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!
Judging from all the feedback on social media, you all love Patti as much as we do! Part Two is a little different; since Patti is our most “qualified” guest to date, we put her to the test. Two female listeners want to know why they can’t attract the men of their dreams…and boy does Patti let them know why! This episode may be a master class on what it really takes to have a fulfilling personal life. Whether you agree with Patti or not, prepare for some #truthbombs!
