#43: LIVE: "Maybe I Like Arguing with People on Facebook", with guest Candice Quinerly

This week, Cher and James are LIVE at Joliet Area Historical Museum, hanging out with the lovely Candice Quinerly, discussing growing up in the suburbs and/or the city respectively, dealing with racism at a young age, and how to handle micro-aggressions. In Open Mic, we debate about internet fighting, trash reality TV, and hyper-local restaurant institutions in Joliet. And lastly, in Open Call, Candice is turning a year older, Cher talks about a great TV show, and James embraces his love for an essential oil.
