Aimee Mann (The Art of Process, Mental Illness album) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of how Hugh Jackman is playing Jesse’s dream role of Professor Harold Hill in The Music Man on Broadway, the bartender at Dave and Busters who recognized Jordan, and whether or not more people in the audience wore bowling shoes in everyday life than own a fez. Plus, Aimee talks about her new MaxFun podcast that she hosts with Ted Leo, The Art of Process.
It’s MaxFunDrive time and Aimee has an amazing new challenge reward if we meet our goal of 25,000 new and upgrading donors — she’s going to write a song about Jordan’s cat, Bug! Donate so we can hear that song!

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.
