Sometimes when you’re having trouble figuring out how to narrow down your choices, you do a bracket. Well, you do that if you’re Anna. Alene likes to ask everyone she knows what they think. In this episode, we do both.

In this episode, we celebrate the New Year by revealing some of Anna’s tremendous ego, talking about the concept of the “guilty pleasure,” and debating the past/present/future of queer ladies on television.

ALSO! We are going to be taping LIVE (that is to say, in the same place at the same time with live music from Julie Jurgens) in Chicago on February 2nd! More details to come!
