It’s the first week of the Maximum Fun Pledge Drive, wherein we show what we’re made of. Literally. Genetics guru Dr. Wayne Grody walks us through the human genome, and explains why its riddles go a little bit deeper than “23andMe.” But we’re not calling it a rip-off, because we’ve got forensic psychologist Dr. Jasmine Tehrani on hand to tell us what a REAL con job is all about. Plus, we don’t just get into Paula and Adam’s genes, we also get into their jeans. And we find out if either are too tight.

Professor in the Departments of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, Pediatrics, and Human Genetics at the UCLA School of Medicine

The outrage is palpable as Paula processes a horrifying betrayal: Butterfinger has an “improved” new recipe! Investigations and taste-tests ensue, including a cameo from the actual “Mikey” from the Life cereal commercials. Then we dig deeeep into massage with neuromuscular therapist Michael Greenspan. And finally, do you love or hate the urban scooter craze? It turns out that personal injury attorneys love it... and hate it. Attorney Catherine Lerer walks us through how even if the revolution won’t be televised... it WILL be litigated.

In this episode we explore the two things that make Paula’s home challenging: Ping-pong and mold. First, table tennis champion Kim Gilbert lets us in on all the deep secrets of her craft... including basic rules. Then, Dr. Marc Meth (yes, real name!) re-educates us about the horrors of mold. Spoiler alert: Way less horrifying than you thought. Thanks, Internet! Also, will you be framed for “vomiting in your Uber?” If you live in Miami...mayhap. Mayhap.

Is Paula’s trainer really doing what’s best for her, or does he just get better cell reception on the gym floor? Kelly Dormandy, head strength and conditioning coach for the LA Sparks, explains peak fitness without breaking a sweat. Then - why can’t Paula and Adam recognize each other? USC’s Dr. Irving Biederman walks us through the science of facial recognition, and why some of us suck at it. Also, Paula and Adam discuss which was less pleasant - the Polar Vortex in the Midwest or the possum in our faces on Miranda Street.

It’s Valentine’s Day, and we talk to a bonafide matchmaker to find out why what she offers is better than Swiping Right. Then, in anticipation of this year’s rom-com “Isn’t it Romantic,” Paula and Adam revisit the most successful rom-com of all time, “Pretty Woman.” Does it hold up? And what, exactly, is being held up? Plus, was Paula hasty in rebranding the “tramp stamp?” Our Dutch friends tell us why we should’ve gone for “ass antlers.”

Remember when we had that anxiety expert talk Paula through her audition nerves? How’d that work out? Well, this week we have casting director Jeanie Bacharach on hand to fine tune Paula’s technique. And teacher Jason Shine comes by to talk about homework. We originally had some great questions, but the dog ate ‘em. Also - online kerfuffles! Paula and Adam have had a couple, and they do their level best to either find common ground or make things worse.

How do you manage wealth when you don’t have any? Stephen “Smart Money Steve” Rischall instructs Paula how to avoid going back to the days when she ate salt for dinner and sugar for dessert. Then LA Opera Chorus Master Jeremy Frank coaches Paula on how to sing our national anthem and thus rake in those sweet pre-game gigs. Also, Adam tries to help Paula improve her party chat skills, and we revisit our worst sponsor ever: Ed’s Dehydration Pills.

Paula has an audition coming up, so it’s fitting that we’re looking into Looking Good and Feeling Good. First, plastic surgeon Dr. David Rosenberg explains what it takes to take away a tattoo - how do you get that anchor removed from your bulging forearm before you apply for that job at the spinach factory. Then, therapist Marc Weiss explains how to cope with anxiety, and how Paula can conquer it before her audition. Also - hot sauce! Is “El Diablo” actually the work of the Devil?
