In the new episode of Put This On, we (that's me, Jesse, and our director Ben Harrison) went to London to check out Savile Row, the world's most charming tweed merchant, and more.
Watch it! Share it!
Our globetrotting continues, Tuesday at PutThisOn.com.
Our thanks go out to the ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED NINETY FIVE new donors who signed up to support MaximumFun.org during our MaxFunDrive, to the thousands who already supported it and who increased their donations, to the hundreds who made challenge donations, and to everyone who spread the word and convinced a friend to support quality media.
We're proud to be supported by people who love our work. And that's the truth, Ruth.
Thank you gifts will be mailed in approximately six to eight weeks. Please begin enjoying the warm feeling in your heart immediately.
Of course, even now that the pledge drive is over, you can donate anytime. Thank you!
We've just left our goal of 1000 new donors in the dust. How many new donors can we get in the last three days of our MaxFunDrive? Could we make it to 1500??
If you haven't already supported your favorite shows, do it now! There's no time to waste!
We're now up to EIGHT HUNDRED EIGHTY SIX new monthly donors in the 2012 MaxFunDrive.
The drive ends on Sunday, so get in on the sweet pledge drive action now before it's too late!

We had a kick-ass day in the MaxFunDrive yesterday, and rocketed up to just shy of 40% of our goal!
And if you have: THANK YOU!
The Maximum Fun Drive is in full swing!
Our goal is 1000 new monthly donors to MaximumFun.org, and we're well on our way. As of this posting (Wednesday morning), we're at 216, or just a little under 22% of our goal! In addition, nearly 100 continuing donors have upped their donations!
A consortium of ONE HUNDRED existing monthly donors have also issued a challenge: for every new donor during the drive, they'll give a total of over SEVEN DOLLARS to Maximum Fun.
How could you not support something this awesome?
Our newest MaxFun show is International Waters!
International Waters is a pop-cultural comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply. Join me (Jesse Thorn) in the lawless waters off the coast of wherever, as a team of comedians from the United States battles one from the United Kingdom for WORLD SUPREMACY.
Our pilot episode features Paul Scheer and Janet Varney representing the US of A in a skirmish with Tom Parry and Josie Long in London, England. Plus an interview with director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), who was also kind enough to host a bonus round.
Listen to the show online using the player above, or subscribe to the show in iTunes now!
If you use a non-iTunes podcatcher, use this feed: http://www.maximumfun.org/feeds/iw.xml.
For the time being, we're planning on making International Waters a once-a-month event, with the next episode coming during the MaxFunDrive. Our hope is that the drive will generate the capital we need to keep the show running, so if you like our first episode and want to hear more, give generously and tell us you want more IW!
We just posted this new episode of Put This On over on that site. See if you can catch the cameo from one of JJGo's favorite guests.
We're retiring the old donors-only "TSOYA on the Radio" feed for Bullseye. Since we've upgraded the audio quality of the standard Bullseye feed, and are now podcasting the show in radio (or slightly-longer-than-radio) form, it had become redundant.
If you formerly subscribed to the donors-only feed, please subscribe to the regular Bullseye feed.
(If you're one of a few people who got a mini-podcast in the standard feed saying that feed had been discontinued - sorry, I accidentally posted it briefly to the regular feed instead of the donors feed. If you get the regular podcast, no need to do anything.)
