Last season saw Abbi and Ilana dealing with a whole new slew of everyday challenges including a trip to the DMV, new hookups, visiting Abbi's dad, and a rat in the apartment. Now it's time for these NYC broads to head to San Diego! Co-creators, writers, and stars Abbi and Ilana will give audiences a sneak peek of the new season returning this August. The Broad City girls take you inside the writers' room for a vibrant discussion of what goes on behind the scenes. Broad City returns for season 4 this August on Comedy Central. YAAAS!

Behind the Plastic: How Your Favorite Action Figures and Collectibles Get Made

Superheroic Science with Joy Lin
Grand 1 & 2, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
The author of popular animated series "If superpowers were real" on TED.com discusses the real-life implications and scientific issues of having superpowers.
