Pop Culture: 

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein interview each other (favourite moments: Fred talking about his favourite acts on SNL and tweeting about BeyoncĂ©; how much he loves Sleater-Kinney, Carrie reacting to that last part); spontaneously play Devo's Beautiful World after deciding against Billy Joel ("Fred is THE nicest guy"). 

Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman make "all other marriages look like gray, boring shams".

An interview with Ali Liebert who plays Betty on Bomb Girls, which is now one of my favourite current shows and is getting better with each episode (why are there only six?!).
