Thirst Aid Kit

Dev Patel Glows Up

From Thirst Aid Kit

Episode Notes

Hunter Harris, Associate Editor at Vulture (and thirst critic extraordinaire) stops by the stude to help us shed some light on why Dev Patel is so dreamy. Maybe it’s his eyes like chocolate drops of sunshine, his mesmerizing glo-up from playing a foolish teen in Skins to the sensitive leading man in Lion, or maybe it’s everything. We also ask Hunter about her very important, very thirsty coverage of Call Me By Your Name and A Star Is Born, plus Fanfic Wars returns! This episode is super fluffy so grab a blanket and dive in, friends.
