When you're the youngest of four kids in a single parent house you don't always get all of your needs met. That's why comedian, writer and over all inquisitor Jay Larson has so many unanswered interests. Jay uses a type writer because his grandfather did, who else does? Jay wants to be a classic rock vinyl guy but all that was ever played in his house was classical music. He loves old cars but can't even change oil let alone how many cylinders one has.

Each week Jay will explore his curiosities with two separate guests to help him better understand true Crime, Bird watching, Story Telling or surviving life in unusual living conditions. With 17 years as a stand up comedian, actor, writer and weird person who will talk to anyone Jay has acquired a vast range of friends. Which enables him to talk Vinyl records with Marc Maron, binoculars with House of Cards star Michael Kelly (Stamper), Storytelling with Ira Glass, Type Writers with a German ex-physis repairman, and many other random topics. While each topic acts as a thru line to each episode Larson digs deeper to explore how we are all connected to simple things in life.

It’s getting better

The first few episodes were weird. The format was very different. jay tried something no one else has before and I can’t hate for that. it’s not the crabfeast but it’s not supposed to be. A single guest 1on1 is much better than the first few episodes. Stop comparing what he does to what others do. It’s not a story telling podcast. It’s conversations, insight, and life

Loved the crabfeast. Love Jay’s perspective and comedy. Keep up the good work and stay on Sue about cooking those meatballs thoroughly!! We wouldn’t want anyone getting sea queasy.

Jay Larson is a strange genius who talks good & is funny too

I’ve seen your journey from the days of Rollerblades & smoothies to making a pretty decent margarita & always tinkering with fountains & wood. Keep doing what ya doin playa, such a great podcast. Never say ‘why don’t you like me’ like that again. Those beats from Future Ghost Bros. are legit!!
