    Episode 132: Pineapples and the Purge

    In episode 132, Rosie and Jessica discuss how to be a good guest (pineapples) and what is and what isn’t camp (pineapples – pretty camp.) There’s a mysterious model boat which sounds exactly like a plot point in an episode of Murder, She Wrote.

    Episode 131: Scams and Exams

    In episode 131, Rosie and Jessica somehow get distracted from the goings-on in the world at large and instead talk about how to scam your way through a university-level Latin exam. That’s kind of it.

    Yesterday of Fun...Episode 111: Spectacles and Hairpins

    Jessica has some essay deadlines this week so we’re hopping back into the archive. As RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 has just wrapped up, we’re looking back to 2018 and Episode 111, where we discussed the end of Season 10 and, some would say, predicted the post Drag Race career of one Vanessa Vanjie Matea.

Like drinking tea with your best friends

The title says it all! Also, they got me into Hamilton, so I wish I could rate them 1000000*.

SomeBelgian ,

I like this show.

Some of the places you can enjoy this show: a train, a bus, a plane, a car, the tube, Madrid, or maybe somewhere else.

Nimpaler ,

Listen to this if you like things!

Rosie and Jessica like to talk about food, crafting, films, TV and pretty much everything. That's something I can get behind.
