The 1st factor you want to know about the FXX animated collection Dicktown is that it can be brimming with nonsense and ridiculousness.

In each individual episode, Hunchman and his previous higher faculty archnemesis turned good friend David Purefoy, played by comic and cartoonist David Rees, address a secret in their hometown of Richardsville, North Carolina, which is nicknamed Dicktown.


Along with David Rees, John Hodgman produced and stars in the FXX animated series Dicktown.


The subsequent detail you have to have to know about Dicktown is that the mysteries are as foolish as they are satisfying. Each episode’s title, like The Secret of the Lacking Pimento Cheese Recipe or The Secret of the Marauding Mascot, demonstrates the alternatively uncomplicated endeavor the two detectives should unravel.

We received to operate with all of our friends, and they’re also outstanding.”

Pay attention to my full interview with Hodgman in the podcast player at the leading of this write-up. He talks not only about Dicktown but also his everyday living as a podcast faux judge, what his previous Each day Display character the Deranged Millionaire would be up to and how a lesson he realized from the boom mic operator on Apple’s Mac and Pc Television advertisements applies to Wordle.

“To me, it [Wordle] comes down to the insight that was afforded to me by the boom microphone operator on the established of the Apple adverts. Just one working day I was whistling amongst will take.
