Description

The issues we tackle on The Problem With Jon Stewart are Too Big for TV™—so they spill over into the brilliantly titled The Problem With Jon Stewart podcast. Jon is joined by the staff and expert guests for nuanced discussions, updates on action items, and airing of grievances from writers over jokes that didn’t make the show.

The Problem With Jon Stewart is an Apple TV+ podcast produced by Busboy Productions.



Episode Date
Jon Talks to Mark Cuban: Billionaires, Basketball, and Bitcoin
00:46:50

We’re back, baby! We’re kicking off 2022 with billionaire/colonoscopy bargain hunter Mark Cuban. Jon and Mark discuss the American Dream, barriers to entry, and why tying healthcare to jobs makes no sense. And what’s a chat with a tech billionaire if crypto doesn’t come up? Jon is joined by show writers Tocarra Mallard and Rob Christensen to talk national anthems and Jon’s experience at the White House.

Jon Talks With Steve Kerr: The Nicest, Whitest Man in Basketball
00:49:46

Steve Kerr thinks he’s here to talk with Jon about his career, speaking out on social issues, and the racial and political dynamics of the NBA. And he does get to talk about those things, but not before enduring Jon’s pleas for him to coach the Knicks. Staff writers Jay and Henrik offer some color commentary as well.

The Problem With Guns (and Domestic Abusers)
00:37:38

Domestic violence is a predictor for gun violence, yet we have a problem enforcing laws that strip firearms from domestic abusers. Jon talks with head writer Chelsea Devantez about her experiences with these issues, possible solutions...and also, somehow, puppet TV shows from the '70s. Jon then talks with bounce musician Big Freedia about her documentary, Freedia Got a Gun, and how gun violence has affected her hometown of New Orleans.


Content warning: This episode deals with topics of domestic violence and gun violence. National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233

Like the annoying guy at a party who won’t shut up about Bitcoin, we have some investment advice: America is not investing enough in our veterans, both emotionally and financially. So today, Jon sits down with some staff who are very emotionally invested, and also talks to Professor Linda Bilmes about her proposed solution for investing more financially.
