Comedy podcast to tape on (where else?) the USS Iowa

"Jordan, Jesse, Go!," a podcast by Fuel TV performer Jordan Morris and NPR host Jesse Thorn, will record live next Saturday at the battleship USS Iowa on the waterfront in San Pedro. It's a fundraiser with proceeds going to support the veterans' group Swords To Plowshares. "Because nothing says comedy podcast like a floating hunk of metallic destruction," says the flackage.

Fact: Artillery launched from the USS Iowa's main guns can hit a target at up to 26 miles. So from its port in San Pedro, it can hit downtown Los Angeles! (For you non-Angelenos, that's like an hour and half with traffic.)
