Des Bishop came over to Skeptic Tank headquarters (my apartment) to tell me about Ireland. Des moved there from Queens when he was a teenager and managed to go from a Brooklyn problem child, to one of Ireland’s most successful comedians. He tells me about his observations of the people and the land of Ireland, with some history and some stories. Have a happy and drunk St Patrick’s Day everybody!

And this is the guy who snapped his ankle in Boise and barely even felt it. He was honestly more upset that he messed up his chance to meet me than he was with his foot pointing to the gates of hell.

Rachel Simmons met me to talk about her research on female development and confidence. She just came out with a new book on the subject so we talked about that, about the pains of doing press, and she craps all over my water bottle. Rachel was my friend in high school and she’s continued to be one of the most interesting people in my life.


This is Rachel’s third book on the subject of female development and it was a great excuse to catch up with her. Buy her book wherever you buy books or at Amazon.
