Ep. 71: 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) intergalactic voyages, international plays and the perfect Korean meal spread. What’s the difference: Trust but Verify What’s the difference between “distrust” and “mistrust”? What’s the difference between “verify” and “confirm”?

The Michael Jackson—R. Kelly Episode
Disclaimer: This episode contains a frank discussion about the careers of Michael Jackson and Robert Kelly. While we do make mention of allegations of sexual assault and abuse, that is not the crux of this episode. However, if that’s something you’d rather not listen to, we get it. Feel free to skip this episode and revisit your favorite from our catalog here. This week, Jarrett Hill and Tre'vell Anderson finally tackle a topic the #FANTIfam has been requesting for months: How do we engage (and should we engage?) with the music catalogues of Michael Jackson and R. Kelly. Unless you've truly been living under a rock we don't need to catch you up to speed on the careers of either. We are also going to assume you don't need a refresher on any of the allegations that surround the legacies of either artist. Is it okay to listen to the music R. Kelly wrote for other artists while removing his entire discography from the Spotify playlist? Should we refrain from moonwalking at events? Where does one draw the line when people who have been accused of the unforgivable leave behind such a rich musical imprint? But first… Have you heard the good news?
