Episode 70: Doohickeys & Thingamajigs

October 3, 2018

 

INTRO 

Watch out there now! Before getting into the show we discussed which Spice Girl we'd be, which Hogwart's house we're all in, and we recapped the podcast music battle that we were in over the weekend against Sweats & Suits (and by recap, we mean a play-by-play). Last week's This or That asked who had the better peak between Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady; our listeners overwhelmingly chose Kobe and we all agreed with them.
