this podcast reinforced what I always knew about lesbianism. it is a mental disorder and requires therapy. the part I enjoyed most about this podcast was the commercial for hello fresh. (its so simple even a lesbian can do it) liberalism is a mental disorder.

I loved the first season and couldn't wait for a day alone to listen at work. But the ads just totally killed it. Sorry I'm done listening.
