Tangentially Speaking

Organic, revealing conversation with fascinating, freaky folks.
Ever wanted to hang with a dominatrix, comedian, famous health guru, or Italian prince? Here's your chance. Tangentially Speaking is dedicated to the idea that good conversation is organic, revelatory, and free to go down unexpected paths.

31 - Ari Shaffir


Comedian, Ari Shaffir and I talk about everything from Elvis, to fat Jesus, to our private fears to advice on pissing in public in this podcast that flows deep and wide as the mighty Mississippi.


  • I Wonder (Rodriguez)
  • Sugar Man (Rodriguez)
  • Lay Lady Lay (Dylan) 
  • Seamus (Pink Floyd)
  • Smoke Alarm (Carsie Blanton)


30 - Duncan Trussell & Daniele Bolelli


Duncan is the madman who first got me into podcasting — as well as various other kinds of trouble — so it's fitting that he and our mutual pal, Daniele help me celebrate this 30th episode of Tangentially Speaking. There must be some numerical convergence there: 3 & 30. Our friend Kyle Del Bonis joined us on the spur of the moment and although we only had 3 mics, he chipped in some of his characteristically deep shit. 

Music:  Down in the Hole (domaje), Jungle Love (Steve Miller Band), and the great Carsie Blanton plays us out with Smoke Alarm.
