Love and need

Randomly started rewatching Laguna and then found out about this podcast …im in.

The best!

I watched the show when it originally aired on MTV and became an instant fan. I was always rooting for Stephen and Lauren, but for Kristin as well, as crazy as that might sound! I appreciated the differences in your personalities for different reasons. Kristin - for being “confident” and assertive. But also, for showing a vulnerability toward her friendships in Season 2. Lauren - for her quiet confidence and uncommon maturity at that age. And it’s so great to see the incredible adults that you’ve turned into and to listen to these memories.. you’re the best!

Take me back to 2004

Nostalgia!! This is great! I’m so glad they’re doing it. I love hearing how much they’ve grown and all the behind the scenes stuff.
