Comedian Greg Fitzsimmons has done stand-up everywhere you've looked, from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to Late Show with David Letterman to Late Night with Conan O'Brien to Chelsea Lately. Then there's his wildly successful podcast, Fitzdog Radio, as well as his Howard 101 radio show, the eponymously titled The Greg Fitzsimmons Show. Let's also talk about those appearances on @Midnight and Best Week Ever, among other shows, his acting on Lucky Louie, his writing gigs on Ellen, Politically Incorrect, Chelsea Handler and more and his book, Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons. And yet, despite those myriad accomplishments, would you believe that Fitzsimmons is a guy who says he lacks confidence because believes he's lost his mojo? Yep, that's where we got after analyzing his issue with those sorts of overconfident dudes who give you the hand-crushing shake and slap you on the shoulder. What does this has to do with his radio personality dad and being a middle-class kid at a high school filled with the children of billionaires? It's all in the episode, folks.

Since 2008, Big Think has been sharing big ideas from creative and curious minds. The Think Again podcast takes us out of our comfort zone, surprising our guests and Jason Gots, your host, with unexpected conversation starters from Big Think’s interview archives. Historian and journalist Jelani Cobb is the author of Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress and other books, and one of our most powerful writers on the complexities of race in America. Jelani is a staff writer at the New Yorker, where he’s given readers nuanced insight into gun culture, police brutality, the #blacklivesmatter movement, and much more, and a professor of Journalism at Columbia University.  Although Jelani was hoping the surprise format might involve watching fun nature videos, the topics that came up included mathematical symmetry as a defining principle of the universe, whether and to what extent liberals should try to empathize with Trump supporters, and the ethics of human-animal and human-robot relations. Sorry, Jelani. Surprise conversation starter interview clips in this episode: Jim Gaffigan on Political Intolerance, Glenn Cohen on AI Ethics, and Frank Wilczek on Symmetry

Rob Corddry created and co-stars in one of the funniest series on Adult Swim, "Children's Hospital," which is in its 7th and final (grrrrr) season! Rob's sharing the real-life story that inspired the onetime web series, and supplying plenty of behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the cast and shooting process. He's also talking about his time as a correspondent on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," what it was like taking classes from Amy Poehler at UCB, his own comedy troupe, Naked Babies, and the subtle art of improvised drama.
