This week on the pod everyone caught the frick up because we’ve been off a week. Making a mental note to repeatedly record in the evenings from now one because we were ON ONE. The Vodcast team is making some awesome changes (probs selling pics of Mirandas boobs but IDK). We discuss our feelings on Fyre Fest, Mac n Cheese, AirPods, and hottest porn categories of 2018. Apparently a bunch of people are into Fortnite porn and I’m… not here for it…? Also, Miranda goes on a date with Shock Collar and you need to know the deets.

This week on the pod we chat about a lot of random shit. SHOCKINGGG! Miranda and Michael bond over gut issues while Madeleine laments over her allergy to chickpeas. Miranda dishes on her new lease on dating... which is basically that dating in LA is still hard and there’s nothing new. #Relatable. We discuss that dating doesn’t HAVE to end in tragedy but somehow people always act like you killed their family when you run into them at a coffee shop a year later... you know? In other news, don’t eat protein bars, support your local coffee shop, and get a dog. LISTEN RESPONSIBLY!

Zoey 101? More like Zoey 911!!

Welcome back to the highest rated political podcast in the literal world. HAHA. We talk about what’s REALLY important, Nickelodeon drama. Mads tells the team all about the scandal of Zoey 101 behind closed doors and it might be falling on deaf ears (a la Michael gives no fucks), but this really opens up the floodgates to each of our individual bullying stories. We collectively realize that no one is safe from the evil middle school and highschool girls or boys, but we do admit, life gets better. Trust me y’all, those bullies will be bald and teen preggo in no time. LISTEN RESPONSIBLY WE LOVE YOU.
