    Greg Heller Is Back!

    Greg Heller Is Back!

    Producer and writer Greg Heller returns to tell me about the podcast he claims is going to crush mine. He's been saying this for months now and sending me gifs of cans getting crushed. It's called Close to Death and debuts Oct 27. Greg hosts the first and last episodes of the six episode series, each of which explores an aspect of death. We talk about writing his own obituary with the help of a famed obit writer who didn't exactly love Greg, staging his own funeral with a death doula, parenthood, losing his dongle, hacky jokes, tentacle pr0n, finding a dead body on the beach when he was a kid, lobsters, things that annoy him, cooking, feeling desensitized to death, show running and so much more. We also took your questions and did a round of Hey Go F**k Yourself.

    Alison's Chicken Twirling, Dave Dameshek's Jump Humping, Robin Shorr's Just Fixin's

    Dave Dameshek and Robin Shorr are here! Dameshek's been altruistically cutting his own hair while Robin went on a double date that didn't really go well. Tony's been watching Squid Game along with Dave's 12 year old son and I want to know if soaking and jump humping are real. We also get into a discussion of Hanukkah and Jewish holidays in general including one that involves twirling a chicken or money. Plus Val Kilmer, jangly music, the Sheky Awards, and fighting with ding dongs on Instagram.

My best friend’s podcast

Long time listener since about 2012. During these difficult times, Alison has always been a source of comfort for me. This is an engaging podcast where she always dishes out the details, even at her own expense lol. She’s excellent at the interviews as Alison is very easy to get along with. Funny and laid back. The Thursday gang is always entertaining and I look forward to it. When I need more ARIYNB, I sometimes dig back into the archives circa 2015 when she was let go by her former employer and really picked up the heat with the Kim Jones’/Heller/Chef Jeff & her husband DaNiEl (rolls eyes). Keep up the good work, fart jokes & all ❤️
