Whether you’re in the mood to surf some waves or binge some TV, this episode of Go Fact Yourself is for you!
As an actor, Quinn Cummings saw success at an early age. She was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the film The Goodbye Girl. It was a great experience, but one that put a bit of a strain on her relationship with her mother… and her hair. She’ll explain. Quinn can be heard on the podcast “Quinn Cummings Gives Bad Advice”.
Like Quinn, Greg Behrendt also has experience giving others advice, especially with relationships. He’s written several books about love, including He’s Just Not That Into You and serves as a private life coach. What exactly are his qualifications? Just a 30-year comedy career, multiple books on the New York Times bestseller list and the fact that he survived cancer (twice).
The guests will compete to answer trivia questions about surf music, animated Netflix shows and their respective expertise on cats and dogs.
