100 episodes

Hi, I'm Rick Glassman, and I'm a goofy guy and a cute boy. As a kid, I had debilitating OCD. I still have a lot of “things.” The title of my podcast “Take Your Shoes Off” is a microcosm of my need for control and order in a world that... keeps their shoes on.

I created this podcast to showcase a more serious side, as I have conversations with some of the funniest and most interesting people in the world. I’ve learned the language of comedy in an attempt to survive this shoes-on world, so of course there will be some goofs and spoofs, but think of this podcast as you being a fly on the wall, as opposed to being an audience member in a theatre.

Please, take your shoes off, and enjoy!

    Dax Shepard 2.0

    Dax Shepard 2.0

    We went to the top of the podcast mountain for this epic guest... Dax Shepard!! He’s back for a 2.0 that's so long and fantastic, you’re basically getting 2 episodes in one (so buy a Helix mattress or some Mack Weldon)! 

    Rick discusses his podcast set up and Dax marvels at the studio/living room situation. 
    They discus being "chivalrous" men, defending women (kinda), and natural instincts. Dax investigates why Rick didn’t attempt to protect Kristen Bell on the 100th episode debacle, and Rick tries to defend his natural instincts to not get in physical confrontation unless it's worth it.

    Dax enquires about Rick's work ethic and the length he goes to make each podcast episode. Rick gets to ask some "tough questions" about The Armchair Expert move to Spotify and how incredible Dax’s life (simulation) is. 

    We get some explanation about diversity in guests from Dax himself and what he hypothesises about why white men love to talk about themselves. The two marvel over Dave Chapelle being one of the greatest orators of our generation, and lots of goblin stuff of course! (if you want to experience the visuals, watch on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F1JDaSI24Y)

    The Professor (Magic: The Gathering expert)

    The Professor (Magic: The Gathering expert)

    Having a podcast allows us to showcase some incredible people, and this week is no different... This week's guest isn’t our typical comedian/entertainer, but he is THE PROFESSOR!… Of Tolarian Community College, which isn’t so much a college and actually a #1 Magic The Gathering Youtube channel! 

    If you aren't too familiar with Magic The Gathering, it doesn't matter because this episode is about so much more than just a trading card game (that being said, during this episode, Rick DOES open a package that contains a very rare, early 90's booster box).

    Immediately The professor (aka Brian Lewis) and Rick bond over similar anxieties and being uncomfortable in the world outside their safety net. 

    Brian recounts his friendless childhood, barking like a dog at school, and being likened to Forest Gump as a teen. Rick connects to Brian's inability to find his tribe and finds a through line in his own life with finding comedy. 

    Now running a successful YouTube with hundreds of thousands of subscribers and a lucrative patron, Brian insists that “The Gathering” remains the most important part of playing the game. 

    Rick unpacks Brian's career from Teachers assistant to successful YouTuber, his opinions on collectables and how Magic The Gathering ’s rules make it easier to navigate than this complicated world. 

    This is the episode for anyone who didn’t fit in at school or is still looking for their community… he goes to show that everyone can find their people and become VERY successful in doing so. 

    Oh and of course this weeks sponsors! Supporting them supports the podcast and really helps us create content.

    Joel McHale 2.0

    Joel McHale 2.0

    Joel McHale comes back for his 2.0 episode. The Comedian, TV host and Actor immediately spills the milk ON A MARSHALL'S RUG!! Rick, despite his OCD lets Joel stay and even sit inside (everyone's vaccinated..blah blah blah) 

    The two discuss Rick reintroducing himself to Joel at the Farmers Market, despite working on the film ‘A Futile & Stupid Gesture’ for weeks together. Joel takes it as a personal attack on his memory and Rick explains his seemingly odd intentions. 

    Joel discusses the skill set of a “Host” and how he got involved in the new baking show Crime Scene Kitchen, Rick enquires about how Joel gets cast as a host so often and they discuss Chevy Chase again. 

    We also get another little tease from the unreleased short film Rick made about his basketball team story that Joel featured in! 

    We also announce on this episode THE TYSO LIVE SHOW! Can you believe we’re risking It all with Adam Ray!

    The Vegas Dads

    The Vegas Dads

    It's the episode that #GlassmanBoppers and #TYSOGoblins alike have been asking for. Thes Olympics of podcasts! That’s right, THE VEGAS DADS is back!

    We're bringing back #TheSleepoverSeries with the three dads at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and a poetry recital.

    Dad, Teddy, and Marc recount their wins and losses, Rick being the new Howard Stern, and  they get so high not even subtitles could help you understand what Teddy is saying.

    Rick laments staying at Caesars (he’s still trying to get refunded) and we call on the boys to help with our new advertises. If you want to support TYSO, support our advertisers & pick up your promotional deals below:

    Max Greenfield

    Max Greenfield

    Max Greenfield is on the balcony! You’ll know him from New Girl, The Neighborhood, The Big Short, & Promising Young Women… he’s a comedic heavy hitter and he dove right into the TYSO universe. 

    Rick came ready to dive into a scripted scene (thanks to successful Hollywood writer Jon DeWalt). Oh and it features a little cameo from Lamorne Morris!!

    Rick addresses the pimple no one can see but he’s uncomfortable with not acknowledging it (but don't worry, it'll make a huge appearance next week). They start to unpack interesting topics, like when its appropriate to improvise in an audition, Max being impressed by Rick's Marc Maron appearance, and how they both think they make great podcast guests but horrible hosts. 

    Max discusses meeting Rick on set of A Stupid And Futile Gesture and Rick explains how the podcast has “broken him," confusing his confidence. Max offers some perspective on dealing with embarrassment and how he’s changed his relationship with auditions, ego, and caring too much. 

    We get a little infomercial for Max’s new children’s book “ I Don't Want to Read This Book”  AVAILABLE FOR PRE ORDER here: https://www.amazon.com/Dont-Want-Read-This-Book/dp/0593326067

Unique Interview Style

I first discovered Rick Glassman on YouTube and enjoyed watching his stand up and sketches. This podcast shows how he’s a naturally funny and talented guy. He has a unique style of interviewing compared to other podcasts. It’s somehow laidback but also high energy. But the main thing is it’s super funny! Take your shoes off and enjoy the ride and maybe buy some of his Dad’s carpets.
