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.

Justin McElroy ( My Brother, My Brother and Me) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the other meaning of CBT (cock and ball torture), Justin's favorite quarantine drinks (White Claw + Vodka = Clawdka), and Jordan's new kitchen accent to help spice up his quarantine cooking (a portable island he can set stuff on). It's the Max Fun Drive! We are so thankful to everyone who helps support the show! If you donate at the $10 level you unlock the ability to buy as many pins as you want from all of the Max Fun shows!
