Ever had a question you were so totally curious about but didn't want to dive down an endless Google wormhole so you somehow end up researching how many characters on TV were portrayed by multiple actresses instead of your original query of the sentience of badgers and what they really know. Don't freak. Jonathan Van Ness is here for you and he smells what you're stepping in.
"Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness" is a relatively new podcast on the Maximum Fun Network, hosted by Jonathan Van Ness (who you all might know from his hilarious all-over-the-place recaps of Game of Thrones on Funny or Die's Gay of Thrones). Jonathan is very curious about a lot of things like what the differences between Sunni and Shia are but also desperately wants to know all about menstrual cups.
Each episode, Jonathan brings on an expert guest so that he can get all of his questions answered, and hopefully inform his audience too. Jonathan isn't afraid to ask questions and his podcast is definitely more entertaining than a late-night Google sesh. Jonathan is as excitable as a newborn puppy. Everything is fascinating to him and therefore everything becomes more fascinating to the listener. Jonathan wants us all to expand our baby brains one half an hour episode at a time, and he does so with excitement and wonder. Curiosity isn't killing this cat anytime soon, so check out "Getting Curious" on maximunfun.org.
