176 Action Movies with Aisha Tyler

What makes a great action movie? Is it the chase scenes? The fights? The explosions? We don't really know the answers to this, but luckily for us, our friend Aisha Tyler does.

175 Reality TV with Lauren Lapkus

Or is it much deeper and more profound than people give it credit for? Can "Married at First Sight" be anything more than a guilty pleasure? Perhaps it's a social commentary. Find out where you stand on these important matters at earwolf.com
