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.
Music by Andrew Huang.
