Ep. 99: Kevin Allison & Parker Molloy

Vote YES for a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Kevin Allison is best known as creator and host of the podcast “RISK!” The show is all about encouraging people to tell stories that they never thought they’d share in public. He’ll tell us why people want to share some of their biggest secrets – and how more than one person’s secret involves cannibalism.

Parker Molloy is a writer, whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Daily Beast and more. But she’s also been described as “Everyone’s first Twitter follow.” She’ll tell us where that moniker came from and explain why she has so much love for her life in Chicago.

Our guests will answer questions about princes, new girls and boxers.
