In this very special interview bonus, Knox and Jamie talk with Megan Tietz of the Sorta Awesome podcast.

In the interview, Megan answers some pressing pop culture-themed questions, while Knox and Jamie weigh in on her answers, the validity of them and any rabbit trails that may ensue while deliberating.

Knox and Jamie offer the fourth chapter in their most favorite series, Urban Dictionary". In it, they seek to expand the cultural vocabulary of everyone by introducing phrases like "eye broccoli" and "glitter af".

Knox and Jamie talk about celebrities who broke bad: the surprising, the not-so surprising and the inexplicable. They also go into what a run-in with the law can do for your career both in the negative and positive.

They also take time to look back on the year in pop culture with America's birthday coming up and cover what is probably her proudest three moments as well as her most regrettable moments.
