Plus, we’re joined by an actual elected official listener – Mayor Will Cauthen from Cramerton, North Carolina who tells us about what makes his small town special – from the Frolf on Goat Island to the origins of khaki and a famous heist that got turned into a Zach Galifianakis movie.

About the show

What is the dumbest show you can imagine? This award-winning show may be dumber. It has no content. No format. Yet it’s going on thirteen years of delighting hundreds of thousands of people. It’s been an iTunes editor’s choice, and Rolling Stone picked it as one of the world’s best comedy podcasts. It’s light in the dark, comfort in the cold, and a penguin in the pants (long story).

Join hosts Jesse Thorn (NPR’s Bullseye) and Jordan Morris (Comedy Central’s @Midnight) and a celebrity guest on a raucous, vulgar, and warm-hearted romp that might just leave you a better person. And will certainly make you dumber.
