Dark Tank
Dark Tank
Dark Tank is a podcast where white people try their best.

In each episode of Dark Tank, Yedoye Travis asks a melanin deficient guest to undo the mistakes of the past by pitching solutions to pressing minority issues--to a panel of people of color. We're solving racism, one white ego at a time.

Jane Harrison
Jane Harrison
Jane Harrison got her start in San Francisco, but was lured to Chicago by the promise of hot dogs and orgasms. She found at least one of those things on a consistent basis. Her frank material, delivered in her smoky radio voice, only makes people uncomfortable who deserve to be uncomfortable. For everyone else, her act is a feet-up, hair-down, mic-drop tour de farce. She's performed in SF Sketchfest, at Cobb's Comedy Club, the San Francisco Punch Line, and the Outside Lands Music Festival. She's currently in talks with a guy at a bar who makes her nervous.
