At the time of this recording, most of the violence had yet to occur so they will dive into this deeper on Episode 43. In the Makeup Minute, Amy touts Lorac’s TANtalizer and Paula loves E.L.F.’s eyeshadow primer.

Let’s play catch up, shall we?

In late spring, the brain trust that is We Are Still Hungry, Inc. made a strategic decision to scale back on this site. When we compared site visits to the time it took to create the posts, it was an easy decision.

Episodes 30 and 31: Falling into Your Cracks 52 Times

Those of you who rely on the site to listen to the podcast are extremely vocal when you can’t get to your preshus new episodes. But sometimes life takes over and creating these blog posts when 99% of our listeners use a podcast subscription can be pushed to the back burner. So, our compromise is to combine episodes for this site.

Thus, I present to you, Episode 30: So Stuff Doesn’t Fall Into Your Cracks and 31: FIFTY TWO TIMES.

Thanks for listenin’, y’all! Stay hungry.
