Comedy writer Rachel Klein (New Yorker, McSweeney's) teaches us how to deal with teens, how to convert to and away from ultra-Orthodox Judaism, how to buy a good wig, how to teach improv to religious people, how to love U2, how to mediate fights between your kids, and how to stop a bully. Then we play a game where Rachel comes up with the clueless parent name for stuff in pop culture.

Actor and comedian Lauren Ashley Bishop (@sbellelauren) teaches us how to get through the waking nightmare we now live in by switching up your Grubhub routine, how to manage depression, how to escape from Arkansas, how to reluctantly audition for mom roles, how to do short-form improv at a Bar Mitzvah, how to raise a cute rescue dog, and how to talk to Alexa. Then we ask Lauren to come up with captions for fake dog photos on Instagram. They are very good boys. The dogs. Or girls. Dogs can be anything they want. (DiSCLAIMER: No one on this podcast is an actual mental health professional. If you are suffering from depression, see a professional and do not take our dumb advice, except this advice to seek professional help. That's always good.)

"Yo, Is This Racist?" podcast host Andrew Ti teaches us how to punch people, how to start a successful podcast, how to be a creepy photographer, how to be a good blogger, how to know when you're being racist, how to enjoy the Matt Damon movie "The Great Wall," and how to not break your thumbs when throwing a punch. Then we play a game where Andrew tells us how he'd fight various public figures. He also tells us how he'd beat Drucker in a fight. Can he do it? Of course he can. Literally anyone can. As always, please Like and Subscribe to our podcast and leave a review if you liked it. And donate to our Patreon at Patreon.com/howtobeaperson.
