The first brunch in March has the ladies chatting Instagram dating, Judd Apatow’s “LOVE”, and over the shoulder boulder holders. Sara avoids shaving, Rachael comes clean about her lack of lox love, and sketchy financial institutions are deemed gross.

Finally, say you’ll be there — the Spice Girls make a comeback for 90s nostalgia.
This February brunch Sara and Rachael listen to Lena Dunham’s new podcast, discuss their favorite First Ladies, and the joys of senioritis. There’s no bread and cheese like New York bread and cheese, Sara gets into cartoons, and Rachael is won over by arranged marriages. Cat calls (sarcastic or not) are deemed gross, while 90s nostalgia is all about making mixtapes from the radio (complete with the DJ in between songs).

The ladies get deep this brunch when they chat internet life vs. real life, the joys of the brunch & nap lifestyle, and their top 10 TV shows of all time. Feral cats and garlic bread aftermath make the Gross List, while the Fresh Prince of Bel Air has the ladies awkwardly rapping for the first and certainly last time on the podcast.

December brunch arrives as the ladies discuss recharging as an extrovert/introvert, Airbnb horror stories, and revert back to shine theory.

This Sunday, comedian Taylor Tomlinson joins the ladies to chat phone anxiety, comfy flats, and a love for all things Target. Poor plane etiquette, selfish sidewalk behavior, and shopping vs. adopting are deemed gross. Finally, it’s a battle of east vs. west as the ladies stake their claims: Shake Shack or In & Out? DisneyWorld or DisneyLand? But where the coasts divide, Mr. Feeny unites.
