MaxFunDrive. March 18-29 2024.

Brand new show—PLUS MaxFunDrive dates!

Posted by C.N. Josephs on 27th February 2024


We’ve got some exciting news for you: a great new show, and—drumroll, please—the dates for MaxFunDrive 2024!

Jordan Morris and Emily Fleming launch Free With Ads on MaxFun!

Free With Ads hosts Jordan Morris and Emily Fleming have a few things in common. For one, they’re both regulars on the hit YouTube series Good Mythical Morning; for another, they both wrote for TV’s @midnight. But, even more importantly, they’re both extremely passionate about “trashy” pop culture—and about saving a little money.

Those passions inspired their new podcast Free With Ads, a movie review show dedicated exclusively to movies that are available for free online. Why pay for streaming services when movies like Grease 2 and Dungeons and Dragons (not the Chris Pine one) can be watched for nothing more than the cost of enduring a few, loud unskippable ads?

“I love working with the folks at MaxFun. They’ve built an insanely fun and dedicated fan base who have tolerated my dumb jokes for almost twenty years. I’m so excited to bring more nonsense to the ear holes of the best podcast listeners in the world.”
— Jordan Morris
You can check out the first two episodes now to hear riveting discussions about Timecop (a 1994 sci-fi action film that Roger Ebert disparagingly called “a low-rent Terminator”) and He’s Just Not That Into You (a 2009 rom-com-dram that holds an encouraging 41% on Rotten Tomatoes).
“How lucky am I? Jordan and I love talking about movies and TV that repel many but thrill the hell out of us, and now I’m working with him doing exactly that! Maximum Fun is an exciting fit, full of vision and moxie between everyone involved. I hope listeners have as much fun listening as we do recording!”
— Emily Fleming
