Judge John Hodgman Episode 181: Amicus Grief

| 0 comments

Will brings the case against his friend Moby. Moby has constructed a "friendship and acquaintance theory" that helps her navigate the relationships in her life. She's entirely upfront about which people in her life are acquaintances, and which are friends. She says it helps her maintain better relationships. Will thinks Moby has gone overboard with the theory, and it's alienating her from other people. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to Christian Philippe Roulleau for suggesting this week's case name! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put a call for submissions.

WHERE CAN I SEE JUDGE HODGMAN IN REAL LIFE?

Great question! Judge Hodgman is out on the road right now, touring the Midwest and Northeast United States! Chicago! Milwaukee! Akron! Hartford! and more. Find a tourdate in your area here!

Ross and Carrie Meet Jon Ronson: Butt Edition

| 0 comments

BONUS MAXFUNWEEK EPISODE! In this special interview episode, Carrie has a chat with Jon Ronson, bestselling author of The Men Who Stare at Goats, The Psychopath Test, and Frank. And by a chat, we mean they devise horribly accusatory questions and make each other take lie detector tests. It's all fun and games until Jon's butt gets brought up. Plus, hear Ross' reactions as he listens along with you!

As MaxFunWeek draws to a close, we'd like to thank you all for all of the reviews, Adventure Zone drawings, episode shares, and everything else. We hope everyone enjoyed the first MaxFunWeek as much as we did!

Go to town, email the results to lindsay@maximumfun.org, share it with the world on Facebook or Twitter (don't forget the #MaxFunWeek hashtag!), and you'll be in the running for a t-shirt or poster of your choice from the MaxFunStore, thanks to our friends at Topatoco.
