Trainwreck is the romcom full of all the things you didn’t know you wanted: Bill Hader as a love interest, Lebron as his BFF, and so much John Cena. In this week’s episode, your hosts discuss winter brunch date outfits, educational toys from our childhood, dating advice, and websites that no longer exist. Plus, Katie eats too much Valentine’s candy!
