Ep. 128: Lisa Loeb & Reggie Watts

Time to spread the love of sci-fi on a brand new episode of  Go Frak Fact Yourself!

Jason Kravits is an actor, singer and improviser who last appeared on episode 7 of Go Fact Yourself. This week, he saves the day, filling in as co-host in place of Helen Hong.

Lisa Loeb is a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who writes and performs music for both children and grown-ups. She often has concerts catering to both of her target audiences on the same day, but she’ll tell us how her music for kids is often the most popular song for adults! Plus: how her fandom of the character Hello Kitty led to some great opportunities. You can hear Lisa every day on her Sirius XM radio show, “Stay With Lisa Loeb.”

Reggie Watts is a comedian, actor and musician. He just wrapped up an eight-year stint as the band leader on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” It’s a job that he really enjoyed, but he’ll explain why he made a point to stop coming to rehearsals. Reggie will also tell us about being a contestant on “Jeopardy!” and why he was more familiar with a famous parody version of the show prior to his appearance on the real thing. Reggie’s book, Great Falls: MT: Fast Times, Post-Punk Weirdos, and a Tale of Coming Home Again, is available for preorder now.
