    2022 State Of The Union with Dave Smith

    2022 State Of The Union with Dave Smith

    Dave Smith joins me to have our annual (except last year) what’s up with America. We covered everything. From the new baby exterminator laws to the current President, to the media’s attack on Joe Rogan, to the crime wave (of which I’m responsible for some) to homelessness, to Elon Musk, to the war in Ukraine. Dave gives an honest and non-biased rundown of all the topics facing America and Americans today. Dave Smith is on a constant quest for freedom and Ari Shaffir is giving him a platform. It’s a long one, but listen to it in installments if you have to because there’s not a single part of this you want to miss. Also, the queen of England has been dead for quite some time.

    Stealing from Bobby Kelly with Joe List, Luis J. Gomez, and Kerryn Feehan

    Stealing from Bobby Kelly with Joe List, Luis J. Gomez, and Kerryn Feehan

    Joe List, Luis Gomez, and Keryn Feehan join me on my rooftop for a wild all-over-the-place conversation that started with friendship and ended in a love child for which 23 states wouldn’t allow early termination. These are 4 of the dumbest people you know . For real. List is probably the smartest because he knows how to spell the word Movie. Luis is obviously the dumbest. And all joking aside Ari is the smartest because of the heritage and also those people value education so even though I was a bad student, I was a bad student compared to them. But it’s still like super-intelligence compared to Luis and Kerryn. Joe is smart sort of. But obviously it’s Ari.

    Father Figure with Chris Distefano

    Father Figure with Chris Distefano

    Serial inside blaster and now father and comedian Chris Distefano talks to me about what it’s like to be a father. Chris was about as honest (and funny) as anyone I’ve ever talked to about this stuff. He admitted to the negatives and told me about the positives. Very funny and interesting conversation! 
    Chris is for real a hilarious standup comedian and he’s got a new Netflix special out today called Speshy Weshy. He named it that because he’s less mature than his daughter. Check him out killing on this special or bombing on a jumbotron in stadiums all over New York.

    In Plane Sight with Mike Cannon

    In Plane Sight with Mike Cannon

    Delta Clear applicant and standup comedian Mike Cannon met up with me at the St Louis Lambert International airport to discuss today’s hot button topic in a discussion you could only be at if you passed a rigorous screening process handled by top industry professionals. Now, I’m not really sure if the St Louis Airport is international. Actually, it would surprise me if any country has a direct flight to St Louis. What if St Louis had a ton of Cambodians on the QT. And there was one 18 hour flight directly from Phnom Peng to Lambert. Still, a whole airport for that? No way. Just go straight to a hidden airfield to unload all your “poppy.” Anyway, here’s the podcast.

    Nelson Muntz with Dan Soder

    Nelson Muntz with Dan Soder

    Dan Soder came over to talk about his special that came out nearly three years ago. "Son Of A Gary" on HBOMax. This podcast is three years in the making. I've been wanting to get Dan on to talk about his dad Gary since the release of his special, but then something happened and we never got around to it. 
    After we finished the episode, I had one last question to ask Dan but I forgot, so I drove all the way to his place just to ask him this one question, because I care so much about you, the listener. 
    Watch "Son Of A Gary" on HBOMax right now!

    Guide Me To Hell with Katie Hannigan

    Katie Hannigan sits down with me to tell me about her time as a NYC tour guide. It was a tawdry world of autistic tourist nerds and their dumb families. 
    Make sure to check out Katie’s new standup comedy album, “Feeling of Emptiness” and listen to her podcast, “Lady Journey” that she does with Sarah Tollemache every week.

Hey, Ari!

Big fan of your podcasts. I dig your unconventional approach to your content. Never afraid to record your episodes in all sorts of different places & environments, but always providing a relaxed atmosphere in which to have the longer form conversations & interviews with your guests. You also have a good mix of people in the show, from various avenues in your life. Particularly, the car ride episodes have been some of my favorites. Also, I really enjoy your eclectic taste in music, and that you list the ones you use in the description of the episodes. Keep up the great work!

Colin, from Baltimore
