Is there a guest as wonderful as Lauren Lapkus? Probably not. Lauren joins Matt to talk about playing Vivian, one of the control room workers dealing with the chaos that unravels in Jurassic World. We hear about how Lauren had to get NASA clearance to shoot her scenes, what it's like to be in a mega-blockbuster, and her experience auditioning for Star Wars Episode 8. As a bonus, Lauren tells us what it was like working alongside Joe Pesci and Don Rickles in a Snickers commercial. Later, Matt shares an exclusive and deep cover interview with a secret guest who also auditioned for Star Wars Episode 8. Plus, Matt answers listener questions in the return of I Was There Q&A!
