Pretty much everything with Ria Lina
Race, religion, gender, sexuality, politics, kids, pandemics...all in under an hour? We don't know how we managed it either, but in this episode we covered it all!
Ria Lina isn't just a hilarious comedian, she was also a virologist, and her intellectual curiosity took us on some of our favourite tangents yet!

We're afraid you'll have to find her on Linkedin yourself...
