In this week’s episode we are celebrating the first week of Pride month by talking about the history of Pride (it wasn’t always corporate floats!). We also discuss the killjoyful and hopeful takeaways from our country’s reversal on the Paris Climate Accord. We finish the episode by talking about what Summer S.A.D. (reverse S.A.D.) is. A bit of education, a bit of cloudiness, a bit of sunshine, a bit of therapy, and most importantly a bit of Raechel singing. ❤
Featured shout-out: Spencer for teaching us an audio trick that we will forever cherish (and use)
