Jake Johnson (New Girl, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse) and Gareth Reynolds (The Dollop) don't feel qualified to give strangers good advice. Most of their friendship over the last 15 years has been based around dumb bits, but they do (for better or worse) want to try to help people out. Like your friendly local bartender or your tipsy uncle at a family gathering, Jake and Gareth are on the caller's side and trying to help. Each episode, the guys make several pitches to callers (whose questions range from trivial to serious) with their best attempts of advice. They can't promise their suggestions will be perfect, but it will be the best they've got. Jake and Gareth also occasionally bring on a friend, peer or even an expert to help along the way.

I just binged this podcast and I’m so sad I’m caught up. These guys are so funny and (sometimes) give sort of OK advice. I hope things start looking up for Gil.
I hope this podcast continues until Jake and Gareth are wheezing into their microphones as 87 year olds giving (still) questionable advice. Perfection.
A+ No Notes
My girlfriend was honestly worried about me because I laugh so hard I’m out of breath. Every. Time.
