The wonderfully talented and thoughtful Taylor Mallory joins the podcast this week to chat with Doug and Justin about how music affects us, how it works as a mode of time travel, and how our parents’ taste in music influenced us. The heroes then discuss their relatively spoiler-free thoughts on the recent Black Mirror episodes before turning to the topic of acting and finding a way to be vulnerable and access real emotions. The nerds then talk about effective ways to communicate, giving good feedback, and how to be a good person.

Things are wrapped up with a throw-down featuring Jared Leto vs. Marlon Wayans.
