Prepare to run from the undead on this episode of Go Fact Yourself!
Alex Goldman just wrapped up eight years of hosting the podcast “Reply All.” Even though he’s naturally curious as a storyteller, he says he’s happy to finally have a break from the grind of his old show. Alex also has a lot of thoughts about how the culture of the internet has changed in the near-decade that he’s been podcasting and what his next project might be.
Liz Miele has been a comedian since she was 16. She says that the secret to going for the job at such an early age is not having friends. But she still had to deal with performing in a lot of venues that she wasn’t legally allowed to spend too much time in, like bars and strip clubs. Liz’s new special “The Ghost of Academic Future” will be available on September 6th, and her book Why Cats are A**holes is available now.
Our guests will compete to answer trivia about medicine, marathons and monsters.
