Cannot recommend strongly enough

This is my absolute favorite Podcast. It’s hilarious, heartfelt, human, honest, and other h- adjectives. It has brought me joy and comfort in lonely times and is a true gift to humans.

This One's a Classic!

John Hodgeman is a very charming, kind, charismatic man. If you liked his vibe in the Mac vs PC commercials, you'll love him as a podcaster. He knows how to entertain and tell a good story. He's well suited to the roll of Judge Who Judges Things Which Hardly Matter. And Jesse Thorn makes a loveable Bailiff. Couldn't be happier to have such a great guy at the head of The Great Podcast Network Maximum Fun.

Whether or not you agree with his rulings, he makes the ride enjoyable with wit and entertaining anecdote. If the conceit of the podcast sounds enjoyable to you, then you'll likely enjoy it!
