Last year, Stephen Colbert started a Kiva team to raise money for small businesses in the developing world. Since then, he's racked up just under $10,000 in loans. Now, Josh and Chuck of the popular "How Stuff Works" podcast, "Stuff You Should Know" has challenged Colbert to a money-lending smackdown. The podcast's Kiva team is quickly outpacing Colbert's team with $24,000 in a little over a month and they've created a YouTube video to rile up the Comedy Central host.

Check out their public challenge to Stephen Colbert to raise $100,000 for Kiva:
