Actor and comedian Tiffany Haddish sits down with us on 'opportunity day.' She tells about growing up in South Central Los Angeles and her journey to the present, the transformative power of Roger Rabbit, her new grocery store project, and of course, the healing benefits of the soursop fruit. As lovers of stone fruit, it's time to add some soursop to the mix here at Camp SmartLess.
Our hombre Fred Armisen comes to us via satellite uplink on another extra-special episode in Podland, USA. The hijinks never end, with Will & Sean making a documentary about Fred?s life from his actual childhood home, the dynamics of ?the real wink,? and strategy-talk on getting to the right elevator at the doctor?s office. It?s a real whirlwind folks: take your omega-3 fatty acids.
Yo, folks? it?s Sean Penn. Humanitarian, actor, director, writer, and surfer, Sean Penn joins us for a chat and a smoke break.

T.G.I.M!
We are blessed by our guest Octavia Spencer this week. Octavia is an Academy Award winning actor, producer, and author, and the first black actress to receive two consecutive Oscar noms. But we love her because she's an absolute joy to be around... and because her germ management skills are completely in-line with ours. Wipe down your surfaces & seat-back buttons, recline and relax, because we're at cruising altitude here on Air SmartLess.

Formula One race car driver Daniel Ricciardo cruises through to talk with the gang, discussing everything from Daniel?s water weight management system to Jason?s night in a Monaco jail. Let?s access the fear today? oh yes, there?s the flavor.
We shred some serious pod this week with the raddest dude of all: Tony Hawk. Tony teaches the newbs proper parlance, tells us about his foundation The Skatepark Project, and discusses his relationship with his only neck-tie. This one goes out to Tony?s violin teacher.
We?re surprised and delighted this fine Monday? by Mr. J.J. Abrams. This wildly creative filmmaker and musician gives us an hour inside his brain. We?re humbled by his request to audition for SmartLess advertising reads, we?re warned not to go down the rabbit-hole of modular synthesis, and we learn the genesis of the term ?blockbuster.? All of this while Sean wears his Tatooine hat to impress J.J. (who doesn?t even notice).
