The Paunch Stevenson Show episode 250

In celebration of our 250th episode, we decided to travel halfway across the world to Africa! There we caught up with our favorite actress Eliza Dushku, and her family, sort of a Dushku family vacation. They began a charitable foundation Thrive Gulu which has setup in Uganda in order to help women recover from a brutal two decade war. Women were left widowed, children orphaned, as a result of the conflict. Uganda was a wonderful country, full of so many friendly, optimistic, and caring people, as well as great food, and natural beauty.

Thanks to friend of the show and YouTube sensation Mike Massé for his amazing cover of “Africa” by Toto. Follow Mike on Twitter @mikemasse and of course his YouTube Channel!

Hey look, we’re in full motion video, cover your eyes! Thank you Eliza, Nate and Judy for coming on the show.
