The problem: "John’s touched more dicks than you’ve had hot dinners", referring to one of John's friends back when he was in his 20s who was bragging about how fluid his relationships were, while John didn't have the heart to tell him the truth about his own situation.

The show title refers to John's millennial girlfriend being a SnapChat employee and John being close to that world while they were together.

During the recording of the show, John’s mom came in and handed him a note that said ”I’m sorry, I’m getting sick and I’m going home to bed. I’ve given Peter the codes to the storage unit” It became not clear from the note what his mom and Peter had discussed.

John was asked at a party what was involved in making a podcast and he said that he goes up in the morning, microwaves a cop of coffee and talks to his friends. They both took a small step back because John microwaves his coffee.
