Agony and Eggplants

This week on a very special episode of Secretly Timid, despite being Jonless, Otieno & Sara are back and we acquire two other delightful guests with whom we discuss Texans saying something when they see something, the non-revelation that video games contain misogyny, and that Batman is a useless power fantasy.  Oh and apparently we have no idea how to operate our recording software, so yay editing?

Digging For Peanuts

This week on a very special episode of Secretly Timid, we remain Sarahless but she sent us a comforting care package.  This comes in handy when Megan discusses how the government doesn’t care about your student loan debit and Otieno suggests there’s a concerted attempt to overwhelm the progressive US electorate with garbage data.  But hey, vote Blue ya’ll.  Seriously.  For now.
