Backpacks. An integral part of every teen/school experience. Something that seems as if it's remained constant throughout time, but has it? Despite the general idea remaining the same, a lot has changed about how the teens use their backpacks and what they keep in them, and sadly, they can't return them and get a new one for free every time it breaks now.

As requested by a listener, Emma, this week, the sisters are talking about flirting! Sydnee is a self-proclaimed "expert" in flirting, Rileigh believes she is somewhere in the middle, and Teylor is very open about how bad she thinks she is at flirting. From the ~look~ to the mixtapes, flirting spans the ages, just like our sisters, so let's talk about it!

The new Netflix original, "Everything Sucks!" was basically designed to be discussed on our podcast, so here we are discussing it! On our podcast! From stereotypical 90s fashion to the 90s being /that/ 90s, we've covered it all, so of course, there will be spoilers if you haven't seen the show yet. But, it only takes five hours to watch the whole first season, so we'll see you when you're done binging.
