    Ep. 11 Can I Speak with the Manager? With special guest Karen Cooper

    Ep. 11 Can I Speak with the Manager? With special guest Karen Cooper

    Former co-worker and friend, Karen Cooper, joins us this week as we dissect the “Karen” slur. Our Karen is pretty far from the common memed Karens of the world but we discuss how all of us have a Karen within us, even men. Born and raised outside of Manhattan in a New Jersey suburb, Karen talks about the common misconceptions she dealt with. We also play a new game, and Hannah’s “What’s the Word” gets silly.

So much fun!

Hannah, Anna and Evan are hilarious! Love the concept behind the podcast and the What’s The Word at the end is really funny always. These three have a fantastic dynamic that leaves you wanting more.

The easy going podcast I’ve been looking for.

So many podcasts have become so heavy to listen to, it’s almost a chore. I’ve been looking for something fun that I can just listen to a bit worry about missing an episode or just have in the background. A friend recommended this, and it’s great. Love the presenters. Love the show. Keep them coming!
