When you're the youngest of four kids in a single parent house you don't always get all of your needs met. That's why comedian, writer and over all inquisitor Jay Larson has so many unanswered interests. Jay uses a type writer because his grandfather did, who else does? Jay wants to be a classic rock vinyl guy but all that was ever played in his house was classical music. He loves old cars but can't even change oil let alone how many cylinders one has.

Each week Jay will explore his curiosities with two separate guests to help him better understand true Crime, Bird watching, Story Telling or surviving life in unusual living conditions. With 17 years as a stand up comedian, actor, writer and weird person who will talk to anyone Jay has acquired a vast range of friends. Which enables him to talk Vinyl records with Marc Maron, binoculars with House of Cards star Michael Kelly (Stamper), Storytelling with Ira Glass, Type Writers with a German ex-physis repairman, and many other random topics. While each topic acts as a thru line to each episode Larson digs deeper to explore how we are all connected to simple things in life.

Give it a listen!!

I loved the crabfeast and now I’m totally hooked on Thruline.
I love the solo episodes but the interviews are also always entertaining and funny. I definitely recommend this podcast and also Jays stand up. Check him out, he’s awesome.

Feels like a miss

Love Jay, but something is lacking with the new podcast.
It may just need some time.
