Disclaimer: This episode has some issues because we pulled it from WAY back in the vault! This is one of the first episodes we ever recorded. It was a super fun episode and our hilarious guest told some of the best stories we've had BUT the audio was terrible so we shelved the episode. Unfortunately, Holly had to cancel recording to rush home for a funeral this week, so we decided we'd let y'all hear it anyway! It's rough, but it's funny and it's a fun look at how far we've come. Next week we'll be back with new-and-improved audio but listen for a fun time! --- This week our guest and Mary Jay's former roommate Shannon Jones shares how she hit her ex's new girlfriend’s new car with a bike and tales from partying with Britney Spears' love interest.
