Anna, Sim and Julia field one of our most emotional calls since we started the podcast, as Giovani discusses his heartbreaking yet inspiring situation.
“Bourne Ultimatum” star Julia Stiles joins Anna and Sim for this week’s two-part episode of “Unqualified.” Listen in as Julia opens up about her musical ambitions, her pigeon phobia, and why baseball is “her valium.” Anna also recounts her mom’s reaction to Scary Movie, and contemplates the many words for genitalia in the English language. Lastly, Sim and Anna give Julia some off-the-wall hypos involving garden gnomes and the Mets. You won’t want to miss her answers!
The outrageously funny Phoebe Robinson, host of “2 Dope Queens” and “Sooo Many White Guys,” joins Anna and Sim this week, along with her friend, comedian Jamie Lee. The gang discusses topics including flight attendants, “Sex and the City,” nightmare auditions, Anna’s Oprah encounter, and Donald Trump! Also, prior caller Katie (James Gunn episode, Part 2, 15:35 mark) calls in to give an update about the uncomfortable situation with her recently-discovered birthmother. Finally, Anna, Sim, Phoebe and Jamie try to help a listener who is worried about her brother’s gold-digging fiancé.
We have a special treat in store, dear listeners! Introducing the first episode of “Inside Unqualified,” an experimental bonus show that we’re trying out in addition to the show you heard this week. Sim hosts a roundtable discussion with Unqualified “insiders,” including his girlfriend, Amy; close friends/former musical guests Aria Pullman Ostrander and Josh Ostrander (who wrote and sang the “Uqualified” theme song); and Anna and Sim’s longtime friend, actress Alexandra Holden. The gang relives some of their favorite Unqualified moments so far and calls one of the most loyal Unqualified fans to get her take. Sim also shares some behind-the-scene stories, including the lead-up to Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt’s phone call on the first Aubrey Plaza episode, and what he and Amy observed while recording the Chris Evans and Jenny Slate episode. And while Anna isn’t on the inaugural episode of “Inside Unqualified,” trust us, she definitely feel the love!

The gang also offers very sweet words of encouragement to Maria, who’s nervous about losing her virginity next month on her wedding night! Oh, and Anna explains the science behind why her p###y is the “tightest in hollywood.” You don’t want to miss this.

For all that YouTube sensation Shane Dawson talks about his “dark side,” he’s pretty f*cking hilarious. Nothing is off-limits when he stops by Anna’s house for a riveting–and raunchy discussion–of topics including his recurring sexual nightmare and fantasy celeb sex tape participants. Later, Anna, Sim and Shane explore the ephemeral nature of celebrity, and Shane shares his unique perspective on digital media stardom. Anna also nails the role of Shane’s mom in an improv scene that will have you laughing out loud. Oh, and we promise that after listening to this episode, you’ll never look at ranch dressing the same way again!
Join the Unqualified gang tomorrow for Part 2 when we hit the phones for some listener calls!
Moving on from the fascinating convo about porn in Part 1, the gang hits the phones in Part 2 to take calls from listeners.

Anna, Retta, and Aubrey dish out both tough love and hilarious advice in response.
