Comedian and "Chris Gethard Show" writer Will Miles teaches us how to mentally check out at important meetings, how to learn life lessons from the show "Blossom," how to avoid being stereotyped at a white college, how to get noticed by a commercial casting agent and make bank, and how to get punched in the face by a girl. Then we play a game of "Fuck, Marry, Kill" with great figures from Chicago. And also people Wikipedia said were from Chicago.

"Bill Nye" writer and radio host Sanden Totten teaches us how to be a JNCO-wearing punk, how to have Drucker as a boss, how to do a killer Ira Glass impression, how to be a "Game of Thrones" character, how to break into the sexy world of public radio, how to draw someone just from the sound of their voice, how to have fun in Bakersfield, California, how to rock out to a break-up song, and most importantly, how to deal with a dog that likes ska music. Then we play a game of "Punk Rock Grandma." What is that, you ask? We don't know! We just made it up!
