Episode 9: Bourgey boy Luci

In today’s episode, there’s some 1 v 1 class warfare going on, with Luci revealing his very bourgeois roots. After Annika makes fun of Luci for about, oh, the first 10 minute of the podcast (join in, it’s fun teasing Luci), we move on to some really lovely news and some good music, podcast and tv recommendations. Oh, and some really quality jokes ;)

Episode 8: WRL is back, ALRIGHT!

Giovanni and Redavnia are back, alright! In today's episode, Luci just can't stop singing and is totally going to get us sued by the Backstreet boys - and JT wasn’t even in the Backstreet boys (he was in NSYNC). Oh, Luci - what a whackazoid. Annika's reclining (apparently, in a morph suit) and talking about her bleep bloop music again, so what else is new? p.s. Thanks for all your lovely itunes reviews!

CW/TW: Luci’s 2nd WRL segment. where domestic violence and substance abuse is discussed, begins at 24:33.

Episode 7: Oh no, I ended up gendering that chicken.

Why did the chicken go to the hot chicken shop? You'll have to listen to this week's episode to find out! This week it's a very chatty WRL, where we finally get onto our recommendations, including an awesome netflix original anime, Queer Eye and the cutest instagram account ever. And then Luci talks about history but don't worry, it's actually pretty interesting and leads to a discussion about the stereotypes we hold for different cities.

Episode 6: Luci's head started rotating 360 degrees and we DON'T know why.

The episode where we kinda rag on teens a bit (sorry, teens) and Luci manages to make one WRL into 2 like some kinda magic trick. Probably due to his rotate-itis. Also, a lot of fake news. Oh and can someone please explain Welcome to Nightvale to Annika?!? She just doesn't get it!
