#310: Hot Yogi (Tricia Donegan

12/18/2017
More
Tricia Donegan took me upstairs to the roof of her yoga studio on the Lower East Side to tell me all about how she got started in yoga. She ran the studio and the classes that I took most during Sober Octobert. Tricia is a really kind-hearted person who always made me feel warm before and after I got hot. It's an interested conversation with a non-comic about the stretchy arts.

11/27/2017
More
Colin Wright met me in a park in New Orleans to tell me about the unique way he travels the world. Colin has been living in a different place every 4 months or so for years, while he writes books and keeps a great blog going, too. He really makes himself an expat over a tourist.

#308: Sober Octobert; A November to Rebender (@BertKreischer)

11/6/2017
More
Bert Kreischer joined me to talk about alcohol. He's an expert on the subject. For real. We split the podcast up, doing the first half while he was 25 days into his sobriety, and then we did the 2nd half a week later when he was 3 days into a booze cruise.

Jay Larson met me at Venice High to talk about our old school days. We sat on the lawn like creeps and talked about high school until we got asked to leave. Great conversation and memories about the most carefree times of our lives. Jay's new special, Me Being Me, is out now at www.JayLarsonComedy.com. Pick it up and get a great laugh while supporting independent artists who make amazing comedy.

Christina Pazsitzky met me in LA to talk about motherhood. She just became a mom a couple years ago. It's the first realistic version of motherhood that i've ever heard. Good into and outro, too.

Ari goes to Hot Yoga. This is the worst thing to happen to anyone in the world in all of history. I want to do druuuuuuuugs! This sober Octobert stuff is moronic.

#304: My Daughter Sucks At Suicide (JMScomedy))

9/19/2017
More
Jessica Michelle Singleton met me in LA to talk about her suicide attempt. It's waaaaay funnier than that. I love hearing about suicide and we did this without any crazy gravity to the subject. Just a good fun talk about ending it all.

#303: The 2018 State Of The Union (@ComicDaveSmith)

9/12/2017
More
Dave Smith came to my apartment to have a chat about America. Dave is a really well read staunch libertarian. So he breaks it down from an intelligent place that's not biased towards any powerful political party. (*Libertarians are not powerful). It's a great, accessible way to hear about the state of the United States. Make sure to support Dave Smith by buying his debut special, "Libertas," at www.GasDigitalNetwork.com/DSL.

#302: I Regret Nothing (@RonFunches, @DanSoder, @CheetoSantino, @BertKreischer)

9/4/2017
More
Andrew Santino, Ron Funches, Dan Soder join me in Montreal for live podcast from the Just For Laughs festival and talked about the topic of regret. I don't know. I choose topics. It was great, though. So much fun. Those guys kill. And Bert Kreischer joins me for the intro and adds some regret of his own.

#301 The Barreness (@FunnyLynne)

More
Lynne Koplitz had me over to her apartment to talk about menopause. She's deep into it and she was open about all of it. The hot flashes, the crankiness, the inability to breed. It was such a fun conversation that was MAYBE 20% on topic and the other 80% was just fun meanderings.

#300 Quittin' Time (@DanishAndOneill)

8/14/2017
More
Danish and Oneill came over to my Los Angeles AirBnB to talk about when it's time to call it a career in show business. That was the topic. Obviously we tangented onto some ridiculous crap. And somehow we managed to end it around a fire pit making smores. I'm not quite sure how that happened. It's always a good time when Jeff Danis and Ryan Oneill come on and this one was no exception. Now hopefully Danis will come to his senses and release the episode of Danish and Oneill that I did over...

#299: But... But You're Blek (@LoyisoGola)

7/31/2017
More
Loyiso Gola met me in Montreal to give me a bit of an introduction to South Africa. Loyiso is one of the biggest comics in South Africa so he was the perfect guy to tell me about a country I knew very little about. It's an interesting discussion that diverted into American media, rules of cricket, and crime rates.

#298: Vagabonder (@RolfPotts)

7/18/2017
More
Rolf Potts met me in Tompkins Square Park to talk to me about travel. Rolf wrote one of my favorite books of all time called Vagabonding. It's all about long term travel. It influenced the hell out of me. And I was so stoked to be able to talk about getting out there in the world with such a well worn traveler like him. Also, my special "Double Negative" is on Netflix right now! Go watch it!

Bob and Ari Smoke Cubans (@RobertKelly)

7/12/2017
More
Robert Kelly met me on the stoop outside the Comedy Cellar. He's gotten way into cigars in the last few years. So we sat outside the club and he told me all about stogies as we smoked two possibly Cuban bats that I bought in Costa Rica two days before. Cameos galore from Mike Yard, Liz, Norton, and Keith Robinson. And a really embarrassing story at the end of the outro. I'm disgusting sometimes.

#296: Brandon Goldberg, Stripper At Law (@AaronBergComedy)

7/3/2017
More
Aaron Berg came to my apartment to tell me about his days as a male stripper in Toronto. It was really fun and got kind of seriously dark in the middle there. And then back to more fun. Come on along.

#295: Low School (@AdamEget)

6/21/2017
More
Adam Eget met me at the Comedy Store to talk about Cedu, the crazy bad kid school his parents shipped him off to because he was a spazz. It's amazing what people got away with 20+ years ago. The amount of mistreatment and abuse and murder would never fly now. Sorry for the echoey sound, I didn't realize how hollow that room we recorded in would sound. Listen for the intro and outro for interesting American killers stories.

William Childress (skip to 53:30) had me over to his homestay in Siem Reap, Cambodia to talk about Myanmar. He lived there for years. And it was the first place I went on my travels this year. So I finished seeing a temple near Angkor Wat and went to visit him so we could talk about one of my favorite countries in the world. Myanmar is amazing. See it before it gets ruined by globalism. Also, I went kind of nuts on the intro and outro. And then stay tuned after the outro because I also...
