Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank
A comedy podcast to help better understand humanity and also to make fart jokes.

Monroe Martin came to my apartment to talk about his life as a foster kid. Monroe spent most of his childhood in and out of foster homes. He filled me in on what it was like in this fun conversation. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Tricia Donegan took me upstairs to the roof of her yoga studio on the Lower East Side to tell me all about how she got started in yoga. She ran the studio and the classes that I took most during Sober Octobert. Tricia is a really kind-hearted person who always made me feel warm before and after I got hot. It's an interested conversation with a non-comic about the stretchy arts.

Colin Wright met me in a park in New Orleans to tell me about the unique way he travels the world. Colin has been living in a different place every 4 months or so for years, while he writes books and keeps a great blog going, too. He really makes himself an expat over a tourist.

Bert Kreischer joined me to talk about alcohol. He's an expert on the subject. For real. We split the podcast up, doing the first half while he was 25 days into his sobriety, and then we did the 2nd half a week later when he was 3 days into a booze cruise.

Jay Larson met me at Venice High to talk about our old school days. We sat on the lawn like creeps and talked about high school until we got asked to leave. Great conversation and memories about the most carefree times of our lives. Jay's new special, Me Being Me, is out now at www.JayLarsonComedy.com. Pick it up and get a great laugh while supporting independent artists who make amazing comedy.

Ari goes to Hot Yoga. This is the worst thing to happen to anyone in the world in all of history. I want to do druuuuuuuugs! This sober Octobert stuff is moronic.

Jessica Michelle Singleton met me in LA to talk about her suicide attempt. It's waaaaay funnier than that. I love hearing about suicide and we did this without any crazy gravity to the subject. Just a good fun talk about ending it all.

Dave Smith came to my apartment to have a chat about America. Dave is a really well read staunch libertarian. So he breaks it down from an intelligent place that's not biased towards any powerful political party. (*Libertarians are not powerful). It's a great, accessible way to hear about the state of the United States.

Andrew Santino, Ron Funches, Dan Soder join me in Montreal for live podcast from the Just For Laughs festival and talked about the topic of regret. I don't know. I choose topics. It was great, though. So much fun. Those guys kill. And Bert Kreischer joins me for the intro and adds some regret of his own.
