Aasif Mandvi
Couples Therapy
by Naomi and Andy
5d ago
We've enjoyed Aasif in numerous shows: from his time as a correspondent on The Daily Show to This Way Up to one of Andy's favs Evil (new season starts this Thursday!), but we didn't really know the man behind the actor... until today! That's right, we're talking to star of stage and screen Aasif Mandvi, and call Ron Howard, cuz we get in DEEP about parenthood! Aasif's child was born about three days before the Pandemmy was declared, so we talk all about that first year of parenting, parenting as a kind of therapy, Aasif's marriage and so much more! PLUS, obvi, we answer YOUR advice questions ..read more

Dr. Raven the Science Maven
Couples Therapy
by Naomi and Andy
1w ago
We started following Dr. Raven Baxter AKA Dr. Raven the Science Maven because she's researching Long Coco, but that just introduced us to the ever-expanding world of this engaging multi award-winning molecular biologist and science communicator! Maybe you've heard one of her viral rap songs about science or perhaps you've heard her brand-new science The Science of Life! Either way, we get in deep this week about many non-science topics such as how she met and eventually left her (now) ex-husband, dating in DC, why high school Science Olympiad was too nerdy even for her, diss tracks for your bu ..read more

by Naomi and Andy
2w ago
Our pal Bryan Safi joins us again this week, folks, and it's a goddamn delight! With our various jobs and 300 vet appointments a week, we haven't had a lot of time to socialize lately, so when we were thinking of people we wanted to have on the show, one of our main thoughts was: "Who do we want to catch up with?," and Bryan was top of that list! And of course, you know Bryan from the podcasts Ask Ronna, Attitudes! and No Autographs, Please and from the Fox show 9-1-1, and on today's episode we go *behind the curtain* and get in deep! We talk about how Bryan stopped talking and ultimately reco ..read more

We met Mekki casually around Los Angeles, and kinda knew him, but after today's episode, he's become one of our favs! Now, surely you know Mekki from The Sex Lives of College Girls or Jury Duty or maybe you read some Hollyweird insider article about him being on the show Naomi's currently writing for, St. Denis Medical, but gosh darnit, until you hear today's episode, you don't *know* Mekki! (Unless you are friends with him already, obvi). Chatting about his Moroccan Muslim mother leads us into a discussion about how his dad "hoodwinked" her into moving to a small Pennsylvania town, some of th ..read more

Holy heck do we have fun with Ally Maki on today's episode! Now you obviously know Ally from Shortcomings and The Big Door Prize or from just about 1000 other things... Hacks, Toy Story 4, Wrecked, Cloak & Dagger, but boy oh boy, you don't *know* Ally until you hear our chat! An innocuous question about Ally's Wikipedia page leads us down a rabbit hole of how she lived in an early-aughts version of a Hype House 1000 miles away from her family, and, well, we do talk about other stuff, like therapy as per uzshe, but really Ally goes in depth into her days as one of THE KIDS IN THE HOUSE! PLU ..read more

Couples Therapy
by Naomi and Andy

Tyrel Jackson Williams is in two of the best comedies of the last handful of years, Brockmire and Party Down, but waaaaay before those shows, Tyrel got his start as a child actor, playing a younger version of his brother on Everybody Hates Chris, playing one of Shirley's kids on Community, and tons of other things including the Disney show Lab Rats. We talk all about the how being a child actor psychologically screws with you, how wHite Hollywood makes you question who you are, being too queer for some black spaces and too black for some queer spaces, and how Tyrel began to figure some of this ..read more

The sequel to our 200th episode A Cavalcade of Stars, that's right, folks, it's our 300th episode 2 Cavalcade of Stars!

This was our first time meeting Rashida, but OF COURSE, we knew her from Jury Duty, and of course you know her from that, as well as, as a writer on great shows like South Side and Sherman's Showcase, and in the future you will know her from the new Marvel series Ironheart! And on this episode, taped back on Superbowl Sunday, we get in DEEP about cis male insecurity and how that manifests in Rashida's dating life, which seems to be populated by trifling and vainglorious pricks out to waste her time!
