Episode 9 Show Notes: Reluctant Consumption and Travel Habits

Download link.

This episode we catch up on where we are with It so far, Carolyn’s experience watching a third season episode of the Gilmore Girls with zero prior knowledge. Then we tackle @anneheathen‘s question about how you handle recommendations that you don’t really want to follow through on and tackle the question of entertainment while traveling. It turns out we are both contrary and probably won’t believe the hype. We also detour into what we love/hate that everyone else hates/loves.
