    I'm listening to episode 219 and I think artie said he stabbed himself after he was fired from stern? Did I hear that right? I thought he stabbed himself and then got fired.

    Also, is there bad blood between him and sabion?

    It's towards the end of podcast 219. I'm pretty sure he said he got fired and then stabbed himself. Why did I think it was the other way around?

    1. He's so fucking stoned now he doesnt remember shit

    -or-

    2. This was a major revelation which means the cover story we have heated last 6 years was bs. About a thousand other implications too.

    I think it came out a while back, that he was told by Sirius not to come back and that is what led to the "suicide" attempt. He had been coming in obviously high, and was told to "take some time off".

    Would make sense. I never listened to his entire last show but according to multiple accounts 50 cent told him to get out the studio because he was obviously high and Gary and Sabean then told him to go home

    On episode 218 artie's unfunny sidekick called sabean "our guy". It sounded pretty sarcastic. Anyone know anything about that?
    While I'm at it, what's the story with the fallout over bachetti?

    I don't think Artie was fired as much as he knew he'd be fired for checking himself out of rehab early, breaking the ultimatum they gave him.

    Regarding Bocchetti, he was on the Race Wars podcast - which is broadcast live on SiriusXM - and simply said he's sick of Artie making fun of him whenever he's on AQP.

    For whatever reason, Artie took this as a huge insult, positing that since he had plucked Mike out of obscurity, he should be able to treat him like dirt.

    So is it about time for him to attempt suicide again?

    Haven't you heard? Artie's doing a new stand-up special with Netflix and just had a meeting with NBC!

    I mostly enjoy the podcast, but artie has to work on maintaining his voice level. I find myself turning the volume up and down constantly due to his changing voice volume. Fucking addict has been doing radio for fifteen years now. He should know how talk on the radio by now. I guess he really is a lost cause.

    So he is a multi-time confirmed arrogant prick with way too high of a self-image (see the previous Sal & Richard treatment).

    I think that has a lot to do with his "producer". It's also why he constantly bangs on the table or mic which is funny considering Dan gave Geno a ton of shit for that at one point.

    Bochetti is a wack packer he should be happy Artie has given him any notoriety at all.

    Bochetti wants to take himself seriously now because hes in love with Stacy Prussman. Dude is a joke.

    Most of arties hang arounds suck. Aerie can be funny, but his guest instincts stink.

    I'm sure he is happy for what Artie has done for him, but unlike a true Wack Packer, Mike is aware of when the abuse crosses a line.

    Those last few Bocchetti appearances on AQP were rough. Artie had moved from making light of Mike's obvious foibles to openly resenting him for them.

    What do you think offended Bochetti? All I remember is Artie playing that recording of Bochetti talking to Stacy Prussman's cat and mocking it.


    I suppose that is what made Bochetti mad because the fat dumb shit actually thinks he has a shot at Stacy

    Bochetti, my man, you are in the friend zone.

    Blob should shut the fuck up and take whatever attention he can get. Plucked from obscurity is putting it in a good light. Blob was living with his mom sleeping until 5 in the afternoon and not doing jack shit before Artie put him on the Nick and Artie show. I hate blob more than I have ever hated someone on tv before and hearing him complain about Artie makes me hate him more. Fuck Artie, but blob has no business getting cunty with anyone about how they treat him. He deserves so much worse
