Ep. 69: Jim O’Heir & Dulcé Sloan

Do you hear the people sing? It’s another edition of Go Fact Yourself!

Jim O’Heir is best known for his role as Jerry/Larry/Terry/Garry on NBC’s beloved comedy “Parks & Recreation.” But despite the show’s monstrous fanbase, he says that he still hears people confuse it with another beloved NBC comedy. You can probably guess which one. He’ll tell us all about his career and why he was so shocked when he won his first Emmy award.

Dulcé Sloan is a frequent correspondent on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.” What’s one of her most memorable things about working on the show? It’s gotta be the costumes — she’s dressed up as everything from a Christmas Tree to God with an afro. Plus, she’ll tell us about how she feels right at home with Korean culture, from the history to the TV to the food.

Guests answer questions about (and shed some tears for) deep space voyages, international plays and the perfect Korean meal spread.
