Ep. 88: John Fugelsang & Thao Nguyen

We’re getting the band back together and playing the hits on a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Kitty Felde fills in for Helen Hong as our special guest host for this week! She was previously a guest on episode 51.

John Fugelsang can be heard every weekday on SiriusXM radio as the host of the show “Tell me Everything with John Fugelsang.” He’s interviewed tons of guests from different industries for years. So what’s the secret to having great conversations with people? It all comes down to practice — and learning how to find someone’s geek zone.

Thao Nguyen is a songwriter, whose newest album “Temple” is out now. It was actually inspired by something that was truly special to her: her first trip to Vietnam with her mom. She’ll tell us about why the journey was so meaningful — plus, how her onstage performance helps with her road rage issues.

Our guests will answer trivia questions about sobs, jobs, and Bobs!
