Drucker and Dweck talk about the passing of Drucker's grandmother and learn how to mourn a family member, how to value the arc of a life, how to have the worst birthday ever, how to help with a funeral, how to drunkenly burn yourself on a stove, how to use humor to deal with death, how to celebrate your 23andMe results, and most importantly, how to play Disney Yahtzee.

Actor, writer, DJ and overall cool person Mel Shimkovitz teaches us how to be cool, how to cheat the system, how to be a great wingman, how to own land, how to write plays for yourself, how to recycle, how to be an enemy of the Westboro Baptist Church, how to live in Europe, how to queer gender norms, and how to sell your tampons for 50 bucks a pop. Then Drucker tells a hilarious story about getting pantsed in middle school.

Comedy writer Dicky Eagan (Late Late Show, Tonight Show) teaches us how to hate Boston people less, how to talk to Larry David, how to go from Emerson to Hollywood, how to stay employed in television for over two decades, how to be a PA for "Roseanne," how to write for a late night show, how to be back at work a week after having your femur sawed off, and how to be the biggest Patriots fan on earth. Then Dicky fails miserably at a game of Tom Brady trivia. And, yes, "Dicky" is his real name!

World-famous bartender Erick Castro teaches us how to travel the world making drinks and judging booze, how to tell the difference between whiskeys, how to use bitters, how to tell the difference between a good and a bad craft cocktail, how to handle a drunk person crapping themselves, and how to make the perfect Old Fashioned. Then he tells us the perfect mixed drink for each of us. Drucker's is as sad as he is! As always, if you like our show, please subscribe and review us on iTunes.

"Whitest Kids U' Know" co-founder and comedian Sam Brown teaches us how to catch some gnarly waves, how to start a successful sketch comedy group, how to create your own TV show, how to deal with the Sandwich Police, how to tell the difference between Hitler and Charlie Chaplin, how to get an unfortunate Elvis tattoo, and how to stand up on a surfboard. Then we play "Name It," where we make Sam come up with sketch group names for random things.
