...and very funny. I love this podcast!
Roughly 300 episodes since John and Jesse debated the taxonomy of Chili.Still worth listening to.
Order! This court is now in session. Indulge your mastery of obscure cultural references. Take the cowards' way out, guess second. Listen, as your Dad calls a self-appointed Fake Internet court host, your honor. Amuse yourself with bickering couples whose flimsy disputes turn into learning self-awareness and kindness. Be glad you don't have roommates like some of the human monsters these plaintiffs have to put up with. Watch the best deflectors give ridiculous excuses for their misbehavior. The Settled Law of the court are words to live by. "Be considerate of the work you leave for others."By the power vested in me by my Apple ID, I declare today Judge John Hodgman Day on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts. This ruling is binding. Judge John Hodgman rules. That is all.
I love episodes that really get to the heart of something important. John always has good advice and is funny as well.
Nothing like silly internet justice to make my morning once a week
Listening to the proceedings in the faux-judge's court is one of the highlights of my week. Judge Hodgman adjudicates his listeners' disputes and in the process showcases his wit, wisdom, cultural literacy, and love for people. The decisions are poignant yet still funny, and often actually help the disputants resolve their issue. Bailiff Jesse Thorn and the stable of guest-bailiffs provide interesting and alternative views. It's a winner!
Judge John keeps me laughing all day at work with his humor and wit! Thanks for the laughs Judge!
And a hot dog is not a dandwixh
I love John Hodgman. I wanted to go deep into how thoughtful and considerate he is toward his "rulings." I wanted to speak in depth toward how I can recommend this podcast to anyone and walk away knowing that I just enriched their life. I don't have the words. I'll say that every episode is x-mas for me. The absolute best!
Pun averse judge and ubiquitous podcasting bailiff dispense with the jokes and wisdom.
My favorite podcast (and my subscription list is long). Witty, erudite, civil, life affirming; nothing else like it as a salve for troubled times. Only programming (TV or audio) that I truly actively look forward to on a weekly basis.
Humor, justice, common sense and sincerity. This podcast has it all! I look forward to this every week!
I look forward to this podcast every week and have been listening for about five years now. It's nice to hear about other people's petty problems. It's also fun to hear the judge and bailiff make thoughtful jokes and analyses about those problems.
Top 5 podcast of all time!
By people who want to say weird, pretentious things. I don't know what that has to do with this podcast, but the podcast is entertaining and fun as it is meant to be.
Best podcast out there
I love this podcast; I listen to it every week. Thanks, JJHo!
This is such a funny, entertaining podcast. I love it so much!
The road to wisdom?âWell, it's plainand simple to express: Err and err and err again, but less and less and less. â Piet Hein
You have to appreciate the deep intelligence and clever humor underlying adjudication of quotidian conflicts. Always entertaining
Saying something, since I listen to a few dozen regularly.
I have been listening to this podcast from the very beginning. I like how it kept evolving, especially with the obscure cultural reference. The cases are always interesting, and bring me a laugh. Will continue to listen until this podcast ends.
I can't imagine a week without listening in on justice being dispemsed by the funniest judge in America. Watch out for the obscure cultural reference
Cool beans in hot sauce
I even saw a live show!
Love this podcast!
I've been listening for three or four years now, and I'm currently working through my third listen-through of the entire show. The show picks great guests with interesting personalities and conflicts, and Hodgman is warm and empathetic in both giving them a platform, drawing them out, and offering (truly!) sage and wise counsel.
I realized the other day that I've been listening to this podcast for six years, and looking forward to it every time a new one comes out. Really hilarious. I've shared it with many people, and the only one who didn't like it was my mom. Go figure. Thanks Maximum Fun!!
I love this podcast. It was the first podcast I ever listened to. Then reading glasses, then sawbones... et cetera. I think that personally, it's very interesting to hear other people's problems, their outputs on it, and judge john Hodgeman's output. (And Jesse Thorn, never forget Jesse Thorn!) They have great live shows and substitute bailiffs.
Its a good time
For someone with a strong sense of fairness, I love listening to how John comes to his case decisions. Varied topics, great cultural references, enjoyable bailiff and judge banter.
There's a judge and judging and judging of the judge's judgment. Fun!
So funny and informative too! Keep up the good work
I especially love the Docket Rounding up episodes for quick indulgence
This is pretty much one of the funniest, sweetest, and kindest podasts that exist. Thsi was my gateway podcast and now I listen to like 10 from max fun! JJHo is super intelligent, and just suh a nice dude. Highly recomend!
This show cracks me up. Thank you, John Hodgeman!
I always look forward to each week's episode of JJHO. It's such a ridiculous concept to have a judge adjudicate simple disputes, but sometimes, we need an impartial eye! Who better to give that than the delightfully quirky Jon Hodgeman.
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.
