Jordan, Jesse GO! (general)
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.

Nick "Repeat" Adams joins Jordan and Jesse to talk about what memes and gifs they can create to push their new scripted sci-fi comedy podcast BUBBLE to the top of the iTunes charts, Nick's advocacy for putting a large statue or totem pole in or around your house to mark your territory, and Jesse's incredible Lyft miscommunication that left him criss-crossing Los Angeles for hours.
