Jordan, Jesse GO!

by Jesse Thorn · · · · 83 subscribers

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.

David Malki!, creator of the webcomic Wondermark, joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of his dramatic mid-business foot injury, the phantom kim chee fried rice stink cloud following Jordan around, and the gorgeous note that a mail carrier found in a mailbox on the job. Plus, Jesse attempts some home repairs with juicy results. Action Item: Postal workers, call in with your stories! 206-984-4FUN!
