Comedian Virginia Jones teaches us how to counteract negative energy, how to get anyone to like you, how to follow someone to another city, how to attend a comedy party, how to start fights on the street, and how to work for Nike. Plus, we play a game of, "What Do You Say to Them?" in which Virginia tells us what she'd say to diffuse any situation.

Comedian and writer Solomon Georgio teaches us how to manipulate people into doing your bidding, how to have a Christmas porn name, how to immigrate to America from Sudan, how to take apart "It's A Wonderful Life," how to have an American Christmas with immigrant parents, how to catch your dad cheating on your mom, how to pump gas, how to make neck farts, and how to do the world's worst Halle Berry impression. Then we play "Asking for It,"  where we find out what Solomon would ask of Anne Hathaway and Donald Trump.

Comedian and writer Talia Jane teaches us how to become internet infamous, how to publicly quit a job,  how to ease out of a crush, how to not hate millennials, how to solve economic inequality, how to fart in front of a partner, and how to enjoy the disturbing love letters of James Joyce. Then we quiz Talia and find out how to handle the worst possible situations with your crush.

"Adam Ruins Everything" host Adam Conover teaches us the secret to self-improvement, how to grow up with scientist parents, how to be a little bit vegan, how to accidentally create a TV show idea, how to be jealous of Ronan Farrow, how to quit smoking, and how to wear nail polish as a man without being goth. Then we run out of time before we can play a game, but you're getting some good advice here, and we barely talked about the election. Progress!
