"Key & Peele" and "Rick and Morty" writer Alex Rubens teaches us how to be more optimistic, how to quit Facebook, how to write Pac-Man and Star Wars fan fic, how to work for the genius Dan Harmon, how to grow up in Manhattan like the kids from "Hey Arnold," how to write a movie about literally saving a cat ("Keanu"), how to get marriage advice from Method Man, and how to use nihilism to have a sunnier view of the world. Then we play On the Bright Side, where we try to stay positive during terrible situations. If your wife has left you for a guy who does parkour, this episode is for you. *Also, sorry about the subpar audio quality of this episode. We had some technical issues and promise to fix it next time!

IGN's Destin Legarie teaches us how to face your life when it's a mess, how to play video games for a living, how to leave Canada, how to have one of the top Wolverine websites in the world, how to love the old internet, how to get scammed by a for-profit college, how to livestream Pokemon Go, how to be alone, and finally, Destin teaches us what brown can do for you. Then we play Embracing the Mess, where Destin tells us how to solve any life problem. How would you save a group of homeless ferrets? How far would you go?

Co-host Jess Dweck teaches us (well, one of us) how to follow your passion and change careers, how to enjoy Pokemon Go without loving Pokemon, how to host a dog fashion show in Brooklyn, how to poke holes in the airtight plot of "Love Actually," how to abandon science for blogging, how to get paid writing for the internet, how to enjoy watching couples fight on HGTV, how to pick a grad school, how to get around Los Angeles on foot, and how to lose a job because of Twitter. Then we play "The Wisdom of Dweck," where Jess explains some of her famous quotes. Always remember: Dietary norms are arbitrary.

"Tonight Show" writer Chase Mitchell (@chasemit) teaches us how to deal with panic attacks, how to get noticed by Amy Schumer, how to grow up in Atlanta and learn to love Tyler Perry, how to switch from journalism to comedy, how to get published by College Humor, how to do a terrible Madea impression, how to sing the "Jurassic World" theme, how to write for Paul McCartney, and how to have sex during a panic attack. Then we play Say The Same Thing and fail spectacularly at trying to say the same word at the same time. Plus, Drucker sings some of his favorite video game music. So, uh, YEAH, you know you want to listen to this one.
