    International Waters: Intercontinental Pop Culture Comedy Quiz Podcast



    Just wanted to announce to my AST pals the launch of a new, hopefully monthly (with your support) show from MaximumFun.org: International Waters.

    International Waters is a pop-cultural comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply. Join me (Jesse Thorn) in the lawless waters off the coast of wherever, as a team of comedians from the United States battles one from the United Kingdom for WORLD SUPREMACY.

    Our pilot episode features Paul Scheer and Janet Varney representing the US of A in a skirmish with Tom Parry and Josie Long in London, England. Plus an interview with director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), who was also kind enough to host a bonus round.

    Listen to the show on the web, or subscribe to the show in iTunes now.

    If you use a non-iTunes podcatcher, use this feed: http://www.maximumfun.org/feeds/iw.xml.

    For the time being, we're planning on making International Waters a once-a-month event, with the next episode coming during the MaxFunDrive. Our hope is that the drive will generate the capital we need to keep the show running, so if you like our first episode and want to hear more, give generously and tell us you want more IW.

    I'd never heard of Humphrey Ker or Margaret Cabourn-Smith before, but they were awesome contestants. Andy Daly was as expected (brilliantly funny) but for my money Erin Gibson was the best one. John Crace's parodies had me giggling like a ninny. The show is fantastic and keeps getting better. Keep it up, International Waters.

    The latest episode was the first I've listened too, and I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to hear more.

    Yall are fuckin up if you don't listen to this. Rob Huebel and Sarah Thyre are hilariously unruly contestants. And it's always amazing that these Brits I've never heard of can go toe to toe with comedians I know and love.
