The Truth Behind Magic Johnson's Twitter Account (and Other Crucial Internet Mysteries)
EPISODE 35: This (still) isn't a mailbag.
Enormous thanks to the startlingly large number of people who persist in leaving us voicemails at our Journalism Hotline: 513-85-PABLO.
Even if your inquiry does not appear in today’s episode of PTFO, please know: this doesn’t mean that it won’t appear in a future show. (Our detective agency is still trying to solve multiple mysteries you guys inspired.)
But either way! I love hearing from you. And we love doing this non-mailbag, every several weeks, because our curiosities have been ignited by questions like:
What was the aftermath of David Samson being unable to smell or taste the hottest Hot Ones sauces in the world?
What exactly is an Oklahoma “Sooner” (and is it racist)?
Why did the biggest newsbreaker in the NBA block you?
Who actually writes Magic Johnson’s Twitter account?
Who is the best chess player in the Wu-Tang Clan?
How can the human race evolve beyond Victor Wembanyama?
Can you please find Maury’s Cotton-Ball Man?
Oh, also: when we mention that producer Ryan Cortes only discovered rock music over the pandemic — that’s not a joke. Before 2020, he knew who Pitbull was but not Pearl Jam. And now he can’t stop walking around the office listening to, like, Soundgarden and Nirvana. It’s adorably insane.
