John Hodgman is the namesake of the “Judge John Hodgman” podcast. On the show, he plays the role of a judge who hears litigants’ disputes and decides who’s right and who’s wrong. John will tell us about what it’s like being a fake judge on the internet and about his role on the animated FXX series “Dicktown.”
Danielle Radford is one of the hosts on MaxFun’s pro wrestling podcast “Tights and Fights.” Professional wrestling doesn’t have the best reputation for… much of anything really. But Danielle and her fellow hosts have tried to create a space for everyone who’s ever loved the art form, but rarely felt like it loved them back. Plus: find out about Danielle’s life as a paralegal!
Our guests will go deep with trivia on comics, kids and comedy.
