Judge John Hodgman Episode 185: Campering with the Evidence

| 6 comments

Dale brings the case against her husband, Shawn. Dale bought a small trailer, intending to convert it to a food truck for her business. She's figured out it isn't suitable as a food truck, and now she has plans to make it into a small camper. Shawn says the trailer won't work as a camper, either, and that it's time to sell it. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to Joe Pritchard for suggesting this week's case name!

Pee-wee Lives! Paul Reubens on his Past and Pee-wee Herman's Future

Paul Reubens is famous for being the creator and embodiment of Pee-wee Herman. Pee-wee has appeared in stage shows, on TV, and in movies for almost 30 years -- from cameos in movies like Cheech and Chong's Next Movie, to his first special on HBO, two feature films in the 1980s, and a successful run on Broadway just a few years ago.

So why has the character of Pee-wee Herman endured? Maybe it's because Reubens worked so hard to make Pee-wee seem real.

Reubens has been busy the last few years with a new stage show, putting together the next Pee-wee Herman movie and now with the release of Pee-wee's Playhouse on Blu-ray.

Reubens will talk about growing up in a circus town, how Pee-wee almost appeared on the Surreal Life, and the latest details on a brand new Pee-wee Herman movie.

The remastered Blu-ray edition of Pee-wee’s Playhouse is available now from Shout Factory.

Kimbra on “The Song That Changed My Life”: The Mars Volta's "Cicatriz E.S.P."

If you've heard the Grammy-winning mega-hit, “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye last year -- and who didn't? -- then you already know Kimbra, who performed the female vocals on the record.

But the avant-pop musician had already been performing and recording for a decade. As a teenager growing up in New Zealand, she was writing music, playing guitar, and exploring the musical landscape.

Kimbra says that "Cicatriz E.S.P." by The Mars Volta showed her production tricks and psychedelic sounds she had never experienced before.

You can hear some of that psychedelic influence on her new album, The Golden Echo.

Aasif Mandvi is "No Land's Man"

You probably know Aasif Mandvi as the Senior Muslim Correspondent on The Daily Show. He says he's probably not the best person to represent Muslim culture. But then again, that’s kind of the point. (He’ll explain.)

Mandvi had already been acting on the stage and screen for many years when he was called to audition for The Daily Show in 2006. And though he's been a mainstay of the show for seven years, he's continued to write and act in other projects, like the 2011 indie comedy Today's Special and the upcoming HBO series The Brink.

Mandvi talks to us about how he found himself making a 9/11 joke on his very first day at The Daily Show, what it was like being an Indian kid growing up in Northern England and Florida, and that time he almost got punched by a member of Congress.

Aasif Mandvi's new book of personal essays is available now. It’s called No Land’s Man.

Americans Asterios Kokkinos and Amanda Meadows take on Brits Andy Zaltzman and Josie Long for ice-cream tasting, extreme wildlife shows and slash/fic with Dave Holmes.

As our respective nations mark Veterans and Remembrance Day, Baskin Robins has released a really inappropriate tribute. Doc Brown and The Doctor get sensual and consensual and we ask: do sharks have taints?

Written by Sarah Morgan.

Other useful links this week:

Asterios Kokkinos wants to recommend KC Green and Anthony Clark’s webcomic Back and to plug his own book The Enemies of Twenty-Something Mega Man.

Amanda Meadows wants to plug Devastator Press and their new anime / Japanese popculture special, Otaku and recommends John Darnielle (of The Mountain Goats) new novel, Wolf in White Van, which pretty much everyone else seems to be recommending too. Catch his Bullseye interview about the novel, here.

Andy Zaltzman wants to plug The Bugle Podcast and his own Satirist For Hire tour dates. Andy recommends cricket.

Josie Long sort of doesn’t want to recommend TV show, The Following, but is currently watching it anyway. She’s enthusiastic about UK comic book artists Tom Humberstone and Stephen Collins, both of whom have just released new collections. Josie’s going to be touring in 2015, find dates here.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and hosts his live quiz show, The Friday Forty at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month and recommends the band Gentlemen Rogues.

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Jill Barber

Biz and Theresa admit we're sometimes in a rut. In fact, as moms we've been in almost every kind of rut there is (other than PODCASTING RUT, obvi). The question is how to get out of them? We propose inventing a new rut that's actually an enjoyable place to be. Plus, Biz gets a free car wash, Theresa discovers a fifth food group called "fruit leathers," and we chat with singer-songwriter (and new mom) Jill Barber, who shares her secret for switching gears between loving mommy and live musician.

Come over to our facebook page where we invite you to share what kind of rut you're in and what you're doing about it! (Or, if you like a tad more privacy than fb allows, post your comments to the episode thread on the MaxFun forum!)
