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. 691: Owl Owl Hoot Hoot with Tony Cliff
Tony Cliff (the BUBBLE graphic novel artist!) joins for a discussion of the three (3) movies Jordan saw IN THEATERS this week, a strikingly authentic Italian deli in Pasadena where you buy sandwiches from a pile, and the Safeway apple fritter that was the best Tony has ever had. Plus, things get philosophical when Jesse's daughter questions Pac Man's name.
Ep. 690: Thicc Frizz with Niccole Thurman
Niccole Thurman (Shrill, The Opposition w/ Jordan Klepper) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the amazing accomplishments of kids that infuriated Jesse growing up, how Jordan hung on to paleontology as a dream job for a little too long, and how well the famous hunks of the 90's have aged.
Ep. 689: Utah Jizz with David Gborie
David Gborie joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Jordan's new visceral strategy for keeping his cat Bug from scratching up his new couch, Jesse's realization that "Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk" is the live entertainment experience he's been chasing since high school, and the transition of taquitos from a niche Mexican food to a staple at convenience store gas stations.
Ep. 688: Goat Snatch with Dave Hill
Dave Hill joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Gaahl the Norwegian black metal vocalist Dave met backstage at a German metal festival, the corpse paint drama raging in the heavy metal community, and the marching band that Dave has gotten testy with lately.
Ep. 687: Sun-Bleached Dildo with Travis McElroy
Travis McElroy joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of how we can take the Summer Boy ethos to the next level this year, Travis's new blacksmith hobby inspired by Forged in Fire, and what the Rocky franchise would look like if it took the path of The Fast and the Furious.
Ep. 686: Purge in My Pants with Rob Huebel
Rob Huebel joins Jordan and Jesse for an extra special MaxFunDrive episode! They talk about his role as the white guy Gary on Black-ish, his recent upgrade to his streaming setup that has him ready for the purge, and his recent sighting of Scott Bakula running through Griffith Park shirtless.
A great bunch of lads
As above a couple of lads just nattering about not an awful lot.
But in a good way.
You know what I mean?
best buds in your ear buds
Listen to a couple of these and before you know itJesse and Jordan will feel like old pals just making goofs and telling funny stories which will make your day every time.
Great guests too!
I love this show
