| 0 comments

When Kira is confronted with the prospect of the most awful person possible becoming the head of her planet’s government, that news comes with a mission from that same awful person. But when she tries to repo some farm equipment from her old terror cell, it’s more than just pizza ovens in peril. What character in Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was most foundational to the host’s sexualities? Should Sisko have joined O’Brien for darts a long time ago? How long does a resistance refractory period last? It’s the episode that gets a John Doman rookie card in mint condition.

It's a collision of comedians on this episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Scott Thompson is known for being part of the famed comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall. How did he become a part of such a well-regarded group of funny people? Let's just say that it all started with a table full of donuts. He'll explain the rest.

Scott faces off against comedian Jenny Yang. Growing up, she thought that she was destined for a career in political activism. But through a long road that included lobbying and poetry readings, she became a comedian and TV personality on the E! Network show "Busy Tonight".

In this episode, we'll learn about timeless movie stars, city planning and the expansive network of UCLA alumni.

Biz and Theresa discuss how confident we feel in our parenting choices…that is until someone else is suddenly there, watching! Maybe it's at the dinner table or in the car, we have worked hard to make these places the perfect balance of controlled chaos with minimal amounts of soul sucking. It works! It makes sense! Then a friend or relative comes to visit and even if they say nothing, their presence alone can suddenly makes us feel like a weirdo. Great! Plus Biz has a new insight, Theresa wakes up on the job and we talk to Mary DeMocker about her new book The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep.
