We’re down 40-Love, but we’re gonna turn this prison escape around! It’s a new episode of Go Fact Yourself!
Freddie Wong is a filmmaker and host of the podcast “Story Break” right here on the Maximum Fun Network. If you haven’t heard it, Freddie and the rest of the panel improvise silly stories for movies. That includes sequels for movies series like Star Wars and Boss Baby. What’s their secret for such creative ideas? It all starts with the basic understanding that every creative idea is stupid on some level. You can also hear Freddie on the “Dungeons and Daddies” podcast.
Competing against Freddie is Erin Foley, host of the podcast “Sports without Balls,” where she interviews women athletes and sports enthusiasts. She’ll tell us all about her favorite conversations that she’s had on the show and explain once and for all which sport is sexiest. Erin Foley’s comedy album “Deep Dive” is available now.
Our contestants are joined by guest co-host Allie Goertz in a show that was recorded earlier this year in front of a live audience at the Angel City Brewery! (So some of the stuff mentioned isn’t quite so timely anymore.)
