I vividly remember categorizing my stickers by type in the early 1980s, placing them one by one onto the pages of a slick-surfaced album. The fuzzy stickers were my favorite, especially if they were cute little animals. No matter what decade you grew up, you likely have some sort of memory related to stickers... even if it started with scrapbooking. In this episode I'm joined by Laura Wonsik and her childhood best friend, Annie Simkin. Together they have created the BFF Sticker Club, an Instagram community that celebrates a love of stickers and encourages you to not just collect them, but to use them.
