Episode 25: Diners, Drive Ins, and All-American Dumpster Fires (aka Diners and American Politics)

Welcome to episode 25! If you thought we were a wee bit too drunk last episode, well, too bad, because this episode is off the rails. Also, Melissa’s audio in the beginning of this episode is janky, and we have no idea why! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ We’re killing it.

Melissa rocks some fun facts about America and alcohol, while Aimee explains the relationship between American diners and politics.

Enjoy!
