Stand-up comic David Heti invites a guest to air and discuss a grievance against him. Accusation, argumentation, recrimination and more, it’s an intimate, honest, and—at least for David—generally quite entirely uncomfortable exchange.
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Chris Durning, E11||Friend and musician Chris Durning hits on a part of the way I am that I'd never really thought of before. Maybe he's right.||6/1/14||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Nick Flanagan, E10||Comic (and musician) Nick Flanagan doesn't want me sharing my thoughts or feelings with our community. It makes him uncomfortable with himself, apparently.||2/20/14||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Sasha Manoli, E09||Comedy producer Sasha Manoli thinks it's ok to just go around agreeing to things and then changing her mind. No, not really. Vegas, "c**t" and apparently not making very nice with other comics.||12/4/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Dom Paré, E08||Comic Dom Paré doesn't really hold back. In addition to just talking all over about the world of stand-up, he tells me what I've done to alienate others in the stand-up community. Honest, thoughtful, direct and maybe just a little bit bitter,||11/28/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Mike, E07||Very good old friend Mike, with love and concern and then irritation, calls me on my general pessimistic outlook and inappropriate gynaecological favour-askings. He also takes issue with at least one past guest, which really isn’t on me. Much warmth,||10/3/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Margaux Williamson, E06||Artist Margaux Williamson explains to David that she's perfectly ok with him charging his roommate an unfair rent. It kind of cuts to the bone.||8/26/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Daniel, E05||With an all too rare honesty, warmth and matter-of-factness, Daniel will tell you what's on his mind.

||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Hayley Imerman, E04||About a couch. David and architect friend Hayley Imerman try and suss it out as to whose it is and where and why and what happened. All this time, so uncomfortably comfy.||7/11/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Eric Andrews, E03||Self-proclaimed "a bit shy and a bit awkward" comic Eric Andrews kind of plays around with the form or something. I'm still not really sure what he did or what were his intentions, but it was exhausting and I really enjoyed myself.||5/29/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitI Have a Problem, With David Heti: Nicholas Hune-Brown, E02||David and old friend and Toronto-based journalist Nicholas Hune-Brown discuss a ride home from the bar gone wrong.

A very personal look into the mind of a comic
While comedy is often full of personal stories and self-deprecating humor, one often suspects that most of it is made up. You don't feel as if you're getting to really know the comic. This, however, is a very raw and intimate look into David Heti's life and personality. He's a very genuinely funny (and strange) guy.
