Jimmy Pardo (Never Not Funny) returns to the show to talk about whether he actually owes me $20 (he does), a shared love of Jesus Christ Superstar, Sarah Silverman, if Alison is the female Jimmy, conversations that make you sound arrogant, being "hosty" in real life, Jimmy's temper, the occasional fight with Matt Belknap, parenthood, random moments that pop into your head way too often, home office layouts and more. We also took your questions and did a quiz! Plus "How Dare You?" on Patreon.

Kevin T. Porter is back and he's teaching us Christianese. It's very intentional and our corporate enjoyed it? I think I did that wrong. Also there's an update on my pastor-neighbors and I think this show is slowly or maybe quickly killing Daniel's soul. Plus Renee knew she should decline a marriage offer but went through with it anyway. Listen to hear how that turned out. And so much more including my review of Ad Astra and reclining seats.

Theresa Thorn (One Bad Mother, Maximum Fun) stops by the show to talk about It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity, the beautifully illustrated children's book she authored, which she says is for everyone and which was inspired by her own transgender daughter's journey and the desire for a book which could provide people with the language to discuss gender. We also talk about her involvement with the podcast network Maximum Fun which she runs with her husband Jesse Thorn, law school, meeting Jesse in high school, motherhood, being the "manager" of the house, the experience of having three kids and so much more.

If you can't make it to someone's event should you let them know beforehand or is it better to just explain after the fact? The table is divided! Jackie Johnson joins us to discuss NEW Jackie and why swimming with sharks was a terrible idea. Plus a LOT of #GalChat and a new nickname for Tony which I hope sticks but I bet he doesn't. And more!

Erin Gibson (Throwing Shade, Feminasty, Groceries, History: The Shequel) stops by the show to talk about buying a multi-unit property in Santa Fe for her sick father, mother-in-law and husband's brother to live in and turning the other units into chic rentals. She shares about the process of advocating medically for her father, watching him nearly die in front of her, relocating him, learning how to effectively take care of him and the effect the experience has had on her. Turns out Santa Fe suits her in such an overpowering way that in the course of writing this summary I've sold my home and now I live in Santa Fe. Also she took advice from a witch. We also chat about her feelings about the industry, family members' reactions to Feminasty, astrology, coincidences, her many podcasts and more. P.S. Very much almost named this episode, "Erin Gibson Says 'Eat Sh*t, Denise.'"
