With news yesterday that a new podcast from Kevin from 'The Office' is in the works, it seems that everyone is starting up one.
Hayes released a statement about how the pod came about.
"The three of us have been friends for a long time and have always been trying to find a way to work together," he said. "Jason and I were casually talking about podcasts and how fun it would be to do one and we wanted to include a third person. So we went through my Rolodex and wouldn’t you know, Arnett was first.
"We are united not only by our shared professions but our innate curiosity. And, during this stay at home crisis, we thought, why not ask a bunch of smart and talented people questions about the world instead of constantly bothering our spouses.
"We really just wanted to create an atmosphere where we can be authentically us in our humor and thirst for understanding and invite the audience to laugh and learn along with us."
The series is thus set to connect and unite people from all walks of life. They'll share their experiences through thoughtful dialogue and humor.
There's also an element of surprise to the show. Each episode starts with one of the hosts revealing his mystery guest to the other two and to listeners.
The conversation is improvised and will include lots of humour as well as delving deeper.
Will Ferrell, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Seth Rogen are among the guests. Awkwafina, Dax Shepard, Melissa McCarthy, Mara Gay and Bill Simmons will also feature.
'Smartless' premieres on July 20th. New episodes air on Mondays via iTunes, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts.
