This episode is SO MUCH FUN! Pete Holmes and Annabelle Gurwitch grace Go Fact Yourself with their wit, joy and, yes, abject frustration. And we learn fun facts about the performers. For example, Pete Holmes reveals that The New Yorker rejected his avocado cartoon, and calls into question the magazine’s editorial judgment. J. Keith reminds Annabelle Gurwitch that they both appeared in a pilot together that was so unmemorable...he had to tell her what it was.

J. Keith Van Straaten and Helen Hong sink to new lows with questions like, “What’s the difference between a treaty and an accord?”, and “What’s the difference between arbitration and mediation?” It’s madness!

In the end, we’ll find out which of our guests can be crowned the winner. Pete Holmes’ areas of expertise are Vegan Nutrition, Judd Apatow Movies, and Mad Men. Annabelle Gurwitch claims to know about Joni Mitchell's Blue, Commercials from the 1970s, and Secessionist Painters in Vienna. You know, painters like Gustav Klimt and Rudolf von Alt. Spoiler alert: Gurwitch does not get a chance to demonstrate her expertise of that subject.

1000 Cones - Jordan Jesse Go! Buy 1000 Strangers Ice Cream!

| 3 comments

The hosts of the comedy podcast Jordan Jesse Go! had an idea. What if they bought an ice cream cone for 1000 strangers? Just to make the world a better place? They launched a Kickstarter, and with the help of over 600 of their listeners, raised the money to do it.

Jordan and Jesse headed to Sweet Action Ice Cream in Denver for the big event. Each person who received a cone also got a card with the name of the Jordan Jesse Go! listener who bought it for them. It took six hours, some running around in the street, and even a (brief) visit to a pot dispensary, but when they were done, one thousand ice cream cones had been bought for folks wandering past the shop. And a better day was had by all.

You can find Jordan and Jesse's profane and hilarious show free in iTunes or online at http://www.maximumfun.org .

Jesse and Jordan thank all our Kickstarter supporters, especially:
