I'm recovering from surgery (the surgery discussed on the podcast) and a little too out of it to write a good summary but there was #GalChat involving Alie Ward's cleansing conditioner, a discussion of Emma Gonzalez, Alison's adventures in advocating for herself, an overflowing wicker basket, bill pay chat which David Huntsberger was not into, honey, worm hollering, laser printers and more. Plus a round of Just Me Or Everyone. And the dogs Alie rescued are up for adoption!
