Podcast: Jordan, Jesse GO! Ep. 20: Sadness, etc.

| 0 comments


In this week's Jordan Jesse GO!, we discuss our joys and sadnesses.

Elderly Greeks
Jordan attended his house-mate Lauren's grand-Uncle's 80th birthday. Children insulted the uncle. Jordan is worried that the more comedy he does, the less he is able to directly experience life -- he just sees everything as comedy fodder.

Puppies, Etc

Podcast: Jordan, Jesse Go! Ep 19: Ask a Republican

| 1 comment


In this week's Jordan Jesse GO!, we discuss the misspent youths of others.

Introduction
Jesse and Jordan are in the jungles of Malaysia. They discuss, among other things, Veronica Mars, The Gilmore Girls and Entourage. Jordan is both drawn to and repelled by the latter. Can you explain it's appeal to us?
Ashley from Lubbock
Our Official Caller Ashley, a 17-year-old from Lubbock, calls in to tell us she's from Lubbock, not Houston as we had erroneously asserted. We don't think she should listen to Jordan, Jesse GO! in class. No one should listen to their walkmen/ipods/discmen/transistor radios in class unless the Giants are in the playoffs.
Ask a Republican
We are joined by the gracious and fascinating Richard Martin, a Republican representative from Ohio. Congressman Martin answers questions from us and from listeners.

Jordan Sings

By popular demand, the segment Jordan Sings returns. This week, he sings "The Big Rock Candy Mountain," a song about a hobo's paradise.

ACTION ITEMS
* What is the appeal of Entourage?
* What can we do to help Ashley?
