After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill in the late 90s, Ravi Patel was an investment banker before a chance opportunity to do stand-up in Los Angeles left him fielding calls from agents. He went on to act in over 70 national commercials and land roles in films and TV, most notably Scrubs, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Master of None, before co-writing, directing, and starring in Meet the Patels, alongside his sister, Geeta.

In 2013 he helped to co-found This Saves Lives, a snack bar company whose mission is to end childhood malnutrition worldwide with fellow actors Kristen Bell, Todd Grinnell, and Ryan Devlin.

And most recently, his four-part original series, The Pursuit of Happiness, premiered on HBO Max.

Ravi joins us to talk about how his penchant for mischief has helped him succeed, why he had to travel around the world to discover values that Americans hold dear, and how creating safe spaces can help overcome our most deep-seated differences.
