Ep. 76: Cady Huffman & Jonah Ray

Check in with your doctor and take a seat in the makeup chair, it’s a new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Cady Huffman has been seen in TV shows like “The Good Wife” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” She’s also a Broadway star, perhaps best known as her role in the original cast of The Producers — for which she won a Tony! She’ll tell us about how being up for a prestigious award doesn’t mean that you can take the day off from performing on-stage. You can see Cady on the webseries “Cady Did.”

Jonah Ray is a comedian and actor who hosted the revival of the series “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” He’ll tell us about what it was like to see the famous spoof comedy show tackle movies that he grew up with. We’ll also learn more about what could be his crowning achievement: Being friends with Weird Al. Jonah is the host of the podcast Jonah Raydio.

Our guests will answer questions about hot flashes, cold-hard facts and the best places to keep your major awards.
