We Just Like to Talk is two friends, Kara and Becky, who will talk about literally anything with one another. From friendship to feminism, from reading and romance to philosophy and pop culture, our topics are varied and our opinions outlandish but it’s never a dull moment when we’re in conversation. We’re not experts, but we hope our audience can find something useful—or at the very least entertaining—from our conversations.
