35. Pop Culture Brain Candy (with Brianna Wellen)


Today’s episode is SO MUCH FUN! Karen & Katie decide to add a little alcohol to the mix as they welcome Brianna Wellen, Chicago Reader’s culture editor (and all around fabulous human), to talk about the best escapism TV shows and movies right now. OMG the list is incredible (see below for links to everything talked about). 

The trio covers topics far beyond pop culture, and get deep into a therapy chat and even rattle off some of their hall-pass celebs.
