Good listen

Good content!

Movie/Missy/Mean Girls

Leaving a review to be able to tell you, the mean girls episode about “Missy” actually has a movie out from years ago called “A killer Among Friends” which answers a lot of the questions you guys sorta had throughout the podcast episode. It’s actually an amazing movie, check it out and maybe do an update!

Katiemei ,

Missed opportunity

Good concept and story opportunities but just a lot of talking nonsense and no effort to fact check themselves while talking on the fly. Feels like they’re making it up as they go.
