Special guest Jordan Morris is back and he's brought a quiz. How well do Alison and the Thursday gang (Jenna Kim Jones, Allan Moss, Daniel Quantz and Jeff Fox) know Jordan? Also where in the world is Greg Heller? Plus Alison's licking disgusting lamb flavored chips and crying in the recovery room, Jenna has pregnancy brain, we're over Vine, everyone's unwrapping cinnamon roles and we're talking ear wax. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

 

A note about this episode (a #FERTALERT): A day after recording, Alison found out that the egg she was told had a "very low" chance of fertilizing actually DID fertilize overnight and now she and Daniel are happy to say they have another high quality embryo. This will only make sense if you listen to the episode and/or are Alison's doctor.
