#12: ‘Eating Alone at Subway’

In this episode, Cher and James discuss “doing the most” in one weekend, and the real feeling of FOMO, fear of missing out. In the aftershow, Cher talks about her love of a young Monica, and James discovered a new snack, from an old children’s television program. This is also our first week as a weekly format.
