Episode Notes

In this hectic world, sometimes you need something uncomplicated to make it through. ~Very~ uncomplicated. Special guest Bolu Babalola is our guide, helping us discover the wonders of Basic Baes, aka thirst objects that don’t need much, yet somehow give us everything, bless them. Drake, Kofi Siriboe, Brad Pitt, Jamie Dornan…we’re looking at you, boos. DON’T @ US.

We also talk about a group called the “You Thought!s” – people who make you realize that sometimes apparently basic waters run deep. As always, we have a juicy [REDACTED], and of course, Fanfic Wars.

At a time when men are Not Doing Great, Bim and Nichole want to keep asking questions about Hollywood inclusion and opportunity, through illuminating and hilarious conversations with special guests, original fan fic designed to make you sit up, and of course [REDACTED]. Bring a straw… and come thirst with us.
