Last week Jesse Thorn, the leading voice of MaxFun, kicked off their big annual fundraiser the 2010 MaxFunDrive. It’s two weeks of gentle pleadings for support, a steadily rising fundm-ometer, podcasts funny as per usual, and it culminates in an 8-hour marathon comedy show / podcast at a Meltdown Comics in L.A.. A donation page is standing by.
MaxFun podcast products include The Sound of Young America (which is also heard on public radio stations across the country), Jordan, Jesse, Go!, Stop Podcasting Yourself, the Kasper Hauser Podcast, and several others. They are all available on iTunes. These are what you’ support by donating.
Here’s a sample of Jesse & TSOYA in action, interviewing metallic legend Ian Fraser Leman Kilmister (aka Lemmy) at SXSW this year.
