Unfolding world events are messing with Will Arnett and Marc as they sit in the garage, but they won't let the existential terror stop them from tracking Will's path and finding out how growing up in Toronto, getting kicked out of school, becoming a voiceover actor, hanging out at UCB, doing off-Broadway plays and working on failed pilots all led to Arrested Development. They also discuss how the lines between fiction and reality got blurred while Will was making his new show, Flaked. This episode is sponsored by Missing Richard Simmons, Squarespace, and Casper.

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams knows there's a stark difference between the way he views the work throughout his career and the popular perception of it.

If Steve Jones was going to start a band after a troubled upbringing filled with petty crime, it makes sense that the band wound up being the Sex Pistols.

Also, Marc's neighbor Jed Maheu of the Zig Zags stops by to premiere the band's new song. This episode is sponsored by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO and Shari's Berries.
