Ep. 119: Michael Doughty & Ting Lim

You’re on deep background for a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Mike Doughty is a singer-songwriter who’s written music as a solo artist and with the band “Ghost of Vroom.” He finds it easier to start songs than to finish them; so as an incentive to do better, he promised one new song a week for fans who support him on Patreon. He’ll tell us about that and why he would like exactly $35 for his work (sort of) appearing on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

Ting Lim is a Singaporean comedian based in Brisbane, Australia. She’s fallen in love with the area because of the landscape and the generosity of her Australian audiences. The kindness that she’s found in her new home is a far cry from her experience in Singapore; she’ll tell us about how she got in trouble with the justice system for the crime of littering.

Our guests will answer trivia about freedom of the press and freedom of the whales.
