    #397: Loss Prevention Officer (@JoeListComedy) The hilarious tales of his time stopping thieves like me. (sears, stealing, mall cop, I hate myself, tuesdays with stories, tuesgays

    Joe 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"

It was their life's mission to sponsor a podcast where a comic talks about ways around paying for things from stores that went out of business due to too much loss from shoplifting. 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.

    New Dog Old Tricks (with Justin Silver)

    Justin Silver comes onto Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank to tell us all about training dogs. He's been doing it for over a decade. Had a television show about it on CBS and another one in Hong Kong. This podcast was helpful and hilarious at the same time!

    394: Doing Rails (w/ Nick Cody) (nick cody virus train o&a portland australia myanmar shah shan state food poisoning toilet quarantine hotel bill burr 7 more minutes philly rant mid-flight brawl heggie luke

    Nick Cody joined me from Melbourne, Australia to tell me about his epic trip he took across America at 19 years old. Went from Portland to NY by train to save like $90. Idiot. But also very cool. The entire trip was just so he could go see the O&A show where Bill Burr would end up doing his Philly rant that I always refer to as "7 more minutes" and that still makes me laugh. Nick was in the audience for that amazing comic/crowd fight and I'm so jealous of that and this whole trip.

    #393: Shaped Like a Human Question Mark (@CarmenComedian)

    Carmen Lynch was a scoliosis nerdburger in hight school. She wore a back brace and couldn't make friends. She came on the podcast this week to tell me about it. How she dealt with having scoliosis at such an important age and how it's helped shape who she's become now. Get it? Shape? Anyway, she's a very well respected comic in NY. Ask any comedian in the city about her and they'll tell you she's really funny. Her new album, Vertically Challenged is available today!

    Corrine Fisher and Joe Derosa came to the studio to talk about the awesome and unique state NYC boozers find themselves in. It's summertime and none of the bars allow indoor seating. So many of them have gone to window service. You can get cocktails, beers, wine, and frozen drinks TO GO! It has turned the entire city into a giant street fair. It's amazing and people are really turning into their alcoholic butterflies.
