FROM THIS EPISODE

At first, it's super annoying, getting told it'll make sense when you're older. Then, when you're a teenager, hard lessons are learned, despite your best efforts to be too cool to care. By the time you're actually old, you know a bunch of stuff — and you're desperate to hold onto it. You might even wonder how you know all the things you know. Hosted by Chana Joffe-Walt and featuring SNL's Sasheer Zamata.
