The world wide web hasn’t had a series aiming to help men dress like grown-ups. That is, until tomorrow, when Jesse Thorn and Adam Lisagor premier Put This On in Pasadena. The new web series hits their website on Monday.

Typically when seen together, it’s been as the Monsters of Podcasting -- the Voltronesque live effort featuring both of their significantly downloaded podcasts. Lisagor’s You Look Nice Today is “a brilliant and highly acclaimed comedy podcast,” said Thorn.

Thorn’s hilarious Jordan, Jesse, Go! is as well, though it’s his second most popular effort.

“For the last three years or so, it’s been distributed nationally by Public Radio International and airs on a lot of public radio stations around the country,” said Thorn of The Sound of Young America, a show he both produces and hosts.

“Though none here in Los Angeles.”

LAist recently had the chance to talk with these Monsters about dressing up nerds, style inspirations, and what might ensue if one of them wins a Razzie. (Unfortunately not much was uncovered about Thorn’s favorite IMDB credit of Lisagor’s: PredatorCam Operator: “Alien Vs. Predator Requiem.”)
