One of my closest friends Jason Smith died suddenly on Friday, March 26, 2021.

Jason was absolutely the kindest and most generous person. He guided me when I got off from my first job. He gave me his old Playstation 3 when GTA V came out. He watched my dog. He started a business with me. He would always buy a round of drinks. He encouraged me. He made me laugh.

And I know I’m not the only one with a million stories of his generosity and loving spirit. I just want to share all of my great Jason stories. Jason Smith was one of the great ones. This is a tragedy.

And I know how much he loved his wife Steph and daughter Sarah. The way he talked about you two always. He talked to Tina Fey, about Sarah and how much he loved getting to know her. A million things he could have said to her, he talked about Sarah.

He was a major figure in podcasting, helping hundreds of people grow their podcasts with his work at several podcast companies.

I’ll miss him every day, and I know I’m not the only one. I’m devastated. He was so generous, and makes me wish I could be as giving as he was. He was an organ donor, he gave until the end, and then kept giving.You deserved more time, Jason. I just have so many good stories of hanging out with you, and the only story I want is where you and I are hanging out soon. I love you man.


I might add some updates here for myself. I just want to save some of the memories here. I dunno.

I saw Starburns Audio post about your passing, and after looking a little, it seems like many are remembering your absolutely huge contribution to podcasting. That makes me feel a little bit better. It seems like many people had a lot of affection for you, and it’s amazing to me to see your boundless generosity. How did you do it man…
