Skeptic Tank 33: Playin' Bas-ket-baaaall

Skeptic Tank 33: Playin’ Bas-ket-baaaall

I initially invited my friend Paul Morrissey over to talk about his former career as an on-air sports anchor in small towns all over the country. As an introduction to the talk about this job we got sidetracked by my interest in his stories about playing college basketball so I had enough material to just make a separate podcast on this as a subject. So the sports reporter stuff will have to wait until Wednesday. Check back then for the next episode and on Friday for the final part of our conversation that I’m not going to call a Skeptic Tank but I figured I’d let everyone hear it anyway.

Neal Brennan invited me over to his place to talk about his experiences being a film director. He’s the only guy I know, know who’s gotten to direct an actual Hollywood movie. It’s pretty cool. We covered that and our meanderings (that’s a word now) took us to standup, Occupy Wall Street, and a bunch of other places. There was a little chunk in the middle that I had to cut out because I ended up mentioning some private information about one of my buddies that I realized I shouldn’t have mentioned. It wasn’t even anything funny or interesting so I didn’t mind dropping it out anyway


Behold, the picture Neal talked about on the podcast.



Also, I got a sponsor for this episode. So weird, right? It’s Audible. And apparently, if you go to audiblepodcast.com/ari you get a free audiobook download. I don’t think there’s any catches. You just get a free audiobook to listen to in your car or on the plane or while you’re making beautiful love to your wife.


Enjoy this bit of Neal’s standup from the Laugh Factory. They have a shit ton of great clips up there. And even one or two of me.


Here are some of the other goofy photoshops people on Twitter came up with. The last one is sppppooooooookkkkyyyyyyy.
