"SmartLess" with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, & Will Arnett is a podcast that connects and unites people from all walks of life to learn about shared experiences through thoughtful dialogue and organic hilarity. A nice surprise: in each episode of SmartLess, one of the hosts reveals his mystery guest to the other two. What ensues is a genuinely improvised and authentic conversation filled with laughter and newfound knowledge to feed the SmartLess mind.
Jessica Meir is truly out of this world. NASA astronaut, marine biologist, physiologist, and role-model-for-all, Jessica joins us this week and shows us how to use our brains for the first time in lightyears.
We welcome writer, director, actor, and now fight-trained action hero Bob Odenkirk to the show for a strut down the promenade of life. Bob tells us about everything from the early days to yesterday, the genesis of his new film Nobody, and his favorite chicken pot pie recipe, of course. Bon appétit.
The gents are thrilled to host their dear friend and boss on the pod this week: Mr. Ted Sarandos (Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer for Netflix). They talk shoppe, they talk turkey, and Will finallllly explains to the guys what "Netflix and chill" means. Ta-dum!
This week we take a wild ride through the brain of Mr. Stephen Colbert (host, comedian, pro skier). The gang examines Jason's 'pleasant hostility,' Stephen's Lord of the Rings memorabilia, and a few '100% true' stories.
"W. Kamau Bell"
We are joined this week by Mr. W. Kamau Bell, television host and stand-up comic, and wicked smart dude. He tells us about the birds and the bees, when to teach your children new things, and his grand ideas for Ozark's next season.
The incredibly talented Brad Paisley shares his perfect blend of country and comedy while we all blush with a crush. "I'm takin' my baby out into this cornfield tonight"... is exactly how we felt after the interview too.
Every episode is a gift from heaven, esp Conan
First heard of your podcast when Sean was in Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend, and i have been listening to all of your episodes ever since! Every Monday! At the very first hour of its release at 6am! (I'm from the Philippines so it's 6pm here, perfect afterwork listening).
I'm also obsessed with Jason Bateman ever since i watched Ozark. Can't wait for season 4!
So this episode is extra special since you have Conan. Seriously you guys made my day, you just don't know how happy you made me after a heavy workday. Looking forward to more episodes!
PS: Shoutout to all the listeners in Wisconsin

Thanks Team Coco!
Discovered this podscast when Sean was a guest at Conan’s podcast. I listened to all episodes right away. Can you believe it? My 3 favorite people together in a podcast? That’s like Christmas came early for me. Also it’s Monday, where’s the new episode? I woke up in the middle of the night just to listen to it.

The funniest episode so far. In this for my favorite Sean Hayes and Jason Bateman only to realize that Will Arnett turns out to be funnier.
