Great cases - great puns. Love it each week. Minus one star because the docket clearing episodes aren't as fun.
Judge John Hodgman is truly my favorite podcast in all time. Jesse and John's humor is nuanced and witty and it never gets old. I would recommend this to anyone of any age. Give it a few episodes. It's incredible.
The litigants on the show are carefully chosen to both be entertaining to listen to as well as be different in an unexpected way. Both the judge and the bailiff are very funny and the production value is incredible. Kid friendly show. Highly recommend.
This podcast is funny and surprisingly warm and intuitive.
I love this podcast. Smart humor about sometimes dumb things (like 'is a hotdog a sandwich?') and other times unusually smart things. Interesting, thoughtful perspectives on culture.
It keeps me laughing while going through my day.
John and Jesse are hilarious, and I love this shows concept!
I look forward to this every week and have found myself recommending it to friends several times. I really appreciate that it is clean (no bad language or content). So funny and so well done!
I try to live my life in accordance with the laws of Judge John Hodgman. I love this podcast. This would be my one desert island podcast.
It breaks my heart to leave this show, but Jesse's smugness has become too much for me. He seems to need to interject often to make a joke that only he'll think is funny, then repeat it multiple times. Maybe I'll check in when Summertime Funtime Bailiff Monty Bellmonte guests, but I'm done with Jesse. Sorry, John!
Sad but true fact: JJH was written into my husband's vows. Still waiting on a live episode in LA! *cough cough*
but for nerds.
It is simply the best, most consistent audio program around.
This show makes me laugh a lot and has a great vibe. Much needed these days. Thanks JJHO and Jesse Thorn! I think I've listened to almost every episode. ð
Warm, funny, nerdy, low stakes. My millenial heart is full.
John Hodgeman is brilliant. Not a huge fan of the podcast. But this man should be supported in everything he does. If he starts baking muffins tommorow I have no doubt they'll be great, even if not my favorite flavor.
Judge John Hodgman is my companion in many situations. Can't imagine a life not listening to this podcast.
Great advice on how to mediate interpersonal relationships mixed with humor and common sense.
Judge Hodgman and sidekick Jesse always deliver some good weird dad advice and sometimes a shut your pie hole. Whatâs not to love?
Never disappointing and very well done. Highly recommend!!
It's the best one
I find this podcast hilarious. I remember cry-laughing at the Canadian House of Pizza and Garbage. The Judge is fair and usually has wisdom that I would not have considered. Add in Shut Your Pie Hole Jesse Thorn and you have yourself an entertaining hour!
why can't real court be like this?
Really enjoying this podcast.
It's Jesse Thorn and John Hodgeman. Do I really need to write it out that it's awesome!?
Very enjoyable. Judge John and Jesse are a fabulous duo. Their cases are well chosen and entertaining. And the decisions are often very insightful and thoughtful, to a point beyond being merely lighthearted banter. I highly recommend this podcast.
The source of all human wisdom
This show is so much fun and I listen to it all the time when I'm out walking my dogs. Super entertaining. I learn more how to be a better human being.
Just listen to the judge. He knows whats what.
The judge can always see through your BS so you better bring your A game if you are gonna go to court! Lovin me some justice smackdown and sometimes they are actually funny. RI = greatest NE state by volume...
Listening to this, you might think you're just listening to a great comedy podcast with excellent nerd culture references and witty, sarcastic banter. But then - bam! - the judge hits you with some warm feelings inside as he makes his verdict. His insightful decisions often encompass more than just the issue between the two litigants. He is able to find something deeper in their relationship and help them work on real issues.
I don't miss an episode. Judge John Hodgeman has great taste. The biggest surprise I had from first listening is how thoughtful and fair his judgements and closing remarks are. Jesse Thorn, if you're not familiar, is a solidly good dude. Bullseye is a great show as well. It's really cool to hear him blow a hip hop artists mind with his deep deep knowledge of hip hop history. They are both great examples of being an adult in our infantilized culture.
I only just recently discovered this podcast but it has quickly become my favorite. Every episode I've listened to has made me laugh and I've already started telling everyone in my office around me about.
As someone who has spent his entire life in the State of Maine, but for a six-year foray into the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I cannot imagine a better commentary on society than this documentary on New England life and pedantry masquerading as a comedy legal podcast.
Period.Update 3/31/2017: Still the best! Period.
Hilarious, witty, clean (ish) fun, sweet... what else can I say? I love this podcast. It is a nightly ritual for me. It helps me to laugh as I fall asleep every night, even through deep anxiety. It's amazing fun, you must listen.
Consistently one of my favorite podcasts and podcasters. Great combination of smart and funny.
I enjoy listening to the Judge when I want wit and insight. Unlike Fox News, Judge Hodgman is genuinely fair and balanced.
Hilarious podcast that always makes me smile. I love the docket clearing episodes because that's when JJH and Jesse Thorne's humor and chemistry really come to the fore.
Love this hilarious take on the people's court. Real people, real problems, fake judge ð
I look forward to Thursday's - that's when I listen to this podcast. Very entertaining. Highly recommend if you're looking for some fun.
Charming, whitty, delightful, and laugh out loud funny. Coudln't recommend higher.
Judge John Hodgman hears the stupidest disputes and treats them with the utmost seriousness: Comedy gold.
Bailiff Jesse Thorn and Judge Hodgman kill it every single episode. They are the best and I hope they know it.
I was really late to the game on this one - I just started listening to it about two months ago. But since I heard about this podcast (thanks to another podcasts' recommendation), I've been listening to it pretty much nonstop. Judge Hodgman and Bailiff Jesse (and other guest bailiffs, including good-time summertime Bailiff Monte, whose pun game is on point, which generates a great deal of ire from the Judge) somehow manage to make each case delightfully fun, while taking seriously the root of the issues. And Jesse's laugh is just the greatest. Also, fun facts abound in this podcast. Like, did you know that ending a sentence with a preposition is totally okay? And a split infinitive - also okay. I don't remember in what episode they dropped these bombs, but I promise if you listen to the whole back catalog, you'll find it! Enjoy!
And it makes washing dishes fun.
