SPOILER ALERT! You are cleared to listen to this episode if you are A. All caught up with the Serial podcast or B. Totally not interested in the Serial podcast. If B, Jessica Chaffin (Ronna and Beverly) and Janet apologize for talking so much about it. But not to worry- they also discuss several other disturbing events. SECOND SPOILER ALERT: Jessica Chaffin is terrific.

This week’s guest, the extraordinary Sarah Thyre, answers possibly the most pressing question facing Americans today: Where can you go to practice walking in high heels on cobblestone before your trip to Europe? And perhaps just as vital: How have Playboy boobs changed over the decades? Also, guess what? Sarah’s awesome!

The JV Club went live at the LA Podfest with special guests Kether Donohue (You’re the Worst) and musicians Ben Jaffe and Suzanne Santo, otherwise known as Honeyhoney, and what ensued was an afternoon of music, cookies, fake tattoos, and a double M.A.S.H. with Kether and Janet both finding out their 100% guaranteed fictional futures. Saddle up!

Episode 126 marks the last of the Boys of Summer series, and who better to class up the podcast than Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele)? Dog talk and tapeworm talk eventually give way to exploring identity as it relates to being adopted, how to get along with (almost) everybody, and the appeal of a really great plate of chili cheese fries.
