This week, we're discussing asking for help and ways to improve this important life skill. We discuss basic requests for help, how to prevent overgeneralization of the response, and high- and low-tech solutions for asking for help when lost. Plus, Rob goes out of his way to make the absolute worst jokes possible in a feeble attempt to lighten the mood.
