Everyone knows that VEEP star Anna Chlumsky is charming and impressive. You might not know, however, that she is also a Star Wars super nerd, a Belgian beer connoisseur, and is extremely well-informed about digestive health. Anna shares all this and more when she joins Anna and Sim in this week’s episode. Listen in as both Annas and Sim talk about male vs. female gold-diggers, weird pregnancy cravings, and the importance of following one’s instincts. They also play a hilarious new game: Politician or Real Housewife? Finally, the girls try to help a pregnant woman figure out how to handle her judgmental and competitive mom friends.
Part 2 picks up with calls from two Unqualified listeners in need of relationship advice. First, Anna, Sim and Paul talk to a woman whose husband is a terrible gift-giver. Listen in as Paul enlightens her about the “Languages of Love” and the gang brainstorms about how to point him in the right direction. Next, they call Brittany, a woman who has been involved for six months with a stand-up comedian she met on a dating app. Paul and Anna leave no stone unturned in trying to help her figure out whether she likes him enough to commit to a possible long-distance relationship and, if so, how to talk to him about their relationship…as illustrated through another hilarious role-play. Their advice may or may not be good, but one thing is for sure: Brittany’s boyfriend is going to be in a state of shock by the time he finishes listening to this episode!
Actor/Comedian and Improv genius Paul Scheer (The League, Fresh Off the Boat, “How Did This Get Made?” podcast) stops by Anna’s house this week for another hilarious two-part episode. Picking up where his podcast co-host/prior Unqualified guest Jason Mantzoukas left off, Paul and Anna role-play a scene in which an ebullient screenwriter (Paul) must come up with plots for hilarious movie titles proposed by his studio executive boss (Anna). Later, Paul offers everything from conversation etiquette tips to unforgettable impressions, including Batman auditioning for an erectile dysfunction drug commercial and Indiana Jones passing out samples at Costco. Anna also shares the story behind the Unqualified cover photo and practices her sales pitch for chicken nuggets. Plus, Paul brings an item that Sim describes as the “weirdest thing [they’ve] ever had on the show.” You’ll never guess what it is! And be sure to tune in tomorrow when the gang hits the phones to dish out relationship advice!

Chelsea Handler. Anna Faris. Marijuana-infused lubricant (yes, that’s a thing). Need we say more? Join in the fun in Part 2 of this episode, as Chelsea and Anna get a new — and unusual — kind of buzz. The gang then hits the phones to dish out some unqualified advice. First, Anna, Sim and Chelsea offer some tough love to a woman concerned that her sister is set to marry a guy she met just two months ago, despite NUMEROUS red flags. Then, the gang tries to help a caller figure out what to do after she finally made out with her long-time crush…but he hasn’t spoken to her for two months since. Anna and Sim share their perspectives, but Chelsea makes a strong case for a bolder approach — see who you think is right!
Chelsea Handler is unfiltered, unapologetic and unlike anyone else. The comedian/talk show host joins Anna and Sim this week, bringing to bear her acerbic wit and take-no-prisoners approach to love and life. In Part 1 of this two-part episode, Chelsea explains why she hates compliments, terms she finds most offensive and what exactly it takes to be her friend. She and Anna also trade break-up stories (you won’t believe how ballsy Chelsea is!) and discuss other dating misadventures. Then, in a new segment, Sim gives Anna and Chelsea twenty guesses to identify a mystery celebrity guest-caller. (See if you can figure out who it is before they do!) After Anna’s unbridled excitement subsides, the trio reflects upon the “intoxicating” effect of fame and the ups and downs of life in the Hollywood spotlight.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow for Part 2 – you definitely won’t want to miss the surprise gift that Anna and Sim have in store for Chelsea!
Tiffany Haddish tells it like it is. The breakout star of “Keanu” joins Anna and Sim this week, showcasing both her incredible comedic talents as well as her astounding personal resilience. Tiffany opens up to Anna about her journey from the “hood” to the Hollywood red carpet, discussing how she was shaped by her experience in the foster care system and how she found the strength to pursue—and accomplish—her dreams against all odds. As outrageously funny as she is inspiring, Tiffany also has Anna and Sim in stitches throughout the episode as she talks about her friends, family, and her plan to sell a “special” hair growth product on QVC. And you definitely won’t want to miss Tiffany’s brilliant – and explicit – advice to Anna about how to communicate with men! Finally, the gang talks to a caller whose best friend declined to attend her birthday getaway weekend—even after her husband offered to buy her BFF’s ticket. Not sure she was ready for the advice that Anna and Tiffany dished out!
Rising star Britt Robertson (MOTHER’S DAY, TOMORROWLAND, THE LONGEST RIDE) joins Anna and Sim for another fun-filled episode of “Unqualified.” Anna, Britt and Sim discuss why actors tend to date other actors and why becoming a yoga instructor is the most sure-fire way to marry someone rich—regardless of whether you’re male or female! Anna also describes her fantasy sleepaway camp and asks Britt “not-so-rapid-fire” questions involving jail, cliff-diving, and a man named Hudson. Plus, the gang helps a female caller decide whether to tell her friend that her boyfriend cheated on her…with another friend in their social group! And stay tuned til the end — with Mother’s Day just around the corner, you won’t want to miss Anna’s words of wisdom about motherhood!

Jason Mantzoukas (The League, The Dictator, Sleeping With Other People) is one of the funniest guys in Hollywood. His madcap energy is on full display when he joins Anna and Sim for this week’s episode of “Unqualified.” Among other memorable moments, Jason shares an outrageous story about how one unfortunate incident forever changed his “laissez-faire attitude towards farting.” Anna and Jason also showcase their improv skills by role-playing a scene in which a stoner college drop-out (Jason) applies for a job as the second assistant to a powerful movie studio executive (Anna). The gang also handles some tricky calls this week. First, they talk to a caller whose gay BFF set her up with a man who he himself has a crush on. Then, Jason and Anna have a heart-to-heart with a woman whose family disapproves of her dating a Jewish man. Sim can barely contain his laughter throughout this mile-a-minute episode – and we’re pretty sure you won’t be able to either!
