Episode notes

Head to Tosche station and make a stop at the royal palace, it’s a new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Yeardley Smith has been the voice of Lisa Simpson since 1989. Yeardley’s normal voice actually sounds very similar to the voice of her famous character, but she’ll explain the subtle ways that it’s changed over the years. You can hear Yeardley on “The Simpsons” and on the true crime podcast “Small Town Dicks.” Plus, she was an expert on episode 57 of Go Fact Yourself!

Ryan Kalil is a ten-year veteran of the NFL. He played center for the Carolina Panthers for most of his career. Even though he’s spent most of his life as an athlete, his early passions were steeped in pop culture and comedy. He’ll tell us about how his love for superheroes led to him becoming a jock. Ryan is also the founder of the production company Mortal Media.

Our guests will answer questions about the dark side of the force, the strong side of sports and the Walt Disney family of entertainment.
