Welcome to the podcast, b****! It’s a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Griffin and Rachel McElroy are the married duo behind the MaxFun podcast “Wonderful!” where they showcase things that bring them joy. That sort of positivity is hard to maintain when the news cycle gets serious. But they try to always find room to talk about what makes Cheetos so great.

Griffin is one third of The McElroy Brothers. Together they have made such popular podcasts as “My Brother, My Brother and Me,” and “The Adventure Zone.” Their latest in a series of graphic novels based on “The Adventure Zone” is entitled The Eleventh Hour and is available now.

When she’s not podcasting, Rachel works in the grant writing business. She’ll tell us about why so many companies and people who apply for grants know they need money… even if they don’t understand what they need it for.

Our guests will compete to answer trivia about TV shows featuring teenagers and time travel.
