About The Important Questions

The Important Questions features four weekly thoughts which seek to argue the importance of a seemingly stupid concept with humor, while also bringing a hint of learning power to brighten your minds.

The Important Questions started in December of 2015 with 3 episodes which would become 'The Early Tapes' demos. While Smitty was living far away, episodes were recorded in batches when they could be, ultimately leading to the creation of the first 8 episodes which were released starting October 13, 2016. 

Eventually Smitty moved nearby and episodes were released more consistently. The show eventually combined custom intros, different genres of the catchy theme song, and weekly artwork to go along with each episode. 

After a break in late 2017 into early 2018, a new format of show called How Low had 9 episodes released in the midst of the Important Questions episodes which kept content alive. How Low served its purpose but is indefinitely over as its own show. How Low questions occasionally will still make their way into part of an Important Questions show since the topics tend to be short and fit into the normal program. 

The Important Questions continues to accept questions over the site, over voicemail, and any other platform. The show is open to any and all guests wanting an appearance. Enjoy the show!
