This week on The Hash, DJs Molly and Dane pick out some of the best dating theories from How I Met Your Mother in honor of the series finale. Then, the pair chats about celebrities who seem to be photoshopping their Instagram photos. Later, writer Beth Lalonde joins the show with a conversation about sexual assault in Hollywood.
