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.

Pop culture comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply.

Each week the hosts, Amita Patel and Sean David Johnson, bring their knowledge of the entertainment industry along with their diverse viewpoints to cover the stories you need to know about and care about.
