feels now about playing a character whose voice is lower than his own natural register.

This podcast was actually recorded earlier this May in a Scottish castle, where the two were taking part in a reward forĀ GISHWHES, the world’s largest scavenger hunt that also doubles as a way to raise a great deal of money for charity. But like we said, we’re glad that Hardwick waited to release it until now, a time when we were crying out for “Supernatural” news, and when there’s hardly little else to entertain ourselves with save for marathons of old shows.

Production is getting close to starting up on “Supernatural” season 9, and if you haven’t heard too much about that just yet, our suggestion is to check out this story here.
