The What If? Podcast


Uofiieflw9s9bvtq6szs

The What If? Podcast asks strange, hilarious, paranormal, tough, and mysterious questions — then laughs their way to the best answers they can muster. Since launching in 2017, What If? has released more than 100 episodes and been downloaded over 1M times. Join your hosts—Spencer Wirth-Davis and Ryan Kopperud, along with their wide cast of guests, experts, and friends — for the ride. Guest: Ian Abramson is from Moreno Valley, California, where he learned to walk, read, and drive, but not in that order. His stand-up is a mix of precise wordplay, longer emotionally absurd jokes, and larger conceptual pieces. In 2014 Chicago Magazine named Ian “Best Experimental Comedian” and also listed him in a separate article as one of the “16 Comedians You Should See This Fall.” In 2015 Ian was LA Weekly’s Best Up-and-Coming Comedian and a New Face for the world renowned Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada. Dave Stone: Based in Los Angeles by way of Atlanta, Dave Stone made his television debut on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" in 2013 and in the same year was selected to the prestigious "New Faces" roster of the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Since then, he has been seen on season 8 of NBC's "Last Comic Standing", Viceland's "Flophouse", and Travel Channel's "Cheat Day Chow Down". When not headlining clubs across the country, Dave regularly tours with Craig Ferguson. He also can be heard voicing several characters on Adult Swim's "Squidbillies", co-hosting his new paranormal podcast "The Boogie Monster" with Kyle Kinane, and hosting his weekly alt-country radio show "The Gravy Boat".

Lydia Liza

Lydia Liza’s debut record, “Of Unsound Mind” dives deep into heartache, bad relationships, recovery, and questions what the hell “it all” means. A couple years after going viral for re-writing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in 2017, Lydia Liza got sober. And then she got writing. ​Not a lot of artists can wear the “teenage musical prodigy” hat and go on to find success as an adult, and not a lot of artists can write a smash novelty holiday song and go on to transcend the “viral sensation” label -- but with her first solo effort, Lydia Liza echoes N​ick Drake, Jeff Buckley and Laura Marling with ease. Add a sprinkle of nostalgic pop-punk, and Liza creates a tasteful, familiar and expansive soundscape that keeps the listener hooked.
