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.

Elizabeth Gilbert (City of Girls, Big Magic) joins Jesse and special guest co-host Nick Adams for a discussion of Jesse and Liz's recent trips to Mexico City and, more specifically, the lucha libre wrestling spectacular they each saw while visiting, Liz's glamorous new book City of Girls and the legendary showgirl she talked to while researching it, and everyone's take on one of Jesse's favorite fruits, the cherimoya. Plus Hang It Up, Keep It Up makes a triumphant return!

Baron Vaughn (The New Negroes) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Jordan's newest binging obsession, the professional application of Baron's theater and pratfall education, and the thrilling results of last week's JJGo Calliseum. Which had more listeners in its column -- karate in real life, interactions with the Buffy-verse, or cutting mold off of food and eating it? Tune in to find out!

Liz Feldman (Dead to Me) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Jordan's big Mother's Day Energy and his early dinner with his mom and the ultimate stepdad Brad, the authenticity of the portrayal of Orange County in Liz's new Netflix show Dead to Me, and the amazing donut people in Jesse‚Äôs neighborhood.

Plus, we get into the newly-named Jordan, Jesse, Go! Colosseum to see who is represented more in the audience -- people who have ridden three-wheeled motorcycles (or in a sidecar), people who have replica weapons from a film, or people who have had an encounter with a supernatural being!

Give us a call or email if you want to stand up and be counted for this week's JJGo Coliseum -- 206-984-4FUN or jjgo@maximumfun.org!

Beth Appel and Sarah Claspell (Everything is Rent podcast) join Jordan for an episode sans Jesse for a discussion of Jordan's birthday sweets hangover and the tea he's using to get through it, Sarah's trip to the Ren Faire earlier in the day, and the ways everyone's mom feels about their creative work. Plus, Jordan's gross malt beverage taste test segment returns!
