Rolf Potts met me in Tompkins Square Park to talk to me about travel. Rolf wrote one of my favorite books of all time called Vagabonding. It’s all about long term travel. It influenced the hell out of me. And I was so stoked to be able to talk about getting out there in the world with such a well worn traveler like him.

Ari Eldjárn and I drove around in Iceland and did a podcast about that beautiful country while we did. Ari is a comedian in Reykjavik. One of the first comedians, to be more precise. He and I hung out for 3 days while I was there and so we got on the mics in his car and I just asked him questions about his country for a while. It’s one of those road trip episodes I do sometimes. So, come sit in the back, don’t interrupt us, and eavesdrop  on our conversation. Don’t forget to watch a new This Is Not Happening this Thursday night at 12am eastern, 11pm Central on Comedy Central.

Look at the rocks. The whole country is just covered lava.
