Ep. 55: Jimmy Pardo

It’s a special, experimental Quarantine Edition of Go Fact Yourself recorded at our various homes and with no live audience!

Jimmy Pardo is a comedian and host of the long-running podcast “Never Not Funny.” He also owns the distinction of being a guest on the very first episode of Go Fact Yourself

When he was first on the show, he answered trivia questions about 1980’s music. But this time we’re revisiting BOTH of his other areas of expertise to determine if he is truly the Facting Champion!

Along the way, Jimmy will discuss how he’s podcasting from home, music from his hometown and favorite baseball hometeam.
