We did a live show! At PodCon! In Seattle! We talked more about Claire's because it's been a while since we've reminded you all of the many joys and horrors of that store, and we had a sisterly secret Santa that may have been messed up by our littlest sister. Oh and we threw out scrunchies, lip smackers, and earrings, so if you were there we hope you enjoy and if you weren't...well...we're sorry.

Trigger Warning: Mention of suicide, sexual harassment/assault

We've all dealt with sexism in some form at some point in our lives, as cool teens, as cool adults, and everywhere in between. So let's talk about how this seemingly unavoidable part of life has changed and maybe not changed throughout the years. (Also we have some pretty important teen updates for you, Snapchat didn't work for about 3 hours, it was a state of emergency in the teen world.)
