Jerry went broke working in Reno, Jesus critiques modern gangsters, Christian explains sleepovers, and a heated debate erupts about movie remakes with all-women casts.

Getting paid upfront was NOT a good idea for Jerry's week in Reno. He gambled his entire paycheck back to the casino. The guys break down Vegas for Jesus, who is SHOCKED by the amount of money they say you need.

All the Wannabes remember getting kicked out of their school bands. They get serious for a second and talk about being bullied.

Jerry and Jesus were never allowed to have sleepovers, so Christian reveals what happens and why they're great.

Then: Ghostbusters, Ocean's 8, and now, maybe, a female James Bond? The guys share their unfiltered thoughts about gender-swapped remakes, and an argument ensues.

Finally, the most heartfelt shout-out to the #1 podcast listener of all time: RIP Rickster. You will be missed. This one's for you.

The guys remember high school club life with their pimped-out rides and paisa mustaches! Plus, a review of the Popeye's chicken sandwich, and Jesus balls out.

Jerry's high school Zephyr was a chick magnet. This leads to talk of neon lights, spinning rims, thumping stereos, and all the ways dumbass high schoolers tried to make their shitty cars look dope.

Christian is a Groupon ho, and he wants everyone to be on the McDonald's app.

Jesus reveals he is a chicken professional, and the Wannabes go deep on Popeye's vs. Chick-fil-A vs. El Pollo Loco vs. KFC vs. Church's. The only discussion you'll ever need on the topic.

Then, Jerry again says what we're all thinking: Should you want your daughter to be super ugly or super hot? Christian struggles as a dad with jealousy he hasn't felt since high school.

And finally, Jesus threatens to piss in Jerry's face over pickup basketball, while Jerry demands Jesus own up to blowing a voiceover audition. Also, RIP Kevin Hart.

The guys talk performing for "urban" audiences, and Jerry shares the story of the time SWAT marched him out of his own house in his underwear.

Jerry and Jesus reflect on recent bombs, then break down the differences between black, white and Latino audiences. Christian just headlined his first American Wannabes standup show and missed his own intro.

Christian lives for the rush of busting would-be shoplifters. The Wannabes share recent encounters with cholos and cholas in the wild, then swap tales of their most ghetto childhood experiences.

Finally, Jerry talks about almost getting killed by the LAPD and the guys wonder if it's time to move out of LA...
