Hello SmartLess, my old friend- we’ve come to talk with you again. We’ve got diamonds on the soles of our pod this week, baby angels; It’s Paul Simon. And when it comes to name-drops, in Paul’s words: “I can give you John Lennon, but I can not give you Mao Zedong.”
We go head-to-head with the wise and opinionated Bill Simmons (podcaster, sportswriter, cultural critic, founder of The RInger). And yes, we go deep: Jason gets to talk baseball, Will gets to talk soccer, and Sean dives into the psychology of sport. With a guest like this, we’re willing to pay a luxury tax for this week’s game.
This week, it’s bread balls, zero-glide potential, protein shakes, and tofu… with tennis player turned rock legend, Lars Ulrich of Metallica. Welcome to SmartLess.

I really liked the podcast but since watching the BTS series of the live tour I LOVE it! It was great to get a visual of the guys interacting… it’s added so much to every listen!
Hilarious, witty & entertaining
I’ve had to stop listening to this podcast on my runs, as I look like a mad woman running & laughing hysterically! The quick wit & dry delivery, combined with the love they have for each other & their guests, makes for some great interviews. Binged the Smartless doco & just started watching Arrested Development for the first time. Fav podcast, alongside Armchair Expert. You need to get Bell on! Love from NZ 🇳🇿
These boys have such good natural banter, great guests, every episode is a win. Thankyou
