Mia's playing a moderator here to get their hot takes on this very, serious, issue.

S2E16. Fast Food: Love It or Hate It?

We LOVE fast food. And as you listen through our convo, you will see that some of us love it more than the others. Why do you think fast food has become indispensable in our lives? Is it the modern lifestyle so fast paced that we don't have time to make food? Is it the tempting price points? The nostalgia? The feels it gives us?  We also just want to say that we're not advocating for fast food, but simply acknowledging that we do enjoy eating it every once in a while :D. Do you have a go-to fast food joint?   As always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected]: @frndsnextdoorDan: @therealdanchenMia: @msmiaaaThomas: @nomastmas ...

S2E38. Do I Have Spinach in My Teeth?

Some of us may think that it would lead to an awkward situation (we don't blame ya!) but we think the end your friend would appreciate it. By the same token, what are some of the things you would not know unless someone tells you? Would you like them to tell you, whether it is spinach in between your teeth or something that could potentially be more awkward?
