"Daily Show" writer Travon Free teaches us how to talk to famous people at parties, how to switch from Division-1 basketball to comedy, how to stand in for a Spider-Man villain, how to write a killer late night packet, how to get along with Marilyn Manson, and how to take the perfect selfie. Plus, we play a game of InstaCaption, where Travon tells us what caption he'd write for Instagram photos of himself with various celebrities. What happens when Travon, Donald Trump, and Bill O'Reilly walk into a room? Probably the start of a bad joke.

Kinda Funny host and former IGN writer Greg Miller teaches us how to start an online business, how to have the ultimate Taylor Swift concert experience, how to make a career out of loving video games, how to use Patreon, how to grow a loyal fan base on YouTube, how to tear up your life and move across the country for a new job, and how to tear up that life to start a website of your own. Then Greg tells us the perfect snack food to pair with various dishes. What should you eat for dessert after feasting on human flesh and horse meatballs? Greg will tell you.

Colbert writer Gabe Gronli teaches us how to turn your bed into a movie theater, how to host a Wisconsin cable access show in high school, how to faint in front of your friends, how to be the Forrest Gump of comedy, how to watch mind-numbing amounts of cable news, and how to get a prostate exam on TV. Plus we play a few rounds of Movie Pong aka The Movie Game aka that thing where you name movies and actors in them, you know what we mean. We get real deep into the filmography of Chris Pine (aka Crisp Lines). Bonus: Lots of Dweck childhood stories, including one where she wakes up in a pile of chocolate.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and Marvel Comics writer Jeff Loveness teaches us how to travel the world alone, how to make viral videos about Spider-Man and Wes Anderson, how to express Groot’s many emotions, how to look like Slender Man, how to accidentally crash a monk’s funeral, how to write really dark Onion headlines, and how to make friends at a hostel. Then we play a game of "Zoinks!" where we think of comic book sound effects for mundane everyday activities. Krumpff, it's a fun game!
