FREE EPISODE! Now, we know what you're thinking: "Aren't all their episodes free?" Technically, yes. But you guys EARNED this episode by getting us to 1,083 new and recurring donors! Woo hoo! We promised in our last episode that if 1,000 people became new supporters of ONRAC in particular, we would release this live VeryVeryFunDay episode of us electrocuting John Hodgman with the Thync device, a transdermal electrical neurosignaling device that (supposedly) makes you either really, really PUMPED or really, really zonked, depending on what settings you apply. Two of us found it very unpleasant and often painful. Predict which two in the comments below (no spoilers)!
And if you haven't joined Maximum Fun yet, scroll up to that donate tab. There are all sorts of cool rewards for joining during the drive, and if we get to 1,500 new and upgrading ONRAC donors, we will record a commentary track for Star Wars, where Carrie watches it all the way through for the firs time EVER! MAKE THIS HAPPEN, FOLKS.

This week Bullseye with Jesse Thorn breaks format to bring you something from another great show on the Maximum Fun Network.
If you know John Hodgman , it's probably as The Deranged Millionaire on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, his appearances on Red Oaks or maybe from his books of world knowledge. Or, maybe, as the PC from the Mac vs. PC ads. What you might not know is that he's also a fake judge on the internet.
On Judge John Hodgman, he hears disputes from real people all over the world via Skype and tells them who's right and who's wrong. Jesse Thorn is the bailiff. The two cases you’ll be hearing are slightly truncated versions. If you want to hear the full versions, click below.
Mike brings the case against his mom, Maribeth. He says Maribeth knowingly took her daughter-in-law's recipes for a family cookbook and passed them off as her own. Maribeth says that the attribution was implied and there was no wrongdoing.
Naomi files suit against her husband, Spencer. She’s embarrassed by his loud and incessant heckling at baseball games. She’s frustrated that Spencer continues heckling at baseball games despite his promises that he’ll stop.
