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

Jake Hanrahan talked to me about conflict reporting. He goes to war zones and tries to bring back word of what's actually going on in these areas. It's crazy. He brings back tons of footage. Look at PopularFront.co and you'll see what I'm talking about. He's not even welcome in a lot of these places. Once they put him in a Turkish prison! Really interesting stuff in this one.

You gotta excuse the sound a little. I recorded in the wrong button on my audio recorder so I had to end up using the laptop mic and it's not as good as the regular Sennheiser mic. You'll get used to it but the first 2 minutes you're gonna get annoyed. I'm telling you, this one is worth the trouble. Jake Hanrahan has some crazy stories!

Go support Jake in his quest to bring the truth about wars. Become patron. You can do $1, $5, 0r $10 and no matter what you're going to be helping a real independent guy do his thing. Patreon.com/PopularFront

Jimmy O'Brien from Jomboy Media came over and we had a great talk about baseball. Jimmy is crazy about the sport. And we share favorite teams! The greatest sports franchise of all time, The New York Yankees.

Jomboy has these amazing videos on Instagram that you should all check out. He l it’s how to read lips so he somehow gives insight into what is actually being screamed at opposing players during fights and stuff. It’s awesome. Check it out at https://www.instagram.com/jomboymedia/

Joe Deros and Louis Katz met me in a park on the outskirts of Chinatown just to shoot the crap. Derosa and I drank Natty Lights. Katz kept his mask on the whole time. We got stared at by old Chinese people. A black dude named Freedom talked to us for far too long. It was a fun episode in the record-anywhere spirit of the Skeptic Tank. The mailbag part of it is something I do on my patreon. Patreon.com/SkepticTank.

The Skanks table read live Pay Per View is Sunday, October 18 at 8pm Eastern time. You can get tickets here.

The Sunday show at Stress Factory is What's Your F**king Deal. Big Jay hosts it. I'm either doing audience mic or doing the last set. The Friday and Saturday shows are just regular standup headline sets by me. Sunday is the only weird one. Come to both if you want, they'll be completely different. Get tickets here

On my patreon, I do solo versions of mailbag questions from fans, sex/dating advice, arrest stories, and travel tales that I call Plogs. Also, I often put out ahead-of-time releases of podcasts before they go out to the public. Please join up to support me at patreon.com/arishaffir

This episode is literally brought to manscaped.com. Use promo code "Skeptic" to get 20% off your first order and FREE shipping. For real, I would not have done this episode if they weren't paying me. I would have just taken the week off. So thank them for making it happen. If you're gonna trim your balls anyway, why not let Manscaped.com trim them for you?

Dave Smith and I finish the last 4 hours of the craziest year of our state of the union podcasts we've ever done. There was just so much going on. We got into politics, the press, war, the way everybody's turning on each other, and the role of government. Dave was giving me eyes the whole time like he wanted more than just talk, if you get my drift. I 

Check out Dave's podcast "Part of the Problem" if you want more political talk.

Check out Dave's other podcast "Legion of Skanks" if you want to hear a guy who knows how to shut up about what happened after this podcast that we can never take back if he doesn't want to get muted.

Public Enemy - State of the Union

John Lennon - All I Want is Some Truth
