Judge John Hodgman Episode 38: Pepperoni Pauper

| 3 comments

Flynn and Helen are frequent guests of a particular pizzeria in Canada that offers free prize tickets on their pizza boxes. Flynn, Helen's boyfriend, goes to great lengths to find as many of these tickets as he can -- even rummaging through the trash to find discarded and unpeeled tickets. Helen finds this extremely embarrassing and feels that no slice of pie is worth the disgraceful effort of dumpster diving. Is Flynn's treasure hunt for free prizes an admirable quest? Is Helen's embarrassment of her boyfriend's trash digging ways justifiable? Only one man can decide!

Speaking of my pals at Radiolab...

Jad and Robert asked if I could visit their show to talk about one of my favorite comedy sketches of all time, Kurt & Kristen's "Kristen Schaal is a Horse."

It's in the intro to their newest episode, "Loops." If you're one of the 5% of podcast listeners who isn't already subscribed to Radiolab, I've embedded it below. Above, by the way, is the original video I saw of the sketch.

(Kristen, by the way, is also a past Sound of Young America guest.

  • Tig Notaro was on Conan last week. Missed it? We've got your back.
  • Over at the AV Club, Louis C.K. is rewarding devoted fans with with an amazingly detailed summary of how he went about making each episode in the second season of Louie.
  • Chris Hardwick is all over your television. Last weekend was the premiere of his show The Nerdist on BBC America. His guests were a geeky dream team of Jonah Ray, Matt Mira, Mike Phirman, Craig Ferguson and even Doctor Who’s Matt Smith! If you missed it, you can grab the first episode from itunes. And starting October 16, Hardwick will be hosting a new show for AMC called Talking Dead. It will be a live show that airs immediately after episodes of The Walking Dead. Hardwick will recap the most recent Walking Dead episode while talking to fans, actors and producers.
  • I’m excited to check out the first episode of The Dead Authors Podcast. It features time-traveling writer H.G. Wells (portrayed by alum Paul F. Tompkins) as he welcomes long-lost literary heroes to his show at L.A.’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater. Sounds smart and funny, right? Not sold yet? How about this: the first episode features Andy Richter as Emily Dickinson. Boom. Can’t miss.
  • Ira Glass will be touring Australia in January with a show called "Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass." He will be performing in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne. You can find the dates and ticket information here. Unrelated: there are some rather delightful stories circulating about Ira's recent performance in The Drunk Show at the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. Here he is talking about the experience with Marc Maron.

If you want to see highlights from the show that Ira doesn't remember, Brooklyn Vegan has some terrific photos of the evening (taken by David Andrako) that feature Mr. Glass arm wrestling on the floor with Leo Allen and forming a human pyramid with John Hodgman, Eugene Mirman and others.
