#30: 'Introvert Together,' with Jenn & Trin of Friendshipping


This week, Cher and James gush over their mutual love for their guest, Jenn and Trin of the Friendshipping Podcast. They discuss how to be a friend, making friends, and generally being a decent human person. During Open Mic, Cher and James debate Jenn and Trin on when to end a friendship, IRL vs. Digital Hangs, and making work friends. And lastly, in Open Call, Jenn loves a new Netflix series, Trin makes a fashion statement, James discovered a movie franchise, and Cher revisits an old TV show.
