Two Thirds Women Speakers

This week on a very special and Jonless episode of Secretly Timid, we replace our co-host with Juliet, a queer woman, and see if anyone notices.  We talk about expectations in dating, give our takes on the blue ripple/wave, racist computer programs, and our slowly evolving historical institutions.
