Actress Gillian Jacobs joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of websites that make them nervous, the vaping congressman, modern t-shirt canons, and male pregnancy art on the internet.
Heads up! There are some discussions about miscarriage in this episode, so please be forewarned if that's a trigger for you. Or, maybe NAPTIME is a worse trigger?! We wouldn't blame you if that's the case. Naps or the lack thereof can be a real son-of-a-somethin' and despite a cumulative four kids and nearly twelve years of parenting between us, Biz and Theresa don't necessarily have the answer to the question, "How do I get my kid to take a nap?" Luckily, we get a visit from Julia Aziz. Her book, Lessons of Labor: One Woman's Self-Discovery Through Birth and Motherhood, is a wonderful reminder that we don't have to have all the answers all the time.

It's going down. Our heroes have a thrilling showdown with three of their most deadly, most dead foes -- but will they fare as well in Round Two as they did the first time around? Taako defies gravity. Magnus adds to his collection. Merle learns the basics of the Cleric class.
Yee-haw y'all! This week, Erin and Bryan really stick it to the South and not in the genital way. Erin discusses Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas who strongly and ridiculously opposed a bill for women scientists. Then Bryan looks at the tent revival discrimination in the Bible belt as bigoted laws pass in Mississippi and North Carolina. It's been a week, y'all.

Thao Nguyen began her career as a singer-songwriter in her teens, while making change for customers at her mother’s laundromat. Her musical influences include country, folk and hip-hop, but her music is uniquely her own.
Her latest album as the frontwoman of the band Thao and the Get Down Stay Down is called A Man Alive, and takes its inspiration from Thao's complicated relationship with her father. Their estrangement began when Thao was a teenager and has continued into her adulthood. Her feelings of affection and resentment results in a musical experience that is both raw and intimate.
Thao Nguyen sat down with Jesse to talk about the importance of her collaboration with producer Merrill Garbus in the making of the album, the diversity of her early musical influences and the struggle to fit in while growing up as a Vietnamese-American.
Thao and the Get Down Stay Down's new album, A Man Alive is available now. The band is currently on a cross country tour; you can find those tourdates here.
Lance Bangs is the kind of filmmaker who would prefer jumping into the backseat of a car with a camera than being responsible for a huge budget and massive crew. His intimate approach to filmmaking has been appreciated and sought after not only for films and television, but also numerous music videos for performers including Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Green Day, Arcade Fire, REM and Kanye West.
He was even brought on to help film the intimate relationships within the MTV reality show Jackass, which focused on its talent performing incredibly dangerous and crude pranks and stunts.
Lance Bangs’ latest television show is the new Viceland series Flophouse. The show profiles the lives of up-and-coming stand-up comics and the sometimes questionable living conditions they live under while trying to make career for themselves in comedy.
Lance Bangs joined Jesse to talk about his why he prefers his intimate approach to filmmaking, his memories of working on Jackass and why he is attracted to the world of comedy.
Jesse talks about the emotional depth to be found in Black Sabbath’s 1970 album, Paranoid.
Comedian Clare Belford joins us to talk about dates, coyotes, and spooky Russian stuff.
