Jordan, Jesse GO!
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.

Comedian and actor Steve Agee joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Steve's video game hiatus, Peter Dinklage sightings, and the Max Fun team's run-in with an unsavory character on the streets of Los Angeles.

PROS: Great coffee, burgeoning art scene, artisanal vape shops. CONS: Separated from the outside world by a man-made bubble, murderous beasts from the outside are slowly invading, long waits for brunch.
