Ep. 105: Jeff Hiller & Krystina Arielle

Go Fact Yourself returns to a live audience! Join us on Saturday June 18th at KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena. Tickets are free!

It’s a wickedly good morphin’ time on a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Jeff Hiller is an actor and comedian who’s latest work is on HBO’s “Somebody Somewhere.” He considers the role a special one; in addition to his character sharing a lot of his interests and personality traits, it’s the first time that he’s gotten to portray a person who’s likable! Plus we’ll learn more about his work with Shakespeare in the Park… and his cat’s instagram page.

Krystina Arielle made a name for herself by cosplaying as some of her favorite franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek. She knew eventually that her fandom would lead her to working in these universes as a professional– which she does now! You can hear her latest webseries about the Star Wars: The High Republic book series on StarWars.com.

Our guests will answer trivia about teenage superheroes and misunderstood villains.
