From Thirst Aid Kit


Episode Notes

We got some pals in for this week’s bumper episode: our friends from Nancy! That’s right — Kathy Tu and Tobin Low from the acclaimed podcast came to talk about thirst and joy and representation and yes, more thirst. On the docket: the incredible way Angelina Jolie came into her own, the astonishing symmetry of Manny Jacinto’s jawline and cheekbones, Janelle Monae’s supreme competence being the sexiest thing on earth, and Cary Fukunaga’s uncanny ability to make a turtleneck the hottest sartorial choice going. AMONG OTHER THINGS. No Fanfic Wars, but! A reader-submitted drabble to get you through the week. ::eyes emoji::
