Greg Heller is back and he may have been so loud at work he caused Busy Phillips and her whole staff to move offices. Also he refused to receive a mantra while produce shopping. Alison and Daniel are moving this week and they are stressed. Alison can't throw anything out and Daniel took a humiliating spill outside. Plus we live video streamed this episode to Patreon and made the guy running the stream chime in from time to time. (His name is Dax Schaffer.) Alison is averse to human touch, according to Daniel. And Renee and Greg bond over yoga cults. Plus an email about sopapillas and a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

We have some ideas for car wash improvements. Jordan Morris is back and he knows a shocking amount of trivia about the La Brea Tar Pits. Alison did a corporate gig and flew semi-private and now she's been ruined for all real jobs and commercial flights. Also she had pregnant-lady cous cous disaster. (She choked on a cous and pissed herself.) Plus various cities we've spent time in, iTunes comments of the week, a round of Just Me Or Everyone and why it is that Jordan and Alison do that thing they do.

The list of shows Kathryn Burns has choreographed is highly impressive. In addition to her work on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend she's worked on Key & Peele, Workaholics, Another Period, Garfunkel & Oates, Wet Hot American Summer, Better Things, Jimmy Kimmel, Comedy Bang Bang and more. She's a go-to comedy choreographer but she's also worked with Carly Rae Jepsen and Pharrell. She's the first choreographer I've had on the show and I was fascinated to learn how it all works and also that there's no union that represents TV and film choreographers. We also talked about her path, UCB, nursing, body image, her family, serendipity and so much more. Plus we took questions from listeners and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.
