Bonus Episode: Russia Hacked Our Pop Star Lesbianism

We took a week off so Jetta could get high and show Lauren some clips of wrestling styles from around the world, from the cozy apartments of people with a fetish for headlocks to the hallowed sumo halls of Japan where modern-day Samurai slap the shit out of each other. What Lauren discovered intrigued, inspired, confused and appalled her. Follow the show on Facebook Check out the show's website Follow the show on Instagram...

Season 2 Episode 3: That's Capitalism For Ya!

What's a little enema cuckolding between friends? This week, Lauren and Jetta review Season 2 episode 3 of Netflix's GLOW.

EDITORS NOTE: Part of the recap was entered into Google Docs as a footnote, so it appeared at the bottom of every page of our notes, and so one scene is discussed out of order.
