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”? Areas of Expertise: Jim O’Heir: The 2020 U.S. election, The musical _Les Miserable, _The TV show “Mama’s Family.” Dulcé Sloan: The TV show “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” the TV show “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and historical Korean dramas.

Awesomeology (GRATITUDE FOR LITTLE THINGS) with Neil Pasricha
Gratitude: what’s the deal? Does it really make us happier? Even when the world seems terrible? Or is being appreciative a bunch of hokey flim-flam? Author Neil Pasricha started a blog of 1000 Awesome Things in 2008 and it led him down rabbit holes looking into the science of gratitude and how to better survive some really tough times. Learn about your new morning ritual, how much of happiness is genetically determined, why you should sniff a tree, honeymoon drama, simple appreciation, singing while making dinner, the gambles you take while scrolling, and how your brain means well -- but can make you miserable on purpose. Also, buy one more cactus.  Follow Neil Pasricha at Twitter.com/NeilPasricha and Instagram.com/NeilPasricha Neil’s website: Neil.blog 3 Books Podcast: https://www.3books.co/ A donation went to https://performancespacenewyork.org/ Sponsors of Ologies: alieward.com/ologies-sponsors More links and info at alieward.com/ologies/awesomeology Transcripts & bleeped episodes at: alieward.com/ologies-extras Become a patron of Ologies for as little as a buck a month: www.Patreon.com/ologies OlogiesMerch.com has hats, shirts, pins, totes and now… MASKS.
