Hosted by Preston Thomas & Renata Martin
Monica Chen presents “The Uncomfortable Truth About Your Picture Perfect Holiday Meal.” Every year we enjoy picture perfect holiday meals, but we know Pilgrims and Indians didn’t sit down together and enjoy turkey.

Jenn Frohlich presents “Physical Methods of Euthanasia,” for all those times when you wish you knew how to kill an animal (humanely) with your bare hands…
Krystal Thomas-White presents “How to talk to Grandma about her pee.” Everyone is sitting around the holiday dinner table, laughing and talking. Suddenly someone makes a particularly funny joke. Everyone busts up laughing. But before things settle down, you notice that grandma has quietly excused herself from the table.

I going to teach you to talk about this taboo subject so that the women in your life might seek treatment.
