Comedian and "Late Late Show with James Corden” writer Jared Logan teaches us how to be a (non-sexual) dungeon master, how to sing sad songs about coal mining in West Virginia, how to get creative inspiration from doing nothing, how Dungeons & Dragons is like Scientology, and why Donald Trump is a chaotic evil invoker. This episode is nerd nirvana (nerdvana?).

"Walking Dead," "Star Wars: Rogue One," and "Book of Eli" writer Gary Whitta teaches us how to write a screenplay, how to drop out of school at 15 to write video game reviews, how to move to America, how to break into the film industry by accident, how to break screenplay-writing rules, and most importantly, he teaches us what NOT to say to Will Smith. Plus, we play a game of "Robot, Zombie, Jedi." Spoiler alert: Being a zombie sucks.

New Yorker and "Late Night" writer Cirocco Dunlap teaches us how to communicate, how NOT to communicate, how to survive hippie LSD-dropping parents in San Francisco, how to vomit-hallucinate your demons on Ayahuasca, how to write a children's book, and how to pick the best position in a human centipede. Then we play a game of "Alphabet," where we try to have a conversation using every letter of the alphabet in order. Plus, we finally find out all of Jess' fears!

"Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update writer Josh Patten teaches us how college football works, how to live in Brazil and say “Titanic” in Portuguese, how to write jokes about dead people, and how Dungeons and Dragons is like improv. Then we play “Post It!” where we come up with New York Post-style punny headlines about historical events.
