EP. 192 — Rick Glassman

Jameela is joined by actor & comedian Rick Glassman (Undateable, As We See It and the Take Your Shoes Off podcast) for a vulnerable & fun conversation about life, comedy and his superpower: honesty. The two discuss his later in life neurodivergent diagnosis, his personal experience with autism and those uncomfortable & awkward moments of life that we should all embrace. You’ll hear stories about masking, BDSM consent, society expectations and social norms upended and plenty more (no pants!) talk.

And in today’s episode we touched on something that a lot of you have been asking me to touch upon, which is autism and neurodivergence. Now, my guest this week is Rick Glassman, who is an amazing actor, comedian and the podcast host of “Take Your Shoes Off,” which I highly recommend as the weirdest lesson ever. He’s incredibly entertaining, but this episode is so raw and so thoughtful.
