#405: War Stories (Jake Hanrahan)

EJake 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.

#403: Mailbag (with Joe Derosa and Louis Katz in the park)

EJoe 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 pu...

#402: 2020 State of the Union Part 2 w/ Dave Smith

EDave 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. The Music Public Enemy - State of the Union John Lennon - All I Want is Some Truth Grimskunk - America Bruce Springsteen - This Land Is Your Land Joe Rogan - Hugh Hefner Please help support me at patreon.com/SkepticTank so I don't have to cry every time I lose a sponsor because I can't help but bring bestiality into an ad read if I think it's funny.

#401: The 2020 State of the Union part 1 (w/ Dave Smith)

EDave Smith came over to start our yearly talk on what's going on with America. Dave is a libertarian. So he's one of the more unbiased voices you'll get on politics because he has no political team. I mean, I guess Libertarian is a team, but it's not a team that ever wins so he's unbiased about the main two parties. This year, a bunch of stuff happened so we ended up having to stop ourselves after 3 hours and we're gonna come back and do a part 2 next week. The Music Rammstein - Amerika All American Me and You (chorus) Duran Duran - 911 Is A Joke Animaniacs - 50 States Subscribe to Dave Smith's podcast called "Part Of The Problem" Thank you to our sponsor YoKratom.com. Home of the $60 Kilo. Please use them for your Kratom needs, you junkies.

#400: Shoot To Kill (@DanishAndOneill) Ryan Oneill and Jeff Danis of Beach Cops and Boner City USA fame join Skeptic Tank to talk about getting shot at from 5 feet away and living to tell about it.

ERyan Oneill and Jeff Danis come on to talk about some criminal mastermind shooting 3-5 gunshots at Oneill from about 4 feet away. Unfortunately the guy missed. But something good will come from it. And the good is that D&O, The Danish and O'Neill, The Beach Cops boys are able to come on Skeptic Tank to talk over the harrowing experience. Harrowing for Ryan. Jeff was changing his kid's diaper or something, which I guess is also harrowing. Probably more harrowing when you think about it. Check out Beach Cops on Patreon. It's the best way to support them. $5 a month can keep these lunatics making crazy stuff.

ESteve Rannazzisi, Shane Gillis and Corinne Fisher came over to the Skeptic Tank Studio to talk about what it's like going through a mass internet backlash. It has many names, online mobs, cancel culture, outrage, but I like to call it e-rage. We talked about the similarities in all their situations while we detailed each of their experiences in more depth. I've been trying to get this podcast done for years and it did not disappoint. One of the most interesting conversations I've ever had on Skeptic Tank

#398: Simps Up, Ho's 'Round (@KerrynFeehan)

EKerryn Feehan came over to tell me about this wild world of getting dudes to just send you money. For nothing. I mean, legitimately for nothing. And then we started talking and she started telling me about how to get them to send you way more money for doing at least a little something. It's a crazy world we live in and it's full of simps. Also, we will tell you what a "simp" is while you listen to the episode. I honestly loved this one. I found it so interesting and entertaining and I hope you guys like it as much as I did.

EJoe List came over to tell me about his years working theft prevention at a Sears outside Boston. These are great stories about being exactly my enemy at one of my passions, shoplifting. Put this podcast down and go right now to watch Joe's new standup special, "I Hate Myself" on YouTube now. And check out his podcasts, "Tuesdays With Stories" and "Mindful Metal Jacket" This episode is brought to you by Kushy Dreams.

I've done right by my guidance counselor, Mrs Rabinowitz. She said she believed in me despite what my efforts showed and now she's right. RIP. Boston is home to the Super Beef Threeway.
