Episode 54: Easter Parade


Put on your Easter bonnet, with all the fills upon it, Katie and Wesleigh are talking Easter Parade! In honor of the holiday weekend we watch the 1948 musical featuring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. In this episode we talk friend zones, symbolic Easter pastries, Katie does at least 5 accents, Wesleigh might be a vampire (!?) and we have a very visceral reaction to THAT KISS.
