Nancy Rommelmann and Sarah Hepola are back! Talking about:

+ Why they love the Ben Dreyfuss essay "The World is Not Full of Monsters"

+ What videos they watch in the bathtub

+ "Who is Max Boot? Did he write for Gawker?"

+ And speaking of Gawker...

+ That NYT interview with 8 "conservative" men

+ Who's allowed to say the C-word (anyone!) and why they're in favor of bringing back "twat" (it's funny!)

+ The hell that are women's spas and why the one they'd open would be called Fuck Your Intentions

+ Are 100% of hitchhikers murdered by serial killers or nah?

+ Virtual romances can be intense!

+ Why Nancy is the "#1 Nancy" of the two Sarah knows. (The other is a robot.)

And much more! Listen here or on Apple or your pod-catcher of choice
