Happy 30th Episode everybody! Our scrappy little episode enters the decade of wine, Netflix, and cats/dogs with a Hometown Read from Host Rie. Take the Staten Island Ferry and actually disembark for a tale of two ungrateful teenagers and the sweetest old man in the world. We talk high school shenanigans, kids these days, and assigned reading while lamenting the fate of the Pigman. Oops. Unless you had it as assigned reading.

Oh boy. Terrible parents, elder abuse, grief, horrible 1960s zoos, casual and not-so-casual homophobia. Host Rie also rags on her hometown a bunch. It deserves it.
