What is the dumbest show you can imagine? This award-winning show may be dumber.
It has no content. No format. Yet it's going on ten years of delighting hundreds of thousands of people. It's been an iTunes editors choice, and Rolling Stone picked it as one of the world's best comedy podcasts. It's light in the dark, comfort in the cold and a penguin in the pants (long story).
Join hosts Jesse Thorn (NPR's Bullseye) and Jordan Morris (Comedy Central's @Midnight) and a celebrity guest on a raucous, vulgar and warm-hearted romp that will probably leave you a better person. And will certainly make you dumber.
Ep. 687: Sun-Bleached Dildo with Travis McElroy

Shootin' the Bries - Episode 2
We've got something special interrupting your feed today… in 2018, former cheesemongers Jordan Morris and John Hodgman recorded an episode of a one-off podcast called Shootin' the Bries for the Max Fun Drive. And now they have reunited for ANOTHER special episode!
Ep. 685: The Paninissance with Dave Shumka and Graham Clark
Dave Shumka and Graham Clark join Jordan and Jesse for the first week of MaxFunDrive 2021!! They get into all the old Los Angeles restaurants that advertise pastrami, but actually have a different specialty that everyone orders, the time Dave's family rented a video camera to tape him singing the Gilligan's Island theme song, and the sad sitcom intros that made you realize you were up too late when you were a kid. Plus, we get a call from one of Jordan's favorite guys!
It's the first week of MAXFUNDRIVE! You can support the show by going to MaximumFun.org/join!

Plus, Jordan challenges Josh and Jesse to a game of guessing AI pickup lines!
Ep. 683: Hot Girl Bummer with Cristela Alonzo
