"Saltier than Mr. Peanut's jock strap"*

Happy 300 episodes!! I am a Day 1 and this podcast has been with me through 10 moves, 2 job changes, and several road trips over the last 6 years. Today Michaela shouted out Erin's nicknames for terrible people, which are great, but so are her allusions, similes, and metaphors. The whole crew is awesome and I thank them for supplying most of my news😜
* if I am remembering correctly, this is from summer of 2020. I heard it when I was pulling in to my garage parking space. Laughed out loud

I love this pod so much! The combination of intelligence/snark/humor makes me look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays, especially since I listen to it at work.

Hysteri-a-cal

But not ha ha. Enjoy the warm glass of narrative and hypocrisy.
