    Now I haven't followed everything Artie's done since the Stern Show, but I've generally tried to keep up with his TV interviews, watched a bunch those shows with Nick dePaulo (though have no interest in sports), and a few earlier Quitter podcast segments, and various other people's podcasts he's been on (Joe Rogan, Gilbert etc) .

    Thing is, while it's always fun to hear Artie, I've somehow found his post-Stern appearances/shows to be just slightly depressing, in that he never seemed to have quite the energy/enthusiasm/sharpness of his old self, or if you saw glimpses of it, it'd be brief, then he'd go back to sounding a bit defeated and downbeat. I'd started to figure that, well, maybe it's just not possible to go thru all he went thru and not lose something permanently comedy-wise.

    However, I've just been catching up on all the recent Quitter podcasts with Stuttering John, Hanzi, and the back and forth with Howard, and for the first time since "the incident" (or maybe since a bit before that, to be accurate...) it sounds like the old Artie is back - lively, passionate, honest, opinionated but reasonable, and most importantly funny. When he was asking Hanzi specifically which rappers and wrestlers had been told not to befriend him, I was holding my sides - it could have been an old Stern Show clip. It was also nice to be reminded of one of the best ever lines on the Stern Show "so how would you like it if I bought a girl in here who has a pelican fetish?!"

    Having admittedly not heard very many of his Quitter podcasts (again, the sports angle puts me off a bit I'm afraid) am I right to think that him getting all this Howard stuff off his chest seems to have really cleaned out his comedic sinuses, so to speak?

    No, the first several months of the podcast were much funnier. He's been doing too much schtick, too many publicity stunts, etc. lately. Most of his earlier podcasts were pretty good (except ones with costello)

    I pay the fee but pick and choose which podcasts to listen to. Not all are great. He does seem like he's less burdened now that he has said how he really feels about Howard.

    But his show is better than Stern's at this point.

    He is not quite the Artie of old. He must be getting hookers and such. Tell some of those stories.

    But the show is funny.

    Artie and Gilbert are featured in the trailer for this stand-up movie that was broadcast to Canadian theaters tonight. Artie looks as good as he feels.
