WOW!! What a fun and entertaining episode!

From start to finish, my guest today had me laughing and wanting to hear more.  

On today’s show my guest is Arnie States.  

Arnie is the host of the Arnie States show but you might remember him as the former host of the Rob Arnie and Dawn Show which at its height, was rated the number one morning radio show in northern California and northern Nevada for over 10 years!

Today we talk about so many different things and if you know Arnie, you know he’s not afraid to cover taboo topics…

We loved Arnie’s candid conversation about depression and even his attempt at suicide back in 2012. Not surprisingly, Arnie manages to make us laugh while at the same time discussing heavy topics.

But today's episode is about much much more than just mental health as Arnie and I discuss his career in radio and his new found passion for performing stand up comedy.

We also cover Arnie’ journey as a lowly intern in Reno all the way to being inducted into the Nevada Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Arnie’s got stories for day’s (including one about Arnold Schwarzenegger) and we promise you will leave this episode with a big fat smile on your face!

As Arnie tells us, his main goal in life is to make people laugh and he certainly doesn't disappoint in today's episode.

You can find Arnie every weekday from 7-11 on his live podcast called the Arnie States Show or you can check him out on his website at

We are super proud of this episode and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!

See you next time for our 37th episode of the Just Hertz So Good Podcast!
