Added DiffLines:

* MommasBoy: Jake, to a tee. He'll constantly go on about how much he loves his mom, and he even had her on the show as a guest on episode 32. Also, whenever the podcast takes a turn for the raunchy, he'll personally tell his mom to turn the volume down for the next two minutes.


On the podcast, Jake and Amir read fan submitted emails about their listeners' daily life problems; "sticky situations," if you will; and they try to give the best advice they can (while taking plenty of time to make fun of the letter writer). Most of the questions they get involve love and dating, but they also tackle a range of other subjects, including family, friendship and work. Several celebrities have made guest appearances on the show, including Ben Schwartz (of ParksAndRecreation fame), Allison Williams (star of HBO's Series/{{Girls}}), former NBA legend Rick Fox, and rapper Hoodie Allen.

Added DiffLines:

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Amir makes all of his passengers fear for their lives whenever he gets behind a wheel, as recounted by Jake in Episode 39. Guest star Streeter Seidell had this to say:
-->'''Streeter''': I've never seen anyone drive so much like a grandpa... while going so fast.

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyJealousGuy: Episode 15 had one letter writer who was overly paranoid about his girlfriend cheating on him. Apparently, he wanted advice on how to "recognize cheaters" and "catch them in the act," adding that he wasn't sure he could trust ''anyone'', especially not his girlfriend. This was Jake's response:
-->'''Jake''': Holy shit, dude. ''Never'' be in a relationship.

!!This podcast provides examples of:
* CatchPhrase: By now they have a dozen of them. “You do you,” “seize the cheese,” “todah” and “things got real,” just to name a few.
* CouchGag: Each episode begins with a new fan submitted theme song.
* DemonicPossession: Episode 152 featured a letter from a girl who was convinced that her brother ''might'' have fallen victim to this (though she was "99%" sure that he was just messing with her).
* DisappearedDad: Episode 7 features a letter from a young teenage boy whose father was never around to teach him to shave.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Several of their letters come from male fans talking about their unrequited crushes.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Averted in Episode 24. One fan talked about a girl in his circle of friends who would constantly hit him with little provocation, and both Jake and Amir agreed that it wasn't okay and that he absolutely shouldn't have to take it.
* DrivenToSuicide: In the first episode, Jake and Amir envision a scenario that ends with the first letter writer [[ItMakesSenseInContext killing himself at a Starbucks]]. This later became a running joke throughout the series.
* EvilIsPetty: This trope perfectly describes the evil alter ego Jake and Amir invented for their coworker, Jon Wolf. Frequently, they'll recount stories of Wolf going to extreme lengths to make the lives of others a little more inconvenient (in ways that are, technically, not illegal). Sometimes, for instance, he'll go down to the retirement home and tell all of the patrons that their grandchildren are there to see them, just to disappoint them when they come to the lobby and see nobody waiting for them.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Discussed in episode 147, which featured a tall girl who had trouble finding a man who was comfortable with being shorter than her.
* NoSocialSkills: Jake and Amir’s impression of the second letter writer from Episode 40, who was asking for first date advice. The letter was so awkwardly worded that the two hosts speculated that the fan could be an alien, or a computer.
* RedOniBlueOni: Jake and Amir, respectively. When giving advice, Jake tends to let his passions get the best of him, while Amir’s advice is usually calm, measured and logical.
* RhymesOnADime: Both Jake and Amir love to do this whenever they can, but Amir in particular takes every opportunity he gets to show off his rhyming skills.
