    I'm revealing this because, well...the show sucks and I found the pattern.

    Here's how every interview goes:

    Stern: You must get a lot of chicks being a movie star and all
    Star: Um, I’ve been married for 15 years
    Stern: Yeah, but you get a lot of girls throwing themselves at you anyway…right? I mean that’s got to be hard, right?
    Star: I’m here to talk about my movie
    Stern: Oh yeah….hey, do you watch America’s got Talent?
    Star: My kids watch it.
    Stern: Oh, because I’m on there….say, how big is your cock? Beer Can Thick?

    Robin Googles guest during the interview. So she is not listening. Then she interrupts. She mentions a fun fact she just discovered on IMDB....which the guest explains is not correct and has been debunked many times.

    God for fucking bid Quivers is informed that a guest is coming in before they enter the studio.....lazy fat fuck is she!

    Howard is briefed during the break before the guest comes in. He has a stack of already known or incorrect 'facts' on guest.
    Stern not listening to the guest because he has 8 instant message boxes blinking on his monitor......one from the janitor who has an alleged funny quip for Howard to say and claim it was his own thought. .

    Doug Stanhope's last podcast let in a brief nugget. Besides the story we know about Doug's mother, Doug told them in pre-interview about Bingo driving around Bisbee and stealing all the street signs. He wanted to tell that one on air, but was told he could not by the staff.

    Pretty obvious 112 Productions hate lawsuits, unless they are the plaintiff, of course.....

    It is fun and funny when Howard is (fake) annoyed when he picks up the phone on Hanzi.

    Howard: "What do you want now Hanzi?!"
    Hanzi: "I don't know. You called me, mother fucker!"

    Howard is known worldwide for his interview abilities, he asks the questions no one else asks and doesn't give 10-15 minute softball interviews like the others.

    I love it when a big name guest tells Howard to shut up and let him answer the question!

    I also hate how Howard wraps up every interview with, "Well we've said it all" or "Well, you've said it all". Makes me mental.

    Howard is known worldwide for asking people how big their cock is.

    He hasn't been a world class interviewer in years.

    My favorite moment of Howard is asking Steven Tyler about the song "Angel" and Howard said it was co-written by Brad Whitford and it was about drugs and it was never a hit. Steven said it was co-written by Desmond Child and it wasn't about drugs. Howard told him he was wrong. Steven started to sign the song and say it was definitely Child and Howard still argued with him.

    BTW, Angel was the biggest hit for Aerosmith other than I Don't Want to Miss A Thing.

    Another Hmus-ism, is "let's bring this back around" or let's get back on track. If Hmus wasn't talking about himself, the interview wouldn't have gotten off track.

    Shitty interviewer to make the interview about him....

    Stern will also ask the guest how much he/she made from the show or project being promoted, as well as the guest's net worth.

    Howard throws out the same set of questions in most interviews and occasionally a guest slips up and gives a revealing answer. This will get some mention in the online rags which will crow about what a masterful interviewer Howard is.

    You guys forgot the part where Howard interviews a musician or actor that has been famous for decades - say Slash - and Howard asks only questions about the beginning of their career - say Guns and Roses - and never talks about anything else.

    And then you listen to a previous interview with that same celebrity - and Howard has asked the exact same questions. Each fucking time the guest comes in.

    Tedium.

    I was born in Bisbee. It blows my mind when it is mentioned on the Stern show. It is so remote and inaccessible by modern standards, it is weird to hear it get a mention. Never understood why Stanhope chose it. It is a two hour drive to the nearest modern airport. There is one grocery store in the area. The desert is still wild and full of coyotes and scorpions and deer that walk into backyards. It is pretty primitive for a modern town.

    The other move is asking a musician how much trim they get....Honestly, Donovan talking about how many birds he bedded before electricity is about as interesting as what he ate at Nobu last night.

    exactly, Sperm68 instead of repeating what Bobo or fckn Maryanne say about how great the Wigfag is, really listen to the interviews, hear him cut people off, say the same childish stupid questions.....in other words get out of the sheep syndrone and wake up.
