In this episode co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss the merits of various head sizes, how to be blond but not that kind of blond, a very odd coincidence created by two couples named “Ryan and Kim”, a lunar eclipse and letting go of old belief systems, eschewing Chinese astrology, what Grandma’s fortune cookie said, attacks on Grampy in the nursing home, looking for a pristine mansion to rent by the day, another unexpected technical glitch at the RCR studios, how an unfortunate power surge led to a bouncy house deflation, what to do with old magazines, impulse shopping at Twin City Typewriter, writing a book on index cards, alternative nomenclature for the outside of your elbow, wasting a perfectly good fire, more on pushy tourists arriving at closing time, enthusiastic nose pickers, a Reluctant Dragon event, a case of digital dementia, simplifying the ascension process, things that sisters text to each other, the art of casually mentioning celebrities, a white bread guy called Paul, the scars of T-ball humiliation, an incoming lodging request from Leonard, Emily & Abe the dog’s bonding over thunder phobia, the horrors of indoor toilets, keeping John away from the thrift store, Dorito-crazy ducks on the beach, constructing a feather cape, a theory of disclosure in which the president is found to be a hybrid extraterrestrial, a mysterious turkey sighting in downtown Montpelier - and so much more!
