Whatever Happens, Happens! w/ Nick Kroll
S1E8: Nick Kroll joins TCGS for an episode that we did… dangerously little planning for. We didn’t screen any of our phone calls before the show, and were 100% game to talk about anything that you wanted. Turns out you wanted to talk largely about menstrual cups. So…!

We’ll Sleep When We’re Cancelled w/ Seth Meyers
S1E3: Seth Meyers came directly from taping an episode of his very professional “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to our very not professional The Chris Gethard Show, where we put on one of our most surreal shows to date.
