Before this week’s episode, Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki was a podcast virgin. Anna and Sim make sure that his first recording experience is a memorable one, complete with with Unqualified-style relationship hypotheticals and, of course, a Tinder date improv with Anna. In Part 1, Johnny also explains why he gets excited about criticism, what advice Roseanne gave him upon getting his role on Big Bang Theory, and the surprising reason he got into a fistfight with his brother on Christmas morning. Later, Anna and Johnny contemplate male vs. female sexual insecurity, and Johnny shares a hilarious story about dating a woman who did voodoo.
Join us tomorrow for Part 2 when the gang (plus Chris!) hits the phone to dish out some unqualified advice.
Anna and Sim are gearing up for football season and need some advice about how to get their significant others to enjoy their first fantasy football seasons. So who better to call than ESPN fantasy football guru Matthew Berry? Listen in as Anna and Matthew strategize about how she can help Chris win his celebrity league–and beat out Chris Evans and John Krasinski! Matthew and Sim also discuss why women who aren’t normally football fans (like Matthew’s wife and Sim’s girlfriend) should give fantasy football a chance. But don’t worry, it’s not all football talk! Anna and Sim put Matthew through the ringer with a “Relationship DealBreaker or Not: Football Edition,” and find out that football statistics aren’t all he’s good at analyzing. Enjoy!
Carrie finds herself in an awkward situation: after scrolling through her boyfriend’s phone, she discovered some incredibly inappropriate texts. Her call to the Unqualified gang leads to a surprisingly thoughtful discussion on what constitutes “cheating.” Then, Anna, Sim, and Eric talk to Jessica, who is freaked out because the rich guy she’s currently dating may be too good to be true. By the way, if at times you feel like you’re listening to a completely different Eric Andre, there is a reason for that. TWIDDLED MY BEAN! You’ll find out what that means as well!
Eric Andre is one of the most innovative—and unpredictable—comedians today, so get ready for a wild ride. On this week’s episode, Anna, Eric and Sim discuss Anna’s fan mail to the band 311, Eric’s sexual encounter outside of a castle in Prague, Anna’s kegal breaks on the set of MOM, “Precious” in IMAX 3D, and much more. At the end of the episode, Eric is pressured into taking a bite of something gross—you won’t believe what it is! Join us back here tomorrow for Part 2 when we hit the phones; you’re not going to want to miss out on Eric’s unqualified advice!
Be sure to check out Eric on Adult Swim. And if you really want to laugh, google “Eric Andre/Lauren Conrad” and “Eric Andre/RNC.”
Tavi Gevinson is many things: millennial icon, current TEEN VOGUE covergirl, editor-in-chief of ROOKIE, and the toast of Broadway. In this bonus episode, Anna and Tavi (and, unfortunately, Sim) have a frank and hilarious discussion about success at a young age, how Tavi got her start, and J.J. ABRAMS’ SON! You’ll have to hear Tavi’s story to believe it! No listener calls or games today, but we still find a way to fly off the rails. So stay tuned til the end and enjoy!
Anna couldn’t be more excited to host the legendary Courtney Love this week on Unqualified. Courtney describes the thrill of performing for a crowd, and gives some revealing answers when Anna and Sim ask her “Dealbreaker or Not?” dating questions. The gang also talks to a female caller whose live-in girlfriend hasn’t come out to her family, and tries to help a woman having disagreements about finances with her boyfriend. And the last two minutes of the show may be our best ending yet – you’ve never heard Anna like this before! Enjoy!
Anna, Sim and special guest Mike Birbiglia (DON’T THINK TWICE) take listener calls for part 2! Brie’s in-laws are pressuring her to have a baby while Mariah can’t stand the fact that her boyfriend is an avid Trump supporter. Will their relationship survive the election? Don’t skip this one! And please don’t forget to rate and review us on iTunes!
The brilliant and hysterical Mike Birbiglia (SLEEPWALK WITH ME, TRAINWRECK) joins Anna and Sim to discuss the phenomenal success of his indie DON’T THINK TWICE, starring Keegan-Michael Key. We also talk about Anna’s performance in LOST IN TRANSLATION, dating apps, and why Mike couldn’t cast Anna in his movie. Plus, Mike turns his awkward Uber ride to Anna’s house into another hilarious improv! The gang also plays “Dealbreaker?” and there may even be an appearance by everyone’s favorite Imaginarium Films executive. And don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for Part 2 when we go the the calls!
