    [Contains explicit content] The Great Northwest isn't just Seattle and Portland. It ranges from the misty, artistic nerd havens of the coast to the deserts, forests, and cowboy country of Idaho and Montana to the vast expanse of Alaska. Jackie Kashian guides us on a sound collage of the Great Northwest that tackles this strange collection of independent spirits and incredible landscapes, but...in a funny way, people.

    In Planet Funny, Ken Jennings explores this brave new comedic world and what it means - or doesn’t - to be funny in it now. Tracing the evolution of humor from the caveman days to the bawdy middle-class antics of Chaucer to Monty Python’s game-changing silliness to the fast-paced meta-humor of The Simpsons, Jennings explains how we built our humor-saturated modern age, where lots of us get our news from comedy shows and a comic figure can even be elected president of the United States purely on showmanship.
