We spend considerable time on this episode breaking down all the fun we had at The Popcast Live! Show (Melanie) and The Happy Hour Live (Sophie), and then somehow we manage to segue into a discussion about McDonald's chicken options, a topic that we feel certain we have never before covered.

We also (apparently) have A LOT OF THOUGHTS about this season of Southern Charm. So whether you watch or not, you're going to get yourself a little bit of a Southern Charm education.

And even if reality television isn't your thing, never fear, because this is the episode where Melanie recounts a magical encounter she once had with a McGriddle, and let me just assure you that we'll all be better for it.

Hope you enjoy!
