Megan and Wendy ease back into regular podcasting with a pop culture round up episode. What does that mean? They are sharing everything they are listening to, reading and watching. From American rock music, rom-com and murder podcasts, and so much television (including several trash TV shows). Plus, Megan poses an interesting question about baseball (stick with us here, it’s thought provoking), the dreaded waterpark playdate and a sea of people in Chicago.
