"Don't Piss Off Your Boss" with Vinny Lacey

11/12/2019
More
The workplace can be very enigmatic; put aside your job description, how are you supposed to act? WHAT are the RULES?! Usually, the best method for success at work is to just "be professional"...but in this episode with writer/comedian Vinny Lacey, we learn the hard way that being "professional" is easier said than done. That being said, two of us got fired and one of us didn't. And frankly, the one who didn't get fired deserved it WAY more than the other two. Guest: Writer/Comedian Vinny...

"Don't Be a Dummy" Vol. 1 (Hard Way Rapid-Fire Edition)

11/5/2019
More
When a scheduling snafu causes you to not have a guest but it’s too late to reschedule the studio, you gotta improvise! In this episode, we share a bunch of mini-stories of our very specific brand of stupidity. Between the accidental fish murder, ingesting too many psychedelics, or sh*tting when we do NOT want to be sh*tting --- you'd better buckle up, buttercups, cuz we're taking you for a ride on the Dummy Train.

"Don't Go to the Hardware Store for Milk" with Hank Chen

10/29/2019
More
Ya know how sometimes you're like “I need this thing in my life” but then there’s a person or situation you always seek out that absolutely is NOT the right choice to satiate that need? Well, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU. In this episode we discuss looking in the wrong places for things we want out of life; Hank opens up about abusive relationships and finding guidance through Al-Anon, Nick shares his food addiction and a recent, dauntingly annoying food-related diagnosis, and Jess needs to...

"Don't Live Beyond Your Means" with Julian M. Stern

10/22/2019
More
Anyone else feel like it's hard to walk 6 feet without spending $3,000? Forget about having anything bad happen while you're trying to budget especially when living in an expensive city like Los Angeles. Seriously how are we all not on the streets yet? In this episode, we sit down with writer/comedian Julian M. Stern who's just as bad with money as Jess is, and Nick lords over us with his damn good budgeting skills thanks to his mama Debbie. This may be the only time we ever say this, but we...

"Don't F*ck Up at a Wedding" with Robyn Lee

10/15/2019
More
Weddings are meant to be beautiful displays of love (right??), but sometimes you invite someone who ruins your special day in one way or another. In this episode, Robyn makes some dicey decisions on wedding day and then proceeds to ruin a honeymoon, Jess's inside-joke-driven speech makes her look a bit like a jilted lesbian lover, and Nick "Gimme Another Whiskey" Kaminsky mostly likely did WAY more dumb things than he thought (if only could remember). Pretty unlikely that any of us will be...

"Don't Disrespect Your Parents" with Gary Leli

10/8/2019
More
Who else was a little sh*t growing up and talked back to their parents who were only doing their best to raise the demon child they spawned? In this episode, Gary "Wise Guy" Leli teaches us about Italian/NY stereotypes and how he learned not to play with his parents' things, Nick heavily disappoints his mother (all she wanted to do was buy you pants at Kohl's, Nick!), and Jess causes a decade of damage with a new family member by giving a horrible first impression. Guest: Stand up comic...

"Don't Settle" with Erin Alexis

10/1/2019
More
In this episode we learn that when it seems like there's something better out there than what you're dealing with, there probably is. So don't take the first answer you get when you know it's wrong, and definitely don't settle for less than what you know you deserve, or you'll end up depressed, covered in roaches and drinking a lotta Four Loko.

"Don't S**t Where You Eat" with Bianca Cristovao

9/24/2019
More
If you want to be comfortable in your home, at school, or in your job, we all know you're not supposed to stink it up in there (which for some reason usually translates to hooking up with someone we shouldn't). Normally, if you do it anyway, it's just awkward, but Bianca ended up in the danger zone.

"Don't Ignore Your Instincts" with Shelby Schwieterman

9/3/2019

Sometimes you have to learn about alcoholism, cheating and rabies the hard way; and it's safe to say that in this episode we all ignored WAY too many red flags.

"Don't Lose Your Cool" with Landon Hughes

9/3/2019
More
In episode 1 we learn the hard way that sometimes our reactions are not...appropriate. We've got angry bus culture, a hangry veteran and some reasons why you shouldn't make jokes in jail. Oops!
