The dynamic father-daughter duo Fred and Jo Firestone join Frances Mayo to discuss the Punderdome 3000, a wordplay tournament that is the talk (or pun) of the town. At the Punderdome, people change their identities. They eat entire cakes in 90 seconds. There are matching Hawaiian shirts, Human Clap-o-Meters, Rodney Dangerfield impersonations, and PayDay candy bars flying through the room. The interview is interspersed with live recordings from the Punderdome. The Punderdome is hosted monthly at Littlefield in Brooklyn. For more information, please visit
